Senior standout Kolleen Bouchard led Houlton over Dexter Saturday night to claim the Class C north title and yet another trip to the state finals.

Bouchard scored 27 points -- surpassing 2,000 for her career -- in the 33-30 overtime win over the defending Class C north champion Tigers.

It was no easy win for the undefeated Shiretowners, as the No. 2 Tigers -- led freshman by Peyton Grant -- took the defending Class B north champs to the wire. Houlton moved to Class C this year.

Bouchard was able to tie the game at 28 on a three-pointer with 24 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime, where the Shiretowners outscored the Tigers 5-2.

Kolleen Bouchard scored her 2,000th career point on a free throw in the third quarter.

What's next: will play at 8:45 p.m. on Sat. March 3 at the Augusta Civic Center.
