On a good night, it's a long drive from Bar Harbor to East Machias. On a night when you lose, it's an even longer drive. Unfortunately for the MDI Trojans Boys Basketball Team it was a long, long drive as they lost to Washington Academy 61-34 on Tuesday, February 9th.

Washington Academy came out flying leading 17-10 at the end of the 1st Quarter, and then outscored MDI in the 2nd Quarter 22-6 to take a 39-16 at the end of the 1st Half. In the 3rd Quarter the Raiders increased their lead 51-25.

MDI was led by Porter Isaacs with 13 points while Brady Renault had 11 points. The Trojans sank 2 3-pointers, one by Ethan Merchant, the other by Renault. MDI was 10-15 from the free throw line.

Washington Academy was led by Andon Wood with a game high 22 points while Jax Lin finished with 15 points. The Raiders sank 5 3-pointers; 2 by Evan Ackley, 1 by Lin, 1 by Wood and the other by Ayden Wannemacher. WA was 10-13 from the free throw line.
