Vikings tame Tigers, 57-45; hold off Horsemen, 76-66

Print Article

At Charlo last week, the host Vikings added another set of conference victories to their restart of a new win streak after their previously undefeated season was interrupted.

Last Thursday, the Vikings outscored the visiting Tigers of St. Regis through the first three periods to build up an 18-point buffer, then withstood a small run by the visitors that only carved into the margin by a half dozen.

Landers Smith led all scorers with a double-double that included a baker’s dozen boards, while cousins Connor Koenig and Nate Delaney combined for more than two dozen.

The following evening, on Friday, the Vikings ended up trailing the visiting Plains Horsemen by a mere handful after the first frame, but put up a mega second quarter that flipped the script by the mid-teens. Thereafter, Plains managed to slightly outscore their host during both frames of the second half, but Charlo was able to counter enough of their surge stampede to retain the reins of the outcome.

Smith chipped in his second double-double of the week, while cousins Koenig and Delaney collaborated on more that thirty.

The Vikings travel to face Two Eagle River on Friday, Jan. 25, then host Noxon on Saturday, Jan. 26.
