Beat Hunter, win the Region 2 title.
And thanks to goals from both Jeromy and Zach Heward, the Vikings were able to take down the Wolverines 3-0 to claim the Region 2 title and a top seed entering the state 5A soccer tournament.
After the first half ended in a scoreless tie, Jeromy Heward was the first to put the Vikings on the board when his shot went past a diving Hunter goal keeper in the 55th minute for the 1-0 Viewmont lead. Jeromy Heward’s goal was his 16th of the season, ranking him just outside of the top 10 among goal scorers for the year.
Fifteen minutes later, Austin Blotter increased the Vikings’ lead to two goals after taking a shot off an awarded free kick opportunity. The goal was Blotter’s third of the season.
The Vikings remained aggressive for the rest of the match, even in the closing minutes. Already up two goals and with Hunter’s back- up goal keeper in play, Zach Heward punched in his third goal of the season to close out the scoring for the afternoon. At the net, Tanner Henrie picked up his ninth shutout of the season.
The Vikings finished the regular season with an 11-2-2 overall record (8-1-1 in Region 2). They will likely face off against the Riverton Silverwolves, the No. 4 seed from Region 4, in the opening round of the 5A state playoffs.
That game is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at Viewmont High School.
