The battle of Norse warriors saw Valencia’s big, burly Vikings against the fast-paced Vikings of Samohi. Once again, speed proved superior as Samohi took down Valencia 59-43 on Thursday night.
Jordan Mathews dropped 28 points on Valencia to lead Samo, while Trey Thompson and Jordan Walker each added nine points.
Despite Samohi’s best efforts, the elusive two-guard Troy Hammel scored 21 points in the loss, while Daniel Salovich had eight points.
Samohi will have some down time to rest while they prepare for the post-holiday Oaks Christian Tournament, starting Dec. 27.
