Lady Vikes fall for 2nd time

Barr-Reeve girls basketball coach Mark Holt has stressed to his team the entire season how difficult the second half of his team’s schedule can be. With a Monday make-up contest at Vincennes Rivet on the horizon, the Vikings had to first worry about North Knox (13-4) on Thursday night in Bicknell.

Although many in Viking Nation may have been looking forward to the Monday clash, the Warriors showed why they have spent most of the season on the fringes of the 2A rankings. North Knox used multiple defenses and forced the Viking out of any offensive rhythm in a 48-29 victory.

North Knox capitalized on six Viking turnovers in the first quarter, and quickly opened a lead at 8-2. The Warriors continued turning defense into offense and stretched their lead to as much as 14 at 18-4 midway through the second quarter.

The Vikings looked to mount a quick run, and rattled off a 7-0 run to cut the deficit to 18-11. North Knox countered with the past basket basket of the half to front 20-11 at the break.

Any thought of the Vikings gaining momentum in the second half was quickly extinguished by the Warriors Maria Gugliotta. Gugliotta tossed in six quick points, and North Knox quickly opened a 17-point margin at 28-11.

The Warriors also used two buckets in the quarter from Lauren Charlton to lead 32-17 at the end of three.

The Lady Warriors were content to make multiple trips to the charity stripe in the fourth quarter, and held off each Viking charge on the way to the 17-point victory. The loss drops the Viking mark on the season to 15-2.

Jenna Knepp led the Vikings with 10 points. Olivia Carroll added nine and Hannah Bullock finished with seven.

Monday’s contest at Rivet gets underway at 6 p.m. and the Vikings will close their regular season on Tuesday at Kavanaugh Kourt against Springs Valley.
