Last game in 2016 for Singapore Vikings ended like most other games in the second half of the year: 3 points for the Vikings!

Good to get out for a bit of exercise this Sunday after a great Vikings Christmas party Friday night with a bit too much of snaps for most of us - or at least good to get out and clarify who had the most severe blackout during the night. When this was settled, the coach was ready with the line-up and tactical pep-talk with a clear message: let´s give it 110% and put a high pressure in the first 10 mins to avoid repeating the nightmare starts we have had in the last two games.
Fortunately this worked out well - we played a very good first half with goals from Brian US and the young giant Simon. Actually we should have scored more whereas YDM only had a few good shots from the distance - everything else was sweeped away by our backline that played a very good game.
2-0 at halftime.
Second half was much more in YDMs control as we gave away too much possession and with a 2-1 goal already after five minutes, the game was open again. In the previous couple of seasons, we have lost a lot of points in the last 15 minutes, but fortunately this tendency has changed so far this year. Same thing today where we managed to keep the score at 2-1 all the way although it was not a good half from our side and we forced Mikael to show great keeper skills in a couple of situations towards the end.
Another 3 points that secure us a Christmas holiday in a shared top spot as a minimum.
MOM for Brian US after a display that obviously showed that he should start drinking more Snaps! HAPS HAPS HAPS!
Excellent half year - let´s go all-in on continuing this trend in the new year although the competition is very tough in this end of the table!
Thanks to YDM and the ref for a good game.
