Vikings came second at the Wellington Beach Handball Tournament

Posted by Admin on January 26, 2011 at 2:49 PM

The Vikings lost in a dramatic final against the Spartanz Gold team with 1:2 in the Wellington Beach Handball Championships.
The first period was won in a close match by the Spartanz. The Second period was then dominated by the Vikings and ufortunately for the Vikings the shootout was a Hitchcock like highlight with the luck on the Spatanz side.


In the First round the Vikings beat the Spartanz Black team and the "Knights of Lawrence Team" each with 2:0.

The semifinal was then a close match versus the French Toast Mafia (Waikato Handball Club) but the Vikings stayed ahead and won 2:0.

Test game vs the Hutt Hawks

Posted by Admin on November 7, 2010 at 7:50 AM

At Sunday night the reigning Wellington League Champion was challenged by the Hutt Hawks in a test game.
The main goals of the Vikings were to improve the team play and to try things which we had practised in training sessions over the last few months.

The first half started of terrible as the Vikings player seemed to be somewhere else with their minds. The young Hutt Hawks team played really well in this phase and used the weakness of the Vikings towards a 9:17 half time lead.
During tghe Halftime break the coach found clear words that he hoped will wake up his team and it did. The second half showed then the true Vikinsg sprrit as the lead got cut back goal by goal (12:17, 15:17) until the equalizer. The Vikings now on top of their game, controlled now the action and took the lead to carry towards a 26:22 victory.

Vikings summary:
From a coaching point of view I was disappointed as we couldn't force ourselfs to try out new things and to improve the game with each other in the way I hoped for. Surely the comeback in the second half was remarkeable (17:5) but as a team we need to understand that test games are there to develop individuals and to develop the team game which I didnt see today.
From a team spirit point of view I am really pleased we had so much participation today and were able to get our sh** together to turn around the game. Well Done boys.
On a side not there was a really good first game of John who just started with playing Handball and recently joined the Vikings and two guest players from Germany who showed some good Handball skills which were hopefully a good example for some players who played today not on the same level as they normally played.

GO VIKINGS!

VIKINGS are Wellington Champs

Posted by Admin on October 26, 2010 at 6:08 AM

After a great comeback in the secon half from 6 behind, the Vikinsg won 30:29 against the Spartanz.

An incredible team effort and huge support on the ranks helped the Vikings to recover from a bad first half in which the Spartanz seemed to dominate the Vikings (14:20).
In the halftime break the Vikings put their heads together and evoked the team spirit they are known for and helped them to make the finals.
Goal by Goal, minute by minute the Vikings came closer and the crowd went nuts to support the Vikings rated as underdog before the game.
In the final minutes of the game the team sealed the Championship with cleverness and teamspirit!

GO VIKINGS :-)
