Norse doomed by slow second period

The Northfield boys’ basketball team could not overcome a slow second quarter on Friday night at home against Bluffton, falling 73-54.

The Norse trailed by as many as 23 points in the second period before cutting the lead down to 18 heading into the locker room. Northfield trimmed the margin down to 10 on numerous occasions in the second half but could not get over the hump.

Jared Peas led the way with 15 points while Clayton Tomlinson had 12. Logan Peas added nine.

AP sources: Mets-Nats or Cubs-Cards for London in 2020

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Major League Baseball is considering one of two matchups for its 2020 series in London: New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals or Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals.

Two people familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press of the potential matchups. They spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because no announcements had been authorized. An announcement is expected after opening day this year.

MLB’s first games in Britain are scheduled for this summer, when the World Series champion Boston Red Sox play the New York Yankees at London’s Olympic Stadium in June 29-30. The venue was built for the 2012 Olympics and reconfigured for the Premier League club West Ham United.
