Sunny afternoon game on Saturday at Dempsey against Hotspurs.
With most of the players back from a well-earned Christmas holiday the Vikings were excited to start up the second half of the season and continue the good form.
The game started off with two even teams easing into the game – trying to figure out how to play on uneven pitch at Dempsey. Mid-way through the first half a loose ball ends up with a Spurs player just 2 meters outside the Vikings box. The Hotspurs manages to get a shot on a goal and after a few bounces of the ground the ball ends in the side net, 1-0 for Spurs.
The Vikings struggle for the rest of the first half to produce chances and everyone agrees to come back in the second half with full commitment and Viking spirit.
The Vikings gradually dominates the game more and more as the second half progresses. Despite producing big opportunities for Jesper, Tommie, US and Leslie we didn’t manage to score a goal and the game finished 1-0 for Hotspurs.
Disappointing start for the Vikings to the second half of the season – we hope to bounce back quickly and will fight for 3 points next weekend.
Thank you to the supporters, Hotspurs and the referees for a fair game.
