Purcellville, VA (Feb 25, 2016) – As each step is made toward the state tournament, you expect the opponents to get stronger and more complete. We already know that Loudoun Valley boys basketball includes depth and strength at every position, so what would the George Washington Eagles bring from Danville?
Chas Sumser was there to cover the action and posted a photo gallery including 102 images.
Well, of course GW brought quality players and a great team, but perhaps the bus ride slowed them in the first quarter. Behind the hot shooting of Dominic Peterson (10), the Vikings roared out to a 26-13 lead. But the Eagles were confident and bounced back to go into halftime just two points down at 36-34. They even took a slight lead early in the third quarter, but after that it was all Loudoun Valley as the Vikings powered their way to the region final.
Final score: Loudoun Valley 80 – GW-Danville 59.
