    Of course not, it was a great game.  Someone had to come up short and unfortunately for the Stearns’ fans, it was them this time.  I think when you have a talent like that #34, the team should’ve worked harder as a TEAM to get her open.  She seems to score at will but didn’t take
    nearly as many shots as she should’ve…then again she’s very unselfish.

      #34 didn’t have any open shots. Central guarded her well. All her shots were contested. The 3 pointers she hit to put it into overtime and the one in overtime were in the faces of 2 Central defenders each time.

    The Stearns coach was the biggest problem those girls had. I was in Bangor this weekend and went to the game with a couple friends to show them HS basketball, I used to be a star on that floor. That coach made many bad decisions that handicapped those girls. If he didn’t show up last night those girls would of won by 15pts.

    Hats off to the Stearns girls. Even #44 that alomost pounded one of the central girls when they went to the floor. Exciting.

    Central was an equally good team. Koizar was aggressively well guarded and was well shut down on her outside shots during regular time. Her 3 pointers in the overtime period were nothing short of classic clutch basketball. N0# 32 Skolfield from Central was a force to be reckoned with under the basket. She had a nice under the basket hook shot that was tough to defend. While Emily Wark wasn’t hitting her outside shot she is still a dynamo on the floor. Po0r officiating actually decided the outcome of this game. There were long spans of time where it was actually 8 against 5. Stearns girls should hold their head high. You had a fine season you should be proud of.

    Congratulations to both teams for an outstanding basketball game. It doesn’t get any better than the excitement these 2 teams generated on the floor of the auditorium last night! I would expect to see both these teams back in the tournament next year.

    Congratulations Central and good luck in states next weekend!
