BRISTOL — The number of candidates running for the Bristol selectboard dwindled to two last week.

After the 14-0 Commodores sailed to an early 17-point lead, the 11-3 Tigers roared back and the second half saw seven lead changes and five ties before a Shep Carter three-pointer at 2:32 put VUHS up for good.
