The air on Friday night at Veteran’s Field was electric.
Not only did the annual Barrel Bowl, which was not played last year due to a scheduling error, return, but it was the 100th meeting between the North Country Falcons/Newport High School and the Lyndon Institute Vikings.
The stage was set for a game of the ages to take place, and after a hot start to the contest, that is what seemed like would take place.
But after the first three possessions things would slow down.
In the third the Vikings would score a pair of touchdowns, with the second being the eventual game-winner, as the visitors took the Barrel back down south to Lyndonville on the backs of a 19-14 win over the Falcons.
