Cannon Falls bounced back from its first loss in eight games with a 73-62 victory Tuesday over Winona Cotter in Cannon Falls.
Kenyon-Wanamingo ended the Bombers’ eight-game winning streak Friday and Cannon Falls responded with a big night offensively against the Ramblers.
Four players reached double figures for the Bombers (19-6, 10-2 HVL Blue) with Paul Rolfes leading the team with 15 points. Jordan Lundell finished with 14 points, Tanner Jackson scored 13 and Cedric Dicke added 10 points and 13 rebounds.
Cannon Falls got it done without having to rely upon Dicke’s offensive contributions, which came as an encouraging sign for head coach Josh Davisson.
“That’s a good sign for us to see that we’re able to do it without him,” Davisson said.
The Bombers have two regular season games remaining before beginning the Section 2AA playoffs, a field that includes last year’s defending section champion Waterville-Elysian-Morristown, currently ranked third in Class 2A and second-ranked St. Peter in the same subsection as Cannon Falls.
Jon Eichman led Cotter (10-15, 3-9 HVL Gold) with 17 points while Charlie Kretschmer scored 13 and Gus Cochran had 10.
The Bombers face La Crescent Thursday in Cannon Falls before facing eighth-ranked Kasson-Mantorville Saturday at 7 p.m. for the Hiawatha Valley League conference title in Kasson.
