Wells girls win first state championship in OT over Hermon

BANGOR – The Wells girls put on a defensive show the whole game as they limited Hermon to 35 percent shooting in the first half, falling too much worse in the second half and overtime where they went 2-19 from the floor. In the end, Wells pulled out a 34-26 victory.

There may have been more turnovers than points scored in this game as both teams played very tight defense the whole game.

Grace Ramsdell led Wells with 14 points while her sister Franny Ransdell added nine and Mallory Aromando had seven to lead the team to victory.

Paige Plissey had 10 points to pace Hermon. Maddie Lebel added five; Meghan Tracy four; Sydney Gallop three; and Grace Page two.

Wells finishes the season at 16-6 while Hermon ends up at a very respectful 20-2. The Hermon girls have nothing to hang their heads about. Not many high school teams win 20 games in a season.
