Taking advantage of the long-weekend, the Vikings competed in Cleveland to play in the MLK Day weekend tournament. From Saturday, January 13 to Monday, January 15, the Vikes looked to come out on top in a pool of 4 teams. 

Starting with a game at 7:50 a.m. on Saturday, the Vikes battled Springboro. This marked the second time the two teams have met this season, and the Panthers pulled out the win. With a score of 6-1, the Vikes started the weekend 0-1. 

Looking to add a win to its record, the Maroon and Gray took on Strongsville at 4:10 p.m. on Saturday. The Vikes kept the game close, with 1-1 nearing the end of the first period. The Mustangs turned up the heat and scored 6 unanswered goals, leaving the score 7-1 when time ran out. 

On the second day, the Vikes faced Beavercreek at 9:50 a.m. The Vikings could not break through the Beavers’ defense, leaving them without a goal in the end. The game ended 5-0 in favor of Beavercreek. 

Because of their record, the Vikes returned to play Beavercreek at 9 a.m. on Monday, January 15. The Vikes held off the Beavers’ offense, for the score remained 0-0 in the third period. Midway through the final period, the Maroon and Grey received a penalty, giving Beavercreek the man-up advantage. The Beavers capitalized on this opportunity and scored, bumping the score to 1-0. Despite earning a power play late in the third period, the Vikes could not earn themselves a goal. The final score remained 1-0. 

The Vikings will return to action on Friday, December 19 at 7:10 p.m. at Chiller Dublin.
