Sport: Skiing  Message Board

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

FARMINGTON — The Mt. Blue High School boys' alpine ski team is peaking at the right time. With the KVAC/MVC championships less than two weeks away, the Cougars put together their best individual and team performances Friday at Titcomb Mountain. Mt. Blue placed four skiers in the top 10 and took first at the midseason KVAC/MVC meet. Kyle Farrington paced the Cougars with a fifth-place finish with a combined time of 1 minute, 19.11 seconds. His first and seconds runs of 38.49 and 40.62 seconds, respectively, were both fifth best. "That's the best I've seen them ski, not only as individuals but more importantly as a team," Mt.

Lewiston burns Brunswick in KVAC showdown

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BRUNSWICK — The final eight-point margin of victory probably doesn’t do the Lewiston High School boys' basketball team justice. Friday’s Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference contest between current Eastern Maine Class A fifth-seed Lewiston and No. 6 Brunswick was pretty much over when Blue Devils coach Tim Farrar went to his bench with his team holding a commanding 22-point advantage with 3:27 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Dragons and their never-quit attitude produced a 14-0 run that had Farrar rethinking his strategy, and his five senior starters stood at the scorer’s table with 30 seconds remaining. A timeout and a Lewiston rebound off a missed free throw salted away the final ticks of the clock, allowing the Blue Devils to leave Brunswick with a 9-6 record after posting a 63-55 victory...

Calder brothers lift Leavitt past pesky Nokomis

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

TURNER — Leavitt boys' basketball playoff hopes, already flickering like the lights during a blizzard, nearly went black Friday night during a flurry of a 3-pointers from Jakob Erskine of Nokomis. Led by the Calder brothers, the Hornets restored the power, at least for now. Senior point guard Isaiah and sophomore wing Eli combined for 18 of Leavitt's 22 points in the fourth quarter, reversing a six-point deficit into a 63-55 KVAC Class B win. "We've got to get them all," Leavitt coach Mike Hathaway said. "We've said if we don't win our last six games, we're leaving it to chance." Leavitt improved to 7-7 with four games to play. The Hornets have a double-digit disparity to make up in the tournament index column of Class B West Heal Points, but a brutal closing stretch of Spruce Mountain, MCI, Maranacook and Winslow furnishes the chance...

The Rams' height and poise helped hold off the Cougars' second-half charge in a 54-41 result..FARMINGTON — Mt. Blue spotted Bangor 13 points at the start of Friday night’s Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A clash, a fact that will haunt the Cougars for a while, and not just because that was the Rams’ margin of victory. Mt. Blue threw a scare into the top-ranked team in Eastern A, pulling within six late in the third quarter before Bangor seized ultimate control in the fourth quarter and pulled away with a 54-41 win. Cordelia Stewart led the Rams (14-1) with 16 points, while Katie Butler added 12 and Sarah Bragg 11. Addie Brinkman paced the Cougars (9-5) with 16 points and Caitlin Kane chipped in with 12.

Tight defense helps Winslow boys get past Gardiner

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WINSLOW — His team allowed 33 points in the first half, but Winslow High School boys basketball coach Jared Browne wasn’t concerned with the Black Raiders’ defense. “I told our guys at halftime that if we keep playing defense like that, keep contesting shots and keep boxing out, good things are going to happen,” Browne said. “And they did happen.”Winslow’s tenacious defensive effort finally paid off in the second half, when the Black Raiders held Gardiner to 20 points. The result was a key 65-53 win for Winslow, which expanded its lead in the Eastern Class B Heal Point standings with the victory...

Hawks drop third straight to Cheverus

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine – With the Western Maine Class A tournament approaching, there is no doubt in the mind of the Marshwood High School boys basketball team that it can compete with anybody. Though the wins haven’ followed in the past week. Marshwood battled back from a 10-point halftime deficit to tie, but Cheverus’ Jack Casale scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Stags to a 56-53 victory on Friday night.

CUMBERLAND—You might be able to hold the Greely girls' basketball team in check for a quarter or so, but ultimately, the Rangers find the answers. Friday evening in a home showdown against defending Class B state champion and recent nemesis Lake Region, Greely managed all of two points in the first quarter, but a stellar defensive effort allowed it to hang tough. The Rangers got things going in the second period, as a layup from senior standout Ashley Storey and a putback from senior Haley Felkel...

Marshwood's Quintal will be a Black Bear

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: January 23rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

NEWINGTON — For Zack Quintal, playing baseball at the University of Maine wasn’t only not on his radar a couple years ago, it wasn’t even in his geographic focus. “When I first started the whole recruiting process,” said Quintal, “I wasn’t even that interested in the program. I wanted to go down south and play in the warm weather.” For teammate Zach Hodges, one day patrolling the outfield for his home State U. was a dream. “Definitely, it was always on my radar,” he said. “UMaine was always something I had on my mind.” They came at their commitments from different directions, but Quintal and Hodges — Marshwood High School seniors who have signed National Letters of Intent to continue their careers at Maine — are the rare high school tandem in these parts who are both holding their tickets to Division I...
