Caston’s defense scheme stymied the Vikings. The Comets slowed the game down at times and ran when the opportunity presented itself. The girls executed the game plan and had a great effort all around for the “W”.
The Comets were down 5-2 and end the 1st quarter with a 4-0 run and never trailed again. Their biggest lead was 10, but the Vikings never got it within 3. North White had the ball out of bounds with 4 seconds. Caston went to a man face guarding defense and the Vikings tried a cross court pass that Mollenkopf tipped into the back court and time expired without the Vikings getting a shot. Several players had some important minutes. Smith had 10 rebounds, Holt had 11 assists and 10 points, and Clingler had 24 points.
Scoring: Clingler 24, Holt 10, Smith 4, Kay 3, Oliver 1
