Roundup: Vikings, Lakes earn victories Tuesday

Vikings double up Hawks, 56-28

REPUBLIC — The Baraga Vikings traveled to Republic-Michigamme on Tuesday where they won 56-28.

Vikings coach Tom Goodreau was happy to see his team take and hold the lead for the entire match.

“We came out with a win, but it wasn’t pretty,” he said. “We allowed too many points and missed too many easy shots. Allison (Durant) and Jay (Lindemann) had nice games in the paint for us. We are a work in progress.”

Durant lead the Vikings in scoring 14 points, scoring 10 points inside the paint. Lindemann came in second for Baraga with 13 points. She made six points in the final eight minutes of the game. Reide Osterman scored nine points for the Vikings that included an early three-pointer in the first quarter.

Nikki Wertanen lead Republic with nine points, with five points in the first quarter. Tailyn Raisanen was the next highest scoring 7 with a three pointer outside of the paint in the third quarter. Raisanen also sunk two in at the free throw line in the fourth quarter.
