Wellington League – game 15 (men) / game 12 (women)

Men
Last game of the season.

I think this game reflects the Vikings season quite perfect. We start terribly are quickly 3:11, 4:13 behind and starting to claw back mid first half. Successfully we close down up to two goals and up in halftime with 13:17.
Second half was than a nail biter with a lucky end for the Hutt Hawks who sticked in there and kept the Vikings at least one goal behind.
From a Vikings point of view we missed way too many open shots and allowed to many fast breaks in the first half , apart from that we played a strong defense for the last 45 minutes of the game and we had some good scenes showing off our teamwork in attack.

Thanks to all players who played in Vikings red this season, it was a bit like a rollercoaster ride but we made it and I think we truly improved in our teamwork in attack.

For the Vikings played:
James W, ; Michael W 2, Matthias H 3, Daniel T 9, Sam K 2, Stefan F 6, Jun B 3/2,  Lachlan H, Pierre T 1, Nico P 3

Next is the season final playing the Wellington Open (weekend 28th/29th September) at the ASB Sports Centre

Women
Final league for the Vikings women team ended in a disappointing 11:16 defeat. The opponent (the Spartanz women) were not really better than us but more effective with their goal chances. Still the girls can be proud of what they have achieved this year as  lot players played their first season and the whole team showed passion and huge improvements. I am looking forward to next year.

For the Vikings played:
Shannon M; Catherine G 2, Stefanie S 4 Maddy H 3, Rose P, Jane H, Alex M 2

Next is the season final playing the Wellington Open (weekend 28th/29th September) at the ASB Sports Centre
