Seahawks win low-scoring affair 24-16

Wed, 02/05/2020 - 8:45pm

The shots weren’t falling and the passes were mostly off target for the Boothbay Region Seahawks and Carrabec Cobras but a 12-2 first quarter lead by the host Seahawks provided enough cushion for a 24-16 win at Porter Memorial Gymnasium Wednesday, Feb. 5.

The Senior Night and final regular season game victory for Boothbay gave it a 16-2 record, but according to the MPA website, the Seahawks dropped to second place in the Class C South Heal point standings, despite having defeated the top-seeded Winthrop Ramblers (16-2) twice this season.

Boothbay managed to score only two points in the second quarter and three points in the third quarter. In the final frame, four free throws by Chloe Arsenault (eight points) and three by Glory Blethen (13 points) provided the only scoring for the Seahawks.

The Cobras were within striking distance with just under three minutes to play, trailing by only three, 19-16, but turnovers and missed shots forced them to foul late in the contest where Arsenault and Blethen provided the difference at the charity stripe.

Cheyenne Cahill was Carrabec’s top scorer with seven points.

The Boothbay girls will next take on the Ramblers on Saturday, Feb. 8 in the Mountain Valley Conference championship game at Lewiston High School at 1 p.m.
