Wiscasset boys basketball preseason continues

Posted:  Thursday, December 7, 2017 - 7:00am

On Dec. 4, Wiscasset traveled to Freeport to play the Falcons. The Falcons won, 93-25. This game was very lopsided and didn’t seem to be much of a challenge for Freeport. Freeport’s leading scorers were Eriksen Shra with 20, Toby Holt with 19, Sully Smith with 14, and Shea Wagner with 13.

Wiscasset was led by junior Chris Loyola and his seven points. Senior Ronald Drake had five, and freshman Dylan Orr had four. Juniors Josh Gabriele, Haiden Dunning and Matt Chapman each had two points, as well as Kobe Carrier. Wiscasset seemed to struggle against the class B playoff team in this matchup. Wiscasset Head Coach Seth Farrington has told players multiple times that these games are to build up for the season opener against Carrabec. He intentionally scheduled every preseason game against bigger schools with good teams in hopes of improving his roster during the preseason and preparing players for the grind of a full season.

On Friday, Dec. 8, we will find out if this preparation has worked as Wiscasset will travel to Carrabec for the season opener. Junior varsity will play at 5:30 p.m. and varsity at 7 p.m.
