Vikings post pair of tourney victories

Print Article

At Frenchtown for the Class C Tip-Off, the Charlo Vikings would prevail in both contests by a slim margin. On Friday against Valley Christian, Landers Smith led all scorers with 18 points. The Vikings held a 10-point lead entering the final frame, but had to hold off a rally by the Eagles.

On Saturday, the Vikings used a strong first half, then countered the contributions of their AA opponent during a second-half run by the Spartans. Coach Reese Cox pinpointed a key component of the outcome that hinged in Charlo’s favor, “We held Sentinel, a much taller team, to five offensive boards to our thirteen,” he said. Connor Koenig turned in a varsity career-high performance, while Nate Delaney and Smith scored in double digits as Charlo posted their second win of the Tip-Off.

Charlo will host Victor on Friday, Dec. 7.
