The Maniacs dropped a tight game against the Vikings in the Nyssa Christian Tournament on Friday, Dec. 17 held in Nyssa, OR.

Orofino (6-7) trailed by a single point at halftime before the Vandals (3-6) opened a two-possession lead through three and held steady in the fourth.

Maniac leaders Grace Beardin (eight points) and Riley Schwartz (six points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals) fouled out, and Jaelyn Miller (nine points, two steals) went down injured, leaving the team shorthanded in the closing stretch.

“We lost to McCall by five in our fourth game, so we kind of knew what to expect,” Maniacs coach Tessa Mullinix told the Lewiston Tribune. “We played better than the first time, but so did they, and clearly their 3-point shot was falling.”
