Iron Eagles find success despite lack of numbers, tragedy

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 23rd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The moment was an opportunity for the Eagles to honor a friend and will go down as a highlight in a season that has seen Messalonskee play the toughest schedule in the Pine Tree Conference Class B, with an undermanned roster, while dealing with the deaths of two Messalonskee students. Through it all, the Eagles are 4-3 heading into Friday’s regular season finale at rival Lawrence. Physically and mentally...

Cony, Gardiner players bring new perspective to old rivalry

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 23rd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

GARDINER — Whether you call it Cony-Gardiner or Gardiner-Cony, there is no denying the annual football game between the rival high schools is one of Central Maine’s greatest traditions. Since the first game was played in 1892, countless players have donned red-and-white or black-and-orange jerseys looking to make their mark in local lore. In that sense, Friday night’s contest is like any other in the storied rivalry — a unique, lively atmosphere far beyond any ‘regular season’ game. “It’s unbelievable. It’s a different type of game whether you go onto Alumni to play Gardiner or you go down to their field,” Cony senior Tayler Carrier,...

Education continues for UMaine quarterback

Sport: University Of Maine Football  Message Board

Posted: October 23rd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

ORONO — When Albany’s defense took away Maine’s short passing game and started blitzing at every opportunity Saturday, quarterback Drew Belcher lost his way. It was his first start and it showed. “All of the things that got him elevated to that spot kind of indicated that he would be a little bit more aggressive,” Black Bear Coach Jack Cosgrove said of his freshman. “I think it started to get away from him in terms of his trusting what he needed to be doing.” ...

Posted: October 23rd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

SACO—As Wednesday evening's Western Class A field hockey quarterfinal wound down, the Falmouth Yachtsmen appeared to have everything in their favor. After surrendering an early goal to host Thornton Academy, on sophomore Grace Decker's penalty corner goal, Falmouth carried play for much of the game, then was rewarded with 14:40 to play, when sophomore star Sydney Bell scored to make it 1-1...

ORONO, Maine — It had many of the trappings of a varsity football game. Lineups were announced, cheerleaders were on hand to support the home team, a concession booth awaited those seeking sustenance to fuel their fandom and the stadium lights brightly magnified the scene amid the cool autumn conditions. But for nearly 40 players like Houlton High School freshman Dan McNally, Monday night’s gathering at Orono High School offered something even more...

The Bangor Roadtrip

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

By Matt Boutwell..It’s Bangor week for Oxford Hills. Ah, Bangor. It’s the drive that can make some teams, broadcasters, media, and coaches go nuts. Some like the long quiet stretches of moose swamps. Others try to nap for two hours and get it over with. My goal each time I get to Bangor is to get there as quickly as possible. One fall Friday back in 2011, in the Maine Sports Network era, we were faced with rain like we are now, just a messy scenario. Games were being cancelled left and right, and one of the few games on the docket was Lewiston at Bangor...

JAY — Nicole Hamblin's stare was nearly enough to draw a card. Involved in a physical battle near midfield, the Spruce Mountain sniper echoed her team's sentiments of frustration. Quickly, the coaching staff noticed it, and pulled her onto the sideline for a breather and a pep talk. About an hour later, Hamblin was the hero...

AUBURN — The Lewiston boys' soccer team got a taste of something different Tuesday — and didn't like it one bit. For the first time all season, the Blue Devils were forced to play from behind. Edward Little scored early in the second half to present Lewiston its first deficit of the season. The Blue Devils reacted with a late comeback and 3-1 victory over the Red Eddies...

Leavitt flies past Freeport

TURNER — If Ashley Mathieu took the time to glance over her shoulder before swatting the ball into the cage for Leavitt’s third goal Tuesday afternoon, it wouldn’t have counted. The scoreboard at the opposite end of the field, dealing only in whole numbers, read all zeroes. But a referee’s stopwatch confirmed that Mathieu beat the clock by a whopping half-second...

Cony, Gardiner fight songs part of the rivalry

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

For decades, the Gardiner and Cony school fight songs have provided the soundtrack for the football season and all of the elements that come with it. In 1997, Gardiner faced Bangor in a legendary Eastern A championship game known to locals as “The Snow Bowl.” Gardiner’s pep band followed the team up Interstate 95 to Bangor’s Cameron Stadium. Just as it had done all season, it was prepared to fire up the team and its fans with the school fight song, “Gardiner High School,...

SOUTH CHINA — Tuesday afternoon’s steady rain did little to dampen the rivalry between the Erskine and Lincoln Academy girls soccer teams, two clubs headed for the playoffs in their respective divisions. The teams played to a tie earlier in the year, but there was more at stake Tuesday in the regular season finale as both teams were jockeying for playoff position. Visiting Lincoln came away with a 3-1 victory thanks to a pair of second-half goals from junior forward...

“We’ve got to treat every game like a championship game. Oxford Hills, they are a great team,” Leighton said. “We need to treat every team like it’s our biggest competition so getting off to a good, quick start is really important to us.” From there the Eagles cooled off though, and settled for the same 2-0 advantage at halftime. Leighton said she was not sure if the cold rain that peppered the turf field throughout the contest was a factor in Messalonskee’s slowed play, but Oxford Hills goalkeeper Shannon Fillebrown — who finished with 13 saves — certainly was...
