Vikings Win Home Game Forced To The Road (9-27-12)

Due to a series of violent thunderstorms, the Vikings lost their home field advantage on September 26th and had to move the match to Fenton, MO Soccer Park's artificial turf at the last minute, but the change of venue did not deter the Vikes from playing one of their best games of the season culminating in a 3 - 0 victory against St. Louis Community College.
Pete Grindel opened the scoring at the 33rd minutes by burying a shot at close range that was provided by Lance Kohler's cross from the left wing. Then, two minutes from time in the first half, Chad Otec drove the ball into the net from just outside the penalty area.
The Vikings controlled the ball with precise passing and applied constant pressure in the first half. There were a number of scoring chances in the first half that sailed just wide or high.

Nine minutes into the second half, Danny Arrazola netted a well-struck ball from 30 yards and the game was no longer in doubt. A penalty kick was awarded for a foul in the penalty area later in the second half, but the shot was stopped by the Archer’s keeper. Coach Garza was able to use all his available players in what was a true team victory.  Keepers Josh Richter and Zeke Sevick combined to hold the opponents scoreless.

The Vikings leave this weekend for two games in Georgia with a record of 5 - 3 - 1, having now won their first two games in the MCCAC conference and NJCAA Region XVI.
