Girls Basketball; Indians, Bengals Stay Perfect


As the 2017-18 basketball schedule approaches it’s midway point two girls teams have yet to be bested, with Tamarac and Cambridge sporting undefeated league marks.  Both posted easy wins Wednesday night, part of a full slate in the Wasaren, but come Friday night one team will suffer their first league loss when the Bengals and Indians get together in Clum’s Corners.
