BOLINGBROOK – Facing its former head coach as well as a few former teammates, Bolingbrook's girls basketball team fell to Homewood-Flossmoor 77-44 on Jan. 14.

The Vikings are coached by Tony Smith, who built up Bolingbrook's program and guided the Raiders to four state titles before departing in May. H-F's Amarah Coleman, who played for Bolingbrook last season, led all scorers with 28 points. Destiny Harris, Kristen Moore and Lexi Smith are current Vikings who also played for the Raiders last season.

The loss was Bolingbrook's first SouthWest Suburban Blue loss since February of 2006 and snapped its 93-game winning streak in the conference.

Bolingbrook (9-3 overall, 4-1 SWSB) was down 13-11 heading into the second quarter, but the Vikings (12-2, 5-0) went on a 19-2 run at the start of the frame and were up 34-16 at halftime.

Aysia Bugg paced the Raiders with 11 points and Ryaen Johnson added seven points and five rebounds.

Bolingbrook won't have time to dwell on the loss as it is scheduled to host SWSB foe Lockport at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16.
