Commodore boys rally past T-Birds basketball
SWANTON — The Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team picked up a key road win on Monday, 65-61 at Missisquoi.
The victory pushed the Commodores to 8-9 with three homes games remaining on their regular season schedule: Milton on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and St. Albans and Middlebury next week.
They remain two games behind St. Albans, which is undefeated in the Lake Division, for the league lead. The six quality points for Monday’s road win vs. a Division I opponent also give VUHS a shot at a first-round home game in the D-II playoffs, depending on the results the rest of the way. The victory was the Commodores’ fourth in five outings and seventh in 10 tries.
On Monday, VUHS outscored Missisquoi by 19-10 in the fourth quarter to wipe out the 51-46 lead the T-Birds held after three periods.
Adam Gill scored 22 to pace the Commodores, and Dylan Bradford and Josh Dam chipped in 15 points apiece. Richard Walker scored 26 for Missisquoi, which dropped to 9-8.
