Early this season, poor shooting was the culprit in an 0-3 start for the Cannon Falls boys basketball team.
But since the holidays, the Bombers have turned their fortunes on offense, picking up a 58-42 Hiawatha Valley League Blue division win Friday at home against Goodhue.
“We had a couple of examples of poor shooting, especially against Ellsworth and Lake City,” said Cannon Falls head coach Josh Davisson. “The guys have stuck with it and start to trust themselves and each other.”
Leading the offensive charge was Jordan Lundell, who shot 6 of 10 from 3-point range to finish with 24 points. Brock Peterson added 11 points for the Bombers, who led 28-21 at halftime.
“Defensively, I thought we played pretty well,” said Goodhue head coach Tony Poncelet. “But they got hot in the second half and Lundell hit some big shots for them.”
Pacing the Wildcats was Tyler Schumacher, who scored 12 points. Tyson Dicke added six points, five rebounds and four blocks.
The Bombers (4-6, 1-1 HVL Blue) are back in action Tuesday at home against Lake City, and the Wildcats (4-6, 0-3 HVL Blue) host Lake City on Tuesday.
