Guilford hands Hononegah first loss

ROCKFORD – The first time Hononegah and Guilford met up, the Indians scored 18 of the first 20 points in a 60-27 win that Guilford coach Mike Jamerson called humbling.

Saturday, the Vikings exacted revenge in Rockford with a 38-35 win that knocked Hononegah from the ranks of unbeatens.

This time, Guilford jumped out to an 11-2 lead and then held on behind 14 points from sophomore center Lindsey Knuth.

The Vikings improved to 9-3 in the NIC-10 and 10-3. With one regular-season game left, the Vikings are locked in to second place in Division B and will play either Harlem or Auburn in next Friday’s crossover games.

Although the coronavirus season caps what the Vikings can accomplish this year, the fact that it will return its entire team except for Kyleigh Thomas means the Vikings will be among the conference favorites in 2021-2022.
