The Huntington North High School varsity girls’ basketball team hosted Snider High School on Friday, Nov. 13, for their 2020 home opener.

Snider took an early lead, keeping an 11-point lead until the end of the first quarter. With under two minutes left to go in quarter one, HN finally made it onto the board with two free throws. At the end of the quarter, Snider still had their 11-point lead, with scores standing at 13-2.

The Lady Vikings started to play catch-up during the second quarter, with Taylor Double, Reece Colclesser and Katelynn Arnold each providing two points and Grace Sell draining a three. Snider advanced to a score of 18, bringing them to a thinner, seven-point advantage.

This trend remained throughout the rest of the game, with the Vikings never quite being able to catch up to Snider. With 2:54 left in the third quarter, HN had gathered five more points while Snider had gathered six, bringing the score to 24-16 in favor of Snider.

Both teams came alive in quarter four. With just over five minutes left to play, HN jumped to 23 points and Snider jumped to 31, and then quickly moved to 31-40 with less than a minute to play.

The final score was 35-42 in favor of Snider.

Overall, Reece Colclesser brought in 10 points for the Vikings, Taylor Double and Grace Gross each brought in seven points, Leah Campbell brought in five points and both Grace Sell and Katelynn Arnold brought three.

This brings the record for the Lady Vikings varsity basketball team to 0-1.
