Lady Chargers Down Falcons to Win NECC Tourney
January 20, 2014By Tom Schermerhorn of West Noble High School
Coach Dale Marano's West Noble Lady Chargers downed the Fairfield Lady Falcons 45-22 behind a strong defense in front of approximately 2000 people Saturday night in the West Noble gym. The Chargers received another strong effort by senior Kelsie Peterson and her 26 points, but the other Chargers were just as valuable on this historic night for the Lady Chargers. Junior Lexi Shepherd ,who has been recovering from an injury, knocked down 9 points for the Chargers and the inside defense from Taylor Fisher, Kaylie Warble and Kenzie Cox was great. The last time the Lady Chargers cut down the nets for the NECC title, West Noble sophomore Kenzie Cox's Grandpa Dan Caskey was coaching the Charg-Hers in 1985. This time it was Cox along with teammates Paige Shearer, Taylor Fisher, Kaylie Warble, Lexi Shepherd, Becca Schermerhorn, Kendal Baker, Kenzie Teel, Cara Groff, Brooke Lutton, Shauna Young and Peterson cutting down the net. Great job ladies! The Chargers(11-5) will be taking on the Tippy Valley Vikings Wednesday night at Tippy Valley in a make up game. JV Game time is 6:15pm.
