No. 9 COLEBROOK 55, No. 8 MT. ROYAL 39: In Sunapee, the Mohawks got 19 points and four assists from Carson Rancourt, and 14 points and 12 rebounds from Malik McKinnon, and moved into Thurdsay’s 7 p.m. quarterfinal in Littleton with the top-seeded Crusaders.

Colebrook was in front 39-21 going into the fourth quarter when the hosts made a game of it, cutting it to 12. Each team had scored just eight points in the second quarter, “and it wasn’t because of good D,” Colebrook coach Buddy Trask said, noting Mount Royal’s best player was on the bench in the frame.

“We figured if we played well we were going to win,” the veteran coach added. “We still turned the ball over a lot.”

No. 5 PITTSFIELD 84, No. 12 LISBON 53: In this playdown of Panthers in Pittsfield, Quinn Bissonnette scored 15 of his 31 points in the third quarter and the host Panthers held Lisbon to two points in the final quarter, ending Lisbon’s season at 9-10 despite a season-high 10 3-pointers.

“The boys battled tonight. The final score is not representative of the game the guys played,” Lisbon coach Sam Natti said. “We cut it to three late in the third and had momentum but missed a couple layups, gave up a 3 and that was that.

“The boys gave everything they had, we just ran out of gas.” It’s the first game this season Lisbon scored 50 points and lost, he added.

Lisbon hit 10 three pointers and had 22 points from Will Lopus.

LISBON (9-10): Will Lopus 8-3-22, Austin Fisher 3-0-9, Dylan Colby 2-0-5, Nathan Superchi 5-1-12, Jared Jesseman 1-0-3, Andrew Strout 1-0-2. Totals: 20-FG 3-7-FT 53.
