No. 1 Edward Little overcomes No. 8 Brewer, 54-38

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

w/ postgame video ..AUGUSTA — Two prior first-round losses when seeded No. 1 in the boys’ basketball regional tournament may scar the Edward Little faithful for generations to come. So when the Red Eddies fell behind No. 8 Brewer by six points early in the second quarter Monday, nobody could blame maroon-clad spectators for the inability to stomach a quick trip to the concession stand. Eat up, folks. The Eddies shifted into gear shortly thereafter, ratcheted up their efficiency at both ends of the Augusta Civic Center court, and cruised to a 54-38 Class A East quarterfinal victory. “Part of you says, ‘Ooh, this is not fun.' But I never really felt like we were in trouble,” EL coach Mike Adams said. “I knew that we’d settle down offensively. Defensively we were solid.”...

Lewiston throttles Cony, 89-51; Bell nails 5 3-pointer

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

w/ post game video..AUGUSTA — Appropriately enough, after a weekend of tricky prognostication outdoors, there weren’t many forecasts for Monday morning inside Augusta Civic Center that foretold Lewiston hitting 10 3-pointers and winning by 38. Moving onto the next round? Sure, No. 4 Lewiston is capable of running the table in Class A East with its talent and experience. But the storm-delayed 89-51 rout of No. 5 Cony was everything the teams’ KVAC regular-season meeting wasn’t, and what four-versus-five quarterfinals usually aren’t. “We didn’t want to overlook it,”

The Black Bears pulled off a 57-54 upset in Augusta on the back of Cam Brochu's 21-point haul.

AUGUSTA — Maranacook was one of the few lower seeds no team wanted to see and the Black Bears showed why Monday night at the Augusta Civic Center. The eighth-seeded Black Bears trailed for all but 3 minutes against No. 1 Boothbay, but found themselves in front when it mattered to pull off a 57-54 upset of the Seahawks in the Western Class C boys basketball...

The Ramblers rolled into the semifinals with a 74-34 blowout in Augusta...AUGUSTA — When Winthrop’s Ben Allen played at the Augusta Civic Center as part of this winter’s Capital City Hoop Classic, it seemed like he couldn’t miss. On Monday night, the whole Winthrop team seemed like that. The fourth-seeded Ramblers scored the game’s first 15 points and shot 61 percent over the first three quarters, cruising to a 74-34 victory over No. 5 Madison in a Western C boys basketball quarterfinal at the Augusta Civic Center.“I think it’s just experience,” Winthrop coach Todd MacArthur said. “We came here last year. We may have lost in the first round, but we got that experience of playing on the floor. We just feel comfortable here now. There’s no more nerves. The guys were loose, and when we’re loose, we play well.”...

I would’ve liked it to be a little more but we’re OK.”...

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Maranacook has the No. 1 seed in a talented group as the quarterfinals tip off Tuesday..Games have been postponed, people have made fun of blizzards that didn’t come, and we’ve seen a few shocking results. The Western C girls basketball tournament could be the best of the bunch, and it hasn’t even started yet. There are certainly a bunch of genuine regional title contenders as the four quarterfinal games will be played Tuesday afternoon and evening at the Augusta Civic Center. Assuming everything is still on schedule after four Western D girls games, the Western C slate starts at 4 p.m., with No. 3 Dirigo facing No. 6 Monmouth. At 5:30, 10th-seeded Madison looks for the upset against No. 2 Boothbay. No. 4 Old Orchard Beach (15-3) takes on fifth-ranked Mountain Valley (14-5) at 7, and then No. 1 Maranacook plays No. 9 Carrabec at 8:30...

Rangeley girls favored in Western D

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

No. 4 Richmond could be a dark horse as Rangeley looks to defend its title starting Tuesday morning.. AUGUSTA — Can anyone beat Rangeley? That is the question seven other teams will looking to answer as the girls Western Class D tournament kicks off beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Augusta Civic Center. The Lakers (17-0) may be the No. 2 seed in the tournament, but they are still the favorites to come out of the West after a dominant regular season. Rangeley averaged just over 65 points per game this season, and outside of a 51-34 win over Richmond on Jan. 31, the Lakers won each game by 20 points or more. Even still, Rangeley coach Heidi Deery is only focused on her team’s first game Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. against Valley (7-11)...

The Eagles advanced with a 54-40 win thanks to Milo Belleau's 20-point, 10-rebound double-double in Augusta.. AUGUSTA — Milo Belleau won’t turn down an outside shot if the defense gives it to him, but he’s more concerned with how he gets the shot than how often he gets it. Belleau scored a game-high 20 points to go with 10 rebounds to lead defending Western C champion Waynflete to a 54-40 win over sixth-seeded Hall-Dale in the Western Class C quarterfinals Monday at the Augusta Civic Center. No. 3 Waynflete will meet No. 2 Dirigo in the semifinals at 7 Thursday night. Belleau was the constant through an off-shooting day for the Flyers (16-1), scoring 10 points in each half after settling down some early nerves. “Milo is a very gifted player,” Waynflete coach Rich Henry said. “I think he was forcing a couple of shots in the first half, but in the second half, it was coming a little more naturally for him.”..

