Greene and Norwich golf downed in home matches
BINGHAMTON – As the Saints of Seton Catholic returned most of the team from a season ago, the experience was on display against the Norwich lady netters as they took all seven points in the match against the Tornado Wednesday afternoon.
An extremely talented Saints squad – as noted by the Tornado’s head coach Nikki Brooks – allowed Norwich to win a total of 10 games throughout the entire match, giving up no more than four in any of the individual or doubles matches.
Norwich’s Natalie Benenati, who suffered her first loss of the season to Nikki Crowley, scored those four games, two in each set in the first singles match.
Erica Gage, senior on the Norwich roster, won three games, and Emma Brooks was able to steal a game away from her opponent.
First doubles Brooke Diehl and Chloe Glanville fell captured two games in the match against Seton but fell 6-1 in both sets.
“Seton is very good,” said Brooks. “They are going to be hard to beat this season.”
Norwich (2-3) will see the Saints again in their final match of the regular season. The Tornado face Windsor for the second time this season on Friday. Norwich came away with a 4-2 win in the season opener against the Black Knights.
