Cory Spence (Baltimore, MD) fueled a 16-2 explosion out of the gate for Bridgton Academy as the Wolverines erased the disappointment of the night before and held off a competitive Lee Academy squad 76-60 on Sunday afternoon. The Wolverines had trouble putting the Panda’s of Lee away for good as the hosts missed many easy opportunities around the bucket and were sloppy with the ball in the second half. Spence led Bridgton Academy all afternoon with a 17 points and Aleks Dobrovic (Podgorica, Montenegro) continued his fine play with a game high 18 points for the afternoon. Texas A&M recruit Keith Coleman led the visitors with 12. Bridgton coach Whit Lesure complimented Spence’s play specifically following the game. “I am glad he was on our side today. He stood out in the gym with his readiness to compete. College bound players have to learn how to play hard every day and I thought he set the best example for us in putting the last 24 hours behind,” Lesure commented.
Lee had beaten Bridgton in the two previous meetings a year ago and continues to field a highly competitive team with the best in New England. The state of Maine has three quality teams at the highest level reflective of the growing prep landscape in New England that once was dominated by a small group of a few schools.
