Falcons fly off handle

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

RUMFORD — Mountain Valley remained in attack mode by spreading the wealth around, and it paid off in a Western Class C boys' soccer quarterfinal game at Chet Bulger Field on Tuesday. Rasmus Soegaard scored two goals in the first half as the No. 2 Falcons utilized their finesse and strong passing style in a convincing 4-0 win over No.10 Carrabec. It was the first quarterfinal game played in the Hosmer Complex in nearly two decades...

Spruce Mountain stymies Leavitt in West B semifinal

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

TURNER — When Spruce Mountain made the decision to leave the Class C-dominated MVC for the Class A- and Class B-heavy KVAC, one of the hopes was that its teams would be better prepared for their annual foray into the Western Class B playoff bracket into which they are customarily thrown. That the Phoenix justified the thinking at the expense of a budding rival was an added bonus...

Blue Devils blank Mt. Blue

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

LEWISTON — With the start of a new playoff season Tuesday night, Lewiston boys' soccer coach Mike McGraw didn't want to see any sign of letdown from his Blue Devils. So prior to an Eastern A quarterfinal with Mt. Blue, McGraw wanted his team to live in the moment rather than dwell on the past. His team had beaten the Cougars in the regular season, but he didn't want his team taking anything for granted this time around...

The Hot Corner: Forfeit lengthens chain of wrong choices

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

By KALLE OAKES..First of all, Sacopee Valley and Telstar have been trying too hard to fit in for years. Once upon a time, in a land not so far, far away, there was a developmental league, built with the purpose of sanely growing the great game of football in Maine. For a variety of reasons, most notably everyone’s desire to be “varsity” programs and the need to increase the number of schools so that the Maine Principals’ Association would expand football from three classes to four, teams rushed to make the jump...

Telstar will forfeit playoff game to Lisbon

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

“I don’t think anybody really understands, but I do because I’m here,” Telstar coach Tim O’ Connor said. O’Connor said the stakeholders in Telstar’s program – coaches, players and parents – opted not to participate in the playoffs after a lengthy discussion that also involved Principal Ann Bell and Athletic Director Gail Wight. Telstar lost 40-6 at Traip on Oct. 11. The decision was reversed four days later when Traip forfeited that victory, and two others, due to the use of an ineligible player. “It was a decision based on numbers and safety,” O’Connor said...

Skowhegan cruises into regional final

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WATERVILLE — The joke around Eastern A this season was that Skowhegan finally got to see how the rest of the field hockey teams in the state live. Sure, the Indians were the No. l seed again, but they lost twice in the regular season and were hounded by injuries all year. On Tuesday night at Thomas College, Skowhegan once again showed what kind of team it is when all or most of the parts are working. Junior Brooke Michonski scored three goals, and the Indians pulled away in the second half to defeat Mt. Blue 4-0 in an Eastern A semifinal...

Big second half lifts Maranacook past Sacopee Valley

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

READFIELD — No one knows better than the defending Class C champions that there is no such thing as instant gratification in playoff soccer. Maranacook survived a frustrating first half and a pesky opponent to score three times in the second half and defeat Sacopee Valley, 3-0, in Tuesday night’s Western Class C quarterfinal match at Ricky Gibson Field of Dreams. The top-seeded Black Bears (15-0) will host No. 4 Waynflete in the semifinals on Friday. Matt Dubois scored two goals and Kent Mohlar contributed a goal and an assist for Maranacook, which outshot the Hawks, 23-2...

Gardiner eases by Coyotes to advance

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WATERVILLE — For the Gardiner Area High School field hockey team, revenge was a dish best served cold, and on the artificial turf of Thomas College. In 2013, the Tigers’ season ended in a Eastern Class B semifinal loss to Old Town, in a game that went down to a penalty corner shootout to determine a winner. “I do have to say, on the bus, that might have been mentioned several hundred times,” Gardiner coach Sharon Gallant said...

Tuesday, the Panthers pulled off their second straight upset in the Eastern Maine Class B tournament, defeating No. 4 Erskine 3-1 in a quarterfinal game. Last week, Medomak (8-7-1) knocked off No. 5 Old Town in...

LITCHFIELD — Simply put, the top-seeded Oak Hill field hockey team played its game Tuesday afternoon at Carrie Ricker School.

Lawrence edges Messalonskee to reach Eastern A final

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

FAIRFIELD — No one involved with the Lawrence field hockey program can remember the Bulldogs ever reaching the Eastern A final. Although it wasn’t the first time, it was memorable nonetheless. Twice, Lawrence led by three goals but Messalonskee came storming back each time. Finally, time ran out and Lawrence held on for a 5-4 victory in Tuesday afternoon’s Eastern A semifinal.“It was nerve-wracking,” said Lawrence junior Lauren Watson, who scored her team’s final three goals. “I’m actually kind of speechless. Words can’t really describe how amazing it is to play with all of these girls from different communities. It’s just incredible.”...

Winslow back in regional final after Mount View win

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WINSLOW — Dinah Bilodeau did everything but stand on her head to keep the Mount View field hockey team in its Eastern Class C semifinal game Tuesday against Winslow. But a shot by Jessica Greeley that slipped by the Mustangs goalie was the difference, as the Black Raiders reached their second consecutive regional final with a 2-1 overtime victory. Winslow (15-0-1), the No. 1 seed, will play either Dexter or Foxcroft in the regional final Thursday at Hampden Academy.“It’s going to be another tough game, but we’re excited,” Greeley said...

Hall-Dale boys advance past Monmouth

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

FARMINGDALE — Few teams can protect a lead like Hall-Dale, so there is never a good time to fall behind the Bulldogs. Falling behind them on their home field, during the playoffs, when your best scorer isn’t at full speed would qualify as an especially bad time to face a deficit against the Bulldogs. Ryan Sinclair scored 9 minutes, 45 seconds into Tuesday’s Western Class C quarterfinal...

Posted: October 29th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

RICHMOND — The Richmond boys soccer team cruised through most of the regular season, winning six of its 14 games by five or more goals. So when the Bobcats, the defending Western D champs, opened the playoffs, it did so with lofty expectations. “We’re hoping to win states,” said junior Logan Anair. “That’s what we want.” Top-seeded Richmond took a step in that direction Tuesday afternoon, when it stuffed No. 8 Greenville 3-1 in a Western D quarterfinal game...

SCARBOROUGH — Of all the possible playoff games, Kerry Mariello considers the regional semifinals the most dangerous. “You tend to look ahead,” said Mariello, the coach of Scarborough High’s top-ranked field hockey team. “My main focus was to make sure the girls were ready for this game.” That didn’t appear to be an issue Tuesday night. The unbeaten Red Storm put together a smothering defensive effort and got goals from three players to turn back No. 4 Thornton Academy 3-1 in a Western Class A semifinal...
