The #1 Ellsworth Girls knew to win the Class B Girls Championship and to get back to the State Championship Game, they would have to contain Saige Evans and the high-powered Old Town Coyotes offense.

Unfortunately that plan didn't come to fruition as Evans scored a game-high 22 points and the Ellsworth Eagles were never able to sink the baskets they had made all year long.

The result was that Old Town beat Ellsworth 58-42 winning the 2024 Northern Maine Class B Championship on Friday, February 23rd at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.

Old Town led 16-10 at the end of the 1st Quarter, 35-22 at the end of the 1st Half and 48-36 at the end of the 3rd Quarter.

Saige Evans led all scorers with 22 points. Alexis Degrasse had 15 points and Makayla Emerson had 9 points including 3 3-pointers for the Coyotes. Old Town was 5-9 from the free throw line.

Ellsworth was led by Grace Jaffray with 12 points including 2 3-pointers. Lily Bean had 8 points. Elise Sargent, Addison Atherton and Sydney Mason each had 3-pointers for Ellsworth. The Eagles were 7-11 from the free throw line.

Ellsworth's season comes to an end with a 20-1 record.

Old Town now 19-2 will play #1 Oceanside, the Southern Maine Regional Champion a the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on Friday, March 1st for the State Class B Title at 6:05 p.m.
