Gibraltar shows flexibility in win over Southern Door

In a pivotal matchup to determine who would claim sole possession of third place in the Packerland Conference, it was the Gibraltar girls basketball team that stepped up to the plate. The Vikings defeated the Eagles 59-51 on Tuesday, placing the team just one game behind Algoma in the race for second place in the conference. The win over Southern Door did not come easy, with several Vikings picking up fouls that head coach Josh Kropuenske attributed to fatigue in the second half. However, a switch to a zone defense helped tremendously as Gibraltar was able to fend off the Eagles down the stretch. Kropuenske said a big part of the team's success was due to pre-game preparation.

 


Gibraltar, now possessing a 7-4 record on the season and a 6-2 record in conference play, sits behind Algoma and Kewaunee in the Packerland Conference standings. A non-conference match-up with Coleman awaits the Vikings on Saturday before a meeting with Sturgeon Bay on Monday.
