PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Zach Leal, York: Leal scored 23 points with eight rebounds, five assists and four steals as the Wildcats beat Traip Academy, 67-34. In a win over Cape Elizabeth last week, Leal scored 18 points.

HONORABLE MENTION

Anthony DiMauro, Boothbay Region: DiMauro had 14 of his game-high 20 points in the fourth quarter as the Seahawks rallied past Dirigo 56-44 in a game between highly ranked teams in Western 'C'.

John Murray, Medomak Valley: Murray scored 27 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead the Panthers (12-2) to a 65-43 victory against Maranacook. Last Friday, the 6-foot-7 center scored 28 points in a win over Leavitt.

Chris Robicheaw, Cape Elizabeth: Robicheaw scored 16 of his game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter as the Capers beat Wells 80-75 to avenge a five-point loss to the Warriors three weeks ago

BOYS' AREA TOP 10

5. Bonny Eagle

6. Deering

7. York

8. Scarborough

9. Brunswick

10. Thornton Academy

Amero said baseball may be his best sport because he has a good command of his pitches.

Worster was also an all-East-West Conference golfer last season.

DUE TO LIMITED seating at York High for next Tuesday's 7 p.m. home game against Falmouth, there will be an advance sale of tickets.

They can be purchased tonight prior to and during the game against Cape Elizabeth, and in the main office from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets are $4 for adults, and $2 for students and seniors. Family passes will be honored but they have to have a ticket.

Falmouth (15-0) and York (14-1) are ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in Western Class B. Falmouth beat York 71-51 on Jan. 3.

YARMOUTH HAS had an up-and-down season but the Clippers, the defending Class B state champions, are playing their best basketball down the stretch.

The Clippers (9-6) have won four straight and rank eighth in the Heal point standings.

There was naturally going to be an adjustment period after graduating Josh Britten, the Maine Sunday Telegram Player of the Year for the 2011-12 season, forward Chris Knaub and guard Sam Torres.

Yarmouth beat seventh- ranked Greely 60-53 on Tuesday night. Christian Henry, a starter last season, led the Clippers with 20 points and junior David Murphy added 17.

In a victory against Traip Academy last Friday night, Murphy scored 26 to equal a career high. Murphy had five 3-pointers. 

THE NO. 1 RANKING in Western Class A is very much up for grabs with three games remaining.

Portland, South Portland and Deering have taken turns at No. 1.

South Portland moved to No. 1 for the second time in eight days with its victory against Deering on Tuesday, but Portland moved into a tie for the top spot with the Red Riots via its win over Cheverus on Wednesday night.

Deering has been No. 1 but the Rams, losers of two straight, have dipped to fourth while steadily improving Westbrook has climbed to third.

There are three teams with 12-3 records. Portland and South Portland are 13-2.

Portland plays at South Portland on Tuesday with the winner likely gaining the top spot for the tournament.

The Bulldogs close the regular season with Deering next Friday while South Portland plays Cheverus.
