Despite the Vikings holding the lead for three quarters, the women’s basketball team eventually lost to the Concordia University Cavaliers 70-62 in Sam Carver Gymnasium on Thursday, Jan. 10.

The Vikings started strong, winning the tip-off and finishing the first quarter of the game ahead by eight points with the score at 20-12.

The Vikings continued to play well through the second quarter and held a 32-28 lead going into halftime.

After the half they managed to hold onto the lead, and let the Cavaliers narrow the gap by a single point in the third quarter. That left the score at 52-49 as the game entered the fourth quarter.

The Cavaliers tied with the Vikings at the top of the final quarter. Western then regained the lead until, with 3:06 left in the game, the Cavaliers took control. Foul trouble on the Vikings’ part gave the Cavaliers opportunities which they exploited until, free throw by free throw, they ultimately took the game 70-62.
