By Jessica Bloch, BDN Staff

BANGOR – The No. 3 George Stevens Academy girls basketball team used a stellar defensive effort and 19 points from Alida Peake en route to a 63-36 victory over No. 6 Fort Kent Tuesday in an Eastern Maine Class C quarterfinal. The Eagles, now 16-3, move on to play No. 7 Orono, which upset No. 2 Stearns of Millinocket Tuesday, in Friday’s semifinals.

Orono holds off Stearns to post upset win

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR — It’s been a while since the Orono girls basketball team won a game at the Bangor Auditorium. That was 11 years and two presidents ago, and current coach Jessica Libby was a junior for the Red Riots. Orono persevered after watching Stearns trim what had been a 21-point lead down to two, and the seventh-ranked Riots held on for a 48-44 Eastern Maine Class C quarterfinal win over the No. 2 Minutemen Tuesday. The Riots (14-6) entered the final quarter with a 40-23 lead, thanks to a 10-2 run to open the quarter, but the Minutemen (16-3) kept chipping away. Stearns turned up its defense pressure and forced several Orono turnovers and cashing in on many of them. The Minutemen got to within two with 24 seconds left, as Monica Deabay came up with a steal and found Adriana Eurich for a 3-pointer. Stearns, however, turned the ball over on its final two possessions and Elizabeth Fox and Chelsea Wagner each hit a free throw to ice it. Sarah Thibeault led all scorers with 17 points for Orono, one of three Riots in double figures, as Ally Sherman added 12 points and Jade Keezer 10. Sam Lyons posted a double-double for Stearns with 11 points and 18 rebounds while Eurich finished with 10 and Kirsten Marter eight.

By Ernie Clark, BDN Staff

BANGOR — Top-ranked Calais used a balanced attack Tuesday night to hold off upset-minded Houlton 45-39 in an Eastern Maine Class C girls basketball quarterfinal at the Bangor Auditorium. The win sends coach Dana Redding’s club to a 3:35 p.m. semifinal Friday against No. 5 Washington Academy of East Machias. Those teams played two tight regular-season contests, with Calais winning 44-43 at home on Dec. 10 and then 55-48 in overtime on Jan. 6. Tessa Clark paced Calais offensively with 10 points, while Nicole Osborne had nine points and seven rebounds, while Clark had eight points and 10 boards. Point guard Courtney Hill contributed seven points and five steals. Vanessa Sanderson scored 24 points for 11-9 Houlton, including a three-point play to give the eighth-ranked Shiretowners their only lead at 31-30 15 seconds into the fourth quarter. That lasted just 12 seconds before Cross made two free throws and Hill scored on a steal and drive to give Calais a 34-31 lead. The Blue Devils (15-2) then built a 39-33 lead on five inside points by Osborne before Houlton mounted its final rally, getting within 41-39 on a jumper by Sanderson with 1:54 left. Shannon Brown answered for Calais with a jumper, then the Blue Devils grabbed three straight offensive rebounds after missed free throws to keep the ball in their possession.

Raiders pressure defense stops Patriots

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR — Washington Academy’s pressure defense proved too much for Penquis to handle, and the fifth-ranked Raiders from East Machias pulled away for a 57-47 Eastern Maine Class C quarterfinal win over the fourth-ranked Patriots of Milo at the Bangor Auditorium Tuesday. Coach Gary Wood’s club improves to 13-6 and moves on to Friday’s semifinals while the Patriots wind up 12-7. The contest was topsy-turvy throughout the first half, until the Raiders turned up their defensive intensity, closing out the second quarter on an 11-0 run to take a 30-19 lead into the locker room. The Raiders cruised from there, as Penquis got no closer than six points. Sophomore center Taylor Seeley poured in 28 points and hauled down 15 rebounds for WA, including nine on the offensive end. Andi Flannery was the other Raider in double digits with 13 points while grabbing eight boards and coming up with four steals. The Raiders had 18 offensive boards as a unity. Erica Lyford led all scorers with 29 points for Penquis, capping off a stellar four-year career. She also had 13 rebounds.
