Girls basketball: Chadwick tops 1,000 in setback for Tigers
Northfield used its height advantage to outscore Farmington 40-29 in the second half and complete a season sweep of their final Missota Conference series with the Tigers with a 63-52 win last Tuesday at Tiger Gym.
The Raiders’ three forwards gave the home team fits, combining for 46 points.
“We just struggle against their size and Northfield had 18 points on offensive putbacks in the second half alone,” Farmington coach Sondra Chadwick said. “We just did not do a good job of getting physical on the boards.”
The loss was the Tigers’ fourth in a row and seventh in the last eight games. Their lone highlight came from Sofia Chadwick, who scored 29 points to become the program’s seventh 1,000-point scorer. She also handed out four assists.
Morgan Mach and Kaitlyn Gorden each added nine points and McKenna Mayer grabbed seven rebounds in her first extended varsity minutes.
The Tigers (9-13) close out the regular season this week with games against Chaska, Hastings and Shakopee, which will join Farmington in the South Suburban Conference beginning next season.
