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.”
