UTICA — It took over three quarters for the Utica boys basketball team to get going on Saturday.

The Redskins nearly doubled their point total in the fourth quarter alone, but it wasn’t enough as the Northridge Vikings held them off, 44-37, in Licking County League play.

“We waited too long to play,” Utica coach Brian Radabaugh said. “We were very bad offensively in the first half. It was a little better in the third quarter. Once we played desperately, we played better. We have to bottle that up and start with that.”
