The win followed victories against Bucksport (50-47)on December 14, a 55-31 win over Sumner on December 18, and a 80-23 blow out against Lee Academy on December 21, In the lopsided victory over Lee, Dauk led with 25 points and Maeghan Tobey chipped in 21.
The Eagles now stand at 5-2, placing them in the middle of the northern Class C pack. Top teams Dexter (7-1) and Narraguagus (7-0) are not on the GSA schedule during regular season play. In fact, the varsity girls won’t face the top four teams in the current Heal Point Standings until—depending on the view five weeks from now—the playoff tournament in February. The season is not quite half over, and the girls have upcoming games against Class B Ellsworth on January 2 and—at home on January 9—against Piscataquis, who handed them a early season loss. Looking ahead to the second half of January, the girls host Calais, who beat them by five points in their first match up, and a rematch against Bucksport, against whom they squeezed out a three-point win.
The take-away is that it’s too early in the season to know anything for sure.
The girls face Searsport on Monday, December 28, on home court, with a 7 p.m. tip off.
