With the regular season over, it was playoff football time at Frogner Stadium! The 6-0 Oslo Vikings took their undefeated regular  season record vs the 1-5 Vålerenga Trolls. Taking the two teams records into consideration, the game did not play out as expected. The final score was a 39-32 score for the home team Oslo Vikings.

The Vikings were up 24-7 going into the start of the 4th quarter. That is when the game started to get really exciting. The Trolls mounted an amazing 4th quarter comeback that at one point had them in the lead 25-24 with 4 minutes remaining in the match. The Vikings quickly replied with a 3 play drive going 65 yards and it was capped off by a 2 point conversion run to take the lead 32-25.

 

With the following possession, the Vikings D Line brought some much needed pressure on the opposing QB and forced a fumble which was recovered for the final Vikings touchdown. Making the score 39-25.
