The 2017-18 MPA basketball schedule began on Friday for the entire state. In our local area the only action on tap was at Eastport where the Shead Tigerettes hosted the Hodgdon Hawks. Both teams were flat in the opening eight with Shead taking a 3-0 edge. The Tigerettes kept the lead through the second and third frames with a 5 and 4 point advantage respectively. In the final stanza Hodgdon closed the gap and took a single point lead at the buzzer for a 29-28 win. Cassidy Wilder lead all players with 14 points and Madison Green collected 7 points.
