Already off to a perfect start to its season, the Bandys girls soccer team notched its fourth win of the season Friday.
Behind a pair of assists by junior Allie Santos and two goals by senior Cassidy Winchester, the Lady Trojans improved to 4-0 overall with a 5-0 victory against Highland Tech.
â€śThe girls played well,â€ť said Bandys coach Cliff Mayer. â€śI think this is by far our best game this season. Weâ€™re 4-0 and ranked 11th in the state. Maybe with this win, weâ€™ll move up. Iâ€™ll know on Monday. Weâ€™re doing really good.â€ť
Fred T. Foard knocked off the defending NWC softball champions, Alexander Central, in impressive fashion, scoring nine of their runs in the final two innings to win 9-1.
The Lady Cougars took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning behind an RBI single from Chelsea Wilkinson.
Ashley Oliver helped pace the late Foard run, scoring three RBIs (two in the fifth and one in the sixth).
Mackenzie Dziendziel and Addie Bolick also drove in two RBIs each, while Rebecca Rowe tacked on an RBI of her own.
CHARLOTTE â€” Kris Humphries had 20 points and 15 rebounds and the New Jersey Nets overcame an injury to Deron Williams to defeat the Charlotte Bobcats 83-74 Friday night.

Williams, who scored a career-high and franchise-record 57 points on this same floor Sunday night against the Bobcats, left in the second quarter with a sore right calf and did not return. He finished with seven points and three assists.
