Bombers boys win two


Bomber Hunter Fetters fights through the Bulldogs defenders for two points.

The Barnum Bombers boys hosted the Carlton Bulldogs January 18.

The game started out slow as both teams put up shots without scoring, but this soon changed as the Bombers came alive and began scoring.

It was senior Hunter Fetters leading the scoring with 11 first half points. Daniel Gilchrist put up nine points as he came off the bench when Chris Carlson was out in the first half due to injury. Reece Parks drained the long ball from downtown for three points. Mason Agurkis and Drake Weets both added a pair of points, giving the Bombers a 29-15 lead going into halftime.

The second half, the Bombers came out dominating the court as Fetters continued to add to his point total with an additional 13 points. Weets also came out strong in the second half adding nine points. Carlson came back into the game in the second half to add five points. Both Gilchrist and Kyle Kielty added four points while Parks added two points and Agurkis went to the free-throw line for one point.

The Bombers walked away from the night with the 66-30 victory over the Bulldogs.

The Bombers next headed to Cromwell to take on the Cardinals January 22. This proved to be another game where the Bombers dominated the floor.

Carlson again led the scoring with 12 first-half points, followed by Fetters with 10 first-half points. Weets added four points, while the trio of Agurkis, Parks and Gilchrist all landed long shots from beyond the arc for three points. Finally Colton Zeigler came off the bench for two points, giving the Bombers a 37-16 first-half lead.

The second half was much the same as Carlson again added 10 points followed by Fetters with eight points. Gilchrist added four more points, while Weets hit the long bomb for three points. Kielty and Zeigler both come off the bench for a pair of points. Agurkis, Parks and Saul Myhre added two points apiece from the free-throw line.

The Bombers ended the night taking the 71-44 victory over the Cardinals.
