Lake Region defense stifles Yarmouth
The Lakers advance to the Class B South semifinals after a 45-30 victory.

... Kristen Huntress led the Lakers (13-6) with 22 points – including two 3-pointers and 12 free throws.

“I haven’t played well when we’ve played Yarmouth, so I kind of set a goal for myself to have a good game against them,” said Huntress, a 5-foot-4 guard. “Without my teammates, I wouldn’t have been able to do that. They were finding me when I was open, and they were letting me hit those open shots.”

Cory Langenbach scored 12 points – all on 3-pointers – for Yarmouth (12-7), which was held to six points in the second and third quarters combined.

“We were really looking to use our post players because they’re a smaller team, and we were hoping to take advantage of that,” Yarmouth Coach Christina Strong said. “But we really could not get into a rhythm.”

Poland upsets Wells in Class B South
Nathalie Theriault scores 14 points for the Knights in a 37-30 quarterfinal victory.

... The Warriors ended the regular season with a six-game winning streak and recorded a 37-30 road victory over Poland on Feb. 7.

“We typically have played zone (defense) all year because we’re small. We’re tiny,” said Poland Coach Mike Susi. “We felt after the first time we played them we could really get out and pressure them.”

“Last game, we came out in a zone defense, and today we played man and put a lot of pressure on the ball,” said Poland’s Nathalie Theriault, a junior guard. “It was really beneficial. It sparked our offense.”

No. 7 Poland knocks out No. 2 Wells in B South quarter
... The move stymied the Warriors early, and allowed the Knights to establish their physical presence.

“It was a good adjustment,” Wells coach Don Abbott said. “We’d seen them several times, and we’d played them two weeks ago. Everything they’d put on film was mostly zone-zone-zone, and that’s what we’d practiced against for most of the week. It’s not that you don’t know how to play against a man, but I think we were a little disjointed to start. I thought it was a great adjustment by (Susi), and it was a good call because we hadn’t seen them play a lick of man all year.”

Meanwhile, Theriault had been her normal, pesky, distribute-the-ball self for most of the Tuesday matinee, even hitting a key 3-pointer in the second quarter. But in the fourth, she shined.

Lincoln Academy cruises into semifinals
The Eagles beat Mountain Valley in a Class B South quarterfinal, 60-39.

Cagney O’Brien scored 22 points and Gabrielle Wajer added 19 to lead Lincoln Academy to a 60-39 victory over Mountain Valley in a Class B South girls’ basketball quarterfinal Tuesday at the Portland Expo.

“Our defense is what we’ve been working on most because we know we can score,” said O’Brien, a senior captain. “Our speed definitely helped us on our breakaway layups, and we had height underneath. It was a really good team effort.”

The sixth-seeded Eagles (14-5) will play No. 7 Poland, an upset winner over Wells, in a regional semifinal at 1 p.m. Thursday at Cross Insurance Arena.

Foxcroft uses fourth-quarter push to beat PI, reach ‘B’ final

... “When we came in at halftime, coach was talking about rebounding,” Simpson said. “He stressed to us that we needed to start rebounding more.”

Simpson finished with a team-high eight points, while Bickford posted seven points and five rebounds and Bourget contributed six points. Mackenzie Beaudry also made her presence felt, providing six points and six rebounds.

“In a game like that, you’ve got to make the plays in the fourth quarter and they made more plays than we did,” said Hudson.

Presque Isle was hampered by a significant ankle injury to junior point guard Wheaton. The Wildcats’ shifty playmaker limped noticeably and was unable to show off the dynamic offensive skills that had helped spark PI into the semifinals.

Freshman helps lift Houlton girls past Hermon, into ‘B’ North final

BANGOR, Maine — Freshman Abbie Worthley came off the bench to hit a pair of critical 3-pointers, one in the fourth quarter and another in overtime, and the defending two-time state champion Houlton High School Shiretowners rallied for a 37-33 win over Hermon in their Class B North semifinal Wednesday night at the Cross Insurance Center.

Top seed Houlton, 19-1, will face third seed Foxcroft Academy, 16-4, in Saturday’s 2:05 p.m. title game.

It was the third overtime game between the two this season and the Hawks appeared poised to pick up their first win over Houlton as they led 31-25 with 2:18 left.

Both teams are not the same as they were then. FA is much better and Houlton is still very good, but not clicking on all cylinders right now. But I will say Houlton seems very resilient. They have won ugly their first two games, but winning ugly is still winning.

I pick Houlton as well, but another nail biter for Shire fans.
