NORTH SALEM, N.Y.-The North Salem girls basketball team has gotten off to a good start this season, but another team that’s been playing well recently—Brewster—handed the Tigers a 54-44 loss Jan. 3 on their home court.

Brewster came out with more energy early and took advantage of a sluggish North Salem start to build a 22-13 lead at the end of one quarter.

The Tigers fought to get out of that hole for the rest of the game, trailing 30-25 at halftime, and falling behind 46-31 at the end of three.
