Back to back shutouts for NB

North Branch 2, Cambridge-Isanti 0
Viking head coach Jake Borash decided to move senior defender Isaac Johnson up to the front line for the home game against the Cambridge-Isanti Bluejackets last Thursday, September 5.  And it paid off.  Johnson scored both goals as the Vikings shut out the Bluejackets 2-0.

It was a very physical game with a number of yellow cards on both teams.  Johnson scored once in the first half to put the Vikings up 1-0.  In the second half, junior Grant Kennedy took a shot from inside the Cambridge box that went off the back of a Bluejacket defender and bounced off the side of Johnson’s foot and into the net.  Borash said “That was a lucky goal.  When Grant came off the field, he said ‘that was one of the weirdest goals ever.  It shouldn’t have counted.’  I told him ‘Hey, we’ve had weird stuff like that happen against us over the years, so it’s nice to get one back.’”
 

North Branch 1, Zimmerman 0
Junior Harry Toussaint scored the only goal of the game after halftime and sophomore goalkeeper made two big saves in the last minute of the game to finish off the Vikings’ 1-0 win over the Zimmerman Thunder last Saturday, September 7 at North Branch High School.

On the goal-scoring play, there was a scrum in the Thunder penalty area.  The ball popped out to Toussaint and he knocked it into the back of the net to put the Vikings up 1-0.  Wyatt Peek picked up the assist.  And with less than a minute to go in the game, a Viking defensive mistake led to a breakaway for one of the speedy Zimmerman forwards.
