Cannon Falls held a 10-point lead for much of the second half but was unable to hold on as Tri-City United left Cannon Falls with a 49-46 win Tuesday.
“Defensively, they shut us down and we had a hard time scoring,” Cannon Falls head coach Josh Davisson said, “and they kind of chipped away and they took the lead on a 3-pointer from Andrew Feddema with about 1 minute, 15 seconds to go and we weren’t able to convert.”
Davisson said the Bombers had a good look at a 3-pointer to tie the game at the end but it didn’t fall. Cannon Falls led 31-22 at halftime.
Brock Peterson scored 13 points to lead the Bombers (2-4), Jordan Lundell had 10 points and Tanner Jackson added seven points in the loss. Cannon Falls was just 1 of 5 from the free-throw line.
Tri-City United was led by Pat Lloyd's 10 points. Alex Turgeon had nine points and Jordan Trnka finished with seven points. Tri-City United was 3-for-6 from the free-throw line.
The Bombers play their first Hiawatha Valley League Blue Division game Friday on the road against Lake City.
