The Northfield 6th grade girls fell to Maconaquah 34-28 Monday.
Sometimes you win games and sometimes you learn from games! The 6th grade Lady Norse learned a lot from tonight’s game and will be better for it! Maconaquah played a tough half court trap defense that our girls hadn’t seen before. At the end of the first half the Lady Norse trailed 10 -19. Our girls started to understand what they needed to do, in order to be effective against the trapping defense in the 2nd half. The Lady Norse made a great come back in the 2nd half and got within one late in the 4th quarter. We won that half 18-15, but still came up short.
Faith Krom and Laney Haupert led the way with 6 pts each. Nichole Fisher, Millie Higgins, and Addi Sorg all added 4. Claire Brainard & Emma Wilson rounded out the scoring column with a bucket each.
The “5th quarter” ended in a tie at 10 -10. Claire Brainard led the team with 6 points and Emma Wilson had 4!
