Patient Poland fends off Fryeburg

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Poland was methodical on the offensive end and found the right shots at the right time to build the lead. Littlefield was a beneficiary of that operation. She scored six straight points in the fourth quarter to build a 41-34 advantage with 3:52 left. "I was really happy that she asserted herself offensively," Susi said. "That was big for us. We've been working with her to start asserting herself more and it was nice to see that." Michaella Arsenault led the Knights (4-1) with 21 points...

Lewiston doubles back on Mt. Ararat

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

TOPSHAM — Mt. Ararat High School boys' basketball coach Steve Cox shook his head at the end of Saturday’s 56-54 Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference loss against the Lewiston Blue Devils, knowing his team (now 2-4) has been just points away from pulling out a victory. Out of the Eagles four losses this season, the largest deficit came against Oxford Hills, 58-51. “We need a few breaks,” he said. “Class A is brutal and we are now 14 points away from being undefeated, with four losses, that’s how tough it is.” he said, reflecting on the point differential in his team’s three previous losses...

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

While Lewiston rolled to an early lead, Mt. Ararat stumbled at the start. The Blue Devils built a sizable lead and the Eagles were falling out of it. That all changed in the second half. Mt. Ararat rallied while Lewiston couldn't finish off a close game. The Eagles completed the comeback for a 43-38 overtime win...

Edward Little rallies, survives hungry Lawrence

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

AUBURN — Lew Jensen still looks a tad pale, a few pounds missing from his 6-foot-5 frame, after a stomach virus that wreaked havoc for two to three days this week. Saturday’s second half, though, the Edward Little boys’ basketball mainstay was the one making Lawrence experience the queasiness, chill and loss of appetite. Jensen scored all 18 of his points after intermission, including a putback with 9.7 seconds remaining, to help the undefeated Red Eddies escape with a 68-66 KVAC victory over the winless Bulldogs...

Defense and 3-pointers help Cony boys basketball edge Messalonskee

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

“Really, Cony, they want a hectic game,” Messalonskee coach Peter McLaughlin said. “T.J. does a phenomenal job with their pressure. They extend it full-court. It was more of just, take care of the basketball: Move it, pass it, don’t try to dribble through a trapping zone. We did, and we had the turnovers to prove it.” For more than 11 minutes, the Rams — who have no one taller than 6 foot 2 — did as good as job as possible on Nick Mayo, Messalonskee’s 6-foot-7 star. Mayo had...

Stellar goaltending not enough to stop Kennebunk

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Rams overcome a 45-save performance by Greely's Kyle Kramlich and improve to 4-0.

BIDDEFORD — The Kennebunk boys’ hockey team will remember this game as one where they ran into a hot goalie. Greely, on the other hand, might look back and wonder how the ice didn’t melt beneath senior Kyle Kramlich’s feet. Kennebunk put 48 shots on net Saturday and came away with a 3-0 victory in a Western Class B game at the University of New England’s Harold Alfond Forum. Kramlich, Greely’s senior goalie, made 45 saves – 21 in the second period alone – to slow the Rams’ potent offense, which had outscored opponents 27-3 in their first three games. “Kramlich is certainly the best we’ve seen so far,” Kennebunk Coach Sean Smith said...

Wrestling: Marshwood dominates Atlantic Invitational

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Hawks show their strength by winning eight of 13 weight classes. WELLS — Top wrestlers performed as expected and potential new standouts emerged Saturday at the Atlantic Invitational, hosted by Wells High. Led by multitime state champions Cody Hughes, Jackson Howarth and Brett Gerry, three-time Class A champion Marshwood rolled to the team title with 229 points and eight weight-class winners. “Today everybody wrestled above expectations, from our freshman (Kyle Glidden) at 106 doing awesome right up to our heavyweight (Loukas Coussoule),” said Hughes, a three-time Class A champ who recently signed a letter-of-intent to attend Virginia Tech. While it was a bit odd to see Hughes, the reigning 160-pound champ, competing at 182 pounds, it was no surprise that Hughes, three-time state champ Howarth (170) and two-time champ Gerry (195) were individual winners...

By Michael Hoffer.. CUMBERLAND—The legend of Ashley Storey continues to grow, the legend of Haley Felkel is just beginning and the Greely girls' basketball team rolls merrily along. Saturday afternoon against visiting rival Falmouth, the Rangers dug an early 4-1 hole, but controlled the rest of the game, as Storey put on a stat sheet-stuffing performance and Felkel sparkled as well. Greely closed the first period on a 13-2 run to seize control...

Cheverus comes to life, wins at Deering

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

By Michael Hoffer.. PORTLAND—For nearly five minutes Friday evening, Cheverus' boys' basketball team did little right and as a result, found itself in a mighty hole. Then, the Stags dug out of it and proved that it's not how you begin a game that matters, but how you finish. Cheverus fell behind rival Deering, 11-0, in a little over four minutes as the host Rams rode the defensive intensity of senior Stephen Ochan and the scoring touch of junior Ben Williams to a seemingly safe lead ...

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—The 2014-15 Waynflete boys' basketball team remains a work in progress, but there are signs that this squad, like last year's edition, could evolve into something quite special. Friday afternoon, the defending Western C champion Flyers hosted rival Old Orchard Beach and while they never trailed, they never got comfortable either, but they found a way to get the job done. Waynflete raced to a quick 11-3 run, sparked by the defense and energy of senior Harry Baker-Connick and the shooting of junior Milo Belleau...

BIDDEFORD – The Biddeford Tigers were able to hang on for a 3-2 victory Saturday afternoon over the Thornton Academy Trojans at Biddeford Ice Arena. There was certainly a feeling of hatred between the rivals. When the puck dropped to begin the first period, bodies collided and records were thrown …

Posted: December 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

There was little that went right for the Brunswick boys basketball team through three quarters in a boys basketball Saturday matinee against Bangor. The Dragons shot a paltry 11 percent (3-for-26) in the first half from the floor and managed just nine points, trailing by 11 at …
