The Vikings lit up the scoreboard with two goals ten minutes into the game from forward Emmanuel Kanneh on a direct chip and midfielder Vegas Kastberg on a free kick.

The Falcons responded shortly after with a goal off of a corner.

Captain Sebatian Cahe sealed the win with a goal off a corner kick, giving the Vikes a lead the Falcons couldn’t catch up to.

The midfield played a crucial role in the win by intercepting passes and keeping the ball in Whitman’s offensive zone for a majority of the game.

“As a team we didn’t play that well but we still got chances to score,” Cahe said. “The sign of a good team is one that gets scoring chances.”

The boys host the Rockville Rams Sept. 17 for their next game.
