After a less than optimal start to the second half of the season the Vikings players were eager to get back to the winning ways.
The Vikings team started in a 4-5-1. US took over for Tommie in front and new guy Fredrik made his debut on the defensive midfield. It was a hard-fought battle during the 90 minutes and both teams created chances until the very end. After 30 minutes US scored the opener but the Lions made the equalizer on a great free-kick from the left side of the penalty box.
Five minutes into the second half Domino kicks a free kick and hits the post. Leslie is quick to pick up the rebound and scores to 2-1 for Vikings. 15 minutes later Jonas gets the ball in the box and hard pressed by two defenders he manages to put the ball over the keeper into the side net – 3-1 Vikings! It felt like a comfortable win at this stage but Gaelic Lions bounced back after 10 mins with the 3-2 goal. The fighting for the midfield continued and with 10 minutes left the #5 player from the Gaelic team received his second yellow + red card. Despite being one man down the Gaelic Lions continued and had a huge chance 2 minutes before time to make the equalizer. Fortunately Eu Jin made amends from the 2-1 goal and made great save to secure the 3-2 win for Vikings.
Very important 3 points for the Vikings and a well-deserved MOM for young Jonas.
Thank you to the supporters, Gaelic Lions and the referees for a fair game.
