ORONO, Maine — University of New Hampshire sophomore goalie Daniel Tirone, who entered the game with one of the highest goals-against average in the country at 4.01, made 50 saves and Kyle Smith’s late second-period goal tied it as the Wildcats carved out a 3-3 hockey tie with the University of Maine before a sellout crowd at Alfond Arena Friday night.

 

Maine improved it unbeaten streak to five games (4-0-1) and is now 4-8-4 overall, 2-4-1 in Hockey East.

 

UNH is now 4-6-4 and 1-1-4. The teams will play again Saturday night in Durham, New Hampshire.

BANGOR, Maine — Samatar Iman was a reluctant scorer as Edward Little of Auburn geared up for the start of its new high school basketball season.

 

But the chance to make his first varsity start Friday night brought out the best in the 6-foot-1 junior guard, who scored 14 of his game-high 31 points in the fourth quarter as the Red Eddies rallied past Bangor 67-62 at Red Barry Gymnasium.

 

“It was just adjusting to the refs and being able to get to the line,” said Iman, who made 11 of 15 free throws and added five rebounds and five assists. “Being more aggressive with the ball got me to the free-throw line more.”

AUBURN, Maine — Basketball is often referred to as a game of runs, but Friday night, those surges were few and far between.

 

In a game in which Bangor and Edward Little traded defensive stops and occasional offensive sparks, it was two Red Eddies spurts that opened the lead in a season-opening clash of two Class AA North contenders. EL held off the Rams in the final quarter for a 43-37 win.

 

“That’s a great win,” EL coach Craig Jipson said. “Bangor’s a really good team. “(Katie) Butler’s one of the best players. (Emily) Gilmore and (Sarah) Bragg are great senior athletes and players. (Olivia Sharrow) hit a couple of huge 3s.

HAMPDEN, Maine — Hampden Academy demonstrated confidence and cohesiveness on the offensive end during Friday night’s boys basketball opener against Skowhegan.

 

It wasn’t until the Broncos turned up the defensive intensity that they finally distanced themselves.

 

Hampden outscored Skowhegan 19-5 in the third quarter while pulling away for a 67-44 Class A North victory.

Coaches contemplate change as high school basketball season tips off Friday night

Sport: Basketball (boys)
See More in Forums  Posted: December 4th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

 
Maine's new class structure will have many implications.

 

In many gyms around the state on Friday night, the opening tip of the 2015-16 high school basketball season will seem like any other. The opponents will be familiar foes who visited each others’ gyms last year and, in some cases, for decades prior.

 

In fact, for many schools — particularly those in the Mountain Valley Conference — little about the entire season will feel different until the tournament starts. At the same time, others will realize as soon as they step off the bus how much the landscape of basketball in the state of Maine has changed since the Maine Principals’ Association approved a new five-class system last spring.

New roles for Will Merchant and Steven Swavely have helped jump-start the Black Bears' scoring and led to a four-game winning streak.

 

...“It’s UNH week. There’s nothing better than that,” said senior center Will Merchant.

“When I first came in as a freshman, that’s all people talked about was UNH week and you were like, ‘I can’t wait for this game.’ And finally the first one comes through and you’re like, ‘Wow, they were right. It was great.’ And we get to do it for four games now. It’s a big four games for us.”

The sequence starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Alfond Arena and continues at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Wildcats’ Whittemore Center in Durham, New Hampshire.
