A big fourth quarter scoring burst keyed Lyndonville to a 57-50 win over host Barker this evening in an early season clash of unbeatens.

Trailing most of the way, Barker pulled to within one, 40-39, at the outset of the final period after a three by Austin Sullivan and a layup by Nate Luckman.

However, Lyndonville answered right back with what proved to be a decisive 17-5 scoring surge to pull away for good by 11, 57-44, with just 1:40 remaining.

Two threes by Corey Hydock highlighted that decisive uprising which also included a layup off a steal and a free throw by Eddie Schildt, a jumper and a layup by Eric Neace, a layup by Jacob Hoffee and two free throws by Zach Johnson.

Schildt erupted for 10 quick points in the first quarter to spark Lyndonville out to a 15-12 lead.

The Tigers maintained a 27-20 lead at the half as Hoffee had a pair of buckets in the second period.

Barker twice pulled to within two in the third quarter, first at 27-25 after a free throw by Wasnock and again at 31-29 after a layup by Luckman. However, the Raiders could not pull even.

The Tigers moved back out to a six point, 40-34, lead at the three-quarter mark after a three by Hoffee and a layup by Schildt.

The Raiders again closed the gap to just one to open the final period but the Tigers countered with what proved to be a decisive 17-5 run to lock up the win.

Lyndonville is now 3-0 and Barker 4-1.
