Rock River, Hulett pick up wins over Lady Vikings

Posted: Tuesday, Feb 7th, 2017

Viking sophomore Krista Malcom (11) drives against the Hulett defense in Saturdayís game in the Viking gym. Quick on her feet, she had seven steals against the Lady Red Devils.

GUERNSEY--But for one very bad third quarter, the Lady Vikings stayed with the Rock River Lady Longhorns Friday evening but the damage was too much to overcome. The Longhorns had a five point lead at half, 21-16 but Guernsey-Sunrise couldnít find the bucket in the third quarter, putting in just three points to Rock Riverís 20 and the Longhorns went home with a 50-31 win.

On Saturday, the Lady Vikes again stayed right with the Hulett Lady Red Devils, down just five points again at halftime, 26-21. But the Vikes were cold again in the third quarter and Hulett outscored them 15-8 and 8-4 in the second half to get a 49-33 win.

Despite the score, head coach Troy Reichert was pleased with his teamís effort.

We were up on them in almost every category, except the one that is most important. But I still see that as progress from where we were last year.Ē Itís been a difficult few years for the Lady Vikings with a lot of turnover in players and experience levels.

This week, the Vikings will host Sioux County on Friday with varsity games only. The boys will play at 4 p.m.; the girls will follow at 5:30 p.m.

On Monday, February 14, Glendo and Chugater are scheduled to bring players that will join forces to take on the junior varsity from Guernsey-Sunrise. Games are set for 5:30 (girls) and 7 p.m. for the boys.

They will have one remaining home game on the 17th when Hanna-Elk Mountain comes to town and wrap up the regular season at Rock River.

The regional tournament will be held in Douglas February 23-25. The state tournament will follow on March 2-4 in Casper.
