Siuslaw Soccer

Siuslaw Viking soccer was on the field against Junction City last night the Viking JV team defeated the tigers 5-3.  Coach Londi Tomaro said it was a well played game for the Vikings.  However the Varsity team did not have the same results.  The Vikings managed to score first on a back and forth game, but Junction city pulled ahead 2-1 by halftime.  Midway through the second half the Tigers score another goal for a 3-1 win.


This evening Viking Volleyball will be at Elmira for a match with the JV beginning at 5pm and the varsity taking the court at 6:30.  Soccer is back on the field tomorrow at Elmira at 5:30.
