Trips to state... conference crowns quality coaches and great players year after year. That's the recipe for a good high school sports rivalry and that is just what was both Parker and Middleton brought to the table tonight in Janesville.
A packed house on hand for the Vikings and Cardinals.... Parker can clinch the Big Eight title with a win.
Cardinals had other ideas taking a 12-2 after one quarter. Vikings would cut into the Cardinal lead to three thanks to a Catie O'Leary 3 point play part of her 13 points in the first half.
Parker trailed by 4 at the half but thanks to a big 4th quarter Middleton with a big fourth quarter the Cardinals let Janesville with a 52-41 and pull into a first place tie with Parker in the Big 8.
Parker won the first meeting back December.
