Vikings defeat Trojans on the road

On Tuesday, The Vikings boys varsity soccer team took on the Atlantic Trojans on their field and shut them down, 7-1. Five of the seven goals on the night came from seniors Ramon Ciurana and Raydden Grobe. Ciurana had two, while Grobe had three.

“Ramon is our exchange student and brings a lot of skill and excitement to our game,” said Vikings Head Soccer Coach James Johnson. “Grobe is a great athlete and a great leader on and off the field. Teams try to shut him down, but in most cases, he's going to get his.”

With this victory, it marks five consecutive wins for the Vikings, while putting them at second place in the Western Iowa Standings behind the Treynor Cardinals.

“We've done the work to this point and put ourselves in a great position to play meaningful soccer late in the season,” he said. “We have a brutal run with Treynor, Harlan and Underwood to finish out the year, but we look forward to the challenge to get us geared up for a postseason run.”

The Vikings will take on the Treynor Cardinals who are 13-1 overall and have won 11 consecutive matches. Johnson credited the Cardinals for how talented they are.

“Treynor has a solid team, coach Jason McIntosh does a great job with them and this will be a battle,” he added. “They don't give up many goals so we are going to have to take advantage of every opportunity to put it in the net.”
