From the Sports Desk:

The 7th grade A team took on Thompson last night.  Led by the beautiful passing of Liam O’Donaghue, Colin Sprague’s 10 points and Billy Paris’ 14 points the Vikings lowered the boom on the Thunder, winning 54-36.

The 7th grade B team came up short in their game against Thompson last night.  Drew Peters led the Vikings with 7 points.  Special shout outs go to JT McCormick, who played incredibly tough against an opposing player who was at least 8 inches taller than he was and Ben Burghard, who handled the rock beautifully and was the best defender on the court.

The 8th grade A basketball team battled the entire game last night against Thompson.  Down 5 with 5 seconds left, Jimmy Rasmussen hit a deep three pointer. The Vikings then stole the inbound play and got up a shot at the buzzer that just didn't go in. 

After getting hit with adversity to open the game, the 8th grade B team stormed out of the gates in the second half.  The team was led by JT Frieders’ energetic play and some tough post defense by Matt Fregly and Cal Hruby.  The boys overcame an 11-point deficit to defeat Thompson in overtime.
