The Lourdes Academy Knights picked up a Trailways Conference win on Thursday over the Rio Vikings 57-36 in the Castle.

The Knights took it too the Vikings in the first half, outscoring Rio 26-10 in the first two quarters.

“I thought early in the game we did some real nice things on offense with the way were moving the ball and attacking their zone,” Knights coach Dennis Ruedinger said.

Rio would make a brief run back at the Knights in the third quarter before Lourdes would get back up to speed and put the Vikings away for good.

“I don’t think we handled their run very good,” Ruedinger said. “We need to work on fighting through those adverse situations.”

The Knights were led by Charlie Noone, who made three 3-pointers on his way to 15 points. Kyle Hellmann also dropped in three from deep and added 13 in the win for Lourdes.
