The Weather Outside Was Frightful
(Plus WIZ Top 10 Teams- Week # 2)
By THE WIZ

Wow what a week folks! Especially weather wise. Earlier in the week we had temps in the 50’s, and then on Thursday into Friday we had a massive ice storm that hit southern Maine really hard. Driving to work at 4:30am on Friday morning was frightful, with power outages everything was pitch black and the roads were treacherous all covered with ice. Traveling was very slow as you did not know what might be in the road up ahead. The storm raised havoc with the H.S. basketball schedules. Most games were postponed. Many were made up on Saturday, some will be made up this week and some have yet to be re-scheduled. Some gyms were even being used as shelters for people without power during and after the storm. We usually don’t run into these problems before Christmas, but this year things are different and as I stated earlier before the season started that this season would be crazy, well this just adds to it. Many teams will be playing three games this week as a result of the weather.

In some big games that were played this past week in Class A East The Brewer Witches beat Hampden 53-49 sending the Witches into this week’s Top 10 teams and dropping Hampden out for now. Mt. Blue remains undefeated beating Lawrence and Nokomis. Bangor beat Nokomis and their game with Lawrence was postponed until Monday.And Watch out for Morse the Shipbuilders are now 3-0.

In Western Class A Cheverus won both of their games to move to 3-0. Thornton beat Massabesic and their big game with rival Biddeford was postponed until Monday. South Portland beat Biddeford and their game with Marshwood was postponed until this coming Wednesday. Portland beat Noble and their game with Bonny Eagle was postponed until Monday. The Deering Rams are 3-0 as they beat Gorham and then on Saturday they won an overtime thriller over Windham 53-50.

In Class B East Camden moves to 3-0 with wins over Waterville and Belfast. The Rockland Tigers beat Belfast, but the Tigers then were stunned by Winslow as Winslow pulls off the upset 43-41. MDI moved to 2-0 with a win over Caribou. Hermon beat Bucksport 55-28 then the Hawks squeaked one out over Old Town 48-43 and Matanawcook beat John Bapst by just 2pts. Things are just warming up!

In B West Falmouth is making an early statement as they beat Poland 59-52 then handled Yarmouth with ease 52-33. The Capers of Cape Elizabeth beat GNG 65-49, then their big anticipated match-up with Greely was postponed and no date is set just yet and Lake Region moves to 3-0 with wins over Freeport and GNG.

In Class C East the Calais Blue Devils big game with Washington Acad. was postponed with no make-up date set, but the Blue Devils did beat Shead 66-52 to improve to 2-0. Lee moves to 1-1 with a win over Houlton 63-54.

In C West Dirigo won two more games to improve to 3-0 with wins over Madison and Livermore Falls. Wiscasset with a win over Hall-Dale 72-49 are now 2-0.

In Class D East Central Aroostook’s game with South Aroostook was postponed. Woodland who is had a bout with players having mono crushed East Grand 93-39 and DIS beat Jonesport-Beals 55-40.

In D West Greenville beat Valley 70-54 and the Bobcats of Richmond absolutely destroyed North Haven 98-13. Hate to see games like that.

Blue Blazes Ranked #4 in American Journal's SMAA Power Rankings

Sport: Basketball (boys)  Posted: December 15th, 2008 by Tom Nolette

4. Westbrook (2-0): In two games, Nich Jobin has established himself as a scoring and rebounding force for the Blue Blazes, averaging 20 points and more than 10 rebounds a game. Junior center Dominic Borelli has missed the first two games with an injury. His return will bolster the Blazes, but Tyler Kelly, Christian Hamilton and Jose Nouchanthavong have shown in the early going that Westbrook has plenty of players who can chip in. (AJ)
