LISBON FALLS — Twice in the fourth quarter, the Lisbon High School girls basketball team cut the Boothbay lead down to five in a Mountain Valley Conference matchup on Monday.

The undefeated Seahawks managed to hang on, but not without a stern fight from the improving Greyhounds, who fell to 1-5 after a 43-35 loss.

Lisbon visits Madison on Friday at 7 p.m., while Boothbay improved to 5-0.

The Seahawks darted out to a 15-9 first-quarter lead, led 21-15 at the half and 32-24 after three.

“We looked good, but they were able to hit free throws in the fourth quarter to close it out,” said Lisbon coach Julie Petrie.

Mia Durgin led the Greyhounds with nine points, while Jasmine Le picked up seven, and Bree Sautter and Kipri Steele notched six each. Sautter also dished out five assists.

Page Brown had a game-high 13 points for the Seahawks, while Morgan Crocker finished with 12. Boothbay was 8-of-17 at the line, while Lisbon made 8-of-12.
