On Friday, Dec. 8, the Wiscasset Wolverine boys lost at Carrabec, 66-44.

The game was essentially decided during the second quarter, when Carrabec outscored Wiscasset by 15 and seemed to push away. The other quarters were within single digit scoring differences.

Carrabec was led by Evan Holzworth and Alex Stafford, both with 25 points. Wiscasset’s scoring was led by Kobe Carrier with 11 points, Cedrick Loyola with eight, and Ronald Drake and Matt Chapman with seven points each. Chapman led Wiscasset with rebounding with 10, with Carrier behind him with seven, and Billy Pinkham had six. Chris Loyola managed to get five steals in this outing, and freshman Dylan Orr  had two.

Wiscasset once again seemed to struggle with turnovers, as it finished with 32. It also seemed to struggle with hitting shots, going 14 for 54 on all field goals and 3 for 24 on three-pointers. Wiscasset will look to improve in aspects such as shooting and taking care of the ball.
