The Vikes held onto multiple leads throughout most of the game, but allowed consecutive goals that sent the game into overtime. After forcing the game into overtime, Sherwood finished off the game with a goal.

“We can’t let teams hang around in the game,” goalie Jackson Parker said. “We had two goal leads twice in the game.”

The team was positive about their hustle in both regulation and overtime despite ultimately losing.

“The stakes are much higher and there’s a lot of pressure as the game ends,” Parker said. “We know we competed well that game and that we have to do that for the rest of the season.”

The Vikings are back on the road in their next game at St. Johns on April 7 at 7.
