Girls roundup: Vikings, Copper Kings, Lakes win

Vikings defeat Jets, 51-27

BARAGA — The Baraga Vikings girls basketball team came out fast and used the momentum built off a 14-2 start to defeat the Jeffers Jets, 51-27, in the Baraga Gym Friday.

The Vikings came out strong with Allison Durant leading with 15 points, most in the final eight minutes of the game. Jaylyne Lindemann brought in 14 points. Rylie Koskinen had 13 points.

“We came out strong in the first quarter but struggled in the second quarter,” said Baraga Vikings coach Tom Goodreau. “Jeffers tightened defensively and we made some poor decisions on offense with our shot selection. We came out in the second half and played more determined on both ends of the floor.”

Heidi Hillstrom lead the Jets with 11 points, three in the first half and six in the last 14 minutes.

Copper Kings win, 48-33, over Modetowners

GWINN — At Gwinn, the Modeltowners were plagued by poor shooting all game as they fell to the Copper Kings.

Marybeth Halonen led Calumet with 16 points, while Emily Curtice had 11 for Gwinn.

“We got got down early and stayed down,” Modeltowners head coach Ben Olsen said. “We were down by 10 early and cut it to four at the half. Calumet built a 14-point lead early in the fourth, and we cut it to six midway, and just couldn’t overcome the early deficit. They had an answer for every run we tried to make. It was another difficult night, shooting three quarters in single digits. Lots of credit to Calumet, who played zone and made us try to make shots, which we were unable to do.”

Gwinn travels to Westwood Tuesday.
