Game day #5

Another Sunday, another 5 games, 3 of them with Vikings teams involved …

Men Competition

Vikings HC Danes vs Vic Uni HC Lions 38:11
The Danes facing the Vic Uni development team. No big surprises, well-rounded team effort. Though lots of unnecessary turnovers which did drove the coach nuts.

Vikings HC Norse vs Northern Aguilas HC 15:30
The surprise team of the season (so far), the Norse, versus the 201 7 champion. On paper a clear constellation and at the end a clear win for the favourite. Though the Norse fought 60 minutes and challenged the Aguilas wherever they could. Great performance and effort from the Norse men showing that giving up was not an option. Also two debuts, welcome to the team – Alexandre and Edmund.

Women Competition

Vikings HC vs Hutt Valley Hunters HC  45:26
Not much to say other than the Hunters only had 5 players today and the Vikings women team had. The Hunters played bravely all game long but ultimately couldn’t keep up. On a sad note – Amelie Krewel and Siri Kolbeinsen have finsihed their exchange year and are now on their way back to their respective home countries – bon voyage and thanks for helping our club to grow an to compete!
