Messalonskee, Gorham took different paths to state final

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Rams and Eagles are set to meet in a rematch of last year's Class B championship..LEWISTON — One team rode a 17-game win streak to the Eastern Class B boys hockey championship, while its opponent knocked off each of the top three seeds in Western B on its way to a state championship berth. Messalonskee and Gorham took different roads to the Class B championship, yet each path brought them to a rematch of last season’s final Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee. They definitely worked really hard to get to where they’re at,” Messalonskee coach Joe Hague said of the Rams. “That’s a testament to their desire to get there. They knew what it took to get there last year. That’s a tough way to get in there and they’ve earned their right to be there.”...

UMaine beaten in Hockey East playoff opener

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: March 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Black Bears are on the verge of elimination with a 4-2 loss at Vermont..BURLINGTON, Vt. — Will Merchant was in the middle of two key sequences for the Maine hockey team Friday night. He whistled in a go-ahead goal, then didn’t hear a whistle when Vermont tied the score before the Catamounts went on to a 4-2 victory in Game 1 of a best-of-three Hockey East playoff series at Gutterson Fieldhouse. The Black Bears (13-21-3) fell for the eighth consecutive time against Vermont, including five losses this season. But it was a hard-fought game and left Maine feeling good about its effort, if not the outcome. Merchant took a perfect pass from Nolan Vesey and lined up a wrist shot that beat Vermont goaltender Mike Santaguida high for a 2-1 Maine lead at 6:55 of the third period. The power-play sequence saw Merchant standing alone in the left circle, waiting for Vesey to find him...

With Caron, Scarborough has a shot in Class A state title game

Posted: March 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Red Storm meets St. Dom's on Saturday for the state championship..SCARBOROUGH — Matt Caron skated for a loose puck on the penalty kill, and seconds later the Scarborough High boys’ hockey season looked in trouble. “A guy came and just hit me awkwardly on the side and I broke my collarbone,” Caron said. It was the opener against Thornton Academy and as Caron went down, so did the Red Storm’s hopes. This was a young team that had lost a lot of its scoring power from last winter. And now Caron was gone. “I thought I was done for the season,” Caron said. But to Scarborough’s delight, Caron came back, and his presence is a huge reason why the Red Storm have reached their first Class A state championship game – against St. Dominic at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston. “Having Matt back has made all the difference in the world,” said Coach Norm Gagne...

UMaine women's basketball team in unfamiliar territory as No. 1 tournament seed

Sport: University Of Maine Basketball  Message Board

Posted: March 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The University of Maine women’s basketball team is entering some unfamiliar territory on Saturday afternoon. Only two years ago the Black Bears, bruised and shaken after their team bus crashed in Massachusetts, did not attend the conference tournament in Albany, New York. A year ago, the Black Bears were seeded fourth and knocked out by Hartford 63-62 in overtime. Otherwise, UMaine’s only postseason experience includes the two games in last season’s College Basketball Invitational, in which the Black Bears went 1-1. This time around, coach Richard Barron’s team, which shared the conference regular-season title with three-time defending champion Albany, is the top seed for the America East Women’s Basketball Championship. That hasn’t happened since 2005, when UMaine was upset by No. 8 Boston University...

He was Noble’s first state champ since Ben Valencia in 2011. Keisker, a junior, was third at the qualifier and second at states at 145...

Posted: March 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Coming off its fourth consecutive Maine Class A title, the Marshwood High School wrestling team is now looking to break new ground this weekend at the New England championships in North Andover, Mass. The Hawks are sending eight wrestlers, the most in program history. There is the potential for the team’s first individual champ, and the team could finish in the top three, which Marshwood has never done, according to coach Matt Rix. The event starts this afternoon and concludes Saturday night. Of the eight Hawks going, four are seniors. Leading the way is Cody Hughes, Maine’s record holder for career wins (208). He is 48-0 this year and has never lost a Maine match. He was second last year in overtime at 160 pounds...

Unified basketball thriving in first season. Playoffs begin for all of Maine's 17 teams next week.

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Winthrop High School’s unified basketball team has progressed far more than coach Joan Thompson could have envisioned in the sport’s inaugural season in Maine. So Thompson installed a couple of plays to help the players, and even those that play for the other team enjoy the sport even more. One play in particular is the ultimate demonstration in sportsmanship. “One of our plays is called ‘Shoot again,’ and we call out the number of a player on the other team who hasn’t scored yet,” Thompson said. “If a player on the other team misses a shot, we get the rebound and hand it back to the player who missed until they score.” Unified basketball completed its inaugural regular season on Thursday, and local coaches involved in the sport say it has been a rousing success. Unified sports partner special education students, who are called athletes, with regular education students, referred to as partners. During play, a team must have three athletes and two partners on the floor at all times. Partners are not allowed to score more than 25 percent of a team’s total points...

UMaine hockey out to upset Vermont in Hockey East playoffs

The Black Bears lost all four games to Vermont during the regular season..BURLINGTON, Vt. — For seven weeks, Bill Norman was a game-day spectator for the University of Maine hockey team. The Black Bears pulled him out of hibernation last weekend after defenseman Eric Schurhamer suffered a season-ending injury in Friday’s loss at Providence College. Norman had one tune-up game in last Saturday’s rematch with the Friars, and now will be called on to help Maine try to upset No. 17 Vermont when the Hockey East playoffs begin Friday at Gutterson Fieldhouse. “I feel bad for Eric, but obviously I’m excited to play again,” said Norman, a redshirt junior who saw action in eight games this season. “I feel like I did my job. There’s a few things in the defensive zone that I need to think more about. I made some plays and got some chances offensively.”...

Eagles' trio soared above rest this season

Messalonskee's Jake Dexter, Jared Cunningham and Brandon Nale have combined for 221 points..OAKLAND — Coaches in Eastern Class B strategized all season on how to stop the Messalonskee boys hockey team’s top line of senior Jake Dexter, junior Jared Cunningham and sophomore Brandon Nale. After the trio combined for 14 points in an 8-3 win over Winslow in the Eastern B championship last Tuesday, it is pretty clear none of them worked. “They’re just quick. They really try to move the puck and they don’t move east to west,” Messalonskee coach Joe Hague said. “They move north to south and they try to do it at a quick motion. “They use each other well and it has been a good matchup for them all year.” Statistics at times can be misleading, but in the case of Dexter, Cunningham and Nale they truly tell the story...

Biddeford wrestler still trying in a trying season

Posted: March 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BIDDEFORD — Dominick Day, the two-time Class A wrestling champion from Biddeford High, understands his sport is all about challenges. Day will welcome as many challenges as he can this weekend. He’ll end his high school wrestling career representing Maine at the New England championships in North Andover, Massachusetts, on Friday and Saturday. But Day must have felt like he had a heavyweight or two piling on top of him this season. Coming off a 138-pound Class A title and strong sixth-place finish at the New Englands last year as a junior, Day was ready to tear it up as a senior at 152 pounds. Then, on the eve of the season, he wound up in the hospital because of cellulitis. A common but potentially serious bacterial skin infection, cellulitis forms at a cut or crack in the skin and can spread rapidly into the lymph nodes and bloodstream...
