SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – The Lady Vikings basketball team did not let the West Windsor-Plainsboro Knights even get on the horse, easily taking Wednesday afternoon’s joust at the high school 45-28.

“We played hard and did our game plan,” Head Vikings Coach Jeff Johnson said. “It worked out for us.”

South Brunswick opened on a high note, outscoring the Knights 11-4 in the first period and only allowing those points on four foul shots.

West Windsor did not make a free throw from the field until mid-way through the second quarter, and then only one three-point field goal in the entire third period.

The Vikings took a 23-8 lead into the locker room at halftime, and still led 34-11 at the end of three periods.

The Knights finally got some offensive production, outscoring the Vikings 17-11 in the last period.

“That is the worst basketball game one of my teams has ever played, terrible,” Knights Head Coach Bob Boyce said. “It was a lack of effort, a lack of understanding what was going on. It looked like we never ran a zone offense in our life.”

Boyce said the Knights only made two of 18 shots in the first half.

“You are not going to win many games (shooting that way),” he said. “I don’t ever remember having one of my teams shoot that poorly.”

The Vikings offense, on the other hand, was consistent throughout the game, scoring 11 in the first, second and fourth quarters and 12 in the third for its 45-point total.

Wednesday’s matchup looked much different that the Vikings Monday outing against the West Windsor-Plainsboro Pirates.

The Vikings came from behind in the first half to win the game 56-46.

Junior Amber Brown led the scoring Wednesday for South Brunswick with 18, followed by fellow junior Natalia Louhisdon with 10.

“West Windsor-Plainsboro South played harder and were more aggressive,” Brown said. “We came out and played hard because we knew what we were coming up against.”

Brown said the team watched film of the Knights and worked on its defense during Tuesday’s practice to get them ready for today.

“That practice really got us together,” Louhisdon said. “We played harder as a team rather than harder individually.”

The Vikings remain unbeaten at 4-0 as they prepare to take on Edison on the road Tuesday and then the Sayreville Bombers at home on Jan. 9.
