On Thursday, Dec. 21, Wiscasset hosted Spruce Mountain in the 85-28 loss the Wolverines endured. This game was very one-sided, and seemed over from the start. The first half was 52-8 in favor of Spruce Mountain and was not pretty. Luckily for Wiscasset, it made the second half a little bit more competitive, only getting outscored 33-20.

Spruce Mountain’s top scorers were Brett Frey with 19, Kayle Stewart with 16, and Jack Bryant with 10. Wiscasset’s scoring included senior Ronald Drake with six, freshman Dylan Orr with five, junior Matt Chapman with four, senior Kobe Carrier and sophomores Billy Pinkham and Noah Haggett with three each, and juniors Josh and Caleb Gabriele each with two.

This game was very difficult for Wiscasset as Spruce Mountain was 5-0 in class B and Wiscasset was 0-4 in class C. The main problem for Wiscasset seemed to be the press brought upon it by Spruce Mountain. Spruce Mountain improved to 6-0 with this win and Wiscasset fell to 0-5. Due to the weather, the boys’ next game at Madison on Saturday, Dec. 23 has been postponed. The next boys’ game will instead be on Friday, Dec. 29 at Winthrop High School.
