Bombers crush Castlegar in hoops action

The L.V. Rogers Bombers senior boys basketball squad travelled to Castlegar and dominated the Stanley Humphries Secondary team.

The Bombers latest contest, really wasn’t much of a contest at all.

The L.V. Rogers Bombers senior boys basketball squad travelled to Castlegar and dominated the  Stanley Humphries Secondary team, thumping their rivals 74-37 last week.

Despite the lopsided victory, LVR head coach Jeremy Phelan wasn’t overjoyed by his team’s performance.

“They played better in the second half and not great in the first half,” he said.

It was close in the first part of the game as the Bombers “played down” to their opponents level.

“We clamped down in the second half a bit more,” explained the coach.

Because of the huge difference between the squads, Phelan said he was able to get each player on the hard court at one point or another.

“Everybody got minutes,” he said.

While he acknowledge that it can be tough to get motivated in a game as lopsided as this one, his players have to be more focused.

“What I want to do in a game like this is to get to our offence, work on our systems and play good defence. Build good habits.”

The Bombers now have a few weeks off for Christmas before seeing more game action.

LVR will be hosting Castlegar on January 14 at 6:30 p.m., followed by a road contest on January 15 at J.L. Crowe in Trail.

On February 19, the locals play host to J.L. Crowe.
