It always is fun when two small school boys basketball teams, ones which like to push the ball up and down the floor and play a free-flowing style, get together on the court. That can mean plenty of fast-paced action, excitement and points.

North Haven and host Searsport provided that on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 27 when the Class D and Class C opponents met in a late-season high school game.

When the final buzzer sounded, the foes had combined for 118 points, as the host Vikings grabbed a comfortable 74-44 victory.
