The Bombers traveled to Valpo for the Ben Franklin Tourney on Saturday. They faced Ben Franklin in the 1st game! Ben Franklin came out very aggressive from the start and man-handled the Bombers by a score of 62–15. There was nothing positive to take out of this game. From start to finish, Ben Franklin was in control. Scoring for the Bombers was Brody Chamness 7 pts., and Tate Drone, Andrew Luzzader, Kelton Hesson, and Juan Valencia all had 2 pts.
In the consolation game, the Bombers played Plymouth! The Bombers played a lot better this game and only trailed by 6 pts going into the 4th quarter. Plymouth went on a 8 -0 run at the start of the period and the Bombers basically ran out of energy and fell by a score of 54– 37. They did a nice job of playing against Plymouths press but ran out of gas at the end. Very happy that they came out and gave a better showing than in the 1st game. Scoring for the Bombers was Tate Drone 13 pts, Brody Chamness 13 pts, Kelton Hesson 5 pts, Juan Valencia 3 pts, and Ty Cady 2 pts. The Bombers next play at Winamac on Monday night.
