CC Vikings Sports Scores
The Cook County Vikings came off a weekend of road games at AlBrook and Carlton with wins that saw the Vikes move their record to 8-1. The Silver Bay Mariners came to town with a very young and inexperienced team but a with a team that battled hard.
The Vikings started out and played the entire game in a ½ court defense and it took the girls a little longer than normal to get their engines going. The Mariners scored 8 quick points and about halfway through the 1st it was a 16-8 ballgame. The Vikings really got revved up, though, and behind Ashley Deschampe and Ailee Larson pushing the tempo, the Vikings spurted out to a 52-12 halftime score. Deschampe had 15 in the frame while Larson added 14 and Brea Boomer chipped in 13.
The 2nd half saw a good mix of starters and young bench players seeing action in a soft zone, with some young players stepping into the mix by making some plays. Molly Zafft took charge when she was out there and was aggressive in attacking the basket. Breana Peterson did a great job of handling the ball and had 5 assists, while Kaitlynn Linnell played tough inside to score 12 points. In general, the young girls played with good intensity. The 91-20 win pushes the Vikings record to 9-1 with a road game at Mesabi East on Thursday.

Congratulations M1s on a Great Hockey Jamboree Weekend!
Congratulations to Cook County's M1 Hockey Team on a great Jamboree weekend! The M1 team played in the Mite 1 Superstar Silver Bay Jamboree this weekend and played with awesome spirit in all four games. Game one was against Esko Blue and M1s Kevin Viren, Patrick Pierre and Koke Anderson all put the puck in the net several times. John Pierre did a great job assisting in the 3rd period passing to Ryan Christiansen and the puck was shot to the net again. Way to go M1s!
Game 2 on Saturday was played against Esko White. The M1s showed great stamina and played hard the whole game. Several goals were made by the M1s with Kevin Viren scoring multiple times. Ryan Christiansen and Patrick Pierre both had great assists helping to get the puck to the net. Andrew Hallberg hustled hard after the puck and was able to get his first goal of the weekend. Andrew also did a great job defending the net. Tanner Berglund showed great teamwork by shooting some awesome passes and put his first goal of the Jamboree weekend into the net during this game as well.
The M1s played their toughest game of the weekend on Sunday against the Hermantown Badgers. This was a very aggressive game and the young M1s showed they could keep up their spirit and fought hard for the puck the whole game. Several times they were able to break away from the opponent's net to score several goals of their own. Bridget Cooley skated hard to get to the puck and had some great passes!
Game 4 on Sunday was against Silver Bay. The M1s continued to be team players hustling hard on the ice to score multiple times against their opponents. Congratulations on a great Jamboree weekend!
The M1s and M2s will be together this weekend on January 15-16 at the Portman Jamboree in Duluth.

The Moose Lake/Willow River Rebels came into Tuesday night’s game with a solid 6-3 record and an impressive standing in Section 7AA. The Vikings came in with off of Christmas vacation with a 5-1 record, all games being played at home.

Senior Ailee Larson led the charge, scoring 16 points in the 1st half, 8 of them from the free throw line. Boomer chipped in 11 1st half points, while the Vikings scored 30 fast break points in the half. The Vikings took a 52-18 lead into the break.
The Rebels jumped out quickly in the 2nd half with the Viking press pulled back and Shelby Halverson drained three quick shots to put 7 points on the board for the Rebels. The Vikings responded, though, with a nice 18-0 run to basically close out the game.

The Peewees kicked off the New Year on Saturday with a very physical game in Hermantown and came home with a victory, a few bruises and final score of 4 - 1.
Then Sunday the Peewees hosted the Duluth East Black team. We quickly took the lead in the first period but Duluth East came out strong in the 2nd and we were behind 2 - 5 going into the 3rd. The home team then rallied early in the 3rd period and before we knew it the score was 5 - 6. In the last seconds of the game JJ Ketola put one through the pipes and the peewees were headed for overtime! There were plenty of shots on goal in the 8 minute overtime period but the East goalie stayed strong and the game then ended in a 6 - 6 tie! This group is having a really great season with a current record of 8 - 2- 1 and they head to a tournament this next weekend in Hibbing to take on teams from all over the state. Keep up the good work boys!
The Squirts looked awesome on Sunday when they hosted the Hermantown Blue team. It was a very exciting game with lots of skating, passing, shooting and scoring! These teams were a good match and this game ended in a 3 - 3 tie. Nice work Squirts and skate hard at your next game on Saturday in Cloquet.
