Viking girls break into win column

     After opening with four consecutive losses, the Caribou girls tasted victory for the first time Friday.

     The Vikings won the road game, beating Old Town, 58-26. A 38-13 scoring run over the second and third quarters was the key.

     “[Old Town] is a scrappy group, but we played very well and it was nice to see us play to our potential for all four quarters,” said Caribou coach Ryan Deprey.

     Maddie Doucette scored a game-high 19 points, including three 3-pointers. Gabby Marquis put together a solid game with 17 points and freshman Kimberlee Susi contributed 10.

     In other action during an abbreviated week, the Fort Fairfield girls lost twice and fell to 1-4 on the season entering their scheduled home game against Shead of Eastport Tuesday afternoon.

     The Tigers lost to Madawaska last Wednesday, 35-27. FF kept the game close for over three quarters but fell short against the undefeated Owls. Emma Campbell scored 10 points to lead the Tigers. On Friday, Cammi King-DeMerchant netted 10 points in the 39-25 loss at Hodgdon. The game was tied at halftime but Hodgdon went on a 26-12 scoring run in the second half.

     The Fort Fairfield boys won their only game and are now 3-1. The Tigers bested Madawaska, 72-36, last Wednesday. Four players reached double figures for the winners, led by Isaac Cyr’s 16 points. Chris Giberson had 13, Carter Bruce 11 and Landen Kinney 10.

     The LCS/MSSM boys own a 2-3 record following last Wednesday’s 54-28 loss at home to Central Aroostook. Mason Patten tallied 14 points in defeat for the Eagles.

     The girls’ team at LCS/MSSM is 1-3 after losing to CA that same evening, 65-26. Taylor Labreck’s 15 points paced the Eagles.

     The Washburn teams have been idle since Dec. 19, but the girls play at Central Aroostook tonight and both the boys and girls are at Wisdom Friday. The girls are currently 3-1 and the boys are 2-2.
