North Woods slips to Polar Bears in regular season finale; playoffs were set to start Thursday

Posted

FIELD TWP – The North Woods girls basketball team closed out the regular season Thursday with a home-court loss to Floodwood, 58-42.
The Grizzlies took an early 4-0 lead before the Polar Bears got rolling, and once they did they put together a game-changing run. Confronted by a stingy defense and a barrage of threes, North Woods soon was staring at a 26-8 deficit. The Grizzlies righted the ship and matched the Polar Bears the rest of the way, but couldn’t counter with a run of their own to make headway against Floodwood’s lead.
The Grizzlies had a promising 4-2 start to the season and were 8-8 in section play, but struggled down the stretch to finish 8-18 on the season.
Slotted as the 12th seed for the Section 7A tournament, the Grizzlies were scheduled to play at 7 p.m. Thursday at fifth-seeded Chisholm. In their second game of the season, North Woods pushed Chisholm to the wire before suffering its first loss, 75-68.
