WBK: Nordgaard Leads No. 18 Vikings To 95-49 Victory

WBK: Nordgaard Leads No. 18 Vikings To 95-49 Victory
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Eleven Vikings scored as they downed Dakota Wesleyan 95-49 on Wednesday night.  The Vikings move to 2-0 in the young 2012-13 season and the Tigers remain 4-0 with this game serving as an exhibition for DWU.

Riley Nordgaard notched her first career double-double by scoring 12 points and ripping down 11 rebounds.  Alex Feeney led the Vikings with 15 points, 13 of which came in the first half.

Faith Tinklenberg dropped 11 points and Cami Koehn knocked down 10 to go with a game-high six assists. The Vikings racked up 15 steals as a team and forced 29 DWU turnovers.  The Vikings grabbed 21 offensive rebounds resulting in 27 second chance points.

The Augustana bench outscored Dakota Wesleyan's entire team 51-49, and the Viking reserves shot 52.7 percent (19-36).

In the first half, Augustana gradually built a solid lead over the Tigers, reaching double digits just eight minutes into the game.  Feeney’s early nine points took the Vikings into the media timeout with an 11-point lead.

Sure-shooting Nordgaard snatched five rebounds and chipped in with five points on 2-2 shooting off the bench.  Emily Schulte closed out the first half with a three-point play off an offensive rebound to give her seven points and put the Vikings up 23 points entering intermission.

Augustana turned 13 Dakota Wesleyan turnovers into 18 points and the Vikings assisted on 14 of their 18 field goals in the first stanza, including five by Koehn.

The Tigers’ bench provided much of their scoring with Celeste Beck leading all non-starters in the first half with nine points.  Only three DWU players were able to score the first half racking up just three assists.

To open the second half, Augustana held the Tigers scoreless for 3:32 before a Kim Johnson layup broke the drought. Andrea Whitney’s putback gave the Vikings a 30-point lead less than four minutes into the second half.

A balanced second-half attack by the Vikings stretched their lead to 40, with just over three minutes to play and the Vikings coasted to their 95-49 victory.  Second chance opportunities produced 22 points in the second half fueling the blowout.

Schulte finished the game with nine points, as did freshman Nicole Kerkhoff. In her first action at Augustana, Chandler Nielsen netted eight points.

For Dakota Wesleyan, Beck finished with a game-high 22 points and Johnson added 19 to go with nine rebounds.

The Vikings are off until they travel to Honolulu, Hawaii to take part in the Oahu Classic beginning on Nov. 22.
