Tuesday night’s game pitted the Walled Lake Central Vikings against the Milford Mavericks. The Vikings held on to win a closely fought contest 40-36. The game was a back and forth affair with the Mavericks taking a 10-8 lead into the 2nd quarter with the strength of a solid offensive game by Lauren Carrannanto and a great defensive effort by Bailey Pattinson. The Vikings would pull ahead 21-16 going into the half. After the break the Mavs worked their way back into the game and pulled within 2 going into the 4th quarter. It looked as if Walled Lake was going to pull away until Jayne Bailey fed Megan Wallace who hit a clutch triple to make it a 2 point game once again with 20 seconds to go. Viking free throws put the game out of reach and gave Walled Lake the sweep in the series for the regular season. The Vikings were led by Rizaria Franklin and Maria Teodoro with 14 and 10 points respectively. The Mavs’ leading contributors were Lauren Carrannanto with 13 points and 7 rebounds and Allison Smith with 8 points.
