WESTWEGO – It has been a very good season already for Northshore High.

It got a bit better Wednesday afternoon.

The Lady Panthers overcame a slow start and the size of Liberty to run away from the Lady Patriots in the second half in a 45-30 victory in the opening round of the Platinum Girls Bracket of the Allstate Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic at the Alario Center. It was the ninth straight win for Northshore.
