Richmond gets defensive in girls basketball win over Gould
Sydney Tilton's double-double leads Bobcats to C South semifinals.

...“(Richmond coach Mike Ladner) encourages if you have the shot, take it,” Tilton said. “Outside-inside, that’s what I’ve been working on. When I have the 3s, I feel confident and I try and follow through and take them.”

Ladner was happy to rely on Tilton in the low post while some of the Bobcats’ younger perimeter players got a chance to ease into their first real taste of tournament play.

Freshman Bryanne Lancaster was one of those players, coming off the bench in the first half to score eight points, including a pair of 3s. Mackenzie Abbott also finished with eight points.

Richmond stifles Gould in C South quarterfinals

... Amelia McMillan (nine points) was a perfect 3-for-3 from the line for Gould Academy, while Priscila Berdeja hit a pair of 3-pointers and finished with eight.

A trey from Mackenzie Abbott (eight points) and a couple free throws in the final frame were more than enough to close out the scoring for Richmond. The defense had already done its job.

“I think we know that as we come along, the offense will come,” Underhill-Tilton said. “As long as we’re doing our part on defense, then the offense will come. We’re not trying to force stuff.”

Peach Foul Trouble Leads to the Other Dexter Players Showing Their Stripes

The Dexter girls basketball team has no secrets about Megan Peach. She is their go-to. They beat Madawaska 50-26. Peach had 19 points… and sat most of the first half with foul trouble. The Tigers learned a lot about their team today in region quarterfinals…

Piscataquis girls roll past Woodland in Class C quarterfinal

... “We played them in a prelim last year. We knew what they had,” said Pirates guard Erin Speed, who led all scorers with 21 points.

Alivia Hunt, who scored 14 points, was the key cog to PCHS’ rebounding efforts with 11 boards.

“She’s one of our better rebounders,” Gaw said. “She hustles to eat breakfast. She’s one of the best 5-foot-6 rebounders I’ve ever had.”

The Pirates led 23-10 at halftime and held Woodland to four field goals over the second and third quarters in outscoring the Dragons 38-9 over that span.

Dauk powers George Stevens girls past Calais in ‘C’ quarterfinal

... Dauk scored 11 of her game-high 31 points over the final eight minutes as coach Bill Case’s second-ranked Eagles pulled away for a 49-40 Class C North quarterfinal victory over No. 7 Calais at the Cross Insurance Center.

Dauk, who had never played in the Cross Center, was as cool as a cucumber in helping the 17-2 Eagles earn a 7:05 p.m. Friday semifinal date with third-ranked Piscataquis of Guilford.

“I would say so,” said Dauk, who also hauled down 13 rebounds. “I felt pretty calm. I was just like, OK, let’s get ahead.”

W/ post-game video : Orchard Beach powers up, downs Richmond

... The Seagulls hit two 3-pointers, made a pair of free throws and forced seven Richmond (19-1) turnovers in the third. The Bobcats missed all 11 of their shots, and standout Sydney Underhill-Tilton went to the bench with four fouls.

For Richmond, the third quarter was a disaster on all fronts.

“We talked about how the first four minutes of the third quarter were going to be crucial, and we were hoping it was going to be us and not them,” said Richmond coach Mike Ladner. “We came out cold. They came out on fire. They hit those two 3s, and we were down just like that. They forced us to hit outside shots, and we couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn today.”

OOB shuts down No. 1 Richmond
The Seagulls use a 23-0 run to advance to the Class C South final.

... Old Orchard Beach went on a 23-0 run over the next 16 minutes and 31 seconds, tying the game before halftime and jumping ahead 37-17 with 3:25 left in the fourth quarter.

“We played very good defense,” said junior forward Meghan LaPlante, who is listed on the roster at 5-foot-9 but plays as if she’s much taller.

LaPlante led OOB with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

************************************************************************************************
Old Orchard Beach bounces No. 1 Richmond out of Class C South
Bobcats go cold in 2nd half in 1st loss of season.

... “It’s tough when you come out of the locker room, tie game, and they go out and put in a couple of shots and we’re down now,” Martin said. “We’re fighting from behind, and you’ve just got to fight. There’s nothing you can really do about it.”

Though the hole proved too deep, neither Ladner nor his players took their sights off the season as a whole. Richmond has now gone 34-2 in two Class C regular seasons, and the Bobcats went a round further than they did last season in the playoffs.

“I look at it as we had a great season,” Martin said. “This is the best team I’ve played on, chemistry-wise. We were just all so close.”

“This is one of the best basketball experiences I’ve ever had,” Underhill-Tilton said. “I couldn’t trade a record or an experience like that for the world.”

Monmouth ousts Boothbay in Class C South
The Mustangs make 12 of 14 free throws in the fourth quarter of their 39-30 victory.

... The key for Monmouth was shutting down Boothbay’s inside game, featuring 6-1 sophomore Faith Blethen and 5-11 junior Page Brown.

“We definitely slowed offensively,” said Boothbay Coach Tanner Grover. “I don’t know if it was our lack of execution, Monmouth’s defense or unfriendly rims, but we definitely had a poor offensive night, however you want to spin it.”

Against the Mustangs’ sagging man-to-man defense, the Seahawks sank only 15 of 56 shots (27 percent).

“They played off of our non-shooters and focused on our scorers inside,” Grover said.

“Monmouth’s a good team. The had a good (defensive) scheme and they stuck with it.”

Monmouth girls basketball beats Boothbay in regional semis
Mustangs head to Class C South title game on Saturday.

... Day scored a game-high 20 points, including six free throws in the final minute to secure the win.

“It’s the fifth time we’ve played them in two years, essentially the same kids on both teams. We knew what we had to face,” Monmouth coach Scott Wing said. “Size doesn’t matter when you have it in your gut and your heart.”

The Mustangs had trouble keeping Boothbay’s tall front line of 5-foot-11 Page Brown, 6-1 Faith Blethen, and 5-11 Nicole Clarke off the boards for most of the game. Brown grabbed 11 of the Seahawks’ 20 offensive rebounds, but Boothbay shot poorly and failed to convert many of those second chances into points.

w/ post game video: Monmouth downs Boothbay, reaches C South final

... Out-of-this-world free-throw shooting and the hot hand of junior guard Tia Day, the Mustangs downed the Seahawks 39-30 in Thursday's Class C South semifinal at Augusta Civic Center.
Day netted a game-high 20 points, and sank nine free throws in the fourth quarter to seal the victory for Monmouth.

"She's phenomena,l" Monmouth coach Scott Wing said. "She was great from the line today. Once we were able to see how they were going to defend her, we were able to set screens for Tia to open her up."

"I knew I needed to come out and shoot more 3s. I didn't against Waynflete, so I wanted to today," Day said. "I felt pretty confident shooting as I've worked on some things."

GSA girls use strong inside game to beat Piscataquis in ‘C’ semifinal

... GSA’s Morgan Dauk led all players with 17 points, nine rebounds, two blocks and a steal. Emma Crosby added nine points and three rebounds, while Mazie Smallidge and Julianna Allen each had eight points. Smallidge also hauled in seven rebounds and blocked four shots.

For PCHS, Sara Almirante posted 11 points and four steals, while Erin Speed contributed eight points and four rebounds.

“This is really cool,” said Dauk. “We try to come into every game thinking of what goals we need to accomplish in order to win. We knew this was going to be a tough one for us so we had to play hard the whole time.
