That game saw the Eagles snap a streak of six straight double-digit losses to the Trojans, and the fun was only beginning.In the Class C boys’ ranks, one of the upsets of the year came courtesy of the Sumner Tigers, who got a basket from Colby Lee with one second left to top No. 1 Central Aroostook 54-53. The Class C bracket also marked the end of an incredible run for the George Stevens Academy boys, but not before GSA rolled past Calais and topped Mattanawcook Academy in overtime.On the girls’ side, MDI claimed the Class B North title with wins over Maine Central Institute, Winslow and Waterville before falling to Gray-New Gloucester in the state title game.
