Two of the Midcoast’s most talented high school basketball teams were in hardwood action on Tuesday, Jan. 18 and, to no surprise, the Panthers and Mariners came away with lopsided victories.

The Medomak Valley boys held court at home and emerged with a 76-49 win over Maranacook of Readfield, while the Oceanside girls remained unbeaten with a 69-30 road victory over Lincoln Academy of Newcastle.

The following is a recap of games:


Medomak Valley 76, Maranacook 49

At Waldoboro Jan. 18, the Panthers got a yeoman effort from stalwart Trevor Brown as the hosts prowled past the Black Bears. Medomak Valley led 25-15, 46-23 and 68-34 at the quarter breaks.

Brown, a senior who reached 1,000 points for his career in the team’s previous game, poured in 30 points — all in the first three stanzas — to pace the Panthers and scored largely at will throughout the game, including a buzzer-beater to end the first quarter that put the hosts up by double-digits.
