BLUE HILL — One of Saturday's marquee matchups paired Class C-2 No. 6 and unbeaten St. Cecilia against 3-0 Blue Hill.
The Hawkettes defense flexed its muscle in a 45-32 victory.
"It was two good teams battling here in central Nebraska. I think the defense made us struggle a little bit, so tip of the hat to them. But I thought our defense ultimately won the game," said STC head coach Jahn Kile.
