"We expected a war and we got a war," Bengals Head Coach Patrick Brunner said in a post-game interview. "Our guys really played well in the third quarter."

Toppin and Barrow dished out a game-high 13 points each. Toppin also recorded a game-high 10 rebounds.

Mike Ramos and Francis Lorenzo were also major contributors on offense. Ramos gave the home team 11 points and three rebounds and another nine points and three rebounds came from Lorenzo.

Richie Guillaume contributed eight points and six rebounds.

As they move further into the tournament, the Bengals will focus on one game at a time in an effort to get as far as possible.

"We take one game at a time," Brunner told TAPinto Bloomfield. "All we know is someone has to come into our gym and beat us." 

The Bengals will take on the Rams on Friday night. The boys will tip off at Bloomfield High School at 7 PM.
