HERMON - There were several No. 1 seeds up for grabs Tuesday night, but the one in Class B North girls basketball would be at the mercy of a winner-takes-all contest.

ORONO - Unified has become a staple in Maine for the opportunities it provides to special needs athletes. But these basketball stars got an additional opportunity to meet the stars they watch at the Cross Insurance Center up close and in person Monday afternoon.

BANGOR - Most teams that turn the ball over 28 times in one game don't end up winning, but most teams don't have the versatility of Maine women's basketball.

ORONO - On the heels of a 1-1 weekend against Merrimack College, two Maine men's hockey players earned high honors.

ORONO - Brendan Robbins' hat trick was a spark for Maine men's hockey against Merrimack Friday night, but it was Patrick Holway's game-winner in overtime that gave the Black Bears a much-needed 4-3 win over the Warriors at Alfond Arena.

 

Meanwhile, the women played host to rival New Hampshire, and took a 2-1 lead into the third period. But two penalties put the Wildcats on a 5-on-3 advantage, where they tied the game up at 2, ultimately serving as the final.

BANGOR - Skowhegan girls basketball got off to a slow start against Bangor, with an opportunity to pick up some nonconference HealPoints. But the Indians did not fret, and bounced back in a big way.

BANGOR - Turn the clocks back to November of 2016, and Bangor-based fighter Aaron Lacey was one of the most feared fighters in the northeast. He had just turned pro in April, but he already held a 4-0 record, and was set to dominate in New England Fights once more in 2017.

ORONO - Whenever the New Hampshire Wildcats come to Orono, the mantra is usually the same: Beat UNH.

BREWER - Tenacious defense and dynamite shooting were plentiful for the Cony Rams Wednesday night in Brewer, and they allowed the team to stay red hot.

 

The Rams earned a 63-58 win over the Witches, earning their sixth straight victory and moving to 10-5 on the year.

OLD TOWN - It was history on the hardwood Wednesday afternoon, as the Old Town Coyotes fielded a Unified squad for the first time ever. Not only was it historic, but it was also a success.

 

The Coyotes downed rival Orono 80-74, earning their first ever win.
