U16's Win Championship over Chargers 3-2 in 4 OTs.
You've heard the term "Let's play two" in baseball I'm sure, but in hockey it's a little more difficult than that. Especially when you play two in one. That's what the Vikings and Chargers U16 teams did on Friday night as the two faced off in the NIHL Championship game. At the end of regulation the score was tied 2-2. With both teams laying it on the line, the two teams skated in to the first overtime, and then the second. Keep in mind these are full period overtimes, 15 mins each. After an ice cut, the two teams returned for the third OT. Although there were chances at both ends, the game moved to a 4th OT. Early in the 4th OT the Vikings ended the game on a shot from the slot to become NIHL Champions. Way to go boys!
Last weekend the Pee Wee Gold team skated into the NIHL finals vs. the South Bend Irish, with the hopes of a title. The boys fought hard for the three periods but once again, three periods was not enough to settle this contest. The two teams faced off for overtime where the action went back and forth the entire extra session. As the clock ticked down to end the first OT, the Irish were able to get the game winner with :07 seconds on the clock to get the win. Conrgats to the Pee Wee Gold team on their second place finish.
Once again overtime was needed to see who would capture the flag at the NIHL Playoffs, as the Vikings Squirt Gold Team faced off against the Wildkits in the Consolation game. with the game tied 1-1 in the final minute of regulation, the Wildkits raced down the ice and scored to take the lead. As the clock ticked down to under :30 seconds to play, the Vikings pulled the goalie and with a relentless forecheck, the Vikings scored to even the game at 2-2 and force overtime. In overtime, the Wildkits grabbed a loose puck in the slot and drove it home as they won the game by a score of 3-2. It was a hard fought game by both teams. Congrats to the Vikings Squirt Gold Team on capturing the 4th Place flag in the NIHL Playoffs.
