Taking a look at Coast Radio Sports…
Vikings Swept by Pirates
Marshfield defeated Siuslaw 55-41 last night for a girls Far West Basketball victory in Florence. The Lady Vikings fell behind early, but had cut the lead to only two with 4 ½ minutes remaining in the game before the Pirates put a push on to spread the lead and win by 14.
For the boys, the Vikings trailed 11-nothing with less than a minute left in the first quarter and the Pirates cruised to a 56-44 win.
The Vikings will be on the road tomorrow to Winston where they’ll take on the Douglas Trojans.
