Vikings Advance to District Finals
By Alexis Mercer
Vikings 46 Spartans 33
In the first semi-final District game of the evening, the Sparta Varsity Basketball girls team played against the Vikings of Tri-County.
The first half proved to be a battle of the defenses, and pretty evenly matched. The teams went into the locker rooms with the Vikings up 19-16.
But as they came out to play in the second half...
...the offense took over for Tri-County in particular. The Vikings were aggressive on the boards and from behind the arch, and were up 32-24 at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Sparta fought hard for possession and to score, but didn’t have an answer for their opponents. Vikings Ashley Bowen and Jessica Thompson took control of the floor.
The final score ended with the Vikings victorious over the Sparta Spartans 46-33.
Tri-County will play against the Grant Tigers on Friday, March 3, at 7:00 PM on their home floor.
