Mother Nature postponed many high school basketball games across the state Tuesday, but two of the few contests that stayed on the original docket were the Forest Hills boys and girls basketball teams taking on host Islesboro in a doubleheader on the island.

The Tigers had made the venture to Islesboro Monday and stayed with host families overnight in preparation for Tuesday’s contests.

The guests then outplayed the hosts in both games, as the Forest Hills girls won the first Tuesday afternoon contest 40-17, while the Tiger boys followed suit and upended the host Eagles 64-44 in the nightcap.

Ironically, Islesboro had traveled to neighboring Vinalhaven for games on Monday before returning home to host the Tigers of Jackman on Tuesday.

In Tuesdy’s girls game, the Tigers led 11-0, 24-9 and 33-13 at the quarter breaks.

Leading the offensive charge for Islesboro were Ally Craig (6 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals), Lindsay Durkee (5 points), Allana Govoni (2 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals), Caitlin Small (2 points, 12 rebounds) and Aven Howell (2 points)

Erica Turner netted 11 points to lead the Tigers, while Kendra Gilbert and Josie Hoyt each added 10.

The Eagles were 1-of-4 (25 percent) from the foul line, while the Tigers were (78 percent) from the charity stripe.

In Tuesday’s boys game, Forest Hills led 12-6, 34-14 and 46-37 at the quarter breaks.

Jason Hatch netted 19 points to lead the host Eagles, while D.J. Johnson added 11; Gerard Scherr, five; Max Mahan, three; and Charlie Gephardt, Tyler Grindle and Ben Rollins, all two.

Cory Plante poured in 23 points to key the Tigers, while Evan Worster added 14; Dylan McNally, 11; Joey Gilbert, eight; Spencer Conrad, five; and Kyle Fitzpatrick, three.

The Eagles were 9-of-15 (60 percent) from the charity stripe, while the Tigers were 15-of-24 (63 percent).
