The Vikings women faced this Sunday, the Spartanz, who won their first match very impressive against the Ravens. The girls started well and build a comfortable lead throughout the first half (6:4, 12:7, 18:10).
In the second half the Spartanz seemed to be better in the game, but today the Vikings did not back down and won by 31:17.
Though we won convincingly, there is lots of work to do to improve our team play.

The Vikings men faced today the Hutt Hawks. The game started going back and forward an no team could build a lead with more than two goals until the last few minutes of the half. The Vikings went with a 18:13 into the half time break.
At the beginning of the second half the Hawks fought their way back into the game (22:19, 24:22) before the Vikings retook the momentum and closed our the game (31:25, 34:30).
Today our defence did seem to be like a swiss chesse – holes everywhere – but we were able to get away with a win. Moving forward we need to work on our team defence.
