Voyager Vikings Women's Basketball Team captured their first win of the season with balanced scoring and smothering defense to defeat Falls Lake Academy by a score of 38-33 in front of a cheering home crowd.
The Lady Vikings jumped out to an early lead then closed the first quarter leading 15-8. After building a nine point lead in the second quarter, Voyager saw its margin vanish as the Lady Firebirds blazed a 12-3 run of their own to take a 22-19 lead at halftime.
The Lady Vikings exited the locker room re-energized and focused for the second half steaming past their opponent on a 12-1 run. Using a full court press and relentless pressure on defense to cause turnovers, Voyager out-hustled and out-rebounded Falls Lake on both ends of the floor to regain the lead 31-23 by the end of the third quarter. Voyager fended off the visitor's last ditch frantic effort in the forth quarter to hold on for the 38-33 victory.
Voyager will host Franklinton High School on Thursday, November 30. Game time at 6 pm.
