Whether on the islands or off them, Midcoast high school basketball squads eyed early-season wins on Friday through Tuesday morning, Dec. 15-19, a scenario that proved a fruitful venture for the North Haven boys and Vinalhaven girls.

The Hawk boys picked up a weekend road sweep over Greater Portland Christian, as did the Viking girls in a pair of home wins over Valley of Bingham.

The Viking boys also lost a pair of games to the Cavaliers, while the Oceanside girls also fell to Mount Desert Island of Bar Harbor in a close affair.

The North Haven boys and girls were then swept in a pair of games by host Rangeley in contests Monday night and Tuesday morning.
