Leesburg, VA (Feb 8, 2016) – The setup was simple, put two of the top teams in Conference 21B into a gym and see what happens. The Loudoun Valley Vikings were definitely the underdogs given that the Loudoun County Raiders were riding a sixteen-game winning streak, but these schools have a rivalry longer than any in the county so anything was possible.
Chas Sumser was there to cover the action and posted a photo gallery including 139 images.
The game was tied, 11-11, at the end of the first quarter, but the Lady Raiders started getting warmed up and surged in front when play resumed. The Lady Vikings were up to the challenge, and fought back late in the half to narrow the margin to just four points, 26-22. The outcome was settled in the third quarter, however, when Loudoun County went on a 17-5 run.
Final score: Loudoun County 55 – Loudoun Valley 41.
