NORWICH- In recent memory the battles between the boys basketball teams of the Norwich Purple Tornado and the Chenango Valley Warriors have been local lore and the subject of conversation for years. Highlighted by the erasing of 20 point deficits in two separate Section IV finales, these games for those who follow the Tornado faithfully have been nothing but incredible.

And once again, the Tornado achieved victory over the Warriors by a score of 58-43. However, the score can be deceiving and having mastered the art of the perfect comeback against Chenango Valley, the Tornado pulled off, yet another incredible win.
