Chilton 38, Valders 37

Thomas Schwoerer’s shot from 15 feet rolled off the rim as the horn sounded as the visiting Vikings fell in a road nail-biter.

Chilton held Valders without a field goal until just more than two minutes to go in the first quarter, jumping out to a 8-1 lead before Zach Goedeke connected on a shot inside. Goedeke finished with a team-high 13 points to lead Valders while teammates Schwoerer and Forrest Fenlon added seven each.

The first quarter came to an end with the Vikings trailing 12-6 despite Goedeke’s basket being the only converted field goal for Valders.

It could have been much worse for the Vikings, but the Tigers failed to connect several long-range attempts while Valders made four free throws in the period.

Neither team scored for the first three minutes of the second quarter, with Chilton hitting a mid-range shot to extend its lead to 14-6.

The Vikings cut into the deficit when Schwoerer hit a 3-pointer for Valders’ second field goal of the night to trail 20-10 nearing halftime. It turned out to be a turning point for the Vikings, which hit two more shots in quick succession but still faced a 23-14 deficit entering the half.

Fenlon drained a 3-pointer for Valders to get the scoring started in the second half to cut into the Chilton lead. Goedeke began to heat up, hitting a pair to get the Vikings within four at 25-21 before the Tigers responded on the next possession.

After struggling early offensively, Goedeke took control of the game inside as Chilton didn’t have an answer defensively. The inside game helped open up the perimeter as Ryan Jirschele’s 3-pointer trimmed Valders deficit to 29-28.

Both sides began to cool off to end the frame, but the Vikings outscored the Tigers by six in the third quarter and trailed 31-28 entering the fourth.

Fenlon once again got the scoring started to start the fourth, hitting his second 3-pointer of the contest to get things level at 31-31. The two squads traded baskets for the next several minutes with Chilton side taking more than a one possession lead.

A pair of Thomas Schwoerer free throws gave Valders the lead at 37-35, its first since the Vikings led 1-0 to start the game.
