It’s hard to believe that the Northland Vikings haven’t lost a City League North Division game since February 2006. They also haven’t lost to a South Division team since 2005.

The streak continued on Tuesday night as the Vikings entertained their fans with a 120-51 win over the Linden-McKinley Panthers.

The usual players led the way, Jordan Potts scored 25 with Jalen Robinson adding 20 and Devon Scott chipped in with 14.

Add in Ke’chaun Lewis’ 20 points and it shows that Sean Taylor’s team is more than just the three beforementioned seniors.

The Vikings are 14-1 overall, 11-0 in the North Division and seems headed for another City League championship game.

The game was a rout from the beginning as the Vikings led 28-16 at the end of the first quarter and 58-31 at the half. The lead grew to 85-43 after 3 quarters and the Vikings coasted home to the win.

Patrick Ngene-Igwe led the Panthers with 16 points as the team falls to 3-13, 0-8 in the North Division.
