Northview girls just miss No. 1 Cougars

Wednesday, December 3, 2003

The Northview Knights threw a big scare into the Class 4A top-ranked Bloomington North Cougars on Monday night, falling 51-47.

Despite battling illness throughout their lineup and a big, early deficit, the Knights rebounded in the second half to close to within two points with a minute to go against the Cougars. However, Bloomington North held on to prevail against visiting Northview.

Northview fell behind early, 14-2, before righting the ship and holding their deficit to 32-18 after the first half. In the second half, the Knights got untracked to outscore North 13-7 in the third period.

Sophomore center Julie Whitted led the way for Northview with 18 points and Erica Koehler chipped in 14 for the Knights who were down to just 10 healthy players in practice before the Thanksgiving break.

The Knights made their final run late in the fourth quarter to close to within two points with just over a minute remaining but weren't able to get any closer.

The Cougars (5-0) were led by Kiley Jarrett with 18 points and Lori Whitaker with 13 points.

The Knights (4-2 overall) will face Brown County on Saturday evening as part of a boy/girl doubleheader
