Purellville, VA (Jan. 7, 2016) – The Potomac Falls Panthers visited the Loudoun Valley Vikings for an early season matchup between two teams that have started the season on hot streaks. Chas Sumser was there to capture the images, emotion and story and posted this gallery with 86 images.
The Panthers came on strong in the first quarter before the Vikings surged to take a 15-13 lead as the period ended. The second quarter went the same way, but again Loudoun Valley closed the gap and tied the score, 31-31, at halftime.
But the Vikings were out to prove that their undefeated run was no fluke and came out of the locker room with a relentless full-court press that netted thirty points and a fourteen point lead by the end of the third quarter. The Panthers narrowed the margin slightly in the fourth quarter, but not enough to threaten to win the game.
Final Score: Loudoun Valley 76 – Potomac Falls 68.
