After beating San Ysidro in a big Division III matchup in the tournament and running over Preuss UCSD 82-35 to advance to the Championship game against the Chieftains the Norsemen knew they had one more step and that was to win and claim the championship.

Indeed the Valhalla Norsemen did that on Friday as they raced past the Chieftains.

Leading the charge for the Norsemen was Dominic Safarta who finished with a double-double of 36 points and dishing 11 assists. His performance catapulted him to being named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

Safarta’s teammate Joe Avalos was named to the first team for his efforts as he knocked down a total 19 three-pointers in the entire tournament.

With the victory, the Norsemen remain undefeated at 5-0 and will next play on the 14th of December in the Grossmont Winter Tournament against University City in a 5 pm tipoff.
