Demetria Bethel shot a 212, 142 and a 193 for a high 547 series for the Chiefs.

It was a strong comeback for the Vikings after dropping its match against Sayreville on Jan. 19.

The Vikings lost all three games in that match, and the first two were pretty alarming.

The second game was the most upsetting for South Brunswick, losing by 144 points.

The 837-693 score resulted because only one player from South Brunswick, Emily Alvarez, was able to score more than 145 points.

While four of the six Sayreville players scored at least that amount.

In Game One, Sayreville started off winning its first game against South Brunswick 835-718.

Mary Kate Kersting led the scoring for the Bombers, rolling a 209, while the leading scorer for the Vikings, Catherine Sawicki, only shot a 167.

By the time the final game rolled around South Brunswick was down by 261 points.

Even though the Vikings played better in the third game and shot 739, the most that day, it was not enough as Sayreville notched a 763.

With its win Wednesday, the Vikings are now 5-10 and Piscataway is 6-9 on the season.
