The Medomak Valley girls basketball team played like a team that desperately needed a win to get its train — that had been chugging along toward the postseason — back on track on Thursday night, Feb. 1 at home against Camden Hills of Rockport.

The Panthers got a combined 43 points from top scorers Gabby DePatsy and Sadie Cohen, which helped the hosts pull away from the Windjammers early in the second half en route to a lopsided 67-28 high school court win.

The victory was Medomak Valley’s highest scoring output of the season, in addition to its largest margin of victory (39 points).

The Panthers led 16-12 after the first quarter — after DePatsy banked in a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer — and 33-19 at halftime. The hosts the blew the game open with a 20-4 third-quarter run to take a 53-23 lead after three quarters.

DePatsy poured in 26 points, while Cohen added 17 — to go along with 11 rebounds, eight steals and six assists — to key the Medomak Valley offense.

“I never have any idea of how much I’m scoring or how many rebounds,” said Cohen. “I can’t even guess stats when I’m playing. But at halftime coach’s brother is our stat guy and he came down and told coach and he said, ‘If you have a really good half you could get a triple-double.’”

Cohen did not quite get there, but she was just as happy with the win.

“We’ve had five games in eight days and we went on a four-game losing streak, so it was really nice to get a win tonight, especially with a bunch of people here for the doubleheader,” said Cohen. “It was really exciting.”

DePatsy, who has been consistently strong all season, agreed.

“We had a good night,” she said. “It was a great game [and] everyone contributed. We really needed a win after coming off four losses in a row.”

Kayla Donlin also scored eight points for the hosts, while Abby Lash added four and Cheyenne Nash, Maddy White, Aubrey Schaeffer, Hallie Kunesh, Paige Powell and Lydia Simmons netted two.

Lauren Miller led Camden Hills with nine points, while MiAe DeWaard added five; Nicole Brown, four; Seanna Montgomery, three; Anya Babb-Brott, Audrey Bowman and Mya Wiley, two; and Laticia Billings, one.

The Panthers finished 11-of-16 (69 percent) from the foul line, while the Windjammers were 8-of-22 (36 percent).

Medomak Valley also defeated host Camden Hills 59-53 earlier this season in a much more competitive game in Rockport.

Cohen said after Medomak Valley started the campaign 8-1, before it stumbled of late, and she hoped Thursday’s win will light a spark under the Panthers with two regular-season games left to play.

“If we play like we did tonight, hopefully we can win out and hopefully that’ll put us in the 4-5 spot [for the Class A North playoffs],” she said. “That’s where we want to be. We play a lot better when we’re having fun and everything comes together.”

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class A North, Medomak Valley (10-6, 52.6543 points) is seventh, while Camden Hills (2-13, 7.2840 points) is 10th. Hampden Academy (14-2, 124.6914 points) is first in the 12-team region. The top eight teams qualify for the playoffs.
