Fort Kent boys grab senior night win over Woodland
FORT KENT, Maine — With more than half its team composed of seniors, it was only fitting that the Fort Kent Community High School boys basketball team emerged victorious over Woodland during the Warriors final game of the regular season on Saturday.
The Warriors pulled off the senior night win, 72-60, through a true team effort. The usual suspects, the senior trio of starters Jace Rocheleau, Steven Pierce and Eden Paradis scored 49 points between them. Rocheleau was the Warriors highest scorer of the night with 25 points, including two 3-pointers. Pierce had 14 points with one from 3-point land and Paradis pitched in 10 points. Other senior Warriors who found their way to the scoreboard were Kyle Blair with six points and Ian Albert and Riley Alley who each contributed an additional two.
Woodland’s Chris Plissey had the game high score of 26 points. Wyatt MacArthur earned 12 points and Ethen Monk scored 11 points for the Dragons. All three scored a three pointer.
The win brought the Warriors to a regular season 15-2, with its only losses to Class B front-runner Caribou. Fort Kent is the top-ranked team in Class C North, but Central Aroostook is a mere 1.1 points behind in the standings. The two teams played Monday night in Mars Hill.
The Warriors will enter the tournament as either the No. 1 or No. 2 seed, playing their first games in the quarterfinal round either Feb. 18 or 19.
