In a Class B title game featuring three 1,000-point scorers, Greely High’s trio of fearless sophomore shooters and its unsung point guard made the championship difference.

The Rangers put on a second-quarter shooting clinic Friday night, making all five of their 3-point attempts to claim a 23-point halftime lead and were never threatened in beating Presque Isle 56-39 at the Cross Insurance Arena.

“When they’re falling the confidence obviously goes up,” said Moira Train, who made three of the team’s Class B championship game-record nine 3-pointers. “Coach definitely put that on us, to shoot.”

Greely (20-2) won its fourth Class B title and first since 2004.

In the Rangers’ 27-5 second quarter, Train (team-high 14 points) made two 3-pointers. Fellow sophomores Isabel Porter (12) and Molly Chapin each nailed one as did senior co-captain Haley Felkel.

“We just practice them and they know that I’ll never criticize them at all for shooting,” Greely Coach Joel Rogers said.

Senior center Ashley Storey, a 1,000-point scorer and Miss Maine Basketball finalist, used good hands and quick moves to add eight of her 13 points in the second quarter. Greely led 33-10 at the half.

“It’s good that we don’t rely on one person and everyone comes out ready to go,” Storey said.

Presque Isle (19-3), the champion in 2012 and 2013, scored on its first two possessions to take a 5-0 lead. The Wildcats shot 2 of 21 the rest of the half and committed eight turnovers. Its two 1,000-point senior scorers, Hannah Graham (3 points) and Krystal Kingsbury, could not get untracked. Kingsbury finished with 18 points, all in the second half.

“Offensively we just played timidly in the first half,” Presque Isle Coach Jeff Hudson said.

Graham, a 5-foot-10 senior and Miss Maine finalist, was out of school Tuesday, Wednesday and half of Thursday with the flu.

“Hannah Graham was really sick this week and she gave it everything she had, but that wasn’t the real Hannah Graham out there tonight,” Hudson said. “She gutted it out and did everything she could, but it’s disappointing the rest of the state didn’t get to see the Hannah that we know.”

Greely point guard Sarah Felkel didn’t make Graham feel any better. Felkel relentlessly chased Graham and was in her face on each of her six misses. Felkel played a similar role in the Western Maine final against Cape Elizabeth standout Montana Braxton.

“Braxton is as good an athlete as Graham and I told (Felkel) before the game, ‘when we go man (defense), you’ve got her,’ ” Rogers said.

“Sarah is just a great point guard,” Storey said. “She sees the floor really well and is a smart player, and she’s really the person that’s not really talked about, which is sad because she’s the person who does all our work.”

Train and Porter finished their four-game playoff run with a combined 91 points. Porter scored in double figures in three playoff games and made eight 3-pointers. Train led the Rangers in scoring in the regional semifinal and state final, and made nine playoff 3s.

“Our team is just so supportive of us that we’re just so confident in our shots and how we play,” Porter said.

Chapin, the most reluctant shooter of the three key sophomores, made two timely 3s. Her first gave the Rangers their initial double-digit lead at 19-7. The other came right after Emily Lagerstrom (9 points) of Presque Isle hit a 3-pointer that cut Greely’s lead to 16 points with six minutes left.

The Rangers’ defense and ball security (six turnovers) were also championship worthy.

“We had really good ball movement. To hold them to just 10 points in the first half is unbelievable,” Rogers said. “Isabel was Isabel again off the bench and Ashley dominated the defensive board, and that was really the game.”
