The hometown Lakers hosted the Missisquoi Valley Union Thunderbirds on Friday evening, Jan. 31. The teams were tied at 7 apiece at the end of the first quarter and separated by two at the half, with Colchester holding the 22-20 point lead.

The Lakers retained a 36-33 point lead at the end of the third, and earned the 50-42 final in a hard fought battle.

The win improves the Lakers record to 4-8, but they will be tested throughout the week with games against Winooski (Feb. 4), Milton (Feb. 8) and Enosburg (Feb. 12).
