Girls Basketball with another victory and now a 9 - 1 record!
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.
