North Andover barely beats Gloucester in tourney opener

(Continued)

Lufkin scored a game-high 20 points, many of which came when she drove in toward the basket for layups.

"It finally clicked with 15 seconds left," Moroney joked. "We were like, 'Hmmm, we need to stop this girl.' "

Lufkin got off a shot under pressure and it clanked off the rim and fell into Moroney's grasp as the buzzer sounded.

"We didn't play very well," Moroney said. "There's a lot of mistakes that we can work on."

Karalis added: "It was a weird game. It was up and down but obviously it was exciting to win."

Karalis scored 10 points and made four steals.

"I thought Nikki played a great game," North Andover coach Sue Breen said. "I thought her defense was excellent. And she came up with some big steals."

Four players scored 10 points each for North Andover. They were Karalis, Foote, Erika Zahoruiko and freshman Morgan Lumb.
