Jacob Pipho added 7 points and Briggs Duwe had 6 points for the Vikings.

The victory improved Decorah's record to 11 wins and 4 losses overall.  Decorah is 8-2 in the Northeast Iowa Conference.  Decorah will make another road trip on Thursday night, traveling to Denver, which is ranked #5 in Class 2A.
