ELLSWORTH --- The Bearcats held on to a 1-point margin to defeat the Knights of Sacred Heart 51-50 in a tense, emotion-charged North Central Activities Association game in Ellsworth.

A big factor in the win were the fans in the stands, that got into the game and urged the boys on for the win in the fourth quarter.

The Lady ‘Cats won their fourth game of the season, defeating a small but plucky Lady Knight team by a score of  43-31. Freshman Connor Davis did a good job under the rim and scored the baskets when the Lady ‘Cats needed them in the third quarter of play.

CLAFLIN -- The Oilers humbled Victoria by a score of 58-37 in Claflin.

The Lady O’s had no trouble dispatching the Lady Knights, winning by a lopsided score of 49-13.

WILSON --- The Dragons struggled, but came back from behind to defeat the Leopards of Lincoln 63-60. The Leopards held Jake Stoppel to just seven points in the first half, but the senior center managed to leave the court with a 32-point game.

In an upset, the Lady Leopards defeated the Lady Dragons 50-47, handing the girls their second loss at home in just two games.

A factor in the win for Lincoln was the early loss of Shania Steinike, the sophomore guard and ball-handler who twisted an ankle early in the contest and did not see much playing time.
