Hey good evening everyone... back to bankers life... that's been the mission for central noble girls basketball since the season started way back in november... and they have steamrolled just about everyone that's been in their way... coming into today, 27-0.... only five of those games were decided by single digits..
Now just one win away from returning to the promise land...áááto the berry bowl in logansport we go..
A semi- state showdown between top ranked central noble... and #3 oak hill..
These two teams met in this same situation two years ago..
Golden eagles came out on top, so c-n looking for a little revenge in this game...áááand they got off to a good start... first possession of the game..
Sydney freeman eyes and flys from deep...ááávery next trip down... freeman showing you what she can do off the dribble..
Uses the window for two... cougars up three early...ááábut oak hill isn't going anywhere... not if adrianna trexler has anything to say about it..
Ties the game at 10..
C-n led by two after one..ááábut the second and third quarters were all oak hill..
Turnovers a big reason why..
Cougars had 18 on the day..
This one leads to a jenessa hasty layup... ááálater, it's taylor westgate doing work on the boards... finds a cutting hasty for the and-one..
Golden eagles up 15 midway through the third... ááábut the cougs would make a run... freeman... unpashed and unafraid..
From the parking lot...áááthen it's c-n forcing turnovers... freeman..
Easiest shot of the day for her... she had 16 on the day... deficit cut to eight...ááábut that's as close as they would get... trexler was terrific all afternoon... two of her game-high 20 to help put it away...áááas oak hill claims a spot in the 2-a title game... central noble's season comes to an end with a 53-36 loss... down to class 1a... in laporte... fourth ranked northfield taking on defending state champ marquette catholic with a trip to bankers life on the line...blazers are big... and they were using their size early... sophia nolan blocks ally keaffaber..
She takes it the other way to put marquette up two...norse responding on the other end... kyra kennedy baseline jumper for two puts northfield up..
Norse would trail 8-6 after one though... second quarter... marquette kept using that size... the pass inside to emma nolan... that's an easy bucket... she had 11..
Blazers up nine...but then the norse got hot... ariel dale rattles home the three from the corner...next possession... other corner... same result... another three ball from her... 9 of her team high 11 coming in the first half..
Cuts the lead to three..
Norse trailed by that margin at the break...the teams continued to trade buckets in the third... sophia nolan no on the first try... gets the second to go...other end... bank's open on saturdays in laporte for kyra kennedy...six of her eight coming in the third..
And northfield down just two after three...but marquette put the clamps down in the fourth... pass inside to sophia nolan for two of her game high 27... blazers allow just five points in the quarter..
They pull away to win 47-32 ending
