The Rockland, Belfast and Mount View of Thorndike girls jayvee basketball squads have been busy in recent days, including playing each in two recent games.

On Dec. 17, Belfast outlasted the host Rockland 39-31, as the Lions led 9-7, 18-16 and 28-18 at the quarter breaks.

Leading Belfast were Ashley Littlefield with eight points; Kaycee Fogg, seven; Maddy Cummings six; Crystal Lilley and Emily Blood, four; and Alli Dellamattera, Hannah Bailey, Paige Profitt and Sam Moores, all two.

For Rockland, Kim Young tallied 14 points; Danessa MacDonald, seven; Casey Carroll, six; and Hannah Lacasse and Ashley Malmstrom, both two.

“I was very proud of the girls hanging in the game as long as they did and they even got within six points late in the game,” said Rockland coach Christine Clayton. “The Rockland girls were very tired considering we only had one sub for the entire game compared to Belfast’s nine subs. We just couldn’t keep up with those numbers. Belfast had fresh legs the whole game. Yet, the young Tiger team came out hard right from the very beginning.”
