Messalonskee, Brunswick girls basketball eager for showdown
Eagles and Dragons have plenty of similarities.

... “I played AAU with a couple of their girls, Sabrina (Armstrong) and Maddy (Suhr), and they’re both really good shooters,” Messalonskee senior guard Sophie Holmes said. “Maddy looks to block people, we know that. Sabrina, she’ll pull up in front of anybody at any point, anywhere on the court.”

In describing Armstrong, Holmes may as well have been describing herself. A Miss Maine Basketball semifinalist, Holmes is one of the most prolific scorers in the state. She averaged 22 points per game during the North tournament to win the Bob Whytock Award as the tournament’s most outstanding player.

“Sophie Holmes is a special talent. She can score any which way she wants. I think every kid Messalonskee puts on the floor is athletic,” Farrell said.

Brunswick girls overwhelmed by powerhouse Messalonskee in state final

AUGUSTA—A season for the ages didn’t produce the desired fairy tale ending Saturday afternoon.

Brunswick’s girls’ basketball team, one week after winning a regional title for the first time, hoped to add a first Gold Ball to its trophy case, but unfortunately for the Dragons, they ran into an absolute juggernaut in undefeated Messalonskee in the Class A state final at the Augusta Civic Center.

Brunswick started slowly and fell behind, 7-0, and 17-2, before pulling within 17-7 after one quarter.

When regional final hero, senior Madeline Suhr, hit a layup early in the second period, the Dragons looked primed to make a serious run, but they missed several easy shots and the Eagles erupted for 10 straight points to blow it open.

Messalonskee girls roll to Class A state title, win first gold ball since 1987

... Messalonskee was unfazed by Brunswick’s early run, as the Dragons had made a similar surge late in their Class A South regional win over Greely of Cumberland Center.

“This is a team that makes runs, they’re capable of reeling off 14-15 points in a row,” said Messalonskee coach Keith DeRosby. “We knew it was coming. We expected them, they’re not going to go down without making that effort.”

“We’ve seen them do that so we knew we had to adjust,” Holmes said.

Alyssa Turner, who scored 12 points, was particularly a force on the defensive end as she was able to use her quickness and length to disrupt Brunswick’s offense.

“We were able to create a lot of havoc and chaos,” said DeRosby.

Eagles success didn’t come overnight
Messalonskee had plenty of motivators on way to Gold Ball win.

... We have an awful good youth program,” Hill said. “Eric Seekins, the rec director in Oakland, does a nice job of setting everything up. We ended up combining third, fourth, fifth, sixth (grades) from all the towns so they got used to playing together coming up through.”

Hill called Derosby tireless. “He’s involved in everything. He’s at all the youth stuff, he’s running summer camps, summer programs, clinics.”

Holmes recalled how Derosby helped her along the way as well.

“He’s been there my whole life,” she said. “He knew what I was capable of. He taped my right arm behind my back one time at rec camp and said ‘you can only use your left hand.’ He’s really been there for me on and off the court.”
