For three quarters, the New Berlin West boys basketball team nipped at the heels of conference-leading New Berlin Eisenhower, but the Vikings never got close enough to take a real bite.
The Vikings succeeded in holding Timmer, who came in averaging 29 points per game, to 11 points in the first half, but they paid a price for such heavy attention, often leaving other shooters wide open.
Next up for the Vikings (2-6) are road trips to Whitnall and Greendale.
Eisenhower improved to 5-1 in the Woodland-West and 6-2 overall. The Lions host Greenfield on Tuesday and travel to Brown Deer on Friday.
