There were no championships to be won or playoff spots on the line when the Belfast and Mount View high school basketball teams met at separate venues on Thursday night, Feb. 7 to end their regular seasons.

But there were two important things at stake when the longstanding high school athletic rivals squared off on the hardwood for the final time this winter — namely, precious end-of-season wins and, of course, fleeting county bragging rights.

When the final horns had sounded in Belfast and Thorndike, the opponents had settled for a split to cap their campaigns.

In Belfast, the Mount View girls raced to a 47-16 victory, while in Thorndike, the Lion boys secured a 48-43 win.

It was the second wins of the season for the two squads, as the Lions boys beat the Mustangs 63-58 in Belfast and the Mount View girls bested Belfast 41-37 in Thorndike in earlier games this season.

None of the four Waldo County court squads qualified for the regional playoffs this winter.
