The Eagles, who are 9-5, traveled to South Portland to face the Red Riots who are 12-2. The Eagles knew going into the game it would be a tough one, because Windham was without starting point guard Marcus D’Andrea, who is out for the rest of the season with a broken hand. The Eagles missed his ball handling.
The Red Riots led the game by 12 after the first quarter and by 17 at the half, then South Portland was able to extend the lead by 23 early in the third quarter. But the Eagles started to make a comeback in the fourth quarter closing the gap in the score down to seven, making the score 64-57 with two minutes left in the game. The Eagles momentum was starting to change the outcome of the game and it looked like the Eagles could possibly close the gap more when all of a sudden South Portland's key player Jaren Muller unexpectedly got a leg cramp that stopped the momentum and caused both teams to go to their benches. When the court was cleared South Portland was able to catch their breaths and go on to score nine points closing the game 76-59.
Senior Kevin Weisser finished with 32 points, including five 3-pointers. He scored the Eagles first 12 points and had 18 points in the second half of the game.
“South Portland is long and a very tough team to play against,” said Windham coach Kevin Millington. “They have enough players who can shoot the three.”
