Calais boys shut down Dirigo to capture 'C' boys state crown

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine — The motto of the Calais High School boys basketball team is emblazoned on the back of their warmup shirts. “Hard hats and boots. All out. All game. All season.” Now, the Blue Devils can add: “All the way to a state championship.” Calais demonstrated grit, cohesiveness and balance, overcoming foul trouble to two senior starters to post a 57-43 victory over Dirigo of Dixfield in Saturday night’s Class C boys state title game at the Cross Insurance Center. Senior guard Nathan Newell spearheaded the Blue Devils’ defense and their multifaceted offense with 16 points and six rebounds as Calais took home its first gold ball since 2009...

Hampden surges to second Class A boys basketball state championship in three years

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA | A fast start and a dominant finish sparked Hampden Academy to its second Class A boys basketball state championship in three years Saturday night. Coach Russ Bartlett’s club — outscored by Portland 22-5 in the first quarter of last year’s loss in the state final — turned the tables on the Bulldogs in the rematch, trailing just once in the game en route to a 70-50 victory at the Augusta Civic Center. The win was the 14th straight at the ACC for Hampden, which showed its comfort level with the building almost immediately as Brendan McIntyre and Jake Black each hit two 3-pointers as the Broncos built an 18-11 lead by the end of the first quarter.…

Houlton girls pull away from Maranacook to claim Class C state championship

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR | You’d have thought the Houlton girls were in trouble when freshman star Kolleen Bouchard picked up her third foul early in the third quarter and was relegated to the bench. But it was a classmate who rose to the occasion in Bouchard’s absence Saturday night. Aspen Flewelling scored eight of her nine points during the third quarter, and the Shiretowners held Maranacook without a field goal over the final minute and a half as Houlton pulled away for a 59-51 victory over the Black Bears in the Class C girls basketball state final at the Cross Insurance Center.The Shiretowners earned their first gold ball since the program’s 1991 Class B state championship, and concluded the season with a 20-2 record.…

Irving leads Lawrence past Thornton Academy for first Class A girls basketball state title since 1994

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA | Nia Irving and Dominique Lewis weren’t born when Cindy Blodgett revolutionized Maine schoolgirl basketball during her four years at Lawrence High School during the early 1990s. But now they share something new in common with the phenom from Clinton — the title of state champion. Irving and Lewis combined for 15 fourth-quarter points Saturday as Lawrence used a late 10-1 run to pull away from Thornton Academy of Saco 50-43 at the Augusta Civic Center and win the program’s first Class A state title since Blodgett graduated from the Fairfield school in 1994 …

Worcester scores record 37 points to lead Washburn past Rangeley for 'D' title

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR | Washburn High School senior guard Mackenzie Worcester didn’t expect to reach the 2,000-point plateau for her career because she thought she entered Saturday’s State Class D championship game against Rangeley needing “40 or 50 points.” But her father, Larry, informed her Saturday morning that she was just 36 away.“That made me a little more nervous,” grinned Mackenzie, who promptly poured in a state D girls championship game-record 37 points to lead her Beavers to their fifth straight gold ball, 60-54, at the Cross Insurance Center...

Seniors spearhead Forest Hills past Fort Fairfield for 'D' boys title

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR | Forest Hills High School hadn’t had a legitimately tight game all season. Their average halftime lead was 27 points and the closest contest was a 14-point win over Hyde in the Western Maine final. That meant the starters seldom played anywhere near 32 minutes. On Saturday afternoon, the Tigers utilized their strength and experience to go the distance. Senior Tanner Daigle scored six of his team’s points from close range during the pivotal fourth quarter, helping Forest Hills edge Fort Fairfield 51-45 in the Class D boys state title game at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor...

Dirigo's domination: What makes Titletown tick?

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The boys’ basketball team will confront Calais at 9:05 p.m. Saturday in Bangor for the Class C championship. If the Cougars win, it will be the school’s 33rd state championship in eight different sports. If they don’t, it would mark the 21st runner-up trophy. Twelve of those state titles have come since the turn of the century, in the current players’ lifetime. Senior guard Tyler Frost, to cite only one example, has played in six regional championship games in three sports during his career. “Our trophy cabinet is bulging at the seams,” Dirigo athletic director Mike Hutchins said. “Every season we don’t have a place to put all the trophies the kids win. It’s a great, positive atmosphere. The kids and the school are committed to excellence, and they achieve it.” Both the regional and community newspapers of record have labeled Dirigo’s cluster of communities “Titletown,” and surely the school has no current peer when it comes to per-capita, around-the-calendar success...

Class C boys' basketball championship preview: Lots alike, and lots to like, in Dirigo-Calais clash

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR — Some basketball state championship games, like heavyweight title fights, are a clash of styles. Other than greatness and a desire to be the best in the business, there aren’t many common denominators linking the combatants. That’s far from the case as Dirigo and Calais get set to battle in the Class C boys’ title game Saturday night at Cross Insurance Center. On the surface, at least, the finalists might feel as if they’re gazing into a mirror. Both teams are 19-2. Each wears blue and white. They enter the game riding the crest of two lengthy winning streaks — Dirigo, 14 consecutive wins; Calais, 12 in succession. Commitment to conditioning and pressure defense lit the fuse as the regional champions ripped open tight games in the second half, and in Calais’ case, overtime, throughout school vacation week. And to top it all, Dirigo will play in its fifth Class C final since 2009 and Calais its fifth since 2006 when the game tips off at around 9 p.m...

Edward Little seniors showing the way this season

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

It's been a roller-coaster season for Edward Little. The Red Eddies have had their share of twists and turns, ups and downs, starts and stops. The ups have been euphoric: beating rival Lewiston for the first time in nine years, topping Lawrence/Skowhegan for their first playoff win in several seasons and once again winning the Gippers Holiday Classic. The downs have left Edward Little scratching its head: blowing leads in back-to-back losses to Scarborough and being swept in the regular season by Lawrence/Skowhegan in which half the team was in the stands for the second meeting. Through thick and thin, the Red Eddies have stayed the course and they've been rewarded with a regional semifinal tilt with St. Dominic Academy today at 2 p.m. The senior class, though small, has played a pivotal role in keeping the team together through the rough patches...

Rematches highlight Eastern A semis

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

St. Dominic Academy and Edward Little have seen each other nearly every day during the week for the past three months. They both call the Norway Savings Bank Arena home, and their locker rooms are separated by just a few feet. For the most part, the two teams get along well. That friendliness will take a back seat when the two Auburn teams take the short road trip across the bridge to square off at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee at 2 p.m. Saturday... - Lewiston seeks continued success against Bangor. Lewiston and Bangor are a bit more secluded from one another compared to Edward Little and St. Dom's when it comes to location....
