But Mooseheart ultimately couldn't contend with the Norsemen and the overall performance Scott put forth.
"She (Scott) came out with one of the hottest hands shooting I've seen, and quite frankly it was a joy to watch even though I was the opposing coach," said Mooseheart coach Bryan Miller. "It wasn't easy to defend her, and she's an all-stater for a reason. She also had a ton of assists, and she's a phenomenal distributor of the game with her incredible passing.
"She's one of the finest players we've seen all year, probably the best."
Scott started out with right-wing 3-pointers at 6:35 and 5:30 followed by top-of-the-key threes at 3:30 and 2:35 that put Newark ahead 20-12.
She'd add her final trey off the left-wing at 0:35 and a basket right inside the circle at the buzzer that gave the Lady Norsemen a 27-14 lead courtesy of maybe Scott's most memorable eight minutes on the court.
"She was able to knock a bunch down early, and after that Kaitlyn (Hatteberg) got going inside after Meggie was able to find her a bunch of times," said Newark coach Barb Scott. "She (Hatteberg) was in the right spots and was able to put them in near the basket, and she did a great job of that in the middle two periods."
Hatteberg tallied eight in the second frame as Newark went ahead 51-16 at halftime. She'd add 10 in the third quarter as the Lady Norsemen went ahead 72-23 entering the fourth quarter with a running clock.
"Most of my baskets tonight came from Meggie's assists, so I couldn't have done anything without her," Hatteberg said. "She was amazing tonight, and we can't wait for the regional championship game on Friday."
Newark will be in search of its fourth consecutive regional crown and 12th overall in school history.
"We're locked in and ready for Friday," Meggie Scott said. "It's go time for sure, because it's do or die, and I can't wait for the chance to win another regional."
