Camden Hills over Cape

If Cape Elizabeth was to have any chance beating Camden Hills, it had to have a big game from Theo Bowe while also limiting Camden's Tyler McFarland. The Capers could only do that for one half, as Bowe's 36 points weren't enough as McFarland and Keegan Pieri led the Windjammers to a 68-59 win in the Boys Class B State Title game.

Camden Hills got off to a 8-0 start, and it was looking like this game wouldn't be a game. Then Bowe took over, scoring 12 points as Cape led 14-12 at the end of the 1st quarter.

Bowe then started the second with a 3-pointer, as it looked like Cape would pull away. The Windjammers pulled back into it behind Pieri's four big baskets. It was 34-31 Cape on top at halftime.

The Bowe vs. McFarland duel we were all expecting finally took place in the second half. Bowe was up to 28 points by the end of the 3rd quarter, and McFarland came back to life with 10 points. Pieri chipped in with 6, and Camden Hills kept the rest of the Capers quiet, as the Windjammers led 49-44 after three quarters.

McFarland had 9 more points in the fourth quarter to finish with 24 in the game. Bowe had 8 points and Cam Brown 7 as the Capers kept it interesting. Joel Gabriele finished it off for Camden Hills, however, with two big steals and four big free throws as Camden Hills pulled away in the last 2 minutes. McFarland was named the Capt'n Eli's Soda Player of the Game after his monster second half. After watching his team lose in overtime in the State game last year, "T-Mac" was not to be denied on this night. It was a magical end to a magical run for McFarland, Pieri, and Gabriele at Camden Hills.
