No. 1 Vikes dismantle WC at Kavanaugh Kourt

MONTGOMERY — Some times it takes a little time for a big ship to get under way. However, once it builds up steam, it becomes very difficult to stop.

On Saturday night at Kavanaugh Kourt, after a slow first quarter, No. 1 Barr-Reeve was unstoppable in its 67-18 victory over Blue Chip foe Washington Catholic.

The Vikings limited WC to just 11 points in the final three quarters and used a 26-5 turnover advantage to go on a 56-11 run to finish out the game. However, after the homecoming celebration ended, and both teams took the floor, it was the Cardinals who came out more ready to play.

During the first four minutes of action, B-R was just 1-of-9 from the floor, while WC took an early 5-4 lead. However, after Addison Wagler made a pair of layups and Micah Bullock made an old-fashioned 3-pointer, Barr-Reeve took an 11-7 lead at the end of the first that they would not give up for the rest of the night.

“It wasn’t a great start. We came out a little uninterested and had troubled hitting shots,” said BR coach Bryan Hughes. “However, we did a nice job on the defensive end, only allowing 11 points the rest of the way.”

The Vikings’s shooting woes were forgotten in the second quarter, as they made 9-of-11 from the floor, including treys from Bullock and Seth Swartzentruber. WC’s Ethan Wichman did make a 3-pointer that cut the lead to 15-10, but their only other scoring came from Zach Taylor with a bucket late in the half to make it 36-12.

“We played a heck of a basketball team team. They are No. 1 for a reason,” said WC coach John Howell. “We played a good first quarter, but they turned up the heat and we had trouble handling that. It really took us out of our comfort zone.”
