The Lady Vikings gave a strong showing with several players going down with injuries in a very physical game.
This was a true team victory with several of the backup players having to step into key roles as the game wore on. The defense, consisting of Jordan Strickland in goal, along with Anna Garrett, Karley Eason, Hailey Eason, Brittany Milan and Abby George filling in for Kate Starnes in the second half played huge against an extremely dangerous offense for Neuse.
"When Kate when down with an injury near halftime, we knew we had to play with heart and grit to secure the win. Maria Liles and Chloe Alston filled in today and held their own nicely in a big game," stated head Vikings coach Tim George. "They've worked all year to be ready for a day like today and it paid off," George added.
Goals for Halifax were scored by Whitney George with two and Maddie Suiter. Abby George had two assists.
With the #1 seed being upset today by #9 seeded Hickory Christian (10-3-3), this allows the Lady Vikings a home game this Tuesday hosting the #9 seed Hickory Christian. Time TBA.
