Vikings Offense Struggles vs Chisago and Lose 47-48

We played at Chisago Lakes Saturday evening and came home with a 47-48 loss. Offensively we weren’t able to get on track all night, being held to 17 first half points. For the second game in a row we were able to hold our opponent to under 50 points which is great but we have

North Branch over Cambridge 65-33

We were able to get our first win of the year over the Cambridge-Isanti Bluejackets on Tuesday night. This was our first win against them since December 15, 2001! Our guys came out and played incredibly hard and focused, especially on the defensive end…allowing our fewest points since January 11, 2005. Both teams struggled out

Vikings Boys Fall to Tartan 44-75

In the second game of the year, we lost to perennial power Tartan 44-75. Tartan is one of the best programs in the state and is an annual state competitor in 4AAAA–which was great for us to see where we measure up against the best. Their defensive pressure proved to be the difference…but I think

Vikings Boys Open with 81-89 Loss to Becker

Finally! We finally got to this season after dealing with Covid restrictions/guidelines/recommendations for the last nine months and it was great having some fans in the stands and our players out on the court.

Boys Basketball Weekly Update January 19-25

This was rivalry week for us having two road games against Cambridge and Chisago Lakes. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get either win, despite playing good basketball for stretches in each of them.

Boys Basketball Weekly Update Jan 5-11

Thanks for taking some time to read these updates. Our team is sitting at 3-7, but for the most part I have liked the way that we are playing. Our biggest problem right now is putting together a full 36 minutes of consistent, well played basketball. With our lack of size, we are very reliant
