Two Aroostook County Teams in Action Today at the Eastern Maine Basketball Tourney
Six games are playing out at the Cross Insurance Center, two involving Northern Maine basketball teams.
In the Class C quarterfinals, it's the 8th-ranked Fort Kent Warriors boys squad gunning to upset top-ranked George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill. That game is scheduled to tip off in Bangor at 3:35 PM.
The 12-7 Warriors defeated the Sumner Tigers 62-53 in last Wednesday night's Class C preliminary game to advance to the quarterfinals.
The late game, the final quarterfinal match-up for Tuesday, swaps the story - with top-ranked Fort Fairfield Tigers girls team up against a scrappy No. 8 Calais Lady Blue Devils.
17-1 Fort Fairfield, coached by Larry Gardner, have had a dominant season with senior Taylor Churchill averaging 16 points per game for the Tigers and senior point guard Chelsey Pelkey averaging 10 points and seven assists. Seniors Kayla Giberson and Teresa Maynard have also been major stars, as has six-foot-one center Megan Peach and 5-10 forward Katie Batron.
That contest gets underway at 8:35 pm.
