and chances on the Falcons frame. The Falcons would only register a single shot on goal in the first
frame. As it has so far in the young season the Falcon defense would withstand the pressure and the

goal of the season. The remainder of the game would see the Vikings again gain the advantage in
possession outshooting the Falcons 9-3 including hitting the woodwork immediately following the
Falcons goal and holding an advantage in corners 4-0. The game would turn physical with 15 fouls
whistled and several yellow cards being issued. In the end the Falcons would record their first win of the
