In addition to finding success offensively, the Vikings shut down the Trojans offense. The Vikes played aggressive on defense, giving the Trojans little time to set up their offense and forced multiple turnovers.

“We were able to crash in on the ball quickly and push them to their weak side so they could only shoot with their non-dominate hand,” defender Briann O’hara said.

When the Trojans did get shots off, goalies Claire Hisle and Lily Jacobson were able to save them.

The Vikes gave the Trojans little time on the attack because of long possessions and aggressive play by the squads midfielders.

The Vikes’ next game is against Urbana May 5 at 7:15 at home.
