Scandinavian Vikings – Irish Exchange 6-3

Vikings securing 8th place…

Vikings sink sorry Irish

Vikings got off to a flying start and were ahead inside 5 minutes thanks to Neil, who fired home on a Chris delivery, to make it 1-0. The Vikings continued to create opportunities, but was lacking sharpness in front of goal. Instead the Irish were able to equalize after some sloppy Viking defending. It would take to just before half-time before Vikings could find the back of the net again. This time through Anas, with Chris as the provider. Yet again though, the Irish had an answer and were level after scoring on a free-kick. 2-2 was also the score at the break.

The second half started off as the first, with Vikings dominating the game. Vikings also got ahead in the 60 th minute. Anas was again on the score sheet, finishing off with a toe poke after turning the Irish defenders inside-out. Perfect delivery this time by Mofok. But the lead wouldn’t last for long and for a third time the Irish were able to equalize, 3-3. The Vikings really felt that this was a game they should win and before they had a chance to start panicking, they were ahead. Yet again it was Anas there to score, and yet again Chris was the provider. The goal completed a Anas hattrick, showing that he still got what it takes for a 20+ season. The game was far from over though, and it took some heroic defending, and a Bretiner save on the goal line, to keep the Irish out. 5-3 came after Chris was able to turn a couple of Irish defenders and fire home, much to the relief of the Viking players. The nail in the coffin came just before the final whistle when Anas got his fourth (!) of the day after Mofok had hit the post. It wasn’t the greatest of games, but another 3 points on the board puts us in pole for the race for the 8 th position.

Scandinavian Vikings – Patana 4-1

Lethal Anas downs Patana

Another day another win! But to be honest this might have been the worst performance so far this season. Already from the start it looked a bit sloppy all over the pitch and that Viking spirit we’ve seen in recent games, wasn’t to be found. Still we managed to create chances and Anas had two golden opportunities to score before a Patana defender obviously felt sorry for the man, and kick the ball via his face into the goal. 2-0 was to follow shortly after and again it was Anas, this time making no mistake in front of the goal. Assisted, would you believe it, by our very own keeper, Michael Madsen. Vikings were also able to make it 3-0 before the referee put an end to a miserable first half. And the scorer? Yeah, you guessed it: Anas. Norway bound Stein, who played his last game in a while (yes Stein, you better be coming back!) was the provider with a beautiful assist. If the first half was bad the second wasn’t much better. Patana managed to cut the lead to 3-1, but never really looked dangerous enough to threaten the Viking lead. Anas finished them off with a fourth goal, that’s 8 in the last two games and it brings his tally to 24 for the season and puts him in the contention for the golden boot.

Fellows, we really need to up our game and get a point in one of our last two games if we are to claim the 8 th spot in the table. (it is important since they apparently are going to cut the table in half after the season) We are currently on 38 points with Sunbelt 8 points behind, on 30, with on game in hand. They are playing BSL, Patana and the Japanese in their last 3 games though, which could possibly put them on 39 points and have them overtake us on the last day of the season. One more point will probably be enough for us as we have +19 goals on them. So let’s get back to the fighting we showed against Londoners and we’ll surely get (at least) that point we need!
