Vikings win provincial soccer crown

Jamil Tahhan scored the game-winner on a penalty kick and Daniel Moss posted the clean sheet as the Vincent Massey Vikings became the first team from Brandon to win a provincial high school urban soccer championship on Saturday.

Chipper Osiname added the other marker for Massey, which netted a pair of second-half goals, as it beat the second-seeded West Kildonan Wolverines 2-0 in the boys’ final in Winnipeg.

“It’s so surreal,” said Tahhan, a 5-foot-8 midfielder who was named a tournament all-star. “No other Brandon team has ever won this title and it’s my Grade 12 year. It feels amazing.”

The Vikings had a solid tournament weekend, although the Dakota Lancers put a scare in them in the quarter-finals. Massey needed a shootout to win 2-1 and advance to the semifinals, where they beat the Elmwood Giants 4-1.

Massey’s Andriy Kozoriz was the tournament MVP, while Duncan Campbell and Alex Alvarado were named all-stars.

Tahhan thought the Vikings played a solid team game and that the players believed they could win the championship all weekend. He also had a lot of faith in his abilities when it came time for him to take that penalty kick that stood up as the championship-winning goal.

“I just knew,” he said. “I had a feeling that the moment was going to come and I wasn’t going to miss.”
