NORWICH – The Norwich boys varsity basketball team will be heading to the Section IV class B finals after holding off a late half push from Seton Catholic Central to win 56-41.
This latest win over the Saints marks the second time during the 2015-2016 season Norwich has emerged victorious, the margin however, is not as great as some other wins Norwich usually boasts.
“We survived and advanced tonight. Our team wanted it is so much tonight that it was difficult for us to settle down,” said Norwich head coach Brian Collier.
Seton, who was fresh off an upset win over the number four seed Waverly this past Friday Feb. 19, came storming into the Norwich Tornado gym with an attitude that helped keep them in the game throughout.
Norwich would find themselves leading the Saints slightly at 13-10 going into the second quarter. This 3-point lead wouldn’t be captured by The Tornado until just over two-minutes left in the quarter when Norwich went on 6-point run to end the first quarter.
