A road win is always good, especially when it’s in conference action and a record-breaking night.

The Decorah boys’ basketball team (5-3, 3-1 NEIC) did just that Friday night, defeating Waukon (3-4, 0-3 NEIC), 94-59. In recent record books, the most points scored by a Viking squad was 89 versus MFL MarMac during the 2009-2010 season. 

The Blue and Red scored 22 points in the first frame to lead 22-13. The squads combined to score 42 points in the second quarter, leaving the Vikes with a 47-30 advantage. There was no cutting into Decorah’s advantage in the second half as the Vikings rolled with 29 points in the third quarter and tacked on 18 in the fourth.

Decorah had a solid offensive performance by numerous players, with five athletes in double figures. Junior Charlie Robinson had a monster game with 21 points. Keaton Solberg came off the bench to provide 18 points, while Matthew Franzen scored 16 points. With 10 points apiece were Patrick Bockman and Logan Halverson. 

The Vikes host Spring Grove today, Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 7:30 p.m. They welcome MFL MarMac for another nonconference game Thursday, Jan. 9, at 7:45 p.m.
