Cannon Falls had a chance against Christ’s Household of Faith Saturday in Cannon Falls.
The game was tied at 40-40 with about six minutes remaining but CHOF took over from that point on, going on a 16-2 run to secure a 56-42 victory.
The Bombers finished with 30 turnovers, many coming in the final six minutes.
“It was pretty much in crunch time,” Cannon Falls head coach Eric Mace said. “Most of that was self-inflicted on our part. They didn’t change anything really. … Just reverting back to those really young mistakes.”
Zoe Piepkorn scored a game-high 22 points for CHOF, 16 coming in the first half. Kathleen Piepkorn had 19 points. CHOF led 27-25 at halftime.
“One steal layup and four free throws in the second half was all she got,” Mace said of Zoe Piepkorn. “In the second half, her sister (Kathleen) stepped up and starting making some shots.”
Courtney Woodcock led the Bombers (0-8) with 13 points and also provided six rebounds and three assists. Grace Rutter contributed five points and 13 rebounds. Cannon Falls shot just 11 of 23 from the free-throw line.
The Bombers host Lake City Friday.
