With a Friday afternoon home match against Big 8 Conference 2nd place Diablo Valley College, the Falcons had hoped to avenge an early-season loss to the Vikings and also make up some ground in the Big 8 standings.  But both teams were intent on shutting down their opponent and the intensity was evident throughout the physical match that ended in a scoreless tie.  FLC goalkeeper Aubrey Hall earned her fifth shutout of the season with six saves, but the Viking defense was just as impenetrable.  With just five matches remaining in the regular season, the Falcons ( 5-3-3, 10-3-3 overall) remain in fourth place in the Big 8, just one point behind third-place Delta – whom they'll face on Friday in Stockton – and four behind second-place DVC.
