Despite Friday’s loss at home
against Corbett (3-6), the Lady Vikings
continue to improve in the pre-season,
with the final score not reflective of
what was a hard-fought win for the vis-
iting Cardinals line-up.
Tied at 26-26 entering halftime,
Siuslaw fell behind 26-34 in th opening
minutes of the third quarter, then held
the Cardinals to just one basket during
the last 4 minutes of the period.
Meanwhile, sophomore Mia Collins,
along
with
freshmen
Gracie
Freudenthal and Brea Blankenship,
contributed 7 points, pulling the Lady
C ORBETT
Viks to within 3 points entering the
fourth quarter, 33-36.
In response to Siuslaw’s taut 2-3
zone defense, Corbett began to strike
from outside the arc. Though senior
guard Carreina Greenburg was able to
penetrate th Cardinals’ defense, and

A pair of steals and long 3-pointers
gave Corbett a 14-8 lead with 29 sec-
onds in the period, but senior Jake
Hickson drained his own 3-pointer to
end the quarter and put the Viks back
within 3 points, 11-14, to start the sec-
ond period.
Siuslaw’s offense switched gears,
The Vikings found themselves in a
tug of war during Friday’s non-league
home stand against Corbett (3-5).
Though Siuslaw won the tipoff and
scored the first point on a charity shot
from senior Jared Brandt, the Cardinals
countered at the opposite end of the
hardwood — setting a tone that would
last for the next 30 minutes of playing
time.

Friday night, Mapleton hosted
Yoncalla for a nonleague match-up that
began with the girls’ game, which
proved to be a low-scoring affair that

The Lady Eagles, from the Skyline

build a quick lead toward a 69-40 win.
