Bearcats, Lady Bearcats see seasons end in 2nd round of District

Posted on Friday, February 24, 2017 at 11:15 am

Hermann’s Matt Wade goes up for a shot in a game earlier this season. On Thursday night, Wade scored 20 in the Bearcats’ loss to Blair Oaks.

The second round was not kind to the Bearcats — either of the Bearcats, to be exact.

The Varsity boys and girls teams feel out of post-season play this week in the second round of the Class 3 District 9 Tournament, hosted by Blair Oaks High School.

The Lady Bearcats fell hard in their contest Wednesday night with the St. James Lady Tigers, 57-31, as the top Hermann scorers were literally shut out by the 26-0 Tigers.

On Thursday night, the Bearcats enjoyed a narrow lead over Blair Oaks for much of the game, only to see a 21-point surge by host Blair Oaks in the 4th quarter to claim the 63-52 victory and the right to move on toward the District title.
