vikes hoc

(ISN) – The Vikes travelled down to Cheney, Washington Friday October 10th

the Eastern Washington Eagles in a 2-game weekend series. The Eagles scored 2

goals in the first period taking a 2-0 lead going into the first intermission.

The Vikes battled hard in the second period and the puck started to bounce

their way. Adam Klein scored the first goal for the Vikes at 11:14 on the power play

to bring the Vikes within one. The Vikes controlled the play for the majority of the

second period, but were unable to tie the game leaving them down by one goal

going into the second intermission.

In the third period, the Vikes continued to work hard towards a comeback.

Vikes captain, Evan Warner, scored the tying goal on the power play from Cameron

Rowat and Chris Manhas. The Eagle’s leading scorer, Beau Walker, scored his

second goal of the game on a breakaway at 8:55 of the third period giving the

Eagle’s a 3-2 lead.

The Vikes were rewarded with their hard work when Dylan Hykawy tied the

game at 3 a piece at 4:34 of the third period. Both teams traded excellent late

scoring chances, but the Vikes prevailed. Vikes veteran center, Luciano Somerville,

won a neutral zone faceoff late in the period to Adam Klein who then made a nifty

pass to Shawn Mueller just inside the blue line. Shawn beat the Eagle’s goaltender

right under the glove, which ended up being the game-winning goal.

Vikes coach Steve Foster was very satisfied with the work ethic of the players

especially after the long bus ride. The Vikes players will need to play disciplined and

continue to work hard if they want to be successful in game 2 of the weekend series.
