Due to the weather this was the first time Vikings had seen any match action for two months. On a boggy pitch in the swirling winds Hook seized he early initiative and led with a lobbed goal after four minutes. Vikings with the wind behind them responded strongly and were level when Fareed Hakeem-Habeeb struck home with a low shot from the edge of the penalty area. Vikings came close several times with long range efforts from Fareed and Mason Clark, before two individual goals in quick succession meant Hook ended the first half with a two goal advantage. Aaron Matthews reduced the arrears from the penalty spot midway through the second half and despite coming close several times, Vikings were hit with a sucker punch with the final kick of the game when a wind assisted corner flew straight Into their net to complete the mornings scoring.
