GREENE – No. 11 (Class 2A) North Butler withstood a faced-paced a physical West Fork team Friday to remain undefeated in the Corn Bowl and continue its hold on top of the conference standings.

The Bearcats used a rebounding edge and defense to hold off the Warhawks, 47-35, at home.

“That was a big game for us in the conference, if we lost that one, we’d be tied in the conference, but we got through it,” North Butler coach Jeff Lindell said. “The biggest issue was West Fork was trying to speed our tempo up and I just couldn’t get the girls to relax, calm down and take their time because when we did move the basketball we had good looks and scored."
