Windsor 52, Norwich 40

NORWICH – Norwich was unable to overcome Windsor’s fast start in which it built a 15-point lead in Saturday’s matchup.

It was the second straight contest the Tornado fell behind by double digits. The Black Knights led 23-8 at the first turn that included a 12-0 start to the contest.

Anne Buchert and Rachael Lamantia had eight points apiece in the first quarter to pace the Black Knights.

The Tornado were as close as 26-18 before Windsor scored the final six points of the half. Krissie Collier had nine points for the Tornado. “They usually don’t make too many threes, but they made four in this game,” said Norwich coach Krista Porter. “We were consistent with our scoring throughout the game, but just couldn’t make a run.”

Sierra French made 3-for-4 from the foul line in the fourth quarter to pad the advantage. “This was a win we hoped to get, but after the first half we were a little concerned,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson. “In the second half, we came out and shot it well, passed it well, and didn’t turn it over.”
