Call it an early season showdown game in Class A North Region. The Hampden Broncos will host the Messalonskee Eagles and if the preseason coaches poll is correct, you are looking at the top two teams in this division.

The game is live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket and with a 7pm tip time.

Coach Russ Bartlett and his Broncos beat Skowhegan 64-31 in the opener on the road last Friday night. Now comes the chance to extend a home winning streak that has reached 56 games over six years. It is a younger and less experienced Hampden team. Only junior center Ian McIntyre and junior guard Jon Wolfington got considerable playing time a year ago.

Coach Peter McLaughlin and his Eagles won on opening night, beating Lawrence 62-49. Senior guard Nate Violette led Messalonksee with 21 point. The Eagles are coming off a 13-5 season a year ago.
