Vikings defeat Cardinals, 73-19

The Barr-Reeve girls basketball team entered play Thursday night winners of eight in a row and looked to extend that streak to nine with a visit to the Bird Cage.

The Class A No. 3 Vikings (11-1) dominated the Cardinals (1-10) in a 73-19 victory Thursday night behind a balanced scoring attack that saw five Barr-Reeve players score at least nine points.

The Vikings forced nine Washington Catholic turnovers to take the Cardinals’ home crowd out of the game immediately. Barr-Reeve got into its transition offense right away and led 25-0 after one quarter. Hannah Bullock scored nine, while Tiara Kenney added seven points in the first eight minutes.

In the second quarter, Washington Catholic finally scored its first basket of the night courtesy of senior Elizabeth Perkins, but the Cardinals still trailed 27-2.

Mary Anne Wichman added a 3-pointer in the quarter, but the Vikings took a 46-5 lead into halftime. Barr-Reeve’s Olivia Carroll scored nine points in the quarter as she was repeatedly left open on the perimeter.

Carroll led all scorers with 13 points in the first half.

“We have been working on several things in practice — defensive rebounding, trying to limit our own turnovers, trying to get out in transition more,” Holt said.

“Before we took the floor in the first half we put some goals up on the board for the first quarter. We wanted to give up two or fewer offensive rebounds, we wanted to hold them to six or less points and try to get 14 or more points. We try to break the game into eight minute segments and try to do certain things in each quarter. I thought we did a pretty good job of meeting those goals that we set.”

In the second half, the Vikings got some of their younger reserves into the game for some varsity action. Instead of a mass substitution, coach Mark Holt said he chose to put two starters on the floor with the younger girls to get some chemistry going between all the players on the floor. In the second half, the Cardinals were outscored 27-14, but coach Michael Hopkins felt his team improved its play in the final 16 minutes of regulation.
