Nordhoff girls make it to championship game

Despite having not played any games and practicing only four times since the outbreak of the Thomas Fire Dec. 4, Nordhoff High School’s girls’ basketball team advanced to the championship game at the Avalon Holiday Classic on Catalina Island last week.
The Rangers opened the tourney with a 32-28 come-from-behind, overtime victory over Wildwood.
The Ojai girls trailed 28-16 with six minutes left in the fourth quarter before finishing on a 16-0 run.
Junior guard Stella Moore paced the rally, scoring all 10 of her points in those final minutes.
Senior Morgan Mays scored what proved to be the game winner on a put-back basket in overtime, and Moore iced it with a pair of free throws.
