Sophomore guard Shayla Connors (seven points) made a steal and a layup to give the host Polar Bears (5-2, 2-1 Inter-High) their first lead, 28-26, with four minutes to play, and North went on to post what was reportedly its first girls' basketball victory over Burncoat in more than a decade. Senior forward Jamie Alonzo led North with nine points, while guard Shanelle Sims paced the Patriots (2-4, 1-2) with 16 points.
