The Vikings hockey learned the importance of taking every matchup seriously this past weekend as they split the home and away series with the Macewan Griffins. Coming into Friday’s matchup at Encana, Macewan sat at the bottom of the ACAC, but were able to double up on the Vikings that night, 8-4, for their first win of the season. Saturday night in Leduc showcased a much stronger effort from the Vikings as they steamrolled the Griffins 7-2. The Vikings dominated the from start to finish. Both MacEwan goals were scored on their Power-Play, while Vikings spread out their attack all night. Torrie Dyck was Game Star with 2 more goals (1 short-handed) and an assist as he continues to lead the ACAC in scoring after the first 10 games. Dan Hope added a goal and 3 assists for a 4 point night while Travis Simpson scored his first goal in his ACAC career. Colin Stebner was very solid in goal as he helped the team rebound from Friday’s poor performance.
The split moves the Vikings to 6-3-1, and fourth place in League standings.
