Capers sail by York

Cape Elizabeth were both in in to win it as they knew that top-seeded Greely was out of the tournament and either team would be the favorite to win the West. It was Cape that would still be standing at the end, as they shot their way past the Wildcats, winning 55-42.

The teams would trade baskets in the opening quarter as it was 13-11 eight minutes in. Cape was paced by Cam Brown and Henry Babcock with 4 points a piece. Zach Leal and Aaron Todd would match that for York.

Cape began to pull away in the second quarter. Liam Langaas would hit two 3-pointers for York, but the rest of the team would only score 3 points in the quarter. Chris Robicheaw and Theo Bowe would both hit a 2 and a 3, and the Capers were up 29-20 at halftime.


Cape kept it going in the second half, as they opened the third quarter on an 8-2 run. Bowe had a 3-pointer and an old-fashioned 3-point to give Cape some breathing room. York would only manage three field goals in the quarter as they couldn't break the Capers' defense. The lead was pushed to 13 heading into the final quarter.

Bowe would end any hope of a York comeback at the free throw line, hitting 4 free throws late, and finishing with 21 points. The Wildcats failed to mount a charge, and in the end, Cape just made more of their shots. The Capers will now head to the Western Maine Class B Finals, where they will face Yarmouth.
