Petersburg High School’s basketball teams split their first conference games of the season last weekend on the road in Haines.
Both the Vikings and Lady Vikings had one win and one loss against the Glacier Bears. Those were the first games of the season to count for seeding at the regional tournament next month.
The girls team won Friday night 42-32 over Haines. Ines Larson scored 22 points in that game and Adrianna Stough added eight. Larson had another 22 points the following day and Stough scored 12 but Haines won on Saturday 45-41.
Joe Viechnicki spoke with girls head coach Dino Brock about that series.
The boys also split their series in Haines, but not before a 66-52 road win against Thunder Mountain last Thursday in Juneau. Kyle Biggers had 17 points and 11 rebounds in that game. Michael Durkin scored 16, Jack Engel had 15 and Lathum Johnson put in 12.
In Haines the Vikings lost 39-38 Friday night. Johnson led scoring for Petersburg with 14 points. Petersburg won Saturday 56-48. Biggers led scoring that day with 16 points. Durkin scored 12, Engel 10 points and Rik Cumps added eight.
