It’s now or never for the L.V. Rogers Bombers.

LVR is looking for its 15th straight trip to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer Championship Wednesday in Cranbrook when the Bombers meet the Mt Baker Wild.

The one-game showdown determines the Kootenay rep at the 16-team provincial tournament. In the lone meeting this season between the two teams, Baker won 1-0.

LVR finished second in the Wild tournament to go with a gold medal finish at Summerland and a 12-th place result in Chilliwack.

However, LVR was missing a handful of players for the Wild tournament contest as Sean Hickson, Luis Loeschnik, Bruno Moro and Conrad Lanaway failed to make the trip.

The Bombers, finishing 12th out of the 16 teams in 2009, expect to have a full roster when the teams hook up for a 1 p.m. MDT Wednesday.

SIDELINES: Bomber head coach Keith Williams is looking for his tenth trip to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Championships. Former coaches Mike Sedlbauer and Hogue Tyler took LVR to the championship tournament for five consecutive years before Williams assume the helm.
