Washburn holds off Easton for fifth consecutive victory

In a rematch of last year’s Eastern Maine Class B championship game, the Old Town Coyotes proved too much for the Caribou Vikings Saturday at MacKenzie Gymnasium in Old Town.
The Coyotes had beaten the Vikings in overtime in the February regional final at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor and went on to win the state title.
The Washburn Beavers have separated themselves as the top Class D team in the region following Monday’s win over Easton. Fort Fairfield, meanwhile, suffered its first loss under new coach Logan McLaughlin. The Tigers fell by just four points at Southern Aroostook, one of the favorites in EM D this season.
