On defense, we struggled to find an answer to the Vikings. Good plays were found with Rylin Williams and Gustavo Barcenas running the show. Stand out players were Rylin Williams, Gustavo Barcenas, Owen Green, and Christian Washington

Matthew Grimm and Christopher Velasquez stepped up on defense by making the Vikings struggle in the first half of the game. Stand out players were Matthew Grimm, Carson Hinojosa, Tyler Woods, and Christopher Velasquez.
