Rockport 3,

Hamilton-Wenham 2

The Vikings exploded for three second half goals, the final one from Nick Costa with eight minutes to go to give them a win in their season opener.

The Generals took a 1-0 lead at the break but Rockport tied it up on an early second half goal from Andrew Guelli on an assist from Dillon VanDerPool. Guelli then assisted on Costa’s first goal of the night to give the Vikings a 2-1 lead, only for Hamilton-Wenham to come back and tie the score a short time later. Ivo Allen assisted on Costa’s game winner. Austin Matus, Tom Micalizzi and Mike Nocela played well on defense as did keeper Camden Wheeler, whose best stop came in the first half to keep it a one-goal game.

The Vikings are back in action on Friday at Amesbury (3:45 p.m.).
