Varsity: North Stifles Stoughton, 42-31
January 10, 2023
The North Attleboro High Girls basketball team stifled Stoughton with its pressure defense and cruised to a 42-31 victory last night. Once again, North led wire to wire and improved its ledger to 3-2 in the league (3-6 overall). North held Stoughton to only 2 points in the second quarter in building its 29-11 halftime advantage. In addition to playing great team defense, the offense was generating good looks for most of the night with its pick and roll action and motion offense. Sam Faria led all scorers with 16 points and also had 3 steals and 2 assists. Katie Corsetti continued her torrid scoring stretch with 14 more and added 4 boards while Sam Sweeney chipped in with 8 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals. Despite early foul trouble, Mary Ellen Charette contributed 4 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.
North looks to extend its winning streak to three when it visits Franklin on Friday night.
