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.
