Westwood High School girls basketball team can’t generate much offense in loss to Norway

ISHPEMING — The Westwood High School girls basketball team was held to just five field goals Tuesday night as Norway earned a 41-17 win.

Marissa Carello led the Patriots with seven points, while the Knights’ Haley Clifford led all scorers with 13 points.

Norway held a 30-9 lead at halftime as Westwood didn’t score more than five points in any quarter.

“The proverbial lid on the basket haunted us,” Westwood head coach Kurt Corcoran said.


Cedarville 38, Newberry 32

At Newberry, frustrating was the word to sum up the Indians’ night as they held a significant lead early on, but couldn’t hang on against the Trojans.

Newberry (7-5) led 17-5 after one quarter, but leading scorer Taylor Bryant, who finished with 17, got in foul trouble and spent much of the rest of the game on the bench. With Bryant out for long stretches, the Indians managed just 15 points altogether over the final three quarters.

“We just can’t score and we were really handcuffed with Taylor out,” Newberry coach Fred Bryant said.

Newberry won the JV game 32-26. The Indians play Thursday at St. Ignace.
