The Viking eclipsed the 1,000-point barrier for his career on Friday night, but it came in a 79-51 loss to first-place and unbeaten Donegal in Mount Joy. The setback drops Northern Lebanon to 15-6 overall and more importantly 10-5 in Section Three.
Needing 25 points to reach 1,000, Light ended the night with 26 points, using a drive down the right side of the lane with 4:53 to play in the game to eclipse the milestone.
Pat Stevens was the only other NL player in double figures, scoring 13.
Donegal (21-0, 15-0) led just 18-15 after one quarter but outscored the Vikings 49-28 in the middle two periods to build up a hefty lead.
Elsewhere in Section Three, Lampeter-Strasburg defeated Garden Spot 64-54 to move into sole possession of second place. L-S travels to Northern Lebanon on Tuesday night in the regular-season finale where the winner will earn an L-L League playoff berth.
