L.V. Rogers Bombers finish second in Osoyoos basketball tournament

The seniors boys team came undone late in the final

The L.V. Rogers senior boys basketball team took second place at the Desert Classic tournament in Osoyoos last weekend.

The Bombers were down three points at the half but faltered late in the final and lost 76-48 to No. 4-ranked Barriere Secondary.

LVR had been dominant up to the final.

The team clobbered Ashcroft’s Desert Sands 85-42 in the quarter-final thanks to a 20-point effort by Moss Caney, who sunk six three-pointers.

Matti Erickson had 19 points and Isaac Vissers added 10 in the semifinal for LVR, who routed Vernon’s W.L. Seaton Secondary 72-56. Their coaches said it was the team’s best all-around game of the season.

The Bombers will host Senior Night on Feb. 26 at 5:30 p.m. against the Grand Forks Wolves, during which they’ll celebrate their graduating players in their last home game at the LVR Hangar.
