OTSELIC – Both the Otselic Valley boy’s and girl’s varsity basketball teams were in action last Saturday, Jan. 21, as they faced off against Brookfield.
The boy’s, who played at home at 4 p.m., were trounced by their opposition, and lost by 30 points, on a final score of 53-23.
The Viking offense struggled to get any type of offense going in this game, and couldn’t do anything to stop their opponents on the defense end of the court in transition, resulting in the grim defeat.
“Brookfield came to play and we did not put forth the effort needed,” said OV head coach Jacob Preston following the loss. “We are lacking any sort of leadership from upper classmen that have the experience.”
Tanner Costa and Larry Hackett finished tied top scorers for the Vikings on the night, both hitting six points.
The girl’s, who who also played at home at 1 p.m., didn’t fare much better than their counterparts. They suffered a 20-point defeat, on a scoreline of 63-43.
