CANNON FALLS – Both Cannon Falls and Hayfield fell into half-long struggles on Tuesday. Missed shots, turnovers and an inability to win loose-ball battles were hallmarks for both teams during their respective troubles.

Unfortunately for the Bombers, their issues came in the second half, which allowed the Vikings to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit to pick up the 44-40 road victory.
