On Saturday, the Vikes suffered a ten point defeat against St. John’s, but recovered and defeated the Rockets by 10 in their highest scoring game of the season.

“The offense got it together this game,” defender Nick Higgins said. “They moved the ball more, ran the plays better, and were able to pick apart their defense.”

In addition, the Vikings’ defense was stingy, allowing them to maintain a lead throughout the contest. Several defenders, including Joey Schaefer, excelled in place of injured starters.

“Chris [Greenberg] was hurt, and Joey really stepped up.” Higgins said. “But we still know what we need to improve on, especially for the big games coming up.”

The Vikes’ next game is at home against the Wootton Patriots Wednesday at 7:15.
