Norfolk Coach Tony Siske: “We closed the game well.”

NORFOLK – Finishing games has been a point of emphasis for Norfolk this season.

That hasn’t always been a strength for the Panthers this year. They surrendered a ten-point halftime lead in a loss to Kearney. They lost an eight-point lead going into the fourth quarter against Lincoln Southwest.

But Saturday, Norfolk was able to extend their three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter against #10 Papillion-La Vista South in a 55-46 win.

Free throws were a big part of that. The Panthers were 14-of-18 from the line in the final quarter, including 8-of-10 shooting from junior Tyson Stelling.

Norfolk next faces Grand Island on the road this coming Friday.
