The L.V. Rogers junior girls basketball team brought home some hardware over the weekend.

The Bombers captured first place with a 48-42 overtime win over Selkirk Secondary to finish 3-0 at a tournament hosted by David Thompson Secondary in Invermere on Friday and Saturday.

The Bombers trailed with Selkirk by one with eight seconds left when Bryce Winters was fouled. She missed her first free throw but hit the second, sending the game to extra time. The team then jumped ahead in OT for the victory.

L.V. Rogers also defeated Laurie Middle School 21-19 in their first game and David Thompson 39-38 in the second.

Next action for the junior and senior girls is Tuesday at J.L. Crowe.

The 6-0 senior girls host an eight-team tournament this weekend. Schools from Osoyoos, Rutland, Fernie, and Invermere are expected along with other West Kootenay schools.

The senior boys basketball team was also in action over the weekend. They finished fourth at a home tournament with two wins against Nakusp and Trail and losses to Rutland and Creston.
