North Advances to City Series Championship!

North Advances to City Series Championship!
Posted on 02/11/2021
For the first time since 2005, the Viking boys team will compete for a city title. The staff in attendance were treated to a show. It was a loud, fast, physical game. Our guys Did. Not. Quit.

I texted out updates during the game and mistakenly identified Michael Brown as the Viking who tipped in the winning basket with :03 on the clock. There were a lot of Vikings crashing the boards and more than one pair of hands looking to control the tip in. Luther Darisaw, freshman, was actually the one who tipped in the final 2. The Vikings will play Buchtel at Firestone on Saturday at 6:00 for the championship game.

As reported to the Beacon:
North 51 (8-7)
East 49

North (#3) upsets East (#2) to advance to the City Series Championship Game on Saturday. Luther Darisaw, Fr (North) scored the game-winning basket on a tip-in with 3 seconds remaining in the game.

Eric Holley (East) led all scorers with 27 points
North's Elijah Humphrey scored 16 and Cartel Lamb 14 to lead the Vikings.

Scoring for the Vikings:
Elijah Humphrey with 16
Cartel Lamb with 14
Luther Darisaw with 8
Michael Brown with 7
Rashid Chisholm with 6
