    But as the Vikings were down 7-0 with about two minutes left until halftime, Emerald was on the Panthers’ 35-yard line. After throwing two consecutive incompletions, Isaiah Brown hit Justin Watson in the back of the end zone. The throw was the first of three for Brown, who led the Vikings to a 21-7 victory.
