ORONO - Orono boys basketball needed wins from Presque Isle, Winslow and Belfast just to have a chance at clinching a playoff spot in Class B North. Fortunately for them, everything fell into their favor, meaning a win against Old Town could get the Red Riots in the tourney.


Evan Kenefic's late free throw ultimately gave the Red Riots enough breathing room, giving them a 40-38 win and clinching a postseason berth in the process.
