BANGOR — The Bangor Auditorium was the place to be for fans of the Washburn Beavers Thursday as both its boys and girls teams competed in Eastern Maine basketball semifinals.

The teams enjoyed strong support from its community and the girls team earned a trip to Saturday morning’s regional final by defeating Aroostook County rival Fort Fairfield 49-37.

The Washburn boys also turned in a strong showing against Jonesport-Beals before the Royals used their height and size en route to an 84-72 victory.
