Norton ladies prevaili

Norton’s girls had no trouble holding on in the second half. In fact, the Bluejays led by as many as 22 before settling for a 48-37 victory. That gets Norton to 10-10 with the regular season finale at home vs. Hill City Tuesday. The Railroaders are 8-11 and host Oakley Tuesday in their regular season finale.

The boys game is the big attraction. Norton is 16-2 and Ellis is 13-5. The Railers have won seven in a row, while the Bluejays come off of a couple of close wins over Plainville and Hoxie. This should be a very good one.

Norton will likely be stuck with Beloit in their half of the sub-state draw. The Trojans lost their second game of the season Tuesday, again to Sacred Heart. Scott City is now the #1 seed in the sub-state at 17-1, followed by Beloit and Norton at 16-2. It doesn’t matter what the Bluejays do in their next two games; they’re either going to be #2 or #3.

Teams are warming up now. Should be going in about 15 minutes.
