BRUNSWICK

This is the final week of the high school basketball regular season. Mother Nature doesn’t seem to care.

If last week’s blizzard and Friday’s snowstorm weren’t enough of a 1-2 punch, Monday’s foot of the white stuff certainly didn’t help matters, with Mainers trying to find places to simply put all of the snow.

As for the high school basketball schedule, the situation is dire, with teams having to play three games, or even, four, over the next few days just to complete the 18- game schedule. Of course, that is dependent on what Mother Nature throws our way on Thursday, with forecasts calling for another large, plowable snowstorm.

The last countable day for basketball is Friday. The Maine Principals Association may need to extend that deadline to Saturday, which has reportedly been discussed.

At Brunswick, the Dragons will play three games in four days. The boys visit Oxford Hills tonight, host “Battle of the Bridge” rival Mt. Ararat on Thursday and Lawrence on Friday, while the Dragon girls are home against Oxford tonight, host Mt. Ararat on Thursday and visit undefeated Lawrence to conclude the regular season.

Mt. Ararat is in the same boat, with the boys at Lewiston tonight, at Brunswick Thursday and home against Bangor on Friday, probably needing two wins to get into the postseason, while the girls face a must-win tonight at home against Lewiston and visit Brunswick Thursday. Because the Eagle girls were able to get their game in at Bangor on Saturday, Mt. Ararat only has those two games left, but tonight’s game with the Blue Devils, with Mt. Ararat in ninth and Lewiston in 10th in Eastern Maine Class A, is for a playoff spot.

Morse and Freeport are on schedule, with the Shipbuilder boys and girls facing Camden Hills tonight (boys home, girls away) and Oceanside on Thursday (boys away, girl home), while the Falcons face Kennebunk tonight (boys away, girls home) and Yarmouth on Friday (both at home).

The Lisbon and Wiscasset girls are on the road to close the regular season, with the Greyhounds at Oak Hill tonight (varsity doubleheader) and St. Dom’s on Wednesday (boys) and Thursday (girls), while the Wolverines head to Madison tonight (another varsity doubleheader) and Monmouth Academy on Wednesday (boys) and Thursday (girls).

The Hyde boys will be busy. The Phoenix host Arthur R. Gould (Wednesday) and Waynflete (Thursday), plus have Monday’s makeup against Valley to schedule. The Phoenix girls also head to Valley this week, and visit Temple Academy on Wednesday.

The most challenging schedule belongs to the Richmond boys. The Bobcats, after Monday’s postponement against Buckfield, the third time that has happened, are forced to play a stretch of four games in four days, beginning tonight with North Yarmouth Academy. The saving grace is the other three games are at home too, Wednesday against Valley, Thursday versus Old Orchard Beach and Friday, hopefully, against Buckfield.

The Richmond girls are also busy, with Valley on Wednesday, Old Orchard Beach on Thursday and Buckfield on Friday.

Other events

Saturday’s scheduled Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference wrestling meet was postponed. A decision is supposed to be made on Wednesday with regards to a makeup, or if the event will be canceled all together, with Regionals set for Saturday and the State meets the following weekend. Eastern A boys (Mt. Ararat, Brunswick) head to Oxford Hills on Saturday, Western B (Morse) is at Wells, while Western C (Lisbon, Wiscasset) is at Penobscot Valley.

Boys ice hockey has some time to make things up, with the last countable game Feb. 19. But, Brunswick and Mt. Ararat/Lisbon still have six games left each.

The Brunswick girls hockey team claimed the No. 6 seed in the East and will visit No. 3 Greely on Wednesday at 6:50 p.m. at the Falmouth Family Ice Center.

The State Cheering Championships are set for Saturday at the Augusta Civic Center, the KVAC Swimming and Indoor Track Championships are this upcoming weekend, and Nordic skiers hit the slopes for the KVAC Championships on Wednesday and Saturday.
