Vikings run past Cardinals on Senior Night

MONTGOMERY — Prior to Friday night’s game against Bloomfield, Barr-Reeve celebrated one of its largest senior classes in 40 years. Once the festivities ended, the Vikings finished off the regular season the way they started it — with a victory.

Class A No. 1 Barr-Reeve (20-1) defeated Bloomfield 66-33 behind a dominant second half that saw them outscore the Cardinals 37-10 on Senior Night at Kavanaugh Kourt. The Vikings had three players in double figures.

Barr-Reeve led by as many as 12 in the first half, but the Cardinals made a run to end the second quarter to cut the lead to six and were within striking distance. That all changed after halftime. After letting Bloomfield back in the game with a late second quarter run, the Vikings made a statement in the third quarter.

“It was good for us to get a first half like that,” said Barr-Reeve coach. “It seemed like they were hitting every shot and I didn’t think we played all that bad in the first half. I thought we had some really nice interior passing, it was just good to get in a battle and respond the way we did.”

Barr-Reeve won the third quarter by a 22-8 score to take a 52-31 lead heading to the fourth. Addison Wagler led the Vikings with eight points in the quarter and Chris Wittmer had five, but Micah Bullock had the final word in a dominant Bar-Reeve quarter. In the final 10 seconds of the third, Bullock hit a 3-pointer from the right wing and stole the Bloomfield inbound pass with enough time to knock down another trey before time expired.

“I know Chris Wittmer hasn’t done that a lot this year, but he’s one of our players who stay after practice to work on his shooting,” Hughes said. “It was just fun to watch him shoot the ball tonight and then the end of the third quarter with Micah’s couple plays, it was just a fun evening. Great crowd here tonight and I’m just happy for our players.”
