LAPORTE – Its game plan working to near perfection through three and a half quarters, Northfield’s girls basketball team found itself down just three, 35-32, with 3:03 to play in Saturday’s Class A North Semistate with Marquette Catholic.

However, Marquette began to wear down the Lady Norse down the stretch, finishing the game on a 12-0 run to take a 47-32 victory led by senior twins Sophia Nolan and Emma Nolan.

“The twins pretty much took over,” Northfield coach Melissa Allen said. “They’re good players.”
