The Lady Vikings outscored the Lady Tomcats throughout the game, especially in the third quarter as they went into the fourth quarter with a 27-point lead at 50-23.

Friday, Jan. 3, the Vinton County boys’ game against the Meigs Marauders was postponed to a later date to be determined.
On Saturday, Jan. 4, the Vikings faced off against the Piketon Redstreaks on the campus of Ohio University-Chillicothe.
The Vikings fell to the Redstreaks in a close game, by a final score of 47-56.
Piketon came out and dominated the first quarter with a 22-9 lead in scoring. The second quarter closed the gap between the two teams by Vinton County switching to a full-court press. Drawing too many fouls, however, Piketon took full advantage and it just wasn’t enough for the Vikings to come back in the second half.
Vinton County now falls to 3-4 this season and 1-1 in the TVC-Ohio.
The Vikings will host the Logan Chieftains on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
