AUGUSTA — For a variety of reasons, including pandemic protocols, the North Haven basketball teams had been sidelined, essentially stuck on the island, with no way to play opponents for about a month. That all changed on Thursday, Jan. 20 at the Augusta Civic Center.

That is the venue where the Hawks faced Forest Hills of Jackman in a pair of court games. And, although the islanders came out on the short end of the lopsided high school hoop affairs, the Hawks were plenty happy to be back in the game.

The following are summaries of the contests:
