Sport: Baseball

Posted: May 15th, 2015 by Matt Boutwell

HARWICH, Mass. -- Senior Ryan Beliveau (Lynn, Mass.) and junior Richard Fecteau (Newbury, Mass.) combined for five hits and eight RBI as the fourth-seeded Salem State University Vikings got the jump on the top-seeded University of Southern Maine Huskies to take a 10-1 victory Thursday in Game Seven of the NCAA Division III Regional Tournament being played at Whitehouse Field.

SCARBOROUGH—It's hard to serve up a nice, cold dish of revenge when you can't even get the ball.

 

Scarborough's girls' lacrosse team came into Thursday night's home showdown at the Kippy Mitchell Sports Complex against neighbor and rival Thornton Academy with one eye on the past and one on the present.

OLD TOWN, Maine — The Old Town Coyotes have done a good job eliminating late-inning drama from their baseball games this spring.

 

And early uprisings are one reason coach Brad Goody’s club is the lone remaining undefeated team in the state.

 

Old Town scored seven runs in the bottom of the second inning Thursday, more than enough to support Eric Hoogterp’s four-hit pitching as the Coyotes improved to 10-0 with an 11-2 victory over Foxcroft Academy.

LEWISTON — Lewiston High School's unexpected rise to the top of the Eastern Class A standings this season with a core of young players has surprised more than a few onlookers., and even, perhaps, the Blue Devils themselves.

LISBON — With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the seventh of a deadlocked game, there was no one Lisbon coach Randy Ridley wanted more at the plate than Austin Fournier.

Oak Hill extends streak with win over Lisbon

Posted: May 14th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

LISBON – For a veteran team looking to have success this softball season, it wasn’t the most encouraging of starts for Oak Hill.

 

The Raiders lost to some quality teams early and have been battling from the bottom of the Western B standings ever since.

 

“It was a little scary,” junior center fielder Jamie Prue said. “It was loss, loss, loss. We knew we weren’t that team. But they were against teams like Madison and Dirigo. They’re all really respectable teams that have good hitters and good fielders.”

Merfeld outduels Martin as Cony baseball edges Lawrence

FAIRFIELD — For a team that has entrenched itself in the playoff picture such as Cony, winning a crisp, well-pitched and well-played game in the field like Wednesday’s nailbiter with Lawrence can be extra satisfying.

 

For a team trying to battle its way back into Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A playoff contention like Lawrence, which has already been on the short end of too many close games, another well-played loss is small consolation.

The Hornets came through in the clutch for a crucial 4-3 KVAC B win.

SOUTH CHINA — Through a quirk of the schedule, Erskine doesn’t play Gardiner or Winslow this season, and those teams happen to be possibly the two best softball teams in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B. That means when the Eagles get a point-worthy team like Leavitt on the schedule, the game becomes even more important.

 

The Eagles gave it their best shot, putting 11 runners on base in the first five innings. But only three of them came around the score, and the result was a gut-wrenching 4-3 loss to Leavitt on Wednesday afternoon.

FARMINGTON — It had been a tough week for the Mt. Blue High School baseball team. The Cougars entered Wednesday’s game against Oxford Hills losers of three straight road games, none by more than three runs. When Mt. Blue spotted the Vikings a five-run lead after two innings, it looked like the Cougars’ losing streak would extend to four games on their home field.

 

Instead, the Cougars rallied and earned a big 10-9 win when Colton Lawrence singled home Ryan Pratt with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning at Hippach Field.

PORTLAND—Syd the Kid turned Fore River Fields into her personal playground Wednesday afternoon and Falmouth's girls' lacrosse team made another powerful statement as a result.

 

The Yachtsmen continued their climb back to dominance after last week's home loss to Cape Elizabeth by going to a one-time house of horrors and beating traditional powerhouse Waynflete for the third time in four seasons.

KENNEBUNK—Momentum is a funny thing in sports.

 

It can disappear as quickly as it arrives.

 

After enjoying a week to remember, Cape Elizabeth's girls' lacrosse team took what it thought was momentum to the site of the program's finest hour Wednesday evening, but in the matter of minutes, the Capers realized that they're not the team to beat in Western Class B.
