Boys Eastern Maine Class C Semi-Final Picks

4 Penquis vs. 1 Lee: Teams split on the season. Lee had the b eay road to the semif-finals with an easy 65-38 win over 8th seed Orono. Penquis had a tough game against 5th seeded Fort Kent winning 64-61 after having a good lead.

Lee more athletic, Penquis better defensively. Fouls will be an important part of this game. Keeping out of foul trouble will be key. Good rivalry as schools know each other well. Also, maybe some Private School vs. Public School issues make more good motivation and additional rivalry.

My Pick Lee as they have to much athleticism. Penquis will have to control tempo if they want to win and limit Lee’s Possessions.

Upset Bracket Semi-Final 7 Houlton vs. 6 MA. Both teams upset winners of higher seeded teams. Houlton upset 2 seed Sumner while MA upset 3rd seed Calais. Houlton has the size, MA has speed and an excellent shooting guard. Who was better Sumner or Calais???? Your guess. This is a hard pickem.oulton uses their size they win, if they don’t they lose just as Medomak Valley and PI did today in class B. They didn’t use their size to there advantage so they lost.

I have always liked size over speed and quickness if you use your size.

Houlton uses their size and they upset higher seeded MA/
