Newmarket upsets Groveton, punches ticket to title game

For the first time in program history, the Newmarket girls are headed to the state finals as the #3 Mules knocked off #2 Groveton, 29-26, in the semifinal round of the NHIAA Division IV tournament on Tuesday night at Bedford High School.

Newmarket will take on undefeated top seed Littleton on Saturday for the title at Colby Sawyer College in New London at 1:00 pm.

The Mules trailed 7-4 after one and 14-13 at the half, but held the Eagles to just 12 points in the second half to come way with the victory.

Amaya Beckles led all scorers with a game-high 10 points for Newmarket, while Groveton was paced by 8 points from Aspen Clermont.
