    Yellow Medicine East gave a scare to the highly touted Minneota Vikings by securing a 10-point lead by halftime, but the Vikings outscored the Sting 36-22 in the second half to extend their winning streak to 21.
     
    The Sting suffered early season troubles, but over the past two weeks have posted impressive performance against some of the area’s top teams. The loss to Minneota was only their second in their last eight games.
    Angie Scheffler had 17 points and Kylie Jans added 14 for YME. Emily Baker added six rebounds, four assists and three blocks to go along with a seven-point scoring night.
     
    Minneota freshman, post Taylor Reiss, put up 20 points to help the Vikings, who have only lossed to AAA Marshall this season (23-1),  claw back into the second half.
    YME (12-9)                  26 22 — 48
    Minneota (23-1)               16 36 — 52
