Prep softball: BCS Panthers shock Hernando Christian

Keeping their ailing coach close to their heart, the Bradenton Christian Panthers stunned Hernando Christian Academy 7-1 during Thursday's Class 1A-District 8 final.

Hernando Christian entered the game 25-0 and defeated BCS twice during the regular season.

The Panthers (10-8) were playing without coach Gene Brown, who underwent emergency surgery Tuesday night. Brown is recovering at Blake Medical Center and was getting inning-by-inning updates via text message.

Brown's daughter, Rachel, went 4-for-4 with three singles, a triple and two RBIs.
