It was a busy recent few days on the hardwood for Midcoast high school basketball teams Thursday through Monday, Jan. 25-29, as Medomak Valley, Oceanside, North Haven and Vinalhaven passed, dribbled and shot for late-season wins.

The Vinalhaven girls remained undefeated after a pair of wins over Buckfield, while the Viking boys were swept by the Bucks. The North Haven girls split on the weekend over neighboring Islesboro, while the Oceanside boys earned a lopsided win over Waterville.

The Medomak Valley boys also have gone 3-0 in their last three games against Lawrence of Fairfield, Brunswick and Lincoln Academy of Newcastle, while the Panther girls finished 0-3 against the Bulldogs, Dragons and Eagles, respectively.
