WALDOBORO — Sophomore point guard Patrick McKenney was prolific from the line with 17-of-20 shooting and a game-high 28 points to lift Medomak Valley to a 57-46 triumph over Mt. Blue in boys basketball action Saturday, Jan. 4.

The Panthers (8-1) took an eight-point lead in the first quarter and held tight through the next three frames. Sophomore forward Trevor Brown contributed eight field goals for 16 points for Medomak Valley.

Hampden 83, Mt. Blue 38

FARMINGTON — Hampden Academy had four players in double figures in a 83-38 win over Mt. Blue in a boys KVAC basketball game Thursday, Jan. 2.

Spruce Mountain 111, Wiscasset 25

WISCASSET — Brandon Frey sent in a game-high 27 points as Spruce Mountain took a bite out of the Wolverines with a 111-25 victory in MVC boys basketball action Saturday afternoon, Dec. 28.

Five Phoenix (6-1) players scored in the double digits. Elie Timler posted 15 points, while Owen Bryant added another 14 for Spruce Mountain.

Wiscasset (0-6) trailed 34-4 in the first quarter. Billy Pinkham led Wiscasset with nine points on four baskets and a free throw in the losing effort.


Beating fellow unbeaten Spruce Mountain, 47-44, was a holiday treat for the Boothbay Seahawks Monday, Dec. 23. But for the Phoenix, losing was like watching Scrooge step into The Nest and suddenly steal their thunder.

Spruce coach Scott Bessey had to give the Seahawks credit for pulling off this caper.

“They are great,” Bessey said. “We predicted them to be the No. 1 team in the conference. They’ve got height; they have experience. They are tough. They have perimeter shooting. They are a good team.”

Whatever leftover frustration the Phoenix had after Christmas they took out by scoring 111 points in Saturday’s win over Wiscasset. They get another break through the New Year holiday before starting a two-week homestand against Mt. Abram on Friday.
