Nobles’s 42-41 win over Rivers Sunday for the NEPSAC Class A girls’ basketball title was down-to-the-wire, hold-onto-your-seat exciting. But it was hardly surprising. The two top teams in the ISL were meeting with a title on the line for the second time in a little more than two weeks. Nobles won the ISL regular-season title Feb. 15. That score? 42-41.
If the score was a mirror image so was the title, with Nobles winning its second straight NEPSAC championship to finish at 27-0. The Bulldogs came back from a 10-point deficit with five minutes to play to beat Rivers at Loomis Chaffee.
