EM Girls Class B Quarterfinals

Presque Isle defense shuts down Medomak Valley

BY RYAN McLAUGHLIN, BDN STAFF

BANGOR — Presque Isle played suffocating defense in the second half, as the third-ranked Wildcats held Medomak Valley of Waldoboro to 10 second-half points, including just three in the fourth quarter in pulling away for a 62-34 Eastern Maine Class B quarterfinal girls basketball victory at the Bangor Auditorium Friday. Coach Jeff Hudson’s Wildcats improve to 16-4 while Medomak finishes with the same record. It looked as if it was going to be a Wildcat runaway early on, as an effective zone defense sparked Presque Isle to a 16-5 lead after one quarter and a 20-5 advantage two minutes into the second after back-to-back baseline jumpers by Caitlin Esancy. But the Panthers roared back, outscoring PI 19-8 over the rest of the quarter, with Jasmyn Rose and Danielle Dyer combining for 10 of those points. Presque Isle rose up after half-time though, finishing the third quarter on a 9-2 run and hitting 15-of-21 free throws in the fourth to gradually pull away. Esancy led all scorers with 18 points, including 10 in the second half, while Sarah Porter had 14 points and 12 rebounds and Kayla Richards 12 points and five steals. Rose’s eight points paced Medomak.

John Bapst advances to Wednesday semifinal

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR — John Bapst’s best offense was its defense Friday night, as the second-ranked Crusaders held No. 7 Winslow to 26 percent shooting (13-for-50) and escaped with a 33-29 Eastern Maine Class B quarterfinal victory at the Bangor Auditorium. The 18-2 Crusaders play No. 3 Presque Isle in Wednesday’s 2:05 p.m. girls basketball semifinal. The two teams split their meetings during the regular season. Winslow ends its season 15-5. This game was a defensive battle throughout, with the biggest lead being a five-point Bapst edge in the third quarter. Despite its shooting woes, the Black Raiders had plenty of chances to pull the upset, mainly thanks to poor Crusader free-throw shooting (5 of 16), but Winslow could not pull any closer than three and Sam Gormley’s free throw with six seconds remaining salted it away. Gormley posted a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds while Kirsty Moriarty and Morgan Chasse added seven points apiece for the Crusaders. Freshman Megan Pelletier led Winslow with 16 points and 15 rebounds.
