Rockport 2 Newburyport 1

The Vikings (7-2-1) picked up a huge win on the road as Newburyport is a tough place to leave with a win.

Senior captain Shaun Aspesi was the man of the match scoring both Vikings goals in the first half giving him 11 on the season, the first coming on a dead ball strike from 25 yards out, the second coming after some nifty give-and-go passing between he and fellow captain Jonathan Ferrante.

The Clippers pressed in the second half scoring with 10 minutes to play but the Rockport defense held strong for the win. Nick Sanfilippo, Mike Carbone and Nick Laverde led the defense while Sam Roell, Gideon Roell, Matthew Tibert and Andrew Waynrynen powered the midfield.
