PORTLAND, Maine — One day before the biggest game of her career, coach Steve Freeman pulled aside his leading scorer, Natalie Herbold, to try to gauge her nerves.

Herbold, a sophomore on the Marshwood High School girls basketball team, had been shaky in the team’s first playoff game, a close win on Monday. Now, she and her teammates were preparing to play the best team in Class A South in the state’s biggest venue.

“I didn’t know, speaking with her, if she was going to relax,” said Freeman. “But she did. She just went out and played.”

They all did.

No, the fourth-seeded Hawks didn’t get to celebrate an upset for the ages against Greely at the Cross Insurance Center on Wednesday. Their defense kept them in the game into the fourth quarter but their offense couldn’t produce enough in a 46-35 loss.

But they sure made it interesting.

“At the Expo I couldn’t get out of my head,” said Herbold, who scored a team-high eight points. “Here, we just calmed down for some reason.”

Top-seeded Greely (19-1) will face No. 2 Brunswick (17-3) for the regional championship here on Saturday. Standout Anna DeWolfe was held to 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting and missed time with foul trouble, but freshman Brooke Obar netted 13 points for the Rangers, including three big 3-pointers.

“I was really impressed with the way they were attacking us,” said Greely coach Todd Flaherty. “I thought they played very hard and had a heck of a game plan.”

The Hawks (15-5) had been overmatched on the boards during a 65-44 loss to the Rangers in South Berwick last month. But they cleaned that up entirely in the first half, grabbing six more boards than their opponent and trailing just 21-18 at the break.

A 3-pointer by freshman Angelina Bisson put them ahead briefly midway through the second quarter. Herbold’s baseline pull-up was the last basket in an opening two quarters that was ruled by defense, the Hawks throwing a few different looks at the Rangers, including guard Courtney Thim shadowing DeWolfe in a version of a box-and-one.

“We knew they were uncomfortable,” said Freeman. “You could feel it from their fans and you could feel it from their team, with their body language. They weren’t comfortable. … We were flying high.”

“We knew we could do it; we just wanted to prove it to everyone else,” said Thim. “So it was like validation. But we also knew we had to keep going.”

Greely scored the first five points of the third quarter to go ahead by eight. Back came the Hawks, who got a follow from Elora Montgomery and two Celine Lawrence free throws to pull within 28-24.

But as their defense was keeping them close, their offense was being kept in check by the Rangers, who wouldn’t allow consecutive baskets again until the end.

“They definitely took away our 3-ball tonight,” said Thim. “We missed a couple shots that could have gotten us over the hump.”

With three starters saddled with three fouls, Greely was content to pull the ball back and slow the game down. A seven-point lead at the end of the third grew to as many as 13 in the fourth, the team finishing 14-of-17 from the foul line.

“We did some things we haven’t had to do all year,” said Flaherty.

Bisson, the former JV player who scored 16 in the quarterfinal win over Fryeburg on Monday, was the team’s second-leading scorer with six. The Hawks shot 12-of-50 from the floor (24 percent) and lost the turnover battle 13-10.

The last chance they had came after Alicia Richards hit a 3-pointer to make it 36-29 with a little under six minutes left. But they wouldn’t score again for more than three minutes.

“We just never got over the top,” said Freeman. “We missed a couple bunnies and missed a couple plays that were there. They did a good job taking away the 3-pointer from us; we didn’t have a chance to get many up and that’s part of our game.”

Marshwood, whose roster is dominated by sophomores, should return every member of its rotation next year, losing just two seniors: guard Hannah Fife and co-captain Taylor Tarr.

Plus this valuable experience.

“Now we’re hungry to win next year,” said Herbold. “It’s really something to look forward to.”

“We don’t want to be satisfied coming up here and giving them a game,” said Freeman. “We want this to make them hungry to come back next year. I thought they handled the atmosphere and handled the moment. We just got beat by a better team.”

