The NFV boys’ soccer team closed out its initial season as a varsity sport at home against Decorah on Thursday at Pattison Field in Fayette.

The 13-5 Vikings came out strong, gaining a 2-0 lead midway through the second half.

Then, Kole Johnson scored with 20 minutes left in the game on an assist from Taylor Luzum.

That seemed to ignite the TigerHawks as they came close a number of times to tying the game, but came up just short.
