The first game of the season kicked off on a blistery hot day. The Viking boys started a little slow getting scored on in the first five minutes. However, in the remaining minutes of the first half Tanner Reo decided it was not how this game was going to go down. He subsequently went on a tear to score three goals.
Teammate Nolan Maxwell, who sacrificed his own happiness for the good of the team, contributed significantly in the first half. Normally playing an offensive position but seeing his team struggling defensively, Norman stepped up to play sweeper and kept the team's back line strong for the rest of the game.
At halftime Voyager lead by a score of 3 to 2. Rotating subs in and out of the game to keep fresh feet, Voyager's Coach inserted Bryant Gilliam in the second half. Bryant followed-up by finishing a shot by a teammate that was deflected by the opponent's goalie for a Viking score.
Coach Heather Bonawitz noted post-game. "Our team did a great job of passing and gelled together as a team. Playing for the first time as a team, they played much better than any adult team I have seen play."
