Norwich 47, Owego 45 (OT)

OWEGO – Norwich climbed back from a 13-point deficit in the first half to rally past Owego in overtime Wednesday night.

Hannah Runyon scored 13 of her 19 points after halftime to lead Norwich. In overtime, Tatyana Ithier’s three-pointer edged the Tornado in front, 45-44. After Owego hit a free throw, Runyon put back an offensive rebound for the game-winning points.

Runyon had nine offensive rebounds and 13 total boards for the game. Adrienne Sharpe also had nine rebounds.

“We had some cold shooting in the first half,” said Norwich coach Krista Porter. “We rebounded better and they didn’t shoot it as well.”

Brittany Rando scored 15 of her 25 in the first half. Porter slotted junior Sarah Bonnell as the defensive stopper on Rando, and Rando had just two field goals over the final two quarters and overtime.
