Northeast Vikings’ boys soccer mounted a valiant effort against Lincoln College Prep Oct. 25 during the Interscholastic League Championship game, but fell short, losing 5-4.

Lincoln Prep Coach Pat O’Connor said his boys played their best game of the year during the championship game.

“They passed the ball better than they have so far this year,” he said. “I was happy for the kids. They worked hard.”

Two key players who helped clinch the Interscholastic League victory were T-bow Ngome, who scored three goals, and Simon Davies, who scored two, O’Connor said.

Both Lincoln Prep and Northeast went on to district play.
