The replays clearly showed it was a foul, and that it came before the buzzer.

Cape rallies to shock Brunswick in improbable OT classic

PORTLAND—Hollywood would have rejected this script out of hand as too corny and unbelievable.

An injured player makes a triumphant return, fights through a sluggish start, misses a potential game-winner, then gets a second chance in improbable fashion and this time, comes through to advance his team to the next round.

No producer would green light that story.

But sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction and what transpired Saturday evening at the Portland Exposition Building was strangely wonderful and heartwrenching.

Cape Elizabeth tops Brunswick in overtime
A foul as time expires leads to Finn Bowe's decisive free throw, and the Capers move on to the Class A South semifinals.

... Dragons Coach Todd Hanson thought the game was going to a second overtime when Bowe was forced to fake the defender.

“It’s a judgment call,” Hanson said. “In an overtime game in the tournament, I just wish … it seemed like (the officials) were unsure. So I wish the three of them got together and had a discussion. And it didn’t seem like they had that discussion.

“When I saw him up-fake I thought that bought us time and ran the clock out. He went back up and it (appeared) a late call.”

Oceanside boys outlast Nokomis in ‘A’ North quarterfinal

... Junior forward Michael Norton Jr., who had scored 27 points, fouled out with 2:10 left and the Rockland-Thomaston team clinging to a 46-44 lead in its regional quarterfinal against Nokomis of Newport at the Augusta Civic Center.

And free-throw shooting to protect that slimmest of leads? That was an iffy proposition at best for the Mariners, much better known for the 3-point shooting barrage that carried them to the school’s first title a year ago.

Yet Oceanside made just enough from the line — 7 of 11 over the final 96 seconds — to escape with a 53-49 victory and earn a return trip to Wednesday’s semifinals.

Mike Norton (27 points) leads Oceanside past Nokomis 53-49 in Class A North QFinals

... Key point in the game? Mike Norton fouled out with 2:10 left. How would Oceanside get points the rest of the way?

Here’s how: four Oceanside free throws came from Nate Raye and Sam Atwood surrounding a Nokomis turnover.

Now up five (50-45) with a minute left things looked good for Oceanside. Not so fast!

Cony knocks off Hampden in ‘A’ North boys quarterfinal

... Seventh-ranked Cony of Augusta used pressure defense fueled by mass substitutions to force 22 turnovers and draw key player-control fouls that led to a 60-48 upset of No. 2 Hampden at the Augusta Civic Center on Saturday.

“To watch it and if you’re not part of it, it may be a, ‘What the hell are they doing type deal,’” said Cony coach T.J. Maines of his team’s style of play, which is modeled after Grinnell (Iowa) College, a high-scoring NCAA Division III program. “But there is a method to the madness, the kids have bought in and they work their tails off.”

******************************************************************************************************

Cony boys basketball stuns Hampden in A North quarterfinals
Rams beat No. 2 Broncos for first quarterfinal win since 2003.


... “The last couple of games we’ve just really had a good defensive game,” said junior Jordan Roddy who scored a game-high 16 points. “Our defensive rotations have been good and we were able to shoot the ball pretty good and score, too.”

The Rams led 26-24 at the half but the game took a significant turn when Hampden junior Ian McIntyre picked up his third and fourth fouls, both offensive, at the start of the third quarter. The burly 6-foot-5 center scored 52 points and grabbed 40 rebounds in two regular-season meetings against Cony.

“He’s been the best player we’ve played against all year,” Maines said. “We haven’t taken more than two charges in a game all year but that’s what we’ve been working on in practice and tonight we got our feet there.

Messalonskee boys top Gardiner in ‘A’ North quarterfinal

...Coach Peter McLaughlin’s Eagles shook off an 11-point, first-quarter deficit and went on to defeat Gardiner 53-46 in a quarterfinal at the Augusta Civic Center.

“I thought our defensive intensity basically from the five-minute mark of the first quarter for the rest of the game was as good as it’s been all year,” said McLaughlin. “We limited a lot of things that they did.”

Fifth-ranked Messalonskee (14-5) moves on to Wednesday’s semifinals against the winner of Saturday’s late game between top-ranked and undefeated Medomak Valley of Waldoboro and No. 8 Skowhegan.

************************************************************************************************
Messalonskee battles back to beat Gardiner
Violette, Warren lead Eagles to A North semifinals.

... McLaughlin said he expected the Tigers to focus on Violette, and he told the senior guard this would likely be a game in which he didn’t score his usual 20 points.

“He looked at me, ‘Well Coach, what can I do more?’ Nate, you’re doing everything you can possibly imagine by forcing them into that,” McLaughlin said.

Added Violette, who scored 11 points in the second half to finish with 13: “It’s a great feeling knowing if they want to look at me, I have my teammates that are going to score all those points, and Chase Warren stepped up big time with all kinds of backdoor cuts.”

Skowhegan boys stun top-ranked Medomak Valley in ‘A’ quarterfinal

AUGUSTA, Maine — The Skowhegan Indians barely qualified for a trip to the Augusta Civic Center this week, requiring double overtime to outlast Brewer in a Class A North preliminary game.

Now the eighth-ranked Indians are giant killers after stunning top-ranked and previously undefeated Medomak Valley of Waldoboro 54-53 in the regional quarterfinals at the Augusta Civic Center on Saturday night.

“It’s funny,” said Skowhegan senior guard and tri-captain Brendan Curran, who scored a team-high 17 points. “Because that (prelim) was so hard it gave us good experience for tonight. We weren’t going to back down. We’d already been through the hard stuff to get here, we knew we could pull it off.”

************************************************************************************************
Skowhegan knocks off No. 1 Medomak Valley
Previously unbeaten Panthers fall to No. 8 Indians.

... “I’m speechless. Talking to the boys, I didn’t know what to say in the locker room,” coach Tom Nadeau said. “We talked about believing, we talked about one possession at a time. It was going to be a battle from start to finish, and they stuck with it.”

Curran was one of three Indians in double figures, with Cole Pierce and Garrett McSweeney each chipping in 11 points.

Medomak Valley (18-1) was led by 16 points from Cam Allaire.

“They outplayed us,” coach Nicholas DePatsy said. “They hit some big shots, they got some putbacks. We missed some layups here and there, but they’re a good team. They played hard, they deserved to win.”

Hoops, I've paid bout 50 cents per game to watch live on NFHS...subscibe and you should be able to find video replay of Skowhegan-Medomak.

Ya know, bout mid season it was apparent the balance and parity in A North. At that time, Messo was a 10 seed. I cannot remember in last 30+ years in East(A North now) when both 7th and 8th seed knocked off #2 and #1 in Quarterfinals.

Geezil said not long ago, " Central Maine boys basketball is coming back from doldrums"...Winthrop, Cony, Messo, Skowhegan on the rise...
