GREELY — Anna DeWolfe scored 31 points to lead Greely to a 70-45 win over York in a Class A girls’ basketball game on Tuesday night.

DeWolfe scored 18 points in the second half and also added eight rebounds and six assists.

“Playing as a team is our biggest thing. Moving the ball, we have so many scorers, so if a team focuses on one of our scorers then there’s so many other scorers to step up,” said DeWolfe.

Greely (15-2), despite having a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, did not let up. The Rangers won the final quarter by a 21-8 margin.

“I thought (DeWolfe) did a really nice job of controlling that pace,” said Greely Coach Todd Flaherty. “She just played a fantastic second half. I don’t think she’s played a better half this year than that.”

After York (10-7) jumped out to a 6-2 lead early in the first quarter, Greely went on a 19-5 run which spilled into the 5:16 mark in the second quarter.

Greely went into halftime with a 28-22 lead.

The Rangers played with intense pressure on defense, racking up 11 steals on the night.

“I think defensively we did a nice job of switching on – (York does) a lot of dribble handoffs and they run stuff off the high post – I thought overall we did a nice job on that, taking away some of the offense they like to run,” said Flaherty.

After falling behind by 10 in the third quarter, the Wildcats were able to pull within four at 38-34. But the Rangers answered with a 9-0 run, keeping control until Nina Howe hit a 3-pointer for York with one minute remaining in the quarter.

“The energy was great and that started on defense,” said DeWolfe.

Howe led York with 14 points.

“(Howe) worked hard and her defensive assignment most of the way was on DeWolfe. That’s quite an assignment,” said York Coach Steve Freeman.

Greely freshman guard Camille Clement scored 19 points.

These two teams played on Jan. 9 in York, with Greely pulling out a narrow 56-55 victory.

“I’m sure (Greely was) out to prove a point that the one-point game down in York was a fluke. They played tough, they played aggressive on both ends of the floor and we didn’t respond,” said Freeman.

Greely has not lost since a 65-63 defeat at Brunswick on Dec. 29.

“York is a good team, so that was a really good win for us,” said Flaherty.

As the top seed in the south, Greely will look to close out the regular season strong on Thursday at Fryeburg Academy and head into the tournament playing its best basketball.

“We’re just trying to tighten everything,” said Flaherty. “We’re not going to do anything different, just trying to get better at everything we do right now and clean up the little silly mistakes that are unforced.

“I think we’re getting better at that and we’ll hopefully play or best in the tournament and see what happens.”
