They say the Vikings were fierce raiders and explorers from the north, who sailed and conquered unknown territory. The Vikings JV basketball team from the south (Lakewood) may not be related? They sailed into Portland Tuesday night, where the Lady Raiders were anxiously waiting and looking to steal a win FROM THEM.
The Raiders came out switching defenses and creating turnovers, but misfiring in the first quarter. However, things settled down and the shots fell down. Great balanced scoring led by Hannah Schrauben dropping 14pts, Sophie Novara again with 9pts, Jada Spitzley had 8pts, and Alayna Goodman (back off her sick bed) notched 12pts. Grace Sines controlled the paint, while Brooke Seal raided the Viking ship stealing everything she could get her hands on.
As the team (and individuals) continue to improve, the Raiders have quietly won their 3rd straight and 4 out of the last 6. They will need to re-group quickly, because they travel to Fowlerville to take on the Gladiators Thursday night.
