Long Trail tops Green Mountain by three

Posted
CHESTER — In a game that was close throughout, it was the Long Trail boys basketball team that prevailed against Green Mountain Wednesday night.

The Mountain Lions inched out a 46-43 win.

Down by two at halftime, LTS was able to take the momentum in the second half to outscore the opponent by five to secure the win.

The Mountain Lions had lost their previous two games in close matchups with West Rutland and Poultney, so Wednesday's win gets them back on track heading into the final game of the regular season.

LTS plays Arlington Saturday at Mount Anthony Union. Tip off is set for 2:30 p.m.
