Rockport 3 Ipswich 2

The Vikings improve to 2-0-4 on the year after battling back from a two-goal deficit in the first 10 minutes of the game.

“It was the first time all year that we’ve been behind and we were behind by two right off the bat,” head coach Dave Curley said. “But we settled down in the first half and battled back in the second half. Everyone played great.”

David Warde cut the Ipswich lead to 2-1 early in the first half on a header and goal keeper Richie Powers tied the score 10 minutes later on a penalty kick. Warde delivered the game winner with 18 minutes to go in the match on another header and the Vikings held off the CAL Baker leading Tigers the rest of the way.