Seacoast Roundup: GIRLS BASKETBALL: Marshwood 57, Noble 26

Feb 10, 2017

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Senior Taylor Tarr shared team-high honors with eight points, and fellow senior Hannah Fife played some tremendous defense on Noble standout Amy Fleming to help the Hawks close the regular season at 14-4 in Class A South. The Knights closed at 1-17 in Class AA South.

Natalie Herbold also scored eight in the win for Marshwood, which will likely be the No. 4 seed and play a quarterfinal game at the Portland Expo on Feb. 20.

Sam Couture hit three 3-pointers and led Noble with nine points. Fleming scored three.

Hawks, Noble Gear up for Regional Wrestling Battle

The race to the Maine Class A state wrestling championship starts this Saturday at Massabesic High School in Waterboro, Maine.

The site of the Class A South regional, defending regional champion Marshwood and rival Noble will use this Saturday’s meet as a steppingstone to the state meet.

In short, each team will try and qualify as many wrestlers as possible in order to be at their very deepest and best for the Class A meet on Feb. 18 at Camden Hills.

Marshwood and Noble were 1-2 at last year’s regional meet, and should battle one other again this year with Sanford in the mix. At the state meet, Skowhegan captured the crown, the first won by a Class A North school since 1984. It also ended Marshwood’s four-year reign as state champions.

The Hawks are the favorite Saturday. They will fill all weight classes and coach Matt Rix expects no less than 11 wrestlers to advance.

“Marshwood’s the frontrunner,” said Noble coach Kip DeVoll. “We don’t have the horses to compete with them at the regional level.”

Noble, which will likely not have a wrestler at 195 and heavyweight, could advance as many as 10.

DeVoll said the complexion could change at the state meet where the northern schools have some very good wrestlers in the upper weight classes.

Marshwood (24-0 dual meet record) wrestled Noble twice late in the season, each time coming away with dual wins (47-23, 41-27). Rix said little attention can be paid to those wins when referencing the regional this Saturday.

“(Noble’s) a good tournament team,” Rix said.

The seeding meeting was scheduled for Thursday, but the snow moved it to Friday night. Rix expected to have as may as six No. 1 seeds: Matt Thompson (120 pounds), Brad Beaulieu (138), Matt Caverly (152), Dylan Strong (170), Austin Locke (182) and James Thompson (195).

He also has several wrestlers expected to be seeded at No. 2 or 3: Brandon Sandler (106), Liam Coomey (113), David Spinney (126), Kyle Glidden (132) and Zach Eastman (heavyweight).

“We just have to get them through,” Rix said.

Beaulieu is a three-time state champ and recently broke the career state record for wins held by former teammate Cody Hughes.

Noble will follow the lead of seniors Jake Martel (132), Austin Shorey (145) and Kasey Rogers (152). Martel is a defending state champ. Shorey won two years ago as a sophomore, and was second last year at 120 and third in the New Englands.

Shorey and Martel are likely No. 1 seeds. Part of that depends, in DeVoll’s mind, if Marshwood’s Beaulieu stays at 138 or moves down to 132.

Other Knights who could be high seeds are Sam Martel at 106 (1 or 2), Duncan McGilvery at 120 (No. 2), John Grenier at 138 (1 or 2) and Rogers at 152 (2 to 4).

Also in the running to advance to the state meet are Jaden Balcewicz (113), Joe Pilecki (126), Colin Cyr (160) and Hil Keisker (170).

“We should take second place unless we have a total meltdown,” DeVoll said. “Marshwood has too many Nos. 1 and 2 seeds.”

DeVoll added that snow has already impacted practices this week, leading to several cancellations. There is snow in the forecast for Saturday, so there is the potential for the regional meet to be postponed.

NOTES: Rix picked up his 600th career coaching win during last Saturday’s meet at Westbrook with Noble. … Eastman earned his 100th career win last Saturday. Caverly and Glidden collected their milestone wins earlier this year.
