B South semifinal: #7-Cape Elizabeth vs. #6-Wells

at Portland Expo

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

Wells 49, Cape Elizabeth 36

The sixth-seeded Warriors (10-10) never trailed and pulled away in the fourth quarter to defeat the No. 7 Capers (8-12) at the Portland Expo and advance to their fourth straight Class B South final.

The Warriors got 16 points from Gavyn Leighton and 14 from Nate Chandler. Chandler set the tone early, as he blocked a shot on Cape’s first possession and then made the first basket of the game.

Wells led 13-8 after one quarter, then endured a four-minute scoring drought to start the second quarter. But the Warriors closed the half on a 10-2 run, highlighted by eight points from reserve Brayden Fazzina, to lead 23-13 at halftime.

Behind the shooting of Nate Mullen, the defending regional champion Capers roared back and trailed by just two, 31-29, entering the four quarter.

Wells never relinquished its lead, however, and advanced to play top-seeded Maranacook or No. 5 Lake Region in Friday’s regional final at Cross Insurance Arena.

Mullen finished with 20 points.
