Rene Cloukey:” We now know half of the matchups in class c, they all played in the afternoon and evening session

And the game of the day was the last game of the evening, The Fort Kent Warriors and George Stevens Academy going at it early on, it was some great play by the Fort Kent Warriors as they built a 10 point lead up, and they had the lead going into the fourth quarter. George Stevens Academy made a run at them in the fourth quarter, and turned it into a ball game, and it came down to the end before being decided, and it was the Fort Kent Warriors registering the 38-36 win, Ethan Daigle was their leading scorer, and also hit the foul shot that give them the two-point lead in the final seconds.

Ethan Daigle, Fort Kent Junior:” I mean definitely shouldn’t have been that close, but it was, and we executed so all that counts. Feels good but back to practice tomorrow for the next one”.

and here is a recap of the rest of the Monday afternoon and evening session. First game had the third meeting of the year between Hodgdon and Central Aroostook.

Madison Russell, SAHS Senior:” Very Excited, Its always great to come in your first game and get a win, See the ball go through the net. And I think this is a good game to help some of the younger ones get some of the nerves out and help us push forward to our next game”.

And then it was the Class D boys, two (Quarterfinal) games, the first one between Bangor Christian and Easton. And This was the closet game of the day, it was a one-point game at the half, Bangor Christian was able to extend that lead in the third quarter, Easton made a comeback cutting it to two points in the fourth quarter of play, But Bangor Christian was able to hit the foul shots down the stretch and they seal the 63-55 win.
