North Bend Central Holds Off Wayne Rally for Fourth Straight Win

WAYNE – Class C1 #8 North Bend Central’s dominant performance in the paint gave them enough of a cushion to withstand a late Wayne run, beating the Blue Devils 46-42.

The Tigers outrebounded Wayne 44-19, taking advantage of a number of opportunities to build a 15-point lead in the second half.

But Wayne would come roaring back, thanks to the efforts of Kylie Hammer and Gabi Meyer, who brought Wayne within two late in the game.

But North Bend Central would clinch the game with, what else, a rebound – as Hailey Bang pulled down an offensive rebound after a missed free throw to help the Tigers win their fourth straight.

The loss for Wayne is their third to an opponent currently ranked in NCN’s top 10 rankings.
