Purcellville, VA (Jan. 12, 2016) – The John Champe Knights visited the Loudoun Valley Vikings for a matchup between two conference leaders. Prior to the game, the Vikings were at the top of Conference 21B with an unblemished 10-0 record while the Knights led Conference 22 with an 8-1 mark. Chas Sumser was there to capture the images, emotion and story and posted this gallery with 111 images.
At the outset, their records might have been similar, but the Vikings clearly established momentum early moving out to an impressive 24-11 first quarter lead behind the power of a homestanding Jungle. Loudoun Valley extended that lead to 16 at halftime, but the Knights had almost equal footing for the second quarter.
After the break, Champe had their best quarter of the evening coming out of the locker room and knocking the lead down to six. But the Vikings’ depth and three-point shooting opened the game back up and finally sealed the deal.
Final Score: Loudoun Valley 82 – John Champe 66.
