The Lady Vikings dominated its rival Wrangell Wolves last weekend during two away games.

The girls squad set the pace during the first quarter with a lead of 16-7 but got into foul trouble early on.

"At one point I had all five starters on the bench in the second quarter," Head Coach Dino Brock said. "For the large part of the second quarter most of the starters didn't even play."

But the Lady Vikings bench didn't let the momentum linger and kept the lead at 21-17 at the half.

Brock said his team continued to get into foul trouble and kept Wrangell players at the free throw line.

"They called the game really tight so we spent a lot of the time on the bench," Brock said.

The Lady Vikings won 42-28.

Kylie Wallace and Ruby Brock both scored eight points. Grace Weller scored seven points and Sierra Streuli put six points on the board.

Saturday night saw the same energy from the Lady Vikings. The squad led 20-4 at the end of the first quarter but, also similar to Friday's game, got itself into foul trouble.

It wasn't enough for the Lady Wolves to gain an edge though and the Lady Vikings led 26-11 at the half.

"We came out in the second half playing really well and kept Wrangell off the line," Brock said.

Wallace scored 24 points. Brock and Emma Chase scored six points each and Weller scored three points.

"Overall it was a very good weekend," Brock said. "I thought the kids played really well. We did really well defensively."

The Junior Varsity team also performed well beating Wrangell 42-11 Friday night and 38-17 Saturday night.
