However, Lyndonville weathered the storm as two free throws by Savannah Poler along with one each by Ella Lewis, Kaylee Nesbitt and Karlee Rounds over the final 1:35 finally put a lock on the victory as the Lady Tigers improve to 6-6 on the season.

Lyndonville jumped out to a 10-2 first quarter lead as Dillenbeck netted 6 in the early going on two jumpers and a layup off a steal.

The Lady Tigers increased their lead to 14, 21-7, at the half as Lewis scored 7, including a three, and Rounds 4 in the second period.

Lyndonville maintained a 14 point, 34-20, advantage at the three-quarter mark as Lewis and Dillenbeck both scored 4, Nesbitt 3 and Weldon 2 in the third period. Radford scored 9, including a three, to keep Holley close.
