Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine — It took only 3½ minutes for the Houlton Shiretowners to generate the momentum they needed on Saturday night. Houlton’s player-to-player defense helped create turnovers on Dexter’s first five possessions of the second half and the Shiretowners turned them into a 12-1 burst that carried them to the Eastern Maine Class C girls basketball championship with a 46-38 victory at the Cross Insurance Center. “Our intensity was crazy. In the third quarter, our defense was ridiculous,” said Darling’s/BDN Most Valuable Player Kolleen Bouchard, who scored a game-high 20 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked five shots. ..

Posted: February 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA, Maine — The Hampden Academy boys basketball team was on the verge of getting blown out of Saturday afternoon’s Eastern Maine Class A championship game. For the Lewiston Blue Devils were in the process of scoring 21 unanswered points against the Broncos and showing no signs of letting up. But Hampden’s basketball pedigree as the three-time defending regional champion withstood that onslaught in remarkable fashion. Coach Russ Bartlett’s club countered with a 15-0 blitz of its own that grew into a 30-9 game-ending run as the second-ranked Broncos earned a 65-57 victory over the fourth-seeded Blue Devils at the Augusta Civic Center. …

Medomak Valley bounces past Winslow boys for Eastern Class B crown

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine — With an Eastern Maine championship on the line, Medomak Valley sophomore Cameron Allaire knew where the ball was going. Winslow senior Justin Martin had been a force from the perimeter and in the lane, and with the lanky 6-foot-6 Black Raiders’ senior charging down the Cross Insurance Center hardwood with a full head of steam, Allaire was the last line of defense between the Panthers and their second regional championship in three seasons. Allaire managed to get a hand on Martin’s last-ditch 3-point attempt, capping a fourth-quarter surge that propelled top-ranked Medomak to a thrilling 51-48 win over No. 2 Winslow in a scintillating Class B final that lived up to its billing.…

AUGUSTA, Maine — The Bangor High School girls basketball team achieved its primary defensive goal Saturday afternoon — containing Lawrence of Fairfield star Nia Irving.

The Bulldogs fell 58-44 in their Western C semifinal clash against the Cougars in Augusta..AUGUSTA — Jessica Conant was Dirigo’s leading scorer when the Cougars beat Monmouth in the quarterfinals. On Friday afternoon against Madison, Dirigo had a 12-point lead in the second quarter before Conant scored a point. But that’s the thing with Dirigo: The weapons just keep coming. When Kelsey Hutchins was in foul trouble in the second and third quarters, Conant was the one scoring, and she finished with a game-high 17 points as the third-seeded Cougars advanced with a 58-44 victory in a Western C semifinal at the Augusta Civic Center...

Sydney Tilton had a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds as the Bobcats prevailed 35-28..AUGUSTA — It was not pretty and that is just the way the Richmond girls basketball team likes it. The fourth-seeded Bobcats held No. 9 Vinalhaven to 28 percent shooting and forced 21 turnovers to score a 35-28 win in the Western Class D semifinals Friday afternoon at the Augusta Civic Center. “That’s how we do it,” Richmond coach Mike Ladner said. “We grind it out, play good defense and we look to score off transition.” The Bobcats — who will play Rangeley for the Western D title Saturday at 10 a.m. — got a nice defensive effort from reserve center Emily Douin with starters Kelsey Anair and Sydney Tilton in foul trouble, while sophomore point guard Meranda Martin had an outstanding all-around game.

The Black Bears wasted little time dispatching No. 5 Mountain Valley 64-29 Friday.

UGUSTA — The Western Class C girls semifinal game between No. 5 Mountain Valley and No. 1 Maranacook was basically decided in the first quarter, just like Maranacook hoped. “I think it helped us a lot that we came out and really stepped on it right from the beginning,” Maranacook senior Christine Miller said. “We didn’t let them have a chance to think they were in the game.”Playing a stiffling fullcourt press, the Black Bears forced a dozen Mountain Valley turnovers in the first quarter. That helped Maranacook take an early 13-point lead, and the Black Bears cruised to a 64-29 win...

The Lakers survived their closest contest this season in a 39-35 come-from-behind victory to book a spot in the Western D title game..AUGUSTA — For the first time this season, the Rangeley girls basketball team was in danger of losing a game and it could not have happened at a worse time. The No. 2 Lakers — who won 18 of their games heading into Friday morning’s contest at the Augusta Civic Center by at least 17 points — trailed heading into the fourth quarter against No. 6 Searsport, but made enough plays down the stretch to pull off a 39-35 come-from-behind victory in the Western Class D semifinals. Rangeley trailed by three points with 3 minutes, 19 seconds remaining but managed to close the game on a 7-0 run to secure the win. The Lakers will now play Richmond on Saturday at 10 a.m. for the Western D title...
