Washington scores 27, 33 in wins over West Nassau, Terry Parker

The BCHS Lady Wildcats captured a pair of wins this week on the hard court, defeating West Nassau 71-61 on December 6, and the next night by defeating district foe Terry Parker.

The game was closer than the score indicates as BCHS ran out to a 6-point edge in the first period and then held the Lady Warriors at arm’s length. Both teams had dominant scorers with West Nassau’s Humphries and BCHS freshman Delicia Washington each racking up 27 points.

But as the top scorers cancelled each other out, it was the strong offensive play of Shanice Paige and the inside game of Candace Clack that made the difference. Paige was particularly strong in the second period, throwing in 12 of her 25 points. Clack had a strong first half as well scoring 9 of her 11 points in the first two periods.

Wildcats end playoff run with 44-23 loss to Kenny

Going into last Friday night’s football game between the Wildcats and the Bishop Kenny Crusaders both teams knew a very simple fact. One of them was going to make history.

Neither team had progressed beyond the second round of the state playoffs and somebody was going to be hosting a third-round game against Tallahassee Godby. The question was who would be playing this Friday night and who would be sitting at home thinking of what might have been.

In the end it was Bishop Kenny that would avenge a district championship loss to the Wildcats three weeks ago with an emphatic 44-23 victory.

Going into the game, the Cats were certain of one thing – to beat Kenny you had to stop their vaunted passing game. That was a given, and they prepared to do just that.

For the first time all season, the Wildcats started the game with three down linemen, daring the Crusaders to run the ball. The added linebacker was to provide double coverage support on UF recruit Ahmad Fulwood and Mo Tapper, who had hurt the Wildcats with his receptions in the district game.
