Norwich girls basketball dominate Windsor in season opener

NORWICH - In their first game of the season on Wednesday, December 2, the Norwich girls’ varsity basketball team hosted Windsor. The Purple Tornado would flatten Windsor on their way to victory in their season opener 78-22.

The first quarter of the game ended with Norwich up 29-4 over the Black Knights. Norwich’s swarming defense kept Windsor away from the basket and any rebounds that may have given the visitors an edge. Norwich’s offense wouldn’t let up in the first half and only got stronger in the second. “This was a really good win,” said Norwich coach Josh Bennett. “You never want to come out sloppy in your first game, I thought that we looked really sharp.”

In the second half Norwich would continue their dominance against Windsor, only allowing five points to be scored all game. “The second half we really picked up our defense,” Bennett said. “I couldn’t pick just one or two girls who played well on D. I thought we rotated really well and everybody hustled in rotation.”

Norwich was led by senior Shelby Benjamin who would earn 13 points over the course of the game. Benjamin’s 13 combined with freshman newcomer Taylor Hansen’s 12 was enough to beat the Black Nights scoring total on their own.

The Norwich girls look to stay undefeated when they travel to Chenango Valley on Wednesday, December 9 to face the Warriors.
