The Decorah boys soccer team (5-5-2) split two games this weekend.
Thursday the Vikings defeated West Delaware 2-0 at home. Garrett Nordheim got the Vikes on the board first off an assist from Isaac Marquardt in the first half. Freshman Keshawn McCain scored a goal in the first as well.
“Keshawn’s goal was his first in a Decorah uniform and will surely be the first of many,” said Coach David Keller.
Saturday the Vikings hosted Dubuque Hempstead, falling 5-0.
“Against Dubuque Hempstead, the Vikings faced arguably one of the more talented teams in the state. A couple of mistakes caused the boys to go down early in the game, making it really hard to recover. In the end, we learned some tough but very important lessons in this game that we will take into Waverly and the postseason,” said Keller.

The Vikings were at Waverly-Shell Rock Monday. They are then off until the playoffs. After a bye in the first round, they host the winner of Dubuque Wahlert and West Delaware Thursday, May 29, at 5 p.m. at home.
