The Decorah Viking boys basketball team is beginning to put together a string of victories.  Decorah traveled to Charles City on Friday night and came away with its latest win, a 79-66 victory over the Comets.

Both teams were slow to get going in the first half, with Decorah leading 34-18 at intermission.  But the Vikings scored 45 points in the second half as a number of players had good nights.  Jerod Redenius had 15 points, Patrick Bockman scored 13, Tynan Nelson had 10 points, Jonah Johnson had 10 points and Nick Bockman had 9 points.  Jack Molstead of Charles City led all scorers with 37 points, but that wasn't enough to produce a "W."

Decorah is now 6-5 in the NEIC and 10-10 overall.  The Vikings will travel to Crestwood on Tuesday night to close out their conference schedule.  Decorah's postseason assignment will be announced on Monday night.
