JV Team #4 Seed in JV Championships; Varsity Resumes match at Ursuline (Future Viking Night Postponed)

The JV team has battled to a 4-5-1 record since returning from break and have earned themselves a #4 seed in the TAPPS JV Championships starting tomorrow morning.

The Lady Vikings will take on Ursuline at 9:00am at Doskocil Stadium.  The second semi-final will follow with Bishop Lynch taking on John Paul at 11:00am.

Winners advance to the Championship match at 2:30pm.  All matches are at Nolan Catholic.

The Lady Vikings have advanced to the post-season championship 2 of the last 3 years and looking to make it 3 of 4 after tomorrow morning.

The varsity team traveled to Ursuline tonight only to have to return tomorrow afternoon as the match was halted after 60 minutes of play with the Lady Vikings down 5-2.  The Bears jumped to an early 3-0 lead but before you know it the Lady Vikings fought back to get within one.

"I think we know what we are capable of coming out of the first half.  We have to be disciplined from back to front and there is now way around that," said LVS head coach Jay Fitzgerald.

As it stands in the Lady Vikings final regular season match of the season they live to play another day.   "When I saw the first lightning strike, it couldn't have been a better sign, " continued Fitzgerald.

The resumption of the match will take place tomorrow at 4:30pm at Ursuline from the 62nd minute with the Lady Vikings trailing by 3.

Due to the Lady Vikings having to travel to play tomorrow the Future Vikings Night planned for 5pm will move to another night.  Follow Us on Twitter and Instagram for future information @nolansoccer
