Viking girls drop two to Ketchikan over the weekend

The Petersburg Lady Vikings traveled to Ketchikan and came home two games down for the season.

“The first night started out really well,” Head Coach Dino Brock said. “We did a nice job defensively and offensively we were moving the ball a lot.”

The girls were down 10 to eight at the end of the first quarter and 24 to 22 at half-time.

“We came out in the third quarter and didn't start as strong,” Brock stated. “That became the whole separation of the game.”

At the end of the third quarter the Lady Vikings were down 38 to 25 and ended up with a 12 point loss for a score of 47 to 35.

“We did a nice job but there were just too many turnovers and that was for both teams,” Brock said. “Both teams pressed each other and went at each other and it was a very fast paced game.”

Leading the Petersburg girls in scoring was Grace Weller with 12 points followed by Ruby Brock with nine and Kyla Willis and Kylie Wallace bringing in seven points each.

“I was really happy overall,” Brock stated. “I really think we played well.”

Saturday saw the girls were a bit slower than the night before.

“We were down in points early and it kind of stayed that way,” Brock said. “We had too many turnovers again.”

The Lady Vikings were down eight points at the end of the first quarter and down 10 by half-time.

By the end of the fourth quarter it was a 14 point game and the girls ended up losing 61 to 38.

Brock was the leading scorer for Saturday's game with 13 points, followed closely by Wallace with 12. Adanna Kvernvik brought in five points, Willis had four and Fran Abbott and Weller brought in two points each.

“I thought we played really well again, we played with a lot of energy and continued to show improvement in a lot of areas,” Brock said. “There are areas that we still need work also, such as rebounding.”

The Lady Vikings will host Sitka at home this weekend.

“We play Sitka here this weekend,” Brock stated. “They will do a lot of the same things that Ketchikan does and they run a lot of the same plays

and that can be an advantage

for us.”
