Fort Kent girls defeat Katahdin on the road

STACYVILLE, Maine — The Fort Kent Community High School girls varsity basketball team traveled to Stacyville on New Year’s Day where the team racked up a 44-35 victory over the Katahdin Cougars. 

The Warriors played with more confidence than in prior games this season thanks to a stronger team and overcoming some growing pains, according to the coaching staff.

“It was great to have most of our girls back from COVID quarantines,” Fort Kent assistant coach Alexa Massey said. “The girls are starting to trust one another and make better decisions — patience has been the key word.”

Lily Oliver led in scoring for the Warriors with 15 points, followed by Lily Werntgen with 10. Larissa Daigle contributed 8 points toward the Fort Kent win. 

“Larissa Daigle got 7 boards for us and between Lily Oliver and Mia Voisine there were 10 steals,” Massey said. 

For Katahdin, Hunter Hartsgrove had a game high 17 points. Makayla Hartsgrove scored 10 points and Maizy Cullen chipped in another 5.

Massey said the Cougars proved formidable opponents. 

“They offered us a solid matchup, especially with the Hartsgroves providing solid board cleanup and shooting on the perimeter. We were able to contain and execute our offense which is what kept us ahead,” Massey said.
