It was a night to forget for the Savannah Savages girls basketball team as they lost to the Seaman Vikings, 53-15.
The Savages’ defense kept them somewhat in this game but the lack of production on offense proved too much to overcome.
Savannah’s offense did show some signs of life in the fourth quarter, running plays to get decent shots and getting shots around the basket. The fourth quarter was Savannah’s highest scoring quarter.
Savannah had won three in a row against the Vikings coming into this one and still leads the all time series 15-6. Despite losing big in this one, the Savages have still won three of five against them. Savannah will face the Vikings again when they rematch on Jan. 30.
Even as Savannah falls to 0-5 on the year, this season can be used as a teaching experience for a very young Savages squad.
With no seniors and only three juniors on the team, there will be growing pains and learning moments throughout this season to build on for future seasons. If this team can grow and develop together, expect them to return to their 2021 form when they went 14-11 or better.
The Savages will look to pick up their first win of the year when they welcome East Buchanan (3-0) on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
