After week six out west the Rocky Mountain Division has 3 teams ties with 16 points while the surprise expansion, Vikings are looking up but not by much. The Vikings look to a tough weekend this past one but came out proving that they can play with anyone. The newly formed squad skated away with their first two regulation wins and a loss in a shootout for 7 points.
The Vikings earned a well-deserved split with division leading Thunder after losing game one and taking advantage of several Thunder penalties to win game 2.
The team came back on Saturday night to take a physical game 1 from perennial powerhouse, Parker Prowlers and then watched as Game 2 unfolded into a shootout that gave the Prowlers 2pts and the Vikes 1. “All in all we had a pretty good weekend. We need to play well to beat some of these teams and we did both nights but we are not content on just playing well, we are looking to get into the playoffs and then see what happens. We have a good group in this locker room and we are not expecting to be done with our season in December,” said Vikings goaltender, Tyler Lopez.
This coming weekend the Stallions make the trip back down to Colorado Springs to take on both Springs teams as they will take on the Thunder at 3pm and then these same Vikings at 715pm. Check back to the PIHA site for all updates on all divisions in the Professional Inline Hockey Association.
