WAVERLY – The Waverly Viking boys basketball team dropped a 47-39 conference decision at the hands of the Norris Titans.

The two teams traded blows like heavyweight fighters over 32 minutes.

“We knew this was going to be a dog fight and that exactly what it was.  Credit to Norris and their game plan, they wanted Noah to work at getting his touches and challenged everything he would do,” said Waverly Coach Ryan Reeder.

The Titans limited leading scorer Noah Stoddard to just seven points, three rebounds and three assists.

Sophomore Cole Murray and junior Andrew Heffelfinger led the home team with 10 points apiece against the Titans.   

“I was very pleased with our effort, intensity, communication, and execution of our own game plan, but we could not put the ball in the hole

The Vikings next contest will be on Saturday when they welcome the Seward Bluejays to town for another conference battle.
