Varsity: North loses to Taunton 50-44 in overtime at the Taunton Holiday Tournament

December 30, 2022

The North Attleboro Girls Basketball team lost an overtime thriller yesterday, 50-44, to Taunton in the consolation round of the Taunton Holiday Classic. The game was tightly contested throughout with North holding a slim lead most of the way but Taunton chipped away and ultimately tied the game at 43 to force the extra session. While OT losses are always difficult, the rematch versus Taunton demonstrated the team’s substantial improvement in many areas when compared to the more lopsided affair from earlier this season. Coach Correia was proud of the girls’ poise, heart and hustle and sees many positives to build on going forward.

North was paced by Katie Corsetti’s 17 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists and also received strong efforts from Sam Faria (14 pts, 2 rebounds), Mary Ellen Charette (6pts, 12 rebounds) and Emma Hanwell (4 pts, 4 assists). North resumes play next Friday 1/6 when it hosts Milford.
