AUGUSTA — The Cinderella run for the Skowhegan High boys’ basketball team continued Saturday night.

The Indians, led by 17 points from senior guard Brendan Curran, took the lead for good with under three minutes to play and held on for a 54-53 win over previously unbeaten and top-seeded Medomak Valley in a Class A North quarterfinal at the Augusta Civic Center.

No. 8 Skowhegan (11-9), which needed double overtime to escape the preliminary round against Brewer, will face No. 5 Messalonskee in the regional semifinals Wednesday.

Curran was one of the three Indians in double figures, with Cole Pierce and Garrett McSweeney each chipping in 11 points.

Medomak Valley (18-1) was led by 16 points from Cam Allaire.

The Panthers became the third higher-seeded team to lose in the Class A North quarterfinals. No. 2 Hampden Academy and No. 4 Gardiner also were eliminated.
