A basket in the final minute was enough to power Fernie to the narrow victory over LVR Goon Squad in the final of the Bomber High School Boy's 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament Saturday at the L.V. Rogers Gymnasium.

The tournament was the first event since COVID-19 derailed high school sports in the province.

Eleven teams from the host LVR, Grand Forks, Trail and Fernie competed in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

Trail Bulls finished third in the tournament with LVR II capturing the consolation draw.
