Decorah boys basketball hosted Crestwood on Thursday and just missed victory by a few points.
"We played a great first half. Give credit--they (Crestwood) hit shots and we didn't capitalize when we had the lead (in the second half). I believe our guys will get over the hump yet this season," said head coach Jonathan Carlson.
The Vikings led at halftime 26-19. Final score was Crestwood 48, Decorah 46. Keaton Solberg, Sam Robinson, and Pat Bockman each had nine points for Decorah.
All six of Decorah NEIC losses have been by five points or less.The Vikings are 3-6 in the Northeast Iowa Conference.
Decorah will host MFL on Saturday with the jv basketball game starting at approximately 6:00 p.m. due to a varsity wrestling tournament at DHS.
