Game Recap

Rensselaer was able to travel to Lafayette Jeff on Tuesday. Lafayette Jeff came away with a 70-53 victory over the Bombers. However, the final score was spread out quite a bit further than the game felt like. At the end of the first half, the score was 25-24, with Rensselaer controlling most of 2nd quarter.

Lafayette Jeff came out of the second half and the Bombers did not respond well. The Bombers were outscored 45-29 in the second half alone. Rensselaer Central had too many turnovers and gave up too many offensive rebounds to be able to keep the game close throughout.

Jaylen Gilbert finished the game with 14 points. Grant Myers was able to get going in second half and finished with 12 points. Landon Balch tallied 11 points.

Next game for the Bombers is Friday, which is Senior Night against Winamac.

Sectionals are next week, with Rensselaer playing at 6pm on March 3rd.
