Sentinel article on Mt. View over Winslow

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Posted: December 24th, 2008 by Tom Nolette

THORNDIKE -- The Heal points will show a win against a tough Winslow team. Those who saw it will remember the roller coaster the Mt. View girls basketball team had to ride to get that win. Ahead by 17 late in the first half, the Mustangs watched as Winslow stole the momentum and nearly the game. Mt. View wasn't safe until Dakota McAdam hit a free throw with eight seconds left and the Black Raiders missed a shot at the buzzer as Mt. View held on for a 41-40 victory on Tuesday night. "We had worked our hardest (in the first half), and at that point we kind of took it easy, and I think we took them too lightly," said Mt. View senior guard Alexis Bennett, who scored a game-high 17 points. "But we stuck with it. We got the win." Winslow (4-2), which never had the lead, got within 40-39 on a three-point play by freshman Megan Pelletier with 41 seconds left. The Raiders then tied the score on a free throw by Kasey Paquette with 29 seconds to go. Mt. View (5-1) worked the ball inside to McAdam (eight points, eight rebounds), and she drew a foul. McAdam had missed four foul shots in a row, but hit the first for the one-point lead. The Raiders rebounded the miss of the second free throw and set up a play, but Lindsay Gordon missed a long shot from the top of the key at the buzzer. The first half was unlike the second in every way, as Mt. View had leads of 10-0, 15-2 and 28-11. The Black Raiders committed 12 turnovers in the first quarter against Mt. View's press and looked tentative on the court. That changed when 5-foot-6 senior forward Jade Herman entered the game. Herman set picks, made smart passes, grabbed nine rebounds and disrupted Mt. View's flow. When freshman Elizabeth Ferry (14 points) scored in the final seconds of the first half, it started a 12-1 Winslow run that got the Raiders back in the game. "She hasn't got a chance to play a lot," Winslow coach Tom Nadeau said of Herman. "She was a spark for us. She blocked out. She got rebounds. She did those little things to help secure the basketball and give us a chance." Mt. View scored only 13 points in the second half and made just 5 of 15 free throws after the break. The Mustangs were 14 of 34 from the line on the night. Still, as someone once said, they're Heal points, not style points. "They're a great team," Bennett said. "They were making us work out there, and I feel that's it's a great win. They deserved it as much as we did. I'm just glad we came up on top." Matt DiFilippo -- 861-9243 mdifilippo@centralmaine.com
