BLUE HILL—The noise in the George Stevens Academy gym was deafening as the Eagles defeated the Deer Isle-Stonington High School Mariners, 55-48, in an overtime contest on January 30.
The game was the second of the season between the two teams. The Eagles got the nine-point win in Deer Isle in the first game, which was the third-tightest margin of victory for the Eagles this season.
The first quarter featured several lead changes, with the Mariners pulling ahead with a lay-in from junior Nate Thompson with seven seconds left. Both teams scored 15 points in the second quarter, as DISHS took the slim 33-31 lead at the half.
Sophomore David Gadsby took control of the first seconds of the second half for the Eagles, draining back-to-back three-pointers to put GSA up 41-37 for the first time in the half. Junior Mike Moon extended that lead to 43-37, but junior Mariner Coleman Brown was fouled as time expired and knocked down two crucial free throws to cut the lead to four going into the fourth quarter.

If you were Daniel Jones, you would probably wish that there were only two teams in the NFL: the New York Football Giants, and the Washington Football Team. After all, four of Jones’ five career wins have come against Washington. It got me wondering if other Giants quarterbacks had such luck to start their careers against division rivals:
