Abrosimoff powers Mt. Sentinel past LVR Junior Bombers
For the second time in four days the Mount Sentinel Wildcats beat up on their district rivals from L.V. Rogers on the basketball court.
Aaron Abrosimoff scored a game high 18 points, including 10 in the opening quarter, to spark the Wildcats to a 44-32 West Kootenay High School Junior Boy’s Basketball victory Wednesday at the South Slocan School.
Abrosimoff, who scored 11 points in a weekend victory during the Stanley Humphries Rockers Junior Boy’s Tournament, continued to torch the Bombers with his slick play in the post.
Bombers had no answer as the host Cats held period leads of 16-5 and 26-9 at the half.
At one stage in the second half Mount Sentinel led by as many as 24 points before the Junior Bombers applied a full-court press to cut the margin to eight points late in the game.
Kie Miller had 14 for Mount Sentinel while Brandon Sookeroff added eight points.
Replying for LVR were Jack Roberts with nine, Dyllan Dixon scored seven and Thomas Baxter, Josh Jolicoeur and Brock Dixon each had four.
