Battle Creek’s full court pressure defense contributed to 25 Norfolk Catholic turnovers, and also hurried the Knights’ shooting, as the Bravettes improved to 7-3 on the season with a 63-45 win Friday night at the Norfolk Catholic Activities Center.

The winless Warriors (0-5), a young squad with just five seniors and several of their 14 freshmen seeing action, hung with 4-1 Norfolk Catholic for awhile—trailing just 14-3 after one quarter—but the Knights’ running game, field position, and defense all combined for a 49-9 Norfolk Catholic win.

Wayne improved to 10-5 on the season by earning a three-set sweep over Norfolk Catholic Tuesday evening, but the match was every bit as competitive as the 25-20, 25-22, 25-18 scores would suggest.
