Game Recap

Bombers fall to Taft. (Crown Point)
The Bombers 1st game back after the Christmas Holidays showed that they weren’t in basketball shape after the 2 week break. They came out very sharp to start the game, but simply ran out of gas by halftime. Taft was the quicker team in the 2nd half and overcame a 15 point deficit from the 1st half. The Bombers hung tough but just couldn’t get a stop in the 2nd half to gain control again. Scoring for the Bombers were Jackson Hughes-13, Alex Gull-9, Jacob Hillan-7, Alex Kosiba-4, Noah Bierma-3 , and Eli Hickman-2. The Bombers record now stands at 12-4 with their next game on Thursday night at Rensselaer.
The Bomber “B” team also played Tuesday night and were defeated by a score of 24-21. Overall they came out and played a pretty good game for not having played in 2 weeks. They hung tough the whole way , but they were also unable to get over the hump in the 2nd half. Scoring for the Bombers were Eli Kosiba-6, Stephan Duncan-5, Jarret Riegle-3, Keagan Todd, Preston Shuey, Camden Chapman all had 2, and Matt McGowan -1. Their record now stands at 4-3 and they also play Thursday at home against Twin Lakes.
