Kicking off action in the Northwestern 3A/4A, rivals Fred T. Foard and St. Stephens squared off on the wrestling mat Tuesday.
They didnâ€™t disappoint.
After 13-of-14 matches wrestled, a mere point separated the teams â€” 36-35.
Foardâ€™s Michael Vincent and St. Stephensâ€™ Chris Hunt tangled at 126 pounds with the winner helping his team claim the match.
Knowing what was at stake, Vincent pinned Hunt, lifting the Tigers to their 21st victory of the season.
Brooke Robinson scored 18 and Chelsea Turner added 15 points, leading Fred T. Foard to its second conference win of the season against St. Stephens on Tuesday.
The Lady Tigers (9-7, 2-3) led 22-11 at the half and outscored St. Stephens 32-20 in the second half.
Keyona Hicks led the Lady Indians (3-12, 0-4) with 12 points.
Bandys 63, South Iredell 36
The Lady Trojans continued their impressive roll this season with their 15th win of the season against the Lady Vikings.
CHARLOTTE â€” Rookie Chandler Parsons scored 20 points and Kevin Martin added 17 points and the Houston Rockets defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 82-70 Tuesday night to snap a four-game losing streak.
Jordan Hill had a double-double for the Rockets off the bench with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
The Rockets (3-6) broke open a tight game in the third quarter and the poor-shooting Bobcats could never put together a big run.
