It was no trouble picking up the win for the Decorah girls’ basketball team Tuesday night as the Vikes (17-2, 8-0 NEIC) downed Independence (5-13) at home, 71-23.
Decorah led off the game with a 14-9 first quarter lead that exponentially grew in the second period as the Vikes outscored the visitors 30-2, to be on top at halftime, 44-11. Decorah continued to maintain its comfortable advantage throughout the second half to claim the easy victory.
Individual stats were unavailable at press time.
The Lady Vikes have one more contest this week as Decorah travels to Waukon Friday, Feb. 3, for a 6 p.m. tip off.
