Portland wins AA North title
The top-ranked Bulldogs beat Edward Little to set up a rematch with South Portland in the state final.

AUGUSTA — In a game loaded with well-known players, it was unheralded Portland sophomore Simon Chadbourne who stepped to the forefront Friday night in the Class AA North boys’ basketball final at the Augusta Civic Center.

A slender reserve, Chadbourne made his first four 3-point attempts, including two in the third quarter when top-ranked Portland pushed a one-point lead to 11 en route to a 66-53 win against No. 2 Edward Little.

“Tonight he made them and all the credit goes to him. He shot and he made them,” said Portland Coach Joe Russo. “Simon got us going. Simon got us in the game. Simon gave us confidence and everybody fed off Simon.”

Bulldogs have too many weapons for Eddies, reach fourth straight AA state final

... "Against us earlier this year, he didn't play that much," EL coach Mike Adams said. "But I saw him twice against Deering and we saw him against Oxford Hills (in the semifinals). So we scouted him plenty of times. He's a shooter. That's what he can do, and he did it tonight."

Leading 24-23 at the half, the Bulldogs scored seven straight to start the third quarter. EL got it down to five with a Wol Maiwen hoop with under three minutes left in the quarter, but Moss took it to the hoop for two, then found Chadbourne for 3-pointers sandwiched around a Jarod Norcross Plourde hoop to make it 42-31 Portland.

"We helped off of him twice. We didn't find him once in transition. Just those little mental mistakes," Adams said. "They've got a lot of weapons. If you don't help on Moss, you'll let him get to the rim."

Bulldogs bite back, avenge loss to EL with landmark regional final win

... Portland junior Terion Moss exults during the Bulldogs’ 66-53 win over Edward Little in Friday’s Class AA North Final. Moss was named the regional tournament’s most outstanding player as he helped Portland set up a rematch with South Portland in the state final next weekend.

South Portland rallies to win AA South title in OT
The Red Riots beat Thornton Academy to earn their second straight regional title.

... South Portland rallied to tie the game, then pulled away in overtime for a 71-61 win Friday night at Cross Insurance Arena.

The top-seeded Red Riots upped their defensive effort and hit clutch shots in the end.

“We weren’t rotating as well as we do,” South Portland Coach Kevin Millington said of his defense early on. “But, really, Thornton’s great … We just had to grind. That’s all.

“They’re warriors, these guys. Been that way all year.”

Red Riots top Trojans in OT, clinch conference title

... The Red Riots were led by Ansel Stilley, who scored 14 of his 19 points in the second half along with 10 rebounds. Ruay Bol also added 18 points and Hassan 17.

David Keohan led the Trojans with a game-high 21 points, while Austin Boudreau chipped in 17 in the loss.

The difference in the game was second-half shooting for the Red Riots. After shooting just over 30 percent in the first half, South Portland would shoot 50 percent the rest of the way, thanks to tough play in the paint and five timely 3-pointers.

TA coach Robert Davies felt that South Portland’s schematic adjustments troubled the Trojans late in the game.

SP boys rally to edge TA in OT, set up state final rematch with Portland

There’s something about the Cross Insurance Arena that brings out the best in the South Portland boys’ basketball team.

And causes grey hair and heart palpitations for its coaches and fans.

Friday evening, the defending Class AA South champion Red Riots added another thrilling chapter to their tournament legacy when they rose off the deck and rallied for an epic victory over Thornton Academy in a regional final that won’t soon be forgotten.

Simon Chadbourne was the unsung hero of the Portland game. There is alot of love for Terion Moss, but this Chadbourne kid in my opinion turned the momentum. For a sophomore to impact a game like the way he did esp coming off the bench proved his maturity beyond his age. Hope he gets the credit for what he accomplished for the team.

Chadbourne was impressive for sure. Terion is the heart and soul of that team though, and I think all of Chadbourne's threes came off of his penetration. I was also impressed with Charlie Lyall that night. He plays old school style and gets a lot of putbacks and layups. Really an effective player who could give SOPO problems.

Riots, Bulldogs in classic Class AA state final rematch
Rivals Portland and South Portland both had to fold several new players into their programs to forge a rematch.

...Junior guards Connor Buckley (transfer from Deering), Noah Malone and Liam Coyne stepped into important roles as shooters and defenders.

“I feel like for this team everything just clicked,” said Bol, who is averaging 20 points in the playoffs. “Our first couple practices, everyone was playing well. And then from there, we knew: This team really plays well together, and as long as we play like this all the time, we can do it.”

Both teams have made adjustments. The result is a premier matchup of equals, with similar styles and strengths.

“South Portland is a really good team,” said Moss. “Like Coach said, they can play like us, get out on the fast break and knock down some shots, and they do all those little things that we do. I think it’s going to come down to playing defense and rebounding.”
