For the second straight game the L.V. Rogers Bombers struggled to find points at the offensive end.

Maple Ridge Ramblers out scored LVR 20-10 in the second quarter to score a 52-35 win at the B.C. High School Boy’s AAA Basketball Championships Thursday in Langley.

Trailing 10-9 after one period, the Rambers took advantage of LVR turnovers to go on the run.

“Another grinder game,” said Bomber coach Jeremy Phelan.

“We played mostly well on defence but had a tough time on offence.”

Isaiah Kingdom led the Bombers in scoring with 12 points while Tobin Eberle added six and Bjorn Morris five.

LVR now meets McMath of Richmond in consolation action at 10 a.m. Friday.

Tupper scores 30 from downtown to dump LVR 59-37 at Triple-A Hoop Championships

Provincial jitters proved costly to the L.V. Rogers Bombers at the B.C. High School Boy’s AAA Basketball Championships in Langley.

Sir Charles Tupper turned costly turnovers into easy baskets en route to a 59-37 victory over the Bombers on Day one of the 16-team tournament Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre.

“We had a good first quarter . . . we were only down 15-12 and 27-16 at the half when (Sir Charles Tupper) just started hitting three’s and we shot ourselves in the foot with too many turnovers,” Bomber head coach Jeremy Phelan said from Langley.

Phelan said the Bombers, entering the tournament ranked 15th after disposing of J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks in the Kootenay Final, missed many easy shots around the basket that could have helped slow the Tupper momentum.

Tupper also was unstoppable from beyond the three-point arc, scoring 30 points from downtown.

Ethan Perkins led the Bombers scoring with 11 points while Bjorn Morris had seven.

Leo Zhou checked in with six points, Sida Wang five and Isaiah Kingdon had four.

LVR drops to the consolation round to meet the loser of the Isfeld/Maple Ridge contest Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
