FALLS VILLAGE—Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS) girls basketball lost at 52-26 at home Jan. 10 to Northwestern High School Wednesday.

Northwestern went on a tear in the first half and cruised on a double-digit lead for the majority of the game. The Mountaineers’ shots were falling late, but the deficit was too much to overcome.

Led by star guard Maddie Topa, Northwestern picked apart HVRHS’ zone defense and scored basket after basket. An 11-5 first-quarter lead ballooned into a 28-9 advantage for Northwestern at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Mountaineers maintained their discipline and looked determined to mount a comeback. They played Northwestern even in the third quarter and scored nearly half their total points, bringing the score to 43-21 as they entered the final quarter.

With Topa back on the court in the fourth, Northwestern closed out the game comfortably and won 52-26. 

Topa finished with 28 points for Northwestern. HVRHS was led in scoring by Tessa Dekker and Haley Leonard with 7 points each. Anne Moran finished with 6 points and several blocks for the Mountaineers.

Northwestern girls basketball’s record advanced to 7-2 for the season and HVRHS moved to 5-4. 

On Jan. 19, the Mountaineers will host Terryville in Ed Tyburski Gym. Junior varsity begins at 5:30 p.m. with varsity to follow at 7 p.m.
