Congratulations to the Vikings PW03 Central States team for taking home the big prize in this weekend's Rumble on the Rink pre-season tournament in Detroit.
The boys went 3-0 in round robin play, taking down the Livonia Knights, London Jr Knights and the Novi Ice cats along the way. The semi-final game saw a rematch with the Livonia Knights. Trailing 4-1 late in the 3rd, the Vikings mounted a huge comeback, tallying 3 goals in the last 2 minutes to tie the game and securing the win on the first shift into OT. The Vikings would then carry this surge into the final, defeating the Chicago Hawks 6-0 to take home the championship. Great job Vikings!
The Vikings PW A1 and Squirt AA also had great showings, advancing to the finals before falling to take Runner-up in their respective age levels. The Bantam AA team also played very well this weekend, advancing to the Semi-final in a talented bracket before falling.
Overall, the Vikings went 14-11-1 in this very challenging pre-season tournament. Way to go Vikings!
