Eskomos Fall to Bombers
Section Final Rematch Goes to Road Team
The Esko boys basketball team couldn’t recover from a slow start, Friday.
The Barnum Bombers led 14-10 at the half, and extended the lead with rebounding and clutch shooting in the second half.
With 7 minutes left in the game, Esko senior Jaxson Turner tried to spark his team with a thunderous jam on the baseline, that put them within 3 at 26-23.
The Bombers immediately slammed the door, though.
Following Turner’s dunk, Mason Agurkis and Reece Parks hit back-to-back three pointers, stretching lead back to 9.
The Eskomos could not recover after that, as the teams traded baskets for a 45-36 final.
