Bears advance to West 2A finals
GREENSBORO — A great defense was a key factor in Pisgah’s 57-45 victory over Bandys during the opening game of the West 2A Regionals played Wednesday at UNC- Greensboro’s Fleming Gymnasium.
The Bears will play again Saturday for the right to advance to the state championship.

Taking an early lead of 8-2 at the end of the first quarter, the Bears held the lead throughout the game, taking their biggest lead of 15 points with 5:20 seconds remaining in the game.
