MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 BANGOR — For the first time in five years, there won’t be a sea of maroon traveling from Blue Hill to the Cross Insurance Center for Championship Saturday.The George Stevens Academy boys’ basketball team fell to a 60-58 overtime defeat against Central Aroostook in Friday night’s Class C North semifinal showdown. The defeat came as the Eagles erased a 12-point second-half deficit to take a three-point lead before falling just short in the added period.“We did what we needed to do, but it just didn’t happen for us tonight,” GSA head coach Dwayne Carter said. “We showed a lot of effort in coming all the way back and giving ourselves chances. That’s all you can ask.”Although No. 4 GSA (18-3) got out to a 5-0 lead on a 3-pointer from Caden Mattson and a jumper from Teague Smallidge, Central Aroostook responded with eight of the next 10 points to pull ahead by one. The Eagles went up 13-10 late in the half on a triple from David Gadsby, but the Panthers scored the next five points to lead through one quarter of play.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textTop-ranked Central Aroostook (16-4) then pushed its lead to 23-15 with an 8-2 run to begin the second quarter. Although GSA pulled back within one possession on a 3-pointer from Mattson and a pair of free throws from Austin Snow, the Panthers finished the half on a 7-2 run to reestablish their eight-point advantage entering the break.Central Aroostook scored six of the first eight points to begin the second half before GSA used an 11-2 run to cut the deficit to 40-37. Then, with the Panthers leading by seven early in the fourth quarter, Milos Sujica scored the next 14 GSA points to give the Eagles a 51-50 lead.With 3 minutes, 8 seconds left to play, though, GSA’s momentum came to a halt as Sujica fouled out of the game. The two teams would go to overtime tied at 55, and Central Aroostook outscored the Eagles 5-3 in the added period to come away with the win.Sujica, who had 18 points to lead GSA, was joined in double figures by Caden Mattson (13 points) and David Gadsby (11 points). The exchange student from Serbia had been sidelined with a hand injury for four straight games prior to returning for the Eagles’ quarterfinal win over Fort Fairfield on Tuesday, and even then, there were doubts as to whether he would be able to play.“We played [Tuesday at 2], and he got his cast off at 11 that day,” Carter said. “He sacrificed all season for us and was really athletic and really hard to guard. … He’s been great for us, and he’s also an awesome kid.”GSA had come agonizingly close to winning the game in regulation after Central Aroostook threw away an inbound pass in the final seconds. On the ensuing play, Mattson sidestepped a defender and put up a 3-pointer that, for a few seconds, gave Carter a flashback to Jarrod Chase’s state championship-winning triple against Winthrop in 2017.“It sure looked like it was going in,” Carter said of Mattson’s shot, which rolled off the back of the rim as the clock hit zeros. “I had visions of Jarrod’s shot again.”Jacob Carvell led Central Aroostook with 24 points, and Josh Thomas added 15. Brayden Bradbury, a career 1,000-point scorer who praised the GSA defense for its toughness and ability to “clog the lanes,” contributed seven points as well as 13 rebounds and six assists.Jacob Carvell led Central Aroostook with 24 points, and Josh Thomas added 15. Brayden Bradbury, a career 1,000-point scorer who praised GSA for its defensive toughness and ability to “clog the lanes,” contributed seven points as well as 13 rebounds and six assists.“I was a little mad that they put 55 points on us in regulation, for goodness’ sake,” Central Aroostook head coach Jason Woodworth said. “We played good defense, but you’ve got to give GSA credit because they played well and played tough. It just happened to be our night tonight.”GSA will lose Šujica, Mattson, sixth man Austin Snow and bench players Gage Astbury and Ryan Mullen to graduation. Yet with Gadsby, Smallidge and starter Michael Moon set to return, Carter’s team should remain a formidable one in 2020-21.“If you look at our bench, we were still pretty young,” Carter said. “This will hurt, but I think it will fire them up to work hard and come back even better for next year.” Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio Latest Posts
