Windsor 33, Norwich 31

WINDSOR – Windsor halted Norwich’s five-game winning streak as a last-second shot by the Purple to tie the game was off the mark.

Norwich produced its second-lowest scoring output of the season and had quarters where it netted just two and six points. “We have a tough time with teams that play good halfcourt man-to-man defense,” said Norwich coach Bob Branham. “They’re a physical team, and we didn’t get a lot of good looks at the basket. We had to rush a lot of shots at the end of the shot clock.”



Norwich’s leading scorers, Alicia Testani and Minda Moore, combined for just 10 points, about 15 points below their season averages. Kala Haltner finished with nine markers to pace NHS (5-2).

Sherburne-Earlville 64, Poland 44

SHERBURNE – The Marauders adjusted nicely in the absence of starters Erin Dowdall and Katelin Fitzpatrick to win a non-league matchup Thursday.

Courtney Kurtz scored a game-high 19 points for S-E (5-4), and Adrienne Cross netted 15 points and grabbed 10 boards. “Our sophomores stepped right in tonight and they all did some nice things,” said S-E coach Jeff Barry. “They will have to help us if we want to pick it up down the stretch.”

Poland: Kayla Miller, 2 0-1-4; B. Reddington, 3 1-3-8; Ma. Hampbell, 0 1-2-1; Alyssa Carcone, 4 0-0-8; Steph Young, 6 3-4-15; Karla Coshland, 0; Melissa Chabual, 0; Sam Reddington, 2 2-3-6; A.M. Mardoff, 0; Sara Kerr, 1 0-0-2. Totals: 18 7-13-44.
