In the boys’ game, the Bluebirds couldn’t overcome a slow start, losing to Wakefield 46-40.

The Bombers took at 10-3 lead at the end of the first quarter, and held on throughout the game. Goessel gained momentum in the fourth quarter, but not in enough time to complete a comeback.

Zack Wiens led the Bluebirds in scoring with 13.
