On Tuesday evening the (1-0) Oslo Vikings played their second game of the regular season vs the (0-2)Vålerenga Trolls.
This game was an Away game on the schedule for the Vikings, but was held at Frogner stadium due to the Trolls playing their home games there this season.
It was a wet rainy night from start to finnish. The weather conditions proved to be a factor on the scoring early with a 0-0 score at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter the Vikings were the first club to get on the scoreboard. A long pass down the sideline from Quarterback #10 Robert Mehmet to WR/FS #1 Bror Jahre set up the Vikings in great scoring position. The drive was later capped off by a 10 yard screen pass to RB #7 Vegard Tysse.
With the Vikings up 7-0 it was the Vikings D`s turn to get in on the action. Defensive coordinator Nicolay Knutsen dialed up some pressure off the edge and SS #2 Nicholas Isaksen got a forced fumble sack which was recovered by DE #72 Petter Frausing on the Trolls 1 yard line. On the very next play, Vikings running back # 22 Jesper Jorgensen punched into the endzone from 1 yard out making the score 14-0. That was the score going into halftime.
In the second half the Vikings continued to put up points. WR/CB # 5 Eric Ford was the next Viking to reach the endzone on a 45 yard td pass from QB Robert Mehemet.The Vikings D continued to play a wonderful shutout performance giving the Vikings Offense plenty of chances to put the opposing team away. The next scoring play was a 35 yard field goal from Kicker #7 Vegard Tysse making the score 24-0 for the away team. The final scoring play of the match was a receiving touchdown from WR #84 Andreas Berglihn on a pretty 10 yard slant pattern. That made the final score 31-0 for the Vikings.
A notable performance on the Vikings D was CB #21 Eivind Rolles. He was on corner duty vs the Trolls top WR all day long. He made an amazing diving interception and locked down their top WR the entire game.The other Vikings interception on the day was from Safety # 43 Sergio Vizzuett with a nice toe tapping sideline catch.
With the Win the Oslo Vikings move to (2-0) on the regular season leading into their match with the (1-0) Eidsvoll 1814`s . That match will be Saturday May 27th at 15:00 @Frogner stadium.
