On Saturday the j8th grade Bombers traveled to Valpo to play in the Ben Franklin Tourney. They played Plymouth in the 1st game. The Bombers played pretty competitively but couldn’t keep pace with Plymouth. The Bombers came within 6 points of Plymouth early in the 4th quarter, but couldn’t get over the hump as they fell by a final score of 50-36. Scoring for the Bombers was Dalton Henry and Colby Chapman with 10 pts each, Brocc Beier 5 pts, Tommy Boles 4 pts, Carter Drone 3 pts, and Brew Cain and Tanner Odle both had 2.
In the 2nd game, the Bombers played Grimmer. Their height and strength made the Bombers work very hard to score, and just couldn’t keep up with their scoring. The final score was Grimmer winning in a 49-30 victory. Scoring for the Bombers was Dalton Henry and Colby Chapman both with 10 pts, Drew Cain 4 pts. The Bombers record is now 3-4.
