Weathering the storm

Vikings overcome adversity to stay in hunt for CAL title

(Continued)

With just over five minutes left to play, the Vikes showed they still had some fight left in them as Wolcik shot a missile past Cardillo’s left side, assisted by Donley, to give Triton the victory.

“We’ve been all right in our third periods,” said Wile. “Even in losses. These third periods are very, very important. To show what they did there, their holes are fixable. We’re steadily on the incline, and it is a slow incline, but we’ve yet to be healthy since our second scrimmage of the season. We’ve got a major virus going through our team.”

Josh Brown, who is battling the virus himself, scored an insurance goal unassisted with a minute left, and the Vikes skated on, retaining second place in the CAL.

“This was a gut check in there,” Wile said of his locker room, which reverberated with cough after cough after the game. “Brown has a temperature and was (sick) on the bench. He comes back for just a solid game. We had six guys in the stands. We went with nine forwards and four defense. I’m not saying that we’re a state championship team right now, but that’s a gut check. That’s a chapter.”

Masco coach Andrew Jackson was unavailable for comment.
