Furious at this performance, the Northstars took out that fury on host Utica Proctor in Sunday’s consolation game, giving its fans a familiar taste of one-sided satisfaction as it crushed the Raiders by a score of 76-23.
Not only did C-NS’s intense defensive pressure cause turnovers, it converted those turnovers into easy baskets on the way to a 45-14 halftime cushion and more damage in the latter stages.
All told, Bowles had 23 points, exactly matching Proctor’s entire output, while Timpano managed 11 points. All nine players that saw action got at least one field goal as McKayla Roberts threw in eight points and Elizabeth Miles, Emilee Norris and Samantha Roberts managed seven points apiece.
After another week of practice and work, C-NS hosts archrival Liverpool on Saturday at 4 p.m. The Warriors, who lost to C-NS in last year’s sectional semifinal, had its season opener on Tuesday at Proctor.
