Eight pins powered Lyndonville to a 60-29 victory over Barker/Roy-Hart in a non league match this evening at Barker.

Jeff Gress Jr. (106), Tony Recco (126), Dustin Hinkley (132), Chris McDonald (138), Dustin Joy (145), Tom Follman (152), Devon Joy (160) and Frankie Carrasquillo all notched pins as the Tigers improve to 4-0.

Barker/Roy-Hart did jump out to an 18-0 lead at the outset on three forfeit wins.
However, Lyndonville answered right back with a pair of first period pins, by Carrasquillo in 1:06 over Kirk Fay and by Gress in :35 over Aaron Miller, along with two forfeits, to take the lead for good at 24-18.

Barker/Roy-Hart did close the gap to one at 24-23 after a technical fall victory by Brent Bachman but could not pull even.

Lyndonville then broke the match wide open with a barrage of six straight pins.

Again, a pair of first period pins, by Recco in 1:20 over Dan Wheeler and by Hinkley in :21 over AJ Schaffer, ignited that decisive uprising.

The Tigers string of pins kept rolling as McDonald scored a fall in 3:22 over Ryan Ulrich, Dustin Joy in :35 over Will Jensen, Follman in 3:15 over Dylan Mangan and Devon Joy in 2:29 over DJ Gardner.
