Despite going the first seven minutes of the second quarter without a field goal Lyndonville maintained a 12 point, 26-14, lead at the half on a late three by Hydock and jumper by Nate Poler.

Holley did cut the deficit to 8, 32-24, midway through the third period after an 8-2 run on two baskets by Dylan Hillabush and one each by Patrick Bower and Andrew Moseman. However, the Hawks would get no closer.

Lyndonville answered back with a key 13-0 run to close the period and pull away for good by a 21 point, 45-24, margin at the three-quarter mark. Eric Neace had a layup off a steal, a layup and two free throws, Hydock a three and a layup and Poler a jumper during that surge.

Hydock finished with a game high 20 points and Neace 17 as Jacob Hoffee added 8, Matt Hess 6, Poler 5 and Brody Brown 1.

Hillabush led Holley with 12 as Moseman, Bower and Isaiah Flow each added 6, Derek McArthur and Mike Passarell 3 and Brandon Dillenbeck and Matt DeSimone 1.

Lyndonville improves to 1-3 in the league and 5-5 overall while Holley slips to 0-6, 0-10.
