Dragons Drop Barn Burner To Fort Kent
 
The Woodland Dragons have a 10-1 mark through Monday’s contest and are still atop the Class D Heal Point System. On Tuesday a solid Class C Fort Kent traveled to Baileyville to face the Dragons for the first time on this season. In the prelims at home last season Woodland took a 2 point victory to earn a birth in the Northern Maine Class C Championships in Bangor. Monday afternoon it was another thriller as Fort Kent led after 8 minutes 23-15 and then extended their control to a 37-23-advantage midway. The Dragons had a superb 3rd frame holding their guests to a single basket, as they got within 4 points with 8 minutes remaining. In the final eight Drew Hayward took charge nailing 11 points earning a 50-50 overtime period. While the overtime was being realized the Dragons were losing players to 5 fouls and in the 4 minute OT the fifth Woodland player went out of the game. The bench played tough, but it was too much as they lost on 8 made free throws 58-52. Drew paced his squad with 24 points, Sabre Phelps hit 9, and Justin Worden added 12.
