Local Roundup: Raiders Run Past Vikings

LYNDON CENTER -- Madison Bennett scored 22 points and the visiting U-32 Raiders kept the Lyndon Vikings winless on the season with a 53-22 Division II girls basketball win Thursday night.

U-32 outscored Lyndon 14-0 in the first quarter and improved to 10-1 on the season. Just three Vikings scored on the night. Samantha Smith tallied nine points on three 3s while Kayla Jardine netted seven points and Rylie Nichols six.

"U-32 is probably one of the top three teams in Division II and they came out, pressed us and we didn't handle it very well," said LI coach Eric Berry. "It's growing pains for us. We're young as a group and we just need to keep getting better every day."

The Vikings host Thetford on Monday at 7.

U-32 (10-1): Alberdini 1-1-3, Keene 3-0-6, Herring 2-2-7, Schmoal 1-0-2, Webber 0-3-3, Barr 1-0-2, Madison Bennett 8-6-22, Gant 2-0-4, Kuske 1-0-2, Ksepka 1-0-2. Totals: 20-FG 12-23-FT 53.

LYNDON (0-9): Rylie Nichols 2-1-6, Samantha Smith 3-0-9, Kayla Jardine 3-1-7. Totals: 8-FG 2-8-FT 22.

U-32 14 12 17 10 -- 53

SJA 0 8 9 5 -- 22

3-Point FG: U 1 (Herring); L 3 (Smith 3). Total Fouls: U 11; L 13. Referees: Clodfelter, Buck. JV: U-32 won.


RIVENDELL 53, BMU 51: In Wells River, this second half of the home-and-home with the Bucks and Raptors was a far cry from Tuesday's 78-50 Rivendell win.

In crunch time, a Damian Smith 3-pointer gave the Bucks a 51-50 lead. The Raptors answered back with a layup with 30 seconds left; after the Bucks missed two crucial free throws, a Raptor free throw gave the visitors a two-point lead, 53-51 with 18 seconds left.

"We called timeout and drew up a play which we executed well," Bucks coach Brian Alley said. "We got a wide open look on a three, which missed. We got the rebound but the putback missed, then missed another putback."

"We played hard and well tonight," Alley added. "It was a hard-fought game between two good teams. There's not one thing that can be singled out, although missing 11 free throws in a two-point game...

"I think we're the best 5-4 team in D-IV," he added.

Tim Stimson, who scored 19 Tuesday, was held to five last night. Guard Damian Smith (game-high 20) and forward Nick Gordon (18) lit it up for BMU.

Next for BMU is a Saturday home game at 2:30 with Arlington.

RIVENDELL (9-1): Luke Bell 2-0-5, Tim Stimson 2-1-5, Cole Stever 0-2-2, Josh Marshall 6-1-13, Jack Steketee 6-3-15, Nate Eastman 5-3-13. Totals: 21-FG 10-17-FT 53.

BLUE MOUNTAIN (5-4): Chris Sevigney 2-1-6, Kyle Farquharson 2-1-5, Dillon Williams 1-0-2, Damian Smith 6-4-20, Nick Gordon 7-4-18. Totals: 18-FG 10-21-FT 51.
