The Barnum Bombers continued to roll over the competition as they hosted the Agates of Two Harbors March 3.

From the get-go, the Bombers showed no mercy. The duo of Daniel Gilchrist and Reece Parks land three-pointer after three-pointer - Gilchrist landing three and Parks landing two. Kyle Kielty also got into the three game as he landed one long bomb in the first half. Sam Goodwin made his presence felt as he positioned himself under the basket and scored four points. Gilchrist, Kielty and Parks also added 10 extra points to the score by driving into the basket for the hard-fought basket.

The Bombers ran into half-time with a 34-21 lead.

The second half had the Bombers nearly shutting down the Agates' scoring, only allowing them 14 second half points. The Bombers, however, continued their scoring onslaught as they put up an additional 33 points, many from normally quiet players. Colton Ziegler scored five second half points, while Alex Wheeler and Braeden Hlavka both came off the bench to land three-point bombs. Tyler Nynas and Quinn Casey found room inside to score two points apiece, while Gilchrist continued his outside range, landing an additional two three-pointers, along with an inside basket. Parks was relatively quiet in the second half, scoring only two additional points. Goodwin powered through with eight additional points from below the basket.

The Bombers took the 67-35 win over the Agates.
