Then double overtime. Knotted at 47-47, it took only 2 points for Caribou to take the championship home to Aroostook County, 49-47.

Caribou’s defense and hustle brought them to the championship with Parker Deprey and Austin Findlen leading the way with Sawyer Deprey, Alex Bouchard, and Isaac Marker.​​
