Oceanside simply has too much for hard-working Mount ViewFerraiolo hauls down what could be single-game record 18 rebounds
Thorndike — While host Mount View turned in a gutsy, hard-working all-around performance against powerful Oceanside Friday night, Jan. 25 in a high school girls basketball game, ultimately, the visiting Mariners had, well, too much of everything, including a senior rebounding machine.
The Mustangs played a strong first quarter but as the contest wore on the hosts simply could not match the height, strength, skill or overall talent of the highly-ranked Mariners, who have league, regional and state championship aspirations.
Oceanside ultimately secured a 68-25 victory and clicked in all phases of the game, including passing, posting, shooting, defending and, led by senior Phoebe Ferraiolo, ripping basketballs off the glass.
Ferraiolo had a monster game in many ways, but none of her statistics was more impressive than the 18 rebounds she secured, which may be a single-game Oceanside girls record, according to Mariner coach Teel Foster.
A video from the game appears below.
The Mariners, who led 10-9, 24-14 and 50-24 at the quarter breaks, used balanced scoring to slowly, but surely, pull away from the Mustangs. However, again, no effort was more impressive than the 10-point, 18-rebound, 7-steal, 6-assist performance of Ferraiolo.
Also playing key roles for the Mariners were Kennadi Grover (14 points, 9 rebounds), Hannah Plourde (10 points, 10 rebounds, 3 steals), Ashley Gardner (9 points, 3 steals, 3 rebounds), Emily Gould (9 points, 2 steals, 3 rebounds), Makenna Brooks (6 points, 4 steals, 4 rebounds), Lily Vachon (6 points) and Brooke Dugan (3 assists, 3 rebounds). The Mariners made 8-of-17 foul shots (47 percent).
For Mount View, Courtney Morse tallied 10 points; Meri Picard, four; Colleen Schofield, Stephanie Stilkey, Alexis Morse, Brooke Tripp and Morgan Clifford, all two; and Janelle Thornley, one. The Mustangs netted 6-of-10 free throws (60 percent).
In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Oceanside (12-1, 76.1728 points) is second and Mount View (2-11, 4.8765 points) 16th, while Presque Isle (14-0, 92.3765 points) is first in the 19-team region. The top 13 teams qualify for the playoffs.
