CHASSELL - A strong night on the glass propelled Baraga to a 37-25 road win over Chassell in Copper Country Conference play.
Jenna Heikkinen and Gabby Mayo pulled down 12 rebounds apiece as the Lady Vikings improved to 3-10 (2-4 CCC).
Baraga also had a strong night on defense, holding the Panthers (3-10, 0-6 CCC) to just six points in the first half.
However, Baraga's offense generated only 13 in the same span, so safety wasn't achieved until the Lady Vikings put up 13 and 11 points over the last two quarters.
Heikkinen's nine points led Baraga's offense. The Lady Vikings host Jeffers tonight.
Chassell got a team-best eight points from Kirsten Daavettila. The Panthers will try to break a six-game losing skid at home tonight against Lake Linden-Hubbell.
