Home Opener Victories for Owl Girls and Boys!

Both the Lady Owls and the Owl Boys earned victories against neighboring school Wisdom High in their first matchup of the young 2011-2012 season.

In the first game of the evening, the Lady Owls cruised to a 45 - 24 victory led by outstanding defensive pressure from senior captains Nicole Cyr and Amanda Nadeau. With the two guards making multiple steals in the game, Madawaska kept the pioneers with minimal points in the first quarter. Earning a first time varsity start were juniors Hannah Cote and Lauren Tingley who both added much needed height to the Madawaska team grabbing rebound after rebound. Junior forward Kelly Dugal also provided some big shots to help secure an Owl victory in their first game of the season.

The second game of the evening featured our Owl Boys vs. the Pioneer Boys. Led by Matt Deschenes' 15 points, Madawaska quickly jumped out into the lead and never looked back. Senior center Travis Pelletier was effective for the Owls making some huge plays on both the offensive and defensive ends, while seniors Dylan Wetmore and Devin Pelletier played smothering defense all night. In his season as a Varsity starter, junior guard Aaron Thibeault showed some great ball control while handling the point for Madawaska the majority of the night.

The Owl Girls travel to Central Aroostook while the Owl Boys host Fort Kent on Wednesday night.
