Vikings take down Thunder in season opener

EDMONTON AB - In the first game of the regular season the Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) Thunder, took on the visiting University of Alberta - Agustana (UAA) Vikings.

The Thunder and Vikings will meet again tomorrow night and the Thunder look to even the score and come out of the series tied at 1.
