Greely upends Gorham
The Rangers pick up a big win against the two-time defending Class AA state champs, who have lost two straight after a 47-game winning streak.

..Greely, one of the favorites in Class A South, took the lead for good when Anna DeWolfe scored baskets on back-to-back possessions to make it 59-55 with 1:30 left. The Rangers sank seven of eight free throws in the final 38 seconds to close it out against the two-time defending Class AA state champions.

“Everyone stepped up,” said DeWolfe, a junior guard who led all scorers with 26 points. “In big games, everyone needs to step up. It was great.”

Brooke Obar, a sophomore guard, scored 15 of her 18 points during the second half to help Greely overcome a 31-25 deficit. Camille Clement, a freshman guard, had 13 points.

“They have three kids who can shoot the ball really well, so it was a challenge for us to guard that 3-point line,” Gorham Coach Laughn Berthiaume said.

Michelle Rowe, the lone senior in Gorham’s lineup, scored 22 points. MacKenzie Holmes finished with 21 points.

Recap: Marshwood girls slam Sanford, rise to 8-0

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine -- The Marshwood High School girls basketball team outscored Sanford, 38-12, in the middle quarters en route to Saturday night’s 56-28 win over Class AA Sanford. The Hawks (8-0) led 28-16 at the half, but used good defense to spark an 18-2 surge in the third quarter to put the game away. Natalie Herbold led the Hawks with 11 points, all in the first half, while Casey Perry added eight and Elora Montgomery and Jordyn Beers had seven each. Marshwood hosts Kennebunk Tuesday. Sanford is 2-6. Recap source: Seacoast

Marshwood now at 11-1

Perry and Co. give (Marshwood) Hawks multiple options

...The Hawks (11-1) are on track to grab a top-three seed in Class A South for the first time in recent memory, even after suffering their first loss of the season on Monday at Class AA Bonny Eagle.

On a team where nobody averages in double-figures (forward Miranda Montgomery leads at 9.0 and guard Natalie Herbold is at 6.6), Perry is the third-leading scorer with 6.0 points per game. She’s also averaging 6.4 rebounds.

“She does a lot of things for us, and a lot of things that don’t show up in the box score,” said coach Steve Freeman. “She’s an instinctive rebounder, which is big for us.”

Perry was cleared to play on the eve of the game that ended Marshwood’s season last winter, a competitive 46-35 loss to top-seeded Greely in the regional semifinals at Cross Insurance Center in Portland. But her real work came in the offseason with her AAU team, the Seacoast Thunder, and she was ready to go when practice began again in November.

Mt. Blue's Mittelstadt is a player to watch — and applaud

A coach’s perspective

A proud smile flashes across Mt. Blue girl’s basketball coach Fred Conlogue’s when you ask about his go-to player.

“She is very unique in terms of her ability. She pushes her body probably more than most people will,” Conlogue explained. “She’s willing to sacrifice and take a risk, which makes her a special player because she is willing to do that.”

It can be painful as well as heroic to watch when the fearless Mittelstadt barrels down the middle of the key with a handful of opponents with outstretched arms waiting for her.

Mt. Blue pushes back, shakes Leavitt
...But the Cougars capitalized on turnovers and made key foul shots down the stretch to shelve an aggressive Leavitt team, 27-23.

Dozens of shots never found their mark from both teams that battered each other underneath most of the night. By halftime, the Hornets led 14-9.

“I think that had a little bit to do with the defense,” Leavitt coach Dave Gerrish said. “I think both teams defended well both times down. Both teams were able to transition back and defend and that’s kind how the game went — back and forth.

“Our five-on-five versus your five-on-five. We’ll see who does better.

“We rebounded well. We didn’t take care of the ball. The last six or seven minutes, they got some turnovers. Unfortunately, that put them ahead. I think the key to the game is they took care of ball than we did at the end.”

Skowhegan girls basketball shuts door on Gardiner
Annie Cooke leads way with double-double in post.
..The junior had a career-best game, with 35 points and 20 boards, leading Skowhegan to a 60-54 win.

“We knew we needed to get the ball to her in the low post,” Skowhegan coach Mike LeBlanc said. “She took us on her shoulders and just carried us.”

Cooke scored 22 of her points in the second half as Skowhegan held off a Gardiner rally. Down nine points late in the third quarter, the Tigers fought back and took a brief 43-42 lead on a Logan Granholm 3-pointer with just under six minutes to play. A Lindsey Warren layup gave the Indians the lead back for good, and Cooke scored 10 points down the stretch, before fouling out with 1:11 left, to help clinch the win.
