NB boys shut out Zimmerman

North Branch 2, Zimmerman 0
Viking head coach Jake Borash had an interesting day last Saturday in addition to the Vikings shutting out the Zimmerman Thunder 2-0 in front of the home crowd at North Branch High School. The opposing coach was Devin Chuba, who was Borash’s college teammate at the University of Minnesota Morris. And due to the referee shortage in high school soccer, the JV game that followed the varsity game didn’t have any referees.  So Borash, who has 14 years of refereeing experience, referee the JV game – with the blessing of Chuba.

But back to the varsity game.  The first half was scoreless.  The Vikings’ first goal came when Wyatt Peak had a good run deep into the Thunder zone and cut in at the end line.  He faked a pass back and, instead, sent a crossing pass across the box.  Brady Vernon picked up the ball as he ran from the back post to the front post, turned towards the net and chipped the ball up and over the keeper and into the net to put the Vikings up 1-0.  “That was a great play by both players,” said Borash.  “And it’s the first time I have ever seen Brady try that kind of shot.”

Later in the half, the Vikings added an insurance goal on a corner kick.  Drew Detzler sent the corner kick to Eric Elizarraga-Flor at top of the box.  The Vikings cleared space for Flor to shoot.  His shot hit the crossbar, bounced straight down on the goal line and back up, hitting the net just inside the crossbar.  Borash said “Everyone performed their role on that play.  That was the best set piece goal I have seen in my career as a high school coach.”

Cloquet-Esko-Carlton 6, North Branch 0
The Cloquet-Esko-Carlton Lumberjacks scored three times in each half, crushing the Vikings 6-0 this past Monday, October 4 at Cloquet High School.  Viking head coach Jake Borash said “Cloquet came to play, and we did not.  It was not a strong performance for us at either end and we came out on the back end of things.”

Soccer Stuff
The Vikings have just two regular season games left.  Tonight, they host Lakes International Language Academy at 5 p.m. at North Branch High School.  And on Saturday, they will end the season with a home game against the Duluth Marshall Hilltoppers at 1 p.m.
