Even the long break couldnâ€™t slow down the Lady Trojans.
Bandys got 19 points, 13 steals and 6 assists from freshman Madi Story on their way to a Catawba 2A win over Bunker Hill on Tuesday.
The game was the first for Bandys since their Jan. 7 game against Maiden.
Coach Beth Queen was aware of the time off.
â€śI was really concerned,â€ť Queen said. â€śAny time you take nine to 10 days and havenâ€™t played, that is in the back of your mind. This game was like the last game at Maiden, where the game time is moved up and everything is out of routine.â€ť
The Bears made their free throws when they mattered the most.
Despite making 8-of-21 free throws in the first half, Bunker Hill connected on 8 of 12 attempts in the fourth quarter to pick up the Catawba Valley 2A win over Bandys.
â€śWe struggled tonight,â€ť said Bunker Hill coach Matt Wilkinson. â€śFree throw shooting has really been one of our strengths this year. I felt like we have won several ball games because of our consistency at the free throw line. I think part of that concentration. I felt like we had a lack of concentration all night long.â€ť
