D South girls preview: Tournament up for grabs
Top five teams all have shot at championship.

... Each team in the Class D South girls basketball tournament heads to the Augusta Civic Center with at least three losses. By default, defending state champion Rangeley is the favorite as the top seed, although No.2 Vinalhaven also has an experienced, talented squad.

“Rangeley is the team to beat,” Forest Hills coach Anthony Amero said. “They have the most Civic Center experience.”

“I still think Vinalhaven is the team to beat,” Temple Academy coach Mike Gorman said. “They’re well-balanced.”

CLASS D BASKETBALL: Forest Hill’s Amero has hands full
Longtime coach is leading both boys and girls basketball teams.

... There are several logistical factors that will help Amero coach both teams, and in this case, it helps to coach the basketball teams of a small high school.

“Our boys and girls team travel together already, and we spend six hours a night on average on the bus,” Amero said. “It’s one of those things where, we know each other well, they know my (playing) style. (The girls) practice is always prior to the boys practice……It’s a small school — 50 kids — so we all know each other pretty well.”

Still, both Tiger teams will be tested early in the Class D South playoffs. The boys team is scheduled to play No. 5 seed Seacoast Christian at 8:30 a.m. Monday at the Augusta Civic Center. Aside from the early game time, the Guardians are a team the Tigers did not see during the regular season.

Easton girls basketball wins first tournament game since 1988

BANGOR - The Easton girls basketball team wore shirts Monday night before its game against No. 5 DISHS that were simple. They read, "26 years."

That being the amount of time since the school had appeared in the state basketball tournament, with its last (and only) win coming in 1988. But history was made Monday, when the No. 4 Bears took down the Mariners 45-23, advancing to the semifinals.

******************************************************************************************
Easton girls beat Deer Isle-Stonington for first Bangor tourney win in 26 years

... “They played very well,” said Mariners coach Randy Shepard. “They are a well-coached team and they’re very fundamentally sound. I was worried about their rebounding and they outrebounded us, and I was worried about us getting into foul trouble and we got into foul trouble.”

Senior guard Casey Lovely contributed four points, nine rebounds and four assists for the winners.

Sophomore guard Gray paced the Mariners with 12 points on four three-pointers. She also grabbed five rebounds and had three steals.

Freshman Hutchinson had the other 11 points, and she hauled down seven rebounds. Freshman guard Brienna Limeburner contributed seven rebounds and three steals, and junior Orly Vaughn had four rebounds and two steals.

Shead girls roll past Ashland in ‘D’ quarterfinal

... Four players scored in double figures for coach Preston’s team as Holly Preston poured in 19 points, Cassidy Wilder added 18, and Madison Greenlaw and Katelyn Mitchell each had 11.

Shead started the game like gangbusters using a 15-2 run as Wilder and Preston dominated. Wilder dropped eight points in the first quarter, while Preston added six and Ashland was never able to recover, trailing 19-5 by the end of the period.

“I thought we looked really good in spots, but we still have a lot of work to do,” coach Preston said.

Washburn girls upset Central Aroostook ‘D’ North quarterfinal

BANGOR, Maine — Tuning out the bright lights and noise is never an easy thing for a basketball team to accomplish, especially come tournament time.

So when Washburn girls basketball coach Tyler Putnam needed to get his point across to the Beavers during Monday’s game, he started singing on the sideline. Putnam’s song of choice was, appropriately, “Time Is On My Side,” by the Rolling Stones.

“We aren’t the most patient team offensively, but we also know that we can’t score 100 points,” Putnam said. “So we have to be very patient on offense and the only way I could get them to do that was if I sang. Then they would remember to be patient.”

Top-ranked Southern Aroostook beats Katahdin in ‘D’ girls quarterfinal

... The Cougars’ foul trouble also started to show as the game wore on, and Southern Aroostook’s full-court pressure harassed Katahdin into 26 turnovers. Vining made four steals and Sydney Brewer and Kassidy Mathers swiped three each.

“They got in foul trouble and some of their better ball handlers were on the bench and we took advantage of that,” said Urquhart.

Southern Aroostook was also able to overcome an ankle injury to Kacy Daggett as Madison Cummings came off the bench to post six points and five rebounds.

“I thought Madison Cunnings did a good job of coming in and filling that role,” said Urquhart, who added it’s unclear how serious Daggett’s injury is, although he’s holding out hope she’ll be able to play Thursday.
