NORTH HAVEN — When islands collide something has got to give and, for four Midcoast high school basketball teams, that meant a split of two games.

North Haven welcomed Penobscot Bay neighbor Islesboro on Friday, Jan. 28 for a pair of court games, and when the final buzzers had sounded, the Hawks and Eagles had earned a split of lopsided affairs.

In the girls game, North Haven won 33-10, while in the boys contest, Islesboro prevailed 69-13.

The island teams, like their mainland neighbors, have had fits and starts to the campaign with COVID-19 protocols, which has limited their games. At this point, the Islesboro teams are 7-2 (boys) and 0-5 (girls), while the North Haven squads are 0-8 (boys) and 2-6 (girls).

In the girls game, the Hawks led 12-2, 15-6 and 21-10 at the quarter breaks.

For North Haven, Mercedes Sparhawk tallied 13 points; Sophia Hansen, five; Isabelle Haskell, Abby Lattimer and Layla Sparhawk, four; Whitney Newman, two; and Maddie Lattimer, one.

For Islesboro, Anna Zlotkowski tallied four points and Sam Conover, Grace Burns and Abby Leach two.

In the boys game, the Eagles led 28-4, 22-8 and 55-8 at the quarter breaks.

Charlie Jagger and Robert Conover netted 10 points for Islesboro, while Owen Jagger, Tobais Conover and Chase Cook added eight; Harper Conover, six; Sam Jagger, five; Shamus Dove and Logan Burns, four; and Alex Watson, Nathan Waldron and Blake Zlotkowski, two.

The Eagles made 3-of-13 free throws (23 percent) and eight three-pointers, including two from Harper Conover, Chase Cook and Charlie Jagger, and one from Sam Jagger and Robert Conover.

For the Hawks, Milo Bernard connected for six points, Jonathan Brown four and Bryn Campbell three. North Haven missed its four foul shots and Bernard had the lone trey.
