Posted: October 31st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

These teams will meet for the second time in as many weeks, with Foxcroft scoring a 43-8 victory on the island last Friday night, Oct. 24. MDI will need to find a way to contain the Foxcroft duo of junior quarterback Hunter Smith and senior halfback Peter Boyer, who combined for 310 rushing yards and five touchdowns last week. Since Smith was shifted from wide receiver to quarterback in Week 3, he and Boyer have combined for 1,937 rushing yards and 31 touchdowns in six games...

Posted: October 31st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Two teams in the midst of bounce-back seasons after combining for just three victories last fall square off at Keyes Field. Brewer secured its playoff berth by winning three of its last four games, with the only loss a last-second 37-36 decision at No. 5 Mt. Blue of Farmington two weeks ago. “From week to week, we’ve gotten tremendously better as a team,” said Brewer head coach...

No. 5 Oxford Hills Vikings (4-4) at No. 4 Bangor Rams (5-3), 7 p.m. Friday:

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 31st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

These teams met just last Friday, Oct. 24, but similarities with the rematch may be few. Bangor should be near full strength after several starters were among players suspended for last Friday’s 18-0 loss to Oxford Hills by coach Mark Hackett in the aftermath of a locker-room incident the previous evening. A subsequent investigation by school officials resulted in Tuesday’s ...

AUBURN — Thoughts of last year already had begun to creep into the heads of the Edward Little girls' soccer team. The Red Eddies reached the Eastern A quarterfinals in 2013, only to lose in heartbreaking fashion at Hampden on penalty kicks. As Wednesday's quarterfinal with Lewiston remained scoreless, they wanted to be sure history didn't repeat itself. "...

Class C West Girls' Soccer Quarterfinals: Perkins propels Black Bears past Saints

Sport: Soccer ( Girls)  Message Board

Posted: October 30th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

AUBURN — By definition, soccer's "direct kick" means you have the option of trying to score without an intermediary. It also implies that the player gets up, dusts off her jersey, makes a quick scan of the field and fires away. That's what Maranacook junior Lindsey Perkins did Wednesday afternoon ... give or take 20 minutes...

MADISON — Despite a cold rain, Hall-Dale coach Guy Cousins kept the team’s postgame huddle together a few extra moments Wednesday. “I just want to soak this in a little,” Cousins told his team. Given that it is the playoffs, one might think Cousins wanted to steal one more moment with his team before it broke up for the season to reflect upon a tough loss...

READFIELD — High school football is geared toward upperclassmen. It is not that sophomores — and in even rarer cases, freshmen — cannot be successful on the grid, yet the sheer physicality the sport demands is better suited for student-athletes who have matured both mentally and physically. In a division like the Western D Campbell Conference, where small teams more often than not rely on major contributions from two-way players, seniors are worth...

MONMOUTH — It seemed just a matter of time before Sacopee Valley would overtake Monmouth in its Western Maine Class C girls soccer quarterfinal Wednesday. The No. 7 Hawks dominated the second-seeded Mustangs throughout the second half and finally broke through with a pair of goals in the final seven minutes to pull out a 2-1 victory. Junior Abby Hughes tied the game with 7 minutes, 5 seconds to go after taking a pass from McKenzie Murphy and chipping it in...

FAIRFIELD — Cole Robinson has heard the stories so often, when he retells them, you almost think he’s talking about himself. Robinson’s father, Tim Robinson, was a standout linebacker for Lawrence High School in the early ’80s. Cole has heard the stories about all the big games in which his father played, about losing to then-arch rival Winslow in the playoffs...

WATERVILLE — For one half of soccer, the Waterville girls soccer team appeared in trouble. But the Purple Panthers regrouped, remembered who they were and responded accordingly. Tied 1-1 at halftime, Waterville scored six goals in 24 minutes to pull away with a 7-1 win over Caribou in an Eastern B quarterfinal game Wednesday at Webber Field. “We were just talking about things ...

Cape Elizabeth adjusts to beat Morse

Posted: October 30th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

CAPE ELIZABETH — At first, Morse’s strategy of playing a high back line was working well. Over the opening nine minutes, Cape Elizabeth was called offside virtually every time it mounted an attack. “We haven’t seen that a lot,” said Cape Elizabeth left wing Kathryn Clark. “Most teams know we like to play direct. The disadvantage for us is we were offsides a number of times. The advantage for us was our forwards are very quick and we could get behind their line...

Cushioned by two early goals on free-kick plays, Scarborough topped Marshwood 2-0 in the Western Class A boys’ soccer quarterfinals Wednesday night at the Kippy Mitchell Sports Complex. Matt Caron and Wyatt Bridgham scored for Scarborough. The top-seeded Red Storm (14-0-1) will...
