Northview girls fall in final regular season game

Friday, February 6, 2009

Staff Report

BLOOMFIELD -- The Northview Knights got off to a slow start on the road in their final regular season game and couldn't recover in a 51-48 loss to Bloomfield Thursday night.

The Knights fell behind 30-19 at halftime before rallying in the second half, but the Cardinals hit their free throws late to take home the victory.

"We dug ourselves too deep of a hole in the first half," coach LuAnne Anderson said. "We did not play with any fire or intensity in the first three quarters. We finally stepped up our defense, but it was too little, too late.

Spring Raines scored 23 of her 39 points in the second half during a late rally by the Knights, but Northview wasn't able to get over the hump.

"We held Bloomfield to only one field goal in the fourth quarter, but (Bloomfield) made 10 free throws.

Northview also lost starter, Stormi Raines to an injury in the fourth quarter and her status is unknown for the opening round of the sectional.

Spring Raines added 13 rebounds to go with her point total and the Knights also got five points from Emily Phillips, but no other player had more than two points.

The Cardinals got 28 points from Sierra Fuller in the victory.

Northview (10-9 overall) faces Terre Haute North in the second game of the Plainfield Sectional on Tuesday.
