Barnum Bomber Kaitlyn Skutevik snakes around the Mercuries defense to score.

The Barnum Lady Bombers hit the hardwood in a battle with the Mercuries of McGregor December 12.

The Bombers' Kaitlyn Skutevik landed the first shot of the game. The Mercuries showed no fear as they also found the basket to keep the first half relatively close.

Soon, though, the Bombers found the range for the long ball and started dropping the three-pointers. Mallory Agurkis landed two threes, while Alina Skutevik, Liz Carlson and Bailey Wheeler all added threes.

The Mercuries did a nice job of holding Bomber Emily Miletich to only four points in the first half. Kaitlyn Skutevik also scored only four points in the first half, but did a nice job defensively. Britney Mike came off the bench to add three points. Wheeler was the high scorer for the Bombers with nine points, giving the Bombers a 32-19 lead into halftime.

The second half had Miletich finding her rhythm to begin her scoring onslaught. Agurkis landed another pair of threes to end her night with 12 points. Wheeler and Miletich also ended the night with 12 points. Kaitlyn Skutevik ended the night with six points, while her sister, Alina Skutevik, added three points. Liz Carlson had seven points while Mike had three.

The Bombers took the 55-41 win over the Mercuries.
