NorthWood had good scoring balance with three players in double figures. Senior Tiffanie Alexander and junior Jordyn Frantz both tossed in 13 points and Olson added 12.

“This was a good game for us,” Neff said. “We got contributions from everyone that played and we got a chance to rest our inside players. We needed that with two more games on Saturday.”

The Black Swish stretched the lead to 53-23 by the end of the third period.
