Cameron’s Westbrook headed to AFC Championship Game

Jacksonville built what was an early 21-0 lead over Pittsburgh in this past week’s AFC divisional round game, and held on late for a 44-42 win to secure a spot in the AFC championship this week versus New England. The Steelers, behind Ben Roethlisberger’s 469 yards passing, had the more eye-popping stats, but it is the Jaguars moving on. Cameron’s Dede Westbrook had one catch for 8 yards, but was targeted 3 times. In total, 10 different receivers recorded catches for Jacksonville in the game. Game time for the AFC championship on Sunday is set for 2:05 on CBS.

The Lady Yoe finished with a dominating 12-0 scoring advantage in the tournament, and that impressed coach Laura Dickson more than anything.


“I was very excited that we went undefeated at the tournament,” said Dickson. “I think the most impressive thing, though, was that we shut-out all of our opponents. This was a great confidence builder for our team. I also had some younger players get some playing time, and so it was encouraging to see what the future holds.”


Cameron had multiple players contribute offensively, and it was a complete effort all around.


Maddi Kenney (3), Houston Harris (2), Wendy Sanchez (2), Shelby Lara (1), Tiffany Bolivar (1), Cailynne Hoelscher (1), Faith Kistler (1), Nayeli Galvan (1) all recorded goals over the weekend.  


For the boys, Ulices Cardona and Diego Martinez each had a pair of goals in the 5-0 shutout over Caldwell.
