Leesburg, VA (February 7, 2017) – In other years, a late-season matchup between Loudoun Valley and Loudoun County would be on everyone’s must-see list in front of a packed house and competing hype squads. But this time around the Vikings are fighting for the top seed in the conference tournament while the Raiders are likely to get the fifth seed of six so the conditions were a lot less intense.

Loudoun Valley was on cruise control from the start. They scored effortlessly and made it extremely difficult for Loudoun County to do the same. By quarter, the Vikings’ leads went from 17 to 31 to 39 and it looked like they were headed for a 100 point game. The gritty Raiders, however, stayed engaged despite the lopsided margin hitting a flurry of three’s in the final quarter.
Final score: Loudoun Valley 91 – Loudoun County 45.
