NORWICH - Hosting Proctor high school, the Norwich girls varsity basketball team got another win on Thursday, December 17. The Purple Tornado would win 51-44.
Coming out of the gates Norwich seemed a little slow. The Norwich girls only scored three points in the opening eight minutes to Proctor’s 11 and fell into a hole that they needed to dig themselves out of. In the second quarter they did this on the shoulders of Kassidy Seary and Meghan Komendarek. Both girls five points in Norwich’s 13 point quarter.
The second half is where Norwich began to pick up some momentum. After starting the half tied at 16 each, Norwich went on to score another 13 in the third and held Proctor to 11 to increase their lead to two points going into the final minutes of the game. The Purple Tornado would hold on and stave off a Proctor comeback for the win.
