Deering girls fight off Lewiston in quarterfinals

AUGUSTA—A season fraught with challenge and disappointment is still on track to produce a happy ending.

Deering’s girls’ basketball team, the No. 3 seed in Class AA North, had to scratch and claw for 32 minutes in its quarterfinal versus sixth-ranked Lewiston Thursday evening at the Augusta Civic Center, but with their season on the line, the Rams reverted to the clutch form everyone expected from them all along.

Deering started strong, taking a 7-0 lead, but the Blue Devils controlled the rest of the first half, pulling within 9-8 after one quarter and riding a 25-9 run to a seemingly comfortable lead, but as time expired in the first half, Rams senior Tasia Titherington hit a clutch, momentum-turning 3-pointer to cut Lewiston’s deficit to 25-19.

The Rams rally in the second half for a 51-47 win in a Class AA North quarterfinal.

... Lewiston post player Victoria Harris (19 points) was controlling the middle, while the Devils’ guards hit from outside.

“We didn’t play any defense at all,” Murphy said.

And the offense was not much to boast about.

“At the beginning, we were shooting quick, quick, quick,” Titherington said. “We needed to have more rotation with the ball and get them out of their D.”

That strategy began in the closing seconds of the half. Ramirez worked the ball up and saw Titherington.

... "I thought we were out on her, on her shots, except for that one," Lewiston coach Lynn Girouard said. "And that probably did get her started."

Titherington completed a three-point play with 2:49 left in the third quarter to give the No. 3 Rams (12-7) a 28-25 advantage — their first lead since early in the second quarter. That stretched Deering's run to 12-0.

Ashleigh Mathisen, Delaney Haines and Victoria Garand also scored in the third for Deering.

"The kids have gigantic hearts," Murphy said. "They just give you that second, third and fourth effort that you need."

Bangor holds on to upset Cheverus, 46-44

Cheverus' rally falls just short in quarterfinal loss to Bangor

AUGUSTA—When the shot went up, it appeared the impossible comeback was going to become a reality.

After trailing by as many as 19 points, the Cheverus girls’ basketball team roared back and had a chance to win at the end of Thursday afternoon’s Class AA North quarterfinal versus Bangor, but what might have been the program’s most amazing victory to date wasn’t quite meant to be.

The fourth-ranked Stags started slowly, fell behind, 10-2, and trailed, 15-9, after one quarter at the Augusta Civic Center and things got no better in the second period, as the fifth-seeded Rams, riding the strong play of senior standout Katie Butler and the 3-point shooting of junior Lauren Young, went ahead, 29-13, at the half.

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

Bangor holds off Cheverus comeback to win Class AA North girls quarterfinal
... But when the Bangor Rams desperately needed a basket late Thursday afternoon, the 5-foot-6 junior point guard delivered.

Young’s 3-pointer from deep along the right wing was her team’s only field goal during the final seven minutes of play, but it was just enough to enable No. 5 Bangor to hold off No. 4 Cheverus 46-44 in a Class AA North quarterfinal at the Augusta Civic Center.

“Honestly, everything’s a group effort,” said Young, who finished with 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc. “I got the ball because everyone else was working hard. I was just the one who got it. It could have been anyone.”

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

Bangor holds on to upset Cheverus, 46-44
Katie Butler scores 20 points to lead the fifth-seeded Rams to a 46-44 win over the No. 4 Stags in the AA North quarterfinals.

... Cheverus (11-8) had beaten Bangor by 22 points on Jan. 6.

“We’ve been finally playing some good basketball the last couple weeks of the season,” said Bangor Coach Joe Johnson. “A lot of it is maturity and kids understanding their roles, and feeling comfortable with each other.”

Butler had 20 points, 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and three assists. Her play helped the Rams build a 16-point lead in the third quarter.

As Johnson said, “We needed all of it.”

AA North girls' quarterfinal: Bangor holds off Cheverus' charge

Butler completed a three-point play on the first possession for the No. 5 Rams (9-10). Then, at the other end she pulled down a rebound off a Cheverus miss, flashing the kind of game she was about to have.

"She's fiercely competitive. She's one of the most competitive, intense girls I've ever coached," Bangor coach Joe Johnson said. "You got the rebounds, the blocks, she really can do it all."

The fourth-seeded Stags (11-8) fell behind 10-2, with Butler and Sam Thayer scoring five points apiece.

"We did some things defensively in the first half that weren't great," Cheverus coach Steve Huntington said. "They got Katie Butler off some easy baskets, got to the free-throw line. Then when she draws attention down low, that opened up some of their shooters, and they shot the heck out of it."

Maine Girls’ Academy stops Sanford
Defense keys the Lions' 40-33 win in a Class AA South quarterfinal.

... Summer Camire scored all nine of her points in the fourth quarter as Sanford was able to get within a possession, 31-28, on a basket by Paige Cote with 2:31 left.

Jill Joyce came through with the game’s biggest basket when she converted an offensive rebound as she was fouled and made the ensuing free throw to stop Sanford’s momentum.

“The shot went up and I thought, ‘I need to jump up and get it,’ ” and I put it right back in,” Joyce said. “All of us work hard and we all do our part.”

“We got it to three and then we made the mental mistake on the box-out,” said Sanford Coach Kristy Parent.

Catherine Reid, who led MGA in scoring with 10 points, made 5 of 6 free throws down the stretch to secure the win. Serena Mower (9 points) and Hope Olson (7 points) also contributed to the Lions’ offense.

Scarborough girls regroup, hold off TA in quarterfinals

PORTLAND—After a two-game losing streak to end the regular season, Scarborough’s girls’ basketball team heard all the doubters.

Friday afternoon, in a Class AA South quarterfinal at the Portland Exposition Building, the Red Storm answered them in the best way possible.

By showing their mental fortitude and holding off Thornton Academy for an extremely sweet victory.

Scarborough, ranked third, and the sixth-seeded Golden Trojans went back-and-forth at each other in a game of runs, but in the end, the Red Storm’s defense and the poise and excellence of junior Sophie Glidden proved to be the difference.

******************************************************************************************
Glidden leads Scarborough past Thornton Academy

Sophie Glidden scores 22 points and hits the clinching free throws in a 42-38 Class AA South quarterfinal victory.

... With junior forward Sophie Glidden leading the way, third-seeded Scarborough turned back No. 6 Thornton Academy 42-38 in a Class AA South quarterfinal at the Portland Expo. Glidden scored 22 points, including the clinching free throws in the final seconds.

That enabled the Red Storm to hold on after the Trojans cut a 10-point deficit to one with 2:17 remaining.

“It’s been that way all year,” Scarborough Coach Mike Giordano said of Glidden. “She’s had a tremendous year. She’s kind of been the kid that gets us going. We rely on her to make the big shots in the big moments.”

SJ Tournament notes: Class AA girls :

- Paying the price Foul shots are commonly known as "free throws," which can be ironic because they can sometimes cost a team.
