Vikings win Buggy Bowl

(Continued)

MONTGOMERY —

In the second half, North Daviess came out with a fight it didn't show in the first half. Both teams traded baskets for most of the third quarter, but the Cougars weren't able to gain any ground as the Vikings got seven points apiece from Wagler and senior Micah Bullock in the quarter. Senior guard Alex Wittmer scored 10 points in the quarter for the Cougars, but Barr-Reeve held a commanding 50-29 lead entering the fourth.

"We as a team decided that in the second half we needed to learn something and we had to keep playing hard," Dalrymple said.

North Daviess outscored Barr-Reeve 24-18 over the final eight minutes as seniors as Byrer and Wittmer combined to score 20 points in the fourth quarter, including three 3-pointers from Byrer. The Vikings struggled to hit their free throws in the final minutes and all night as they made 14-of-24 from the charity stripe, but were able to close out the 15-point victory.

"We were trying to stay in front and make them hit some shots and they hit some long 3-pointers, " Scott said. "We didn't close out quick enough on some of those, but all in all we wanted to keep them from driving in the lane and make them shoot from outside as much as we could."

Wagler's 24 points led all scorers, Logan James had 14 points, Bullock added 13, Chris Wittmer had 12, Jon McMullen had three and Duncan Roy finished with two points for the Vikings. Wittmer led North Daviess with 20 points, Byrer had 16, Zach Moore added eight, Brady Helms scored six and Dusten Cook had three points.

A night after Barr-Reeve let Wood Memorial hang around for the first three quarters, Scott was happy to see the success the Vikings had when they played with intensity for 32 minutes.

"I think we're showing signs of coming together," Scott said. "The kids understand that we have to have that kind of effort every night and not let what happened Friday night get by. We can't just go through the motions and still end up in big games, we have to really bring the intensity."

The Vikings won the junior varsity game 48-18.
