John Bapst girls basketball excited about strong start in packed class

HAMPDEN - An early exit from the playoffs last season saw some changes come to the John Bapst girls basketball program. But with a plethora of seniors on board, the Crusaders are set to strike in Class B North.

Crystal Bell's side pocket three-pointer last week against Orono gave Bapst a win near the buzzer, a microcosm of the team's fast undefeated start. Bell said it was the kind of momentum-shifter the team needed at this point in the season, proving to the others in the class they can make a statement.

MDI has been rescheduled for 1/17, but they have back to backs against MCI who will be looking to take one of those if JB doesn’t keep their collective eyes on the ball. The Orono game was an example of not staying focused on the team your playing, but the team you thought you were playing!

Hermon utilizing experience in hunt for B North title

HERMON - Go up against the Hermon Hawks girls basketball team this year, and you may be in for a tough time.

The Hawks are 3-0 to start 2017, and have wasted no time in letting others know they are a force to be reckoned with in Class B North. Hermon owns an average margin of victory of nearly 40 points per game to date, among the highest in not just the conference, but all of the North region as well. With eight upperclassmen on hand, the Hawks bring depth most others would envy, which makes them a threat as the season progresses.

Oak Hill girls clamp down on Mountain Valley

...The Raiders got back on track in the final period, building the lead as high as 12 before the Falcons made their last stand with 3-pointers by Kierstyn Lyon and Carver to make it 33-27 with 2:42 remaining in the game.

But a bucket by Sadie Waterman made it 35-27 and Desirae Dumais sealed the win.

“I think the difference was maybe just a little bit more composure at the end,” Labonte said. “Kids are just battling hard — both teams battled hard.”

Six of Dumais’ game-high 18 points game at the line, and the Raiders made 11 of their 12 foul shots.

“Lately we haven’t been doing too good (at the free-throw line), but in practice we’ve been practicing them more, and we’re just getting better and better,” Dumais said.

Carver led Mountain Valley with seven points.

Freeport girls dig deep, extend streak with win over OOB

...The Falcons took a 39-36 advantage to the fourth quarter, where the Seagulls again drew within one and had a couple opportunities to take the lead, but Freeport didn’t let it happen and senior Jessie Driscoll made a pair of critical shots to give her team some breathing room.

Down the stretch, Smith and senior Allie Goodman both set up teammates with pretty passes and finished on the fastbreak as well and the Falcons went on to a 56-46 victory.

Goodman and Smith both had 16 points as Freeport won its fourth game in a row, improved to 5-1 and in the process, dropped Old Orchard Beach to 4-2.

“It was a gutsy win,” said Falcons coach Mike Hart. “We never quit. We were down two starters and with a shorter bench, the girls came out and played hard. Some kids had great minutes. I’m proud of them. They worked hard today.”

Seeley lifts Poland past Lake Region in 3OT

...Seeley made a free throw with 1.8 second left in the third overtime to give the Knights a 53-52 win over Lake Region.
“It’s kind of ironic that tonight was the night,” Dolley said. “She just said it in the locker room, ‘Coach, you told me I was going win this game tonight.’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’”

Seeley also scored on a hard drive about two minutes earlier put Poland up by three points, 51-48. She also made a steal with 1:14 left in the game. Nine of her 19 points game during the three overtime periods.

“I’m telling you, she makes me so proud every time,” Dolley said. “She works so hard, and the effort is what gets her to be successful. She just never quits. And to play 44 minutes all night, and it didn’t look like she was exhausted. And to play great defense on True tonight was … I was very proud of her.”
