Head Coach Dino Brock said his team controlled the pace of the game from the get go.

The Lady Vikings lead by 20 points during several different points of the game.

Grace Weller led the boards with 13 points. Emma Chase scored nine and Ruby Brock scored eight points.

"Saturday it was more of the same," Coach Brock said. "We started out with really high levels of defensive intensity."

The Lady Vikings scored 20 points in the first quarter.

Kylie Wallace was the high scorer Saturday, putting 12 points on the board. Grace Weller scored ten points and Kyla Willis dropped eight points.

"Everybody contributed," Brock said. "It was a good weekend. We showed the way we are capable of playing."

Brock said overall the season has been going very well and the athletes are showing a lot of enthusiasm.

"They practice hard and they play hard," Brock said."It's been a good start to the season."

The Lady Vikings face Mt. Edgecumbe at home next weekend.
