The Eastern Maine Basketball League is underway with grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8 boys and girls.
Games are played at various gyms across the area on Saturdays and Sundays.
The first game today was the 5th & 6th grade boys from Glenburn hosting the Old Town Rec 5th & 6th boys.

It was a very close game all the way with Glenburn coming back to tie the score at 50-50 to end the fourth quarter. The overtime is four minutes and Glenburn was able to hold off the Old Town boys outscoring them 9-5 to capture the 59-55 win.
Getting the names of players in a scorebook is almost always a problem so if I have them I will use them. If not I will use the players' numbers. All information is taken from the team's scorebook or league scorebook if available.
For Glenburn, I have some first names and uniform numbers. The top scorer was, #22-Jace, with 33 points, followed by Brod #24 with 20 points including three three pointers. #31 Eli and #21 Agaba three points each.
For Old Town, it looks like the numbers do not match up so I have Carter Cox, with a team-high 17 points, and Mason Frost with 11. Other player numbers do not total what should be the score.
