McARTHUR - The Vinton County Lady Vikings are enjoying a special season and it continued on Monday night with a 73-39 win over Marietta in a non-league contest.

Before the game, the VCHS Athletic Department conducted Senior Night, recognizing three seniors, Cassie Bentley, Erin Jones and Darian Radabaugh. Bentley will continue her basketball career at Shawnee State University next year, and Radabaugh plans to play softball at Transylvania University. Jones is also looking for an opportunity to play college basketball as well.

Against the Lady Tigers, the Lady Vikings offensive attack was well balanced as four players reached double figures, led by Bentley with a game-high 28 points and 12 rebounds. Darian Radabaugh turned in a quality effort with 14 points while Morgan Bentley added 12 and Josie Ousley had 10.

Marietta did not have anyone reach the double-digits as Audi Hill led the Lady Tigers with nine points.

During his post-game comments, Lady Vikings' head coach Rodd Bentley explained the well-balanced effort is no secret as it is part of the chemistry this team has developed.

"The communication between the players is what I like," said Bentley. "We are really coming together and we got the number-one seed in the sectional tournament."

The tournament trail begins Wednesday, February 14, at Logan High School, when the Lady Vikings face the winner of the New Lexington, River Valley game.

On Monday, the Lady Vikings got off to a good start as they raced out to an early 8-2 lead on a shot by Radabaugh. The Lady Vikings cruised to a 15-7 lead to end the first quarter of play. Cassie Bentley had the hot hand with a nine-point performance.

In the second quarter, the onslaught continued but Marietta cut the deficit to four (20-16) at the 3:23 mark.

However, the Lady Vikings converted an old-fashion three-point play when Cassie Bentley scored and was fouled. Later, Morgan Bentley hit a three-pointer to put the Lady Vikings up by 15 points, before Marietta scored just before the half ended to trail 31-18.

Vinton County had a productive offensive performance in the third quarter with a 24-point effort. Radabaugh paced the team with a seven-point effort while Morgan Bentley sank to three-pointers for six points. With the effort, the Lady Vikings led 55-31 and outscored Marietta 18-8 for the 34-point win.

The Lady Vikings return to the court today when they travel to Wheelersburg and will close out their TVC Ohio Division regular season at River Valley on Thursday night.
