Lady Vikings Outlast Mt. de Sales for 45-32 Region Win

MACON, Ga. – The FPD defense held the Lady Cavaliers to single digits in the first three quarters as the Lady Vikings (3-7, 2-1 Reg. 7A) outlasted Mt. de Sales 45-32 on Friday night, Jan. 9 at McAuley Hall in GHSA Region-7 play.

“I thought or defensive effort is what won the game,” FPD head coach John Griffin said. “We came out and set the tone early and were able to build a solid lead.”

The Lady Vikings led 11-4 at the end of the first quarter and 20-13 at halftime.

FPD came out of the locker room on fire to begin the third quarter. Freshman guard Sadie Frame scored FPD’s first six points of a 13-point quarter to give the Lady Vikings a 33-20 advantage heading into the final eight minutes.

“We had a really good effort on defense and we played well as a team,” Frame said, who finished the game with eight points. “We were able to trap sometimes on defense and that led to some points in transition for us.”

FPD netted 12 points in the fourth quarter, holding off a Lady Cavalier 12-point quarter.

Sydney Reese and Kate Patterson paced the Lady Vikings with 10 points each. Jazzmine Waters posted a game-high 13 points.

“We played a lot of girls tonight,” Griffin said. “Many of our girls are continuing to catch on to what we’re doing as a team.”

Frame agrees.

“We keep trying to get better each game,” Frame said. “We keep putting our heart and effort into it.”

The Lady Vikings return to the court on Tuesday night, Jan. 13, hosting Tattnall Square Academy at 6 p.m. at the Middlebrooks Athletic Center in another Region-7 match.
