[score id=”45963″ align=”right”] Boys soccer dominated rival B-CC Barons 2–1. The win for the Vikes snapped their two game losing streak, putting them at 2–3 on the season.

The rain couldn’t cool the fiery Whitman offense, with steady pressure being maintained throughout the match. Forwards Andreas Djurhuus and Adam Deutchman accounted for all the teams goals, providing offensive firepower that had been missing in recent matches.

“Our attacking three finally pulled it together, we had a bunch of opportunities, we finally capitalized,” Deutchman said. “Andreas had a great game his early goal really set the team up for a win, and scoring first was something we’ve struggled with in the past.”

Evan Goldsholle and Daniel Kjartannsson, also rotated in on attack who both had there fair share of scoring opportunities.

Although the Viking offense was the key to their victory, the defense and midfield stayed solid, limiting mistakes in a game where the rain-soaked ball was tough to control.

“I thought we were much stronger defensively, we did well at shutting down their best players, and our midfield did a great job of staying compact and winning balls in the air,” goalie Ian Atkinson said. “This win is a great boost for the team going ahead, we’re looking forward to continuing tonight’s success.”

The Vikings travel to the 5–0 Walter Johnson Wildcats, who also beat B-CC, at 7:15 on Thursday night.
