PAPILLION - It took a pair of strong second halves to prevail Papillion- La Vista over Norfolk in both the girls and boys matchups on Saturday.

The Monarch girls got down early against the Panthers, trailing nearly the entire first quarter, but started to pick things up in the second.

Brooklyn Holloway got it going with a pair of three-point plays and turned an 8-point deficit into a single point Monarch lead at the half.

Norfolk played right at Papillion-La Vista's hip for most of the third quarter, thanks to the strong play of Cameryn Skiff, Tasha Eisenhauer and Emerson Waldow.

But in the blink of an eye, sophomore guard, Rease Murtaugh, exploded for 11 points in what was a powerful finish to the third quarter for the Monarchs, who never released the lead from the points.

Papillion-La Vista finished off Norfolk 75-65, led by Brooklyn Holloway with 21 points. Rease Murtaugh scored 15, while Dru Zoucha and Mia Slizinski chipped in 12 and 11, respectively.

The Panthers were led by Eisenhauer with 18, followed by Skiff and Waldow with 14 points each.

Papillion-La Vista moves to 6-7 on the season, while Norfolk falls to 1-11.

In the boys matchup, Norfolk took an early lead after Easton Sullivan got going with a pair of first-half three's. 

The lead would change back and forth between the Panthers and the Monarchs, with Brock Rahl heating up with his perimeter shot and ability to score the interior floater.

Papillion-La Vista took a small halftime lead and managed to open it up late in the third quarter and carried it all the way to the fourth.

Norfolk tried to rally, but was no match for Monarch big-man, Eric Ingwerson, who finished with a double-double on 12 points and 12 rebounds.

The Monarchs held on for a 60-51 lead against the Panthers and move to 5-9, while Norfolk drops to 2-10.

Papillion-La Vista scored with multiple pieces, including Brock Rahl with 14, Demarcus McCarty with 13, Eric Ingwerson with 12 and Trey Richardson with 9.
