The first conference game for the Reds was a success with a win over the Vikings from Valley.  The Reds took the road on Tuesday night to take on the 5-3 Vikings where they snatched the lead early and didn’t look back after.  Ahana Leffler (22) said, “Our success so far has been because we work together as a team and always work hard for each other.”  

The team’s defense was suffocating the Vikings offense, as they have been with their other opponents throughout the year.  They held the Vikings to 10 points or less in each of the four quarters.  The team collected 14 steals in the game and forced 22 turnovers.

The final score of the game was a Reds win 55-32.  The Reds were led in the scoring column by Leffler who had 16 points in the matchup.  Tayla Wiedeman (24) also had double-digit points with 10 in the game.  She said, “When we all play together and don’t get down on ourselves, we play really well.”  

Emily Maske (23) had a big game on the glass where she pulled down six rebounds, leading the team.  

Next up for the Reds, it’s Resurrection Christian.  They will take on the Cougars back at home.  “Our mindset going into the game is that we are a deeper team and have to work harder,” Leffler said.   Resurrection Christian is 8-2 on the year and are coming off of a win in their first conference game against Frontier Academy.  Weideman before the game said, “We have to come out with energy to set the tone of the game and start off in the lead.”
