The Bombers of Barnum played host to the Bombers of Braham in a match-up that always excites the crowd on February 27. The boys of Barnum would come out and show Braham that they would not hold anything back, as Barnum started a strong run on the boys from Braham. Barnum carried out multiple points of attack as Tyler Nynas would pound in 10 points in the first half. Kyle Kielty pushed into the Braham defense for seven first half points. Sam Goodwin stood strong under the basket for five points in the first half. Braeden Hlavka would land a long ball for three points. Drake Weets drove the basket for two first half points. Barnum went into halftime with a 28-17 point lead over Braham.

In the second half, Barnum continued to attack Braham as Kielty found room to score all over the floor driving the lane, hitting the long ball and going to the free throw line giving him a game total of 21 points. Nynas would do most of his work from the free throw line giving him 15 game points. Goodwin also scored from the free throw line and ended the night with 12 points. Hlavka and Weets finished their night with five points apiece. Anthony Robinson came off the bench for three points from long range. Barnum Bombers prevailed over the Braham Bombers 61-47.

For the final game of the regular season, the Bombers headed to Two Harbors on March 2 to take on the Agates. Multiple players from the Bombers scored in the first half, but they would just squeak by the Agates 27-25 in the first half.

By adding a strong presence in the second half, the Bombers ran away with the game, taking the 75-47 victory. Kyle Kielty led the Bomber scoring with 21 game points. Tyler Nynas would end the night with 16 points. Sam Goodwin contributed 14 points for the night. Alex Wheeler added nine game points after coming off the bench. Saul Myhre scored five points, while Drake Weets scored four points. Quinn Casey, Braeden Hlavka and Blaze Hurst all added two points.
