Bethel — With Austin Sayers pouring in a game-high 25 points, the Mid Vermont Christian School boys basketball team hit the road for a 40-30 win at Whitcomb on Saturday.
Sayers’ output came in handy in a tight contest, as the Eagles used a 12-6 second quarter to open an 18-12 lead at halftime. Mid Vermont Christian’s defense also had a big game, holding the Hornets (0-2) to single digits in each of the first three quarters of play.
Sophomore James Horner scored eight points and junior Anthony LaPlaca added six for MVCS, which travels to Chelsea tomorrow.
Steven Davis led Whitcomb with 13 points, and Matt Kill contributed 10. The Hornets host undefeated Sharon Academy tomorrow.

Proctor Acad. 38, KUA 29
Lawrence, Mass. — The Wildcats split two games on Saturday, beating Groton on the road before dropping a contest to Lakes Region rival Proctor at Lawrence Academy.
Kimball Union’s pressure defense helped overturn a one-point deficit at halftime and key the morning victory. Shannon Walsh had a career-high 25 points for the Wildcats, going 4-for-4 from the foul line, while Fiekah Fataar added 19 points.
Fataar scored eight points out of the gate against Proctor, but the Hornets’ Elemy Colome scored all of her 14 points in the first half to give Proctor the lead for good.
