Logan Halverson scored 17 points Tuesday night to lead the Decorah Vikings to a 39-38 victory at home against Prairie Du Chien.

While Decorah scored over 100 points earlier this season against Mabel-Canton, Tuesday night's regular season finale was a low-scoring game.  Decorah led just 6-4 after the first quarter, 20-12 at halftime and trailed 25-26 at the end of the third quarter.  But the Vikings came back to score 14 points in the fourth quarter and earn the victory.

Next up for the Vikings will be postseason tournament play.  That begins next Monday with a 6:30 p.m. game at Center Point-Urbana against Vinton-Shellsburg.
