LEIPSIC — Arlington was determined to not let Leipsic senior Heather Lammers get on a roll from behind the three-point line Thursday night.

They did that as the Viking senior did not attempt a three-point shot in the game. Instead Leipsic found a way to get her involved in the offense in the paint.

Lammers scored six points in the third quarter and Leipsic used a pair of three-pointers in the quarter as they overcame the Red Devils for a 44-35 BVC win. The win keeps Leipsic in second place in the BVC at 5-1 and they are 12-1 with their tenth straight win. Arlington dropped to 4-2 in he BVC.

After Lammers hit five three-pointers in the Vikings win over Patrick Henry Tuesday night, the Red Devils closely guarded Lammers to not her get off a shot from the outside. So with her being bottled up, Leipsic was able to work the ball and get it into her hands in close and she responded with six points in the paint in the pivotal third quarter for Leipsic.

A five footer from Lammers pulled the Vikings within 26-24 in the third quarter before Morgan Niese got loose in the right corner and drained a trhee-pointer with 3:30 left on the clock that gave the Vikings the lead for good. Another three by Carlee Siefker later in the quarter and a free throw by Claire Rigel helped Leipsic to a 33-29 lead going to the final quarter.

In the final quarter, the Viking defense was stout as they outscored the Red Devils 11-6. Arlington hit only two field goal attempts in the fourth quarter, one to start the final period and the other one came with 13 seconds left. In between the Vikings outscored the Red Devils 9-2 as the majority of Leipsic's points came at the free throw line.

Arlington struggled offensively as they hit only 14-of-51 shot attempts and were held to 15 points in the second half.

Kierra Meyer had a double-double for the Vikings with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Lammers finished with 11 points and eight rebounds, while Siefker had eight points.

Jenna Pepple led the Red Devils with 16 points and Hannah Willow finished with 12 points. Maria Crawford pulled down five rebounds for Arlington.
