For the second time in seven days, Hermon had Oceanside's number. Of course, the Hawks have had all high school boys basketball opponents' numbers in their 11 straight wins to start the season.

The host Hawks had beaten the Mariners 63-41 on Jan. 12 and, just six days later, traveled to Rockland to upend Oceanside 51-41 on Thursday night, Jan. 18.

Thursday's affair was a makeup from Saturday, Jan. 13, while the Jan. 12 game was a makeup from Dec. 23.

Thursday's court encounter between the two tall, athletic and quick opponents was tight throughout, before the Hawks pulled away down the stretch for the 10-point victory.

Hermon led 13-11 after one quarter before Oceanside grabbed a 20-19 halftime edge. The Hawks flew to a 36-33 advantage after three quarters, and that margin would have been six if not for a long 3-pointer at the buzzer by Jack Lombardo on a shot taken near the sideline in front of the scorer's table.

For the Hawks, Isaac Varney tallied 17 points, Keenan Marseille, 12; Garrett Trask, eight; Cody Hawes, seven; Jacob Godfrey, four; and Jordan Bishop, three. Hermon netted two 3-pointers and made 7-of-9 free (78 percent).

Godfrey proved a shot-blocking and rebounding machine for Hermon, while the visitors had a bundle of players who could seemingly jump to the rafters. Marseille had two breakaway slam dunks and Godfrey missed on another dunk attempt.

For the Mariners, Mike Norton Jr. tallied 14 points; Lombardo, 12; Cooper Wirkala, 11; and Trevor Reed and Josh Peaco, two. Oceanside netted all four free throws it attempted and the squad connected on five treys, three from Wirkala and two from Lombardo.

Statistically, Reed (5 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals), Wirkala (4 rebounds), Norton (11 rebounds), Peaco (5 rebounds), Lombardo (2 rebounds, 2 assists) and Leo Reid (3 rebounds) led the charge.

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Class B North, Oceanside (6-5, 35.2469 points) is fifth, while Hermon (11-0, 71.1728 points) is first in the 16-team region. The top 11 teams qualify for the playoffs.
