In an out of conference game on Nov. 30, the hockey team (3–1–1) took down the Landon Bears 4–3.

The Bears are reigning champs of their hockey league. They were also the Washington Post’s number one ranked team, so it was a huge victory for the team even though it was out of conference.

On Friday, the team blew out the DC stars (0–0–5) 10–2 in a high scoring game.

The Vikes started out the game strong, scoring four goals within the first quarter. In the second quarter the squad remained dominant with another four goals up on the board. Closing out the game the Vikings netted two more goals, securing a 10–2 victory.

Next, the Vikings take on the Walter Johnson Wildcats on Friday.
