Ryan Petros of Ellsworth beats a pair of Mount Desert Island Acadians to a rebound during competition last weekend at the Great Harbor Shootout. Ellsworth was one of more than a dozen Hancock County teams that helped make up the 69-team tournament field.—JEFF WALLSSixty-nine teams from across the state played in 131 games over the three-day tournament. Two teams from Mount Desert Island made it to the final dance and one ended up atop the heap. In Division 2 (high school girls), MDI’s Island Magic beat all rivals by over twice their score until the final game. The Snow Bears also had a relatively dominant ascension through the brackets. This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThe Magic whittled away at a Snow Bears’ lead until tying the game with 3:16 left to play. A foul shot battle ensued that ended with the Snow Bears at the line and MDI holding a two-point lead. Both foul shots missed and it looked like the Snow Bears had the rebound, but somehow the ball ended up in the hands of birthday girl Megan Phelps’ hands as time ran out, giving MDI the 47-45 win and the championship. The Acadia Trojans also went to the championship round in Division 3 (junior high boys), facing last week’s Hancock County Sheriff’s Cup winner, Hampden. Hampden won 52-47.
