BROOKSVILLE - Central needed just three games to down local rival Hernando 25-20, 25-14, 25-21 Wednesday in the Bears' gym.

Central moved to 4-2 overall and 2-0 in Hernando County Athletic Conference play. Hernando dropped to 4-5 and 2-1.

In Game 1, Nikki Weaver slammed a kill to wrap up scoring. Kristen Wimer had four kills for Central in the game, while Weaver had three kills and a block. McKenzie Roberts had six straight serves late in the game, helping Central to a 24-18 lead.

Sara Grotz had eight straight service points in Game 2 to lead the Bears.

Noemi Rivera had six service points and two kills in the final game.

"The girls were swinging really well. Kristen Wimer hit well in the first game," Central coach Vicki Weaver said.

"These two teams are very evenly matched," Hernando coach Dena Frye said. "Unfortunately during the second game, we just handed them about 12 points. They just outsmarted us.

"We don't have a go-to person. Weaver is their go-to person. Weaver did a great job on back row."
