The Bloomer Blackhawks boys basketball team came up short a couple of baskets in a pair of games last week, while their game against Colfax on Saturday, Jan. 18 was rescheduled to Monday, Jan. 20 due to the weather.

On Monday, Jan. 13 at home the Blackhawks got out scored by Thorp by two points in the first half, 20-22, and three points in the second half, 19-22, to lose by five. Then on Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Ladysmith the boys got down by five in the first half, 26-31 and, although they outscored the Lumberjacks in the second half, 19-18, it wasn’t enough and Ladysmith came out on top 49-45.
