Purple Tornado Blow Away the Blue Devils 54-42
BINGHAMTON – On a damp and dreary night on January 18th, it was the perfect storm for a Tornado comeback as the Norwich varsity girls basketball team fought their way to a Southern Tier Athletic Conference victory at Chenango Forks.
Led in scoring by the dominating offensive production of senior Makenzie Maynard who recorded 24 points in the contest, half of which came from beyond the arc. Aiding Maynard in the scoring department was fellow senior Meghan Komendarek who shot 50 percent from the charity stripe on a productive 14 point outing.
The Tornado found themselves down after the first period of play by a score of 15-13, the ensuing second quarter proved to be the key to the game as the Tornado outscored the Blue Devils 13-5. The Norwich Defense wouldn’t stop there as they were able to chase off any Forks sharpshooters from the three-point line, while only allowing one Blue Devil player to reach double-digit scoring.
Forks falls to (8-6) on the year while the Purple Tornado advance to (10-3) on the season. The Tornado find themselves on top of their division as they play host to their next game at Norwich High School tonight January 20, at 7:45 p.m. against fellow divisional foe Windsor.
