WALDOBORO — As it had twelve previous times this winter, the Oceanside girls basketball team used its entire arsenal of offensive and defensive weapons on Wednesday night, Feb. 2 to pull away from Medomak Valley, which tried to slow the visitors roll to stay competitive, but, ultimately, were no match for the unbeaten Mariners.

Oceanside notched lucky win number 13 of the 2021-22 campaign — and 26th straight over two seasons — by using its array of skills, including the inside game of Bailey Breen and outside game of Audrey Mackie.

The Mariners also received strong contributions from other team members en route to a 62-27 high school court win.

Medomak Valley dropped to 10-5 on the campaign.

The Panthers hoped to slow the pace and pull the Mariners out of their zone defense, but that plan, while effective to keep things close early, did not hold as the visitors simply had too much overall talent.

Oceanside, which has outscored opponents 862-416 (66-32 average) in 13 games, remains unbeaten and second in Class B South behind also undefeated Wells.

Wednesday’s game also included Mackie’s crowd-erupting, beyond-midcourt, three-pointer at the buzzer to end the second quarter, an electrifying shot that came about a week after Medomak Valley’s Patrick McKenney drilled a three-quarter-court shot to end the half in a game against Camden Hills on the same court.

On Wednesday, the Mariners led 18-7, 27-14 and 41-22 at the quarter breaks.

For the Mariners, the 6-foot 2 1/2-inch Breen finished with 27 points, as she made 13 field goals, many on beautiful lob passes from teammates over the Panther defense where Breen finished on either side of the rim. Mackie added 16 points, including four three-pointers, while Abby Waterman added seven; Sophia Daggett and Anna Kingsbury, four; Ahlivia Morris, three; and Caitlyn Lamb, one.
