Week 8: Early lead propels NFA past WA

The Centaurs traveled to Norwich for the usual defensive struggle against Norwich Free Academy on Thursday.

This time, it was the Wildcats who won the low-scoring affair, 39-23.

NFA got ahead early thanks to the play of Emily Orcutt who scored 12 of her game-high 16 points in the first half.

That helped the Wildcats build a 21-8 lead at the half.

The Centaurs (10-6) fought back in the third quarter, outscoring NFA 11-6, with nine of those points coming from the free throw line.

But it was NFA who put 12 points on the board in the fourth to keep the win in house.

Kaylee Saucier and Sophia Sarkis led the Centaurs with seven points in their only game of the week.

Woodstock Academy goes from a pair of one-game weeks in a row to a three-game week.

The Centaurs have three home games against East Catholic (Tuesday), Montville (Thursday) and Fitch (Friday) next week.