Lewiston ices cold-shooting Cony

The Blue Devils pulled away for a 89-50 rout in their Eastern A quarterfinal...AUGUSTA — Shooting droughts such as the one that blindsided Cony during the second and third quarters of Monday’s Eastern A quarterfinal against Lewiston are not easily explained. Coupled with a seemingly endless deluge from one Lewiston shooter after another at the other end of the floor, they’re not only baffling but impossibly frustrating. Fourth-seeded Lewiston took advantage of Cony’s cold shooting and exploded for 30 points in the second quarter that sparked an 89-50 route of No. 5 Cony at the Augusta Civic Center. The Blue Devils (12-7) will face rival and top seed Edward Little in the semifinals at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The Rams finished 11-8. Senior guard Ryan Bell led the barrage with five 3-pointers to finish with a game-high 16 points. Ace Curry and Trevor Irish chipped in with 13 apiece as the Devils shot 55 percent from the floor...

Class B/C skiing: Yarmouth, Merriconeag lead way in state meets

Sport: Skiing  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Yarmouth girls and both Merriconeag teams get off to strong starts in the opening Nordic races, but the giant slalom races are postponed. A bit later than planned, the Class B and C skiing state championships got under way Monday afternoon in Presque Isle. Kaelyn Woods of Gray-New Gloucester and Samantha Pierce of Merriconeag defended their classical individual titles in B and C, respectively. “I think it was the coldest weather I’ve raced in all year,” said Woods, who completed the 5-kilometer course at the Nordic Heritage Center in 17 minutes, 43 seconds – more than a minute faster than any of 119 other girls in both classes. “In the woods it wasn’t too bad, but in a few of the more exposed parts the wind had blown so much that there wasn’t really a track anymore.” Pierce led the 58 Class C skiers with a time of 18:29...

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Abby Hamilton scores 24 points to lead the Rams..Underdog Windham High kept pace with the high-scoring third-seeded Gorham girls’ basketball team – until the final 90 seconds of the first half. Abby Hamilton canned her fourth and fifth 3-pointers of the half to start a 12-0 run and the Rams built a 15-point halftime lead. Gorham was never threatened again in a 62-36 Western Class A quarterfinal win Monday at the Portland Expo. “Windham did go on a run and (our run) helped get our minds right again,” Hamilton said. “It helped get our confidence going again.” Hamilton finished with 24 points. Emily Esposito (16 points) and Kaylea Lundin (10) were also key contributors for the Rams. Sadie Nelson led No. 11 Windham (9-11) with 14 points...

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—Nothing has come easily this winter for McAuley's girls' basketball team, but like the juggernauts of the past four seasons, these Lions manage to find a way to prevail. Even against upset-minded opponents in the postseason. Monday evening at the Portland Exposition Building, in a Western Class A quarterfinal, top-ranked McAuley got everything it could handle and more from No. 9 Portland in the first half. The Lions found themselves behind much of the time and went into the locker room deadlocked, 24-24, due in large part to 12 points from Bulldogs senior Gabby Wagabaza, who dominated down low...

PORTLAND—All season, the South Portland girls' basketball team was close. Close to the top teams. Close to earning a statement victory. Monday evening at the Portland Exposition Building, the young Red Riots arrived.

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—Scarborough's girls' basketball team found itself where few expected it to be at halftime of Monday afternoon's Western Class A quarterfinal at the Portland Exposition Building. Leading favored Thornton Academy. The seventh-ranked Red Storm struggled through a nearly eight-minute scoreless stretch and fell behind the second-seeded Golden Trojans, 11-2, but thanks to an improved defensive effort, Scarborough came alive in the second period and when senior standout Ashley Briggs scored six points in the final minute-plus, the final two coming on a bank shot which appeared to have no chance of going in, the Red Storm had an improbable 18-17 lead at the half...

SP erupts in second half, ousts Cheverus in quarterfinals

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—South Portland's second-ranked boys' basketball team was sluggish during the first half of Monday's quarterfinal against No. 7 Cheverus at the Portland Exposition Building, but once morning turned to afternoon, the Red Riots hit their stride. In scintillating fashion. The Stags never trailed in the first half, racing to a 15-10 lead after one quarter and a 20-11 advantage early in the second period, but South Portland, behind its dynamic inside quartet of senior Jaren Muller, juniors Jack Fiorini and Jordin Jackson and sophomore Ruay Bol, began to chip away and the Red Riots trailed by only two, 24-22, at the break...
