Several of the region’s top guards went head to head in Friday’s Class C North girls semifinal between No. 1 Stearns and No. 4 Calais.
Those players canceled each other out to some extent, but the Blue Devils had no real answer for Minutemen forward Annalys Robinson.
Robinson scored nine of her 16 points to spearhead a third-quarter resurgence by Stearns and she pulled down 16 rebounds to help the Minutemen earn a 53-42 victory at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.
“We ran that little pick-and-roll baseline play over and over [for Robinson] and they just didn’t have an answer for it,” Stearns coach Nick Cullen said. “She’s super athletic. In the last four or five games she’s really come on strong.”
