Valley Christian sends NHS to loser-bracket

Northport High (18-4) will face Cusick (10-12) in a District 7 1B boy’s loser-out game Wednesday at Deer Park High School. Game time is 5 p.m.
The Mustangs, who dropped a 59-37 decision to third-ranked Valley Christian (19-2) last Saturday night at Deer Park High School, will play Cusick for the fourth time this season.
Northport is 3-0 against the Panthers to date, but if the first three encounters with their Panorama League rivals haven’t necessarily been buzzer-beaters, they’ve been close.
