Bombers prepare to battle Trail

JL Crowe will pay a visit to Nelson on Wednesday night. Games starts at 5:30 p.m.

The L.V. Rogers senior boys basketball team has been on a roll these past few weeks.

The local squad has enjoyed two straight winning weekends and is now preparing to host Trail’s J.L. Crowe secondary Wednesday night tonight at 5:30 p.m. in Nelson.

The local squad will in all likelihood be representing the Kootenay region in the Provincial AAA high school basketball championships set for mid-March.

Last weekend, the Bombers squad travelled to Fernie to participate in a tournament.

The locals cruised to the tourney title by knocking off Kimberley in the quarterfinal, Mount Sentinel in the semifinals and then handing the host Fernie squad a 66-48 loss in the final.

According to head coach Jeremy Phelan the team played well, especially tournament MVP Bjorn Morris.

Two weeks ago, the Bombers enjoyed another perfect weekend.

The locals were in South Slocan taking  part in the Mount Sentinel High School Boy’s Basketball Playday.

LVR opened the tourney by battling the host Wildcats and handing them a 61-41 loss. In their second game, LVR took on Creston’s Prince Charles Comets and beat them 77-48 to win the title.
