When the Vandalia Vandals played at Litchfield in December, they let one slip away.
Not this time.
History did not repeat itself, as the Vandals held off the Litchfield Panthers late, securing a 62-54 home victory on Friday night.
The loss avenged a Dec. 19 loss to the Panthers. In that game, the Vandals overcame an 11-point deficit late in the game, but then couldn't hold on, suffering a disappointing loss.
In Friday's rematch, the Vandals built a 10-point lead early in the game, and then held off the Panthers in the fourth quarter.
