Haase gives Reading winning edge

Eyes were on Reading’s top scoring guard, Olivia Healy. North Andover coach Susan Breen engineered a box-and-one defense designed to stifle Healy, but with the attention focused on the senior captain, junior Sarah Haase took advantage of the cracks in the scheme and out­muscled the Scarlet Knights in the paint.

Haase scored 19 points and pulled in 11 rebounds to lead top-ranked Reading to a 50-33 victory over North Andover at the Tsongas Center Saturday for its second consecutive Division 2 North championship. Reading, the defending Division 2 state champions, pushed its winning streak to 48 games and will face Medfield in the EMass title game Monday at TD Garden.
