Only 5 days removed from their exciting 2 point contest, the Bombers and Bison faced off for the 7th grade tournament championship Saturday at South Newton high school. The first half was back and forth as it looked like a set up for another contest to be decided in the final seconds, the Bison led 22-20 at half. The Bombers however came out red hot in the 3rd quarter and asserted themselves as the dominant team. Aggressive defense and superb shooting from the field allowed them to build a comfortable lead in the 3rd period.
Diego Hernandez-Reyes was outstanding in leading the Bombers with 15 points, Corbin Mathew added 11, Brayson Johns and Dalton Wilson each chipped in 5 points. On the defensive end Dillan Simmons seemed to be everywhere in disrupting Benton Central’s efforts.
The Bombers are now 3 and 1 this season, they will face Pioneer at home Monday at 5:00.
