The Thompson Falls Bluehawks faced the Bigfork Valkyries on Saturday. Thompson Falls was outscored quickly and often, as it would be almost five minutes until the Bluehawks could put any points on the board. Thompson Falls fans were very vocal about the game, often commenting at the referees to “Call the fouls at both ends of the court.” The referees often ignored the vocal fans, though did comment once, “There was no contact.” Lexy VanElswyk was held to scoring 10 points, and Gillian Nelson scored a total of eight points. Shae Anderson of the Vals scored 16 points, with Abby Lembke scoring 10 points. The defense of the Vals often double teamed the main Lady Bluehawks and kept them from getting too close to the basket.

BOYS

The Bigfork Vikings had a strong start in the first quarter of their game Saturday, not allowing the Thompson Falls Bluehawks to score after a full five minutes had passed. The Thompson Falls boys found themselves looking at the blue jerseys of the Vikings often during the game, as they often had more than one player close to prevent them from scoring. By halftime, the score was already reflecting the growing lead, with the home team behind by nine points. The Bluehawks players continued to work the basketball on the court, yet they were not able to best the very quick and solid Vikings.
