Nelson’s Junior Bombers on a hot streak

The L.V. Rogers junior boys basketball team continued their winning ways earlier this week

The L.V. Rogers junior boys basketball team continued their winning ways earlier this week by knocking off the Mt. Sentinel Wildcats 57-28 Wednesday night at the local high school.

The victory was the second in as many nights as the boys defeated Trail’s J.L. Crowe 41-35 Tuesday in Trail in a hard fought league game.

The pair of wins against area rivals comes during a hot month for the hoops squad.

Last weekend the locals captured the J.L. Crowe Invitational by knocking off Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries 45-6, Grand Forks 71-16, host JL Crowe 61-35 and Osoyoos 42-33 in a dramatic and well-played final.

The junior Bombers have a 9-0 record in West Kootenay league action this season and are currently on a seven game winning streak.

The team’s next action will be on January 27-28 when they travel to the junction for the Mt. Sentinel Invitational tournament. The next weekend the squad plays host at the Bomber Invitational at The Hangar.
