Whitko out scored Northfield 37-24 in the first half.  For the Lady Norse,  it was the second game in a row that the second quarter point spread put them in a spot of playing catch up and forcing some things. Whitko out scored Northfield 21-12 in the second which put them up 37-24 at the half.

The second half was much better as Whitko out scored Northfield just 29-26 and played an even 12-12 in the fourth, as some shots that wouldn’t go down in the first half found the bottom of the bucket in the second.
