Tonight the St. Ignace Saints and Baraga Vikings both traveled to Escanaba to take each other on in the quarterfinal, and from the tip it was just about all Saints, although the lopsided score, Baraga would never give up.
The first quarter both teams looked a little nervous, but size took over for St. Ignace and they were able to get offensive rebounds, and they pressed Baraga up and down the court, which for Baraga was really tough with especially with only seven players on the team.
