fense never slowed down. The Ea­gles man­aged just one free throw in the eight­minute stretch.

Of­fen­sively, Syd­ney Kes­sel­man led the way dur­ing the 24-0 run. She scored all of her game-high 11 points in the quar­ter and was the fin­isher on three tran­si­tion layups.

“We started to make some layups,” Dougherty said was the dif­fer­ence in the sec­ond quar­ter. “In the first quar­ter we weren’t able to. The scor­ing led to more de­fen­sive pres­sure, which led to more scor­ing.

“De­fen­sively I was very proud in the sec­ond quar­ter of the way that we pres­sured with­out foul­ing. That was a big deal.”

It was more of the same in the sec­ond half. Ply­mouth Whitemarsh lim­ited Nor­ris­town to three points in the third quar­ter and two points in the fourth.

“We just lost fo­cus,” Nor­ris­town coach Richard Fisher said. “Once we lost fo­cus the turnovers started. I don’t know if the crowd got to us or what­ever, but to play a high school girls bas­ket­ball game and have 41 turnovers, it’s un­ac­cept­able.

“We have se­niors that need to be fo­cused and help us along. We are a young team, but we just need the se­niors to pick up and take care of the ball.”

Brooke Fel­goise scored eight points in the fourth quar­ter for the Colo­nials.
