The local Calais and Woodland travel teams played through six other teams to each earn a birth in the championship game at CHS on Sunday. It was a see-saw battle from the tip, as Calais jumped to an 11-7 advantage after the opening frame only to have the Woodland girls battle back to earn a 21-20 lead midway. Woodland added one after three periods to take a 31-29 margin. A big 3-pointer by Faith Tirrell towards the end of the final stanza made the gap that Woodland couldn’t overcome, as both teams played tough to a 44-41 finish. In the win top scorers were Prue Maxwell scoring 11, Sydney Hatch 10, Faith Tirrell 9, Sydney Farrar 7, and Katie Erskine 6. For the future Lady Dragons Jennie Cox led all scorers with 20-points, Shawna Monk hit 8, and Angel Andrews added 6.
