Game summary

The Vikings started Tuesday's game with a 20-3 start in the first five minutes of play.

Using a full-court press defense, the Vikings forced the Blue Streaks to make mistakes and commit turnovers, at times slapping the ball right out of the air to gain possession.

This performance led the Vikings to a 40-5 lead at halftime.

The Vikings kept up the pressure in the second half, letting the home team cruise to a 67-9 victory.

Head coach Mason Imhof said he was very happy with his team's performance, saying it helps when you have so many players contribute.

"We had ten girls who put points on the board tonight, so it's great when you have that many players who can contribute," he said. "We were also very intense on defense and we communicated well throughout the whole game."

Imhof was particularly praising of freshman guard Destiny Piekarski, who has been consistently one of the top scorers for the Vikings this season.

"She's been leading the way for us in scoring and has been really going for it this season, but everybody else is stepping up too," he said.

The Vikings were back on the court Thursday when they traveled to take on the Kelliher/Northome Mustangs, the results of which were unavailable at press time.
