The Vikings avoid the shutout season with first win in two years

DERUYTER – Coming into their final game of the season, the Otselic Valley Vikings boys soccer team had slid to a sub-par record of 0-14-1, however, their last game proved to be their very best of the season when they downed DeRuyter on the road by a score of 1-0.

Coming into the Oct. 17, matchup, Otselic Valley had previously fell to Blessed Virgin Mary by a score of 6-0 on Oct. 6.

“The score unfortunately made the game look more lop sided than it was,” said OV head coach Jacob Preston.

Preston and his squad then suffered another defeat at the hands of McGraw on Oct. 7, by a score of 8-0.

“McGraw was a much better team and dominated all game long. It was our senior night, and we recognized our two seniors, Peter Kalin, injured player who has been our score keeper season long, and Titus Reichard who has been senior captain and our utility player who plays all over the field,” said coach Preston.
