Brewer stuns Camden Hills with strong second half

ROCKPORT – Games like this one are the reason we play high school sports. On any given night, it does not matter who is supposed to be the better team, who is higher in the standings. What matters is who comes to play, who wants it more, and Tuesday night the Witches of Brewer High School were that team.

Trailing by six at the halftime break the Brewer boys came out fired up and took over the game in the third quarter outscoring the Windjammers 26-6 giving them enough of a cushion to hold off the Windjammers in the final quarter to take the 74-61 win.

With the win, Brewer moves to ninth place with one game left against Mt. Blue. The top eight teams move to the playoffs. Camden Hills fell to the fourth spot in the Maine Principles Association Heal Point Standings. They will travel to Morse of Bath Thursday, Feb. 8 for their final regular season game.

Brewer had four players in double figures, Kobe Rogerson led the way with 25 points; Isaac Cummings 14; Nate Laskey 12; and Brandon Glidden 11. Other scorers were Jaycob Miller with eight; and Cameron Monroe and Sean Neal two each. The Witches were 16-of-21 (76 percent) from the foul line.

For Camden Hills, John Curtin had 18 points; Jeremy Fraser 16; Noah Heidorn and Daniel Peabody eight each; Ionut Lodge four; Michael Kremin three; and Ethan Ford and Michael McGeady two each. Camden Hills was 7-of-10 (70 percent) from the foul line.
