This time the Bombers did it with a win over the Liberty Eagles 54-38.

In the second semifinal game, Eureka’s Hornets buzzed by the Macomb Bombers by a score of 44-31. Eureka started red hot, making their first four shots (including two 3-pointers) and surged to a 12-4 lead and a 17-10 lead at the end of the first. The Hornets would never relinquish the lead in this contest. Hornets sophomore Tyler Heffren scored 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-7 from the 3-point
A back-and-forth affair that featured five lead changes highlighted the tournament’s first semifinal game, won by the Farmers of Farmington 45-43 over the Liberty Eagles. Liberty jumped out to a 19-10 lead with 3:27 left in the first half, but Farmington went on a 10-0 run to end the half, up 20-19.

The Lewistown Indians defeated the Pittsfield Saukees in the Native American inspired 5th place semifinal by a count of 47-43.

Lewistown started strong, leading 12-4 at the end of the first quarter (and eventually 17-6), but Pittsfield ended the second quarter on an 11-0 run to bring the score to a 17-17
