ORLEANS — Tied at 13 at halftime, the Lyndon Vikings pulled away in the second half to earn a 39-29 Division II rivalry win on Friday night.

“We played well defensively and made some timely plays down the stretch,” LI coach Patrick Rainville said.

Senior James Sanborn had a game-high 16 points to pace the Vikings, who snapped a three-game slide.

Up 23-22 after three, LI outscored the Rangers 16-7 over the final quarter. Chevy Bandy had seven of his 10 points for the Vikings in the last quarter before fouling out.

“In the second half we played with more pace, and that helped us on both ends of the floor,” Rainville noted.

Carter Montgomery paced Lake Region with 13 points.

Both teams are on the road Monday for 7 p.m. games. The Vikings visit Oxbow, while the Rangers will be at BFA-Fairfax.
