Desirae Dumais scored 11 points and the Oak Hill Raiders defeated Wiscasset 56-23 in girls basketball action Wednesday night in Wiscasset.

Dumais led a balanced offensive attack where everyone on the team registered at least a point. Oak Hill now stands at 2-2 and ranked ninth in Class B South. Wiscasset (0-5) was playing its second of three consecutive games against winning Class B programs.

Wiscasset was never in this game. An anemic first half saw the Lady Wolverines outscored 27-6. Junior Sydnie Thayer played an aggressive defensive half as she grabbed five rebounds and swiped six steals to try to spark her club, but it wasn’t enough.

Wiscasset played a better second half but still was outscored 29-17 the rest of the way. Grace Webber led Wiscasset with nine points, four rebounds and two steals while Maeve Blodgett added five points, four rebounds, and two steals. Oak Hill went to the foul line 28 times to Wiscasset’s 12.

The Wiscasset girls next travel to Spruce Mountain for a Friday night game at 5:30 p.m. for the junior varsity and 7 p.m. for varsity — subject to weather.
