Reese Miletich drives in for the basket against the Patriots.

The 11-15 Lady Bombers started their section 7AA tournament run heading to Pequot Lakes to take on the 16-10 Patriots. The Patriots, coached by Bomber Alumni Katrina Moody (Newman), took the early lead and ran with it. The Patriots' Olivia Lane scored first with a nice drive to the basket around the Bombers' defense. The Bombers' Kendal Miletich landed a long bomb to put the Bombers on top, followed by Makenzee Schleret landing a nice 2-pointer to give the Bombers a 5-4 lead.

That, however, would be the last time the Bombers would see the lead as the Patriots made a 23-0 run on the Bombers to make the score 27-5. Bombers' Schleret landed a nice long shot for 3 points making the score 27-8. The Patriots again made a 10 point run on the Bombers to make the score 37-8. Bombers' Alli Marine found just enough room under the basket to score 2 points, while Reese Miletich would drive in for 2 points.

The Patriots would not be deterred as they also found room to score and took a 43-12 lead into halftime.

In the second half, the Bombers did not fair much better as the Patriots continued their pressure. Bombers' Mallory Agurkis got into the action in the second half putting up 11 points. Lacie O'Leary went to the line in the second half for a pair of free throws for 2 points. Alli Marine would again find room to shoot for a second pair of game points giving her 4 points on the night.

Schleret ended the night with 7 points, Kendal Miletich with 4, and Reese Miletich with 3. Danna Weets would be the last score for the Bombers giving her 2 points for the night.

The Patriots walked away with a 77-33 victory over the Bombers.
