Winslow hockey capitalizes on Cony/Monmouth miscues

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Jimmy Fowler and Jacob Trask each scored a pair in the Black Raiders' 5-1 victory. WINSLOW — The Cony/Monmouth co-op boys hockey team has struggled to string together three full periods of strong play throughout the season and the same issue ultimately cost the Rams on Wednesday evening at Sukee Arena. Winslow (8-3-0) took advantage of those momentary lapses from the Rams (3-6-0) and got a pair of goals eight seconds apart from Jimmy Fowler as the Black Raiders pulled away for a 5-1 victory. “We’re still being inconsistent with everything — with effort, with puck control, decision making,” Rams coach Chad Foye said. “We have spurts of five or six minutes when we play well, and we have six or eight minutes where we don’t play as efficiently or play as well...

Messalonskee's Doyon took hard road to success

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Eagles senior is a finalist for the Frank J. Gaziano Award, given to the state's top linemen.

Jake Doyon’s response was so out of character, Brad Bishop had to ask the Messalonskee High School senior if he was O.K. “I went silent. Twenty seconds of complete silence,” Doyon said. “I’m not usually speechless. I’m usually a talkative kid.” Bishop, Doyon’s football coach at Messalonskee, had just called with the news that Doyon, a 6-foot-2, 270 lineman, had been selected to both the first team offense and defensive lines in the Pine Tree Conference Class B’s postseason awards. Even bigger, Doyon was the PTC B Player of the Year, a rare honor for a lineman. “I was pretty tickled,” Bishop said. “He’s coachable. He gets along with all his teammates. He works hard. He was a force.” On Saturday, Doyon may earn the title of best offensive lineman in the state, as a finalist for the Frank J. Gaziano Award, given annually to the top offensive and defensive linemen in the Maine..

The 24-credit hour Alpine Operation Certification program is designed to teach students business and marketing skills specific to the industry.. FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington will offer a certification program for managers in the ski and snowboard industry beginning in the fall 2015 semester. The 24-credit hour Alpine Operation Certification program is designed to teach students business and marketing skills specific to the industry as well as courses in ski instruction, UMF President Kathryn Foster said at a Wednesday morning news conference. Representatives from Sugarloaf, Saddleback and Sunday River ski resorts, as well as UMF representatives, gathered for the announcement at the base lodge of Titcomb Mountain in West Farmington. The program, said Clyde Mitchell, UMF professor of business, is a logical fit for the university because of the school’s proximity to the ski resorts...

The Panthers score the first 15 points and down Pine Tree Academy, 42-33..FREEPORT — North Yarmouth Academy took advantage of a horrendous start by Pine Tree Academy and rolled to a 42-33 victory in a Western Class D boys’ basketball game Wednesday. The Panthers (7-6), who built a 15-0 lead in the first 10 minutes, snapped a three-game losing streak and tightened their grip on a tournament berth. We told the boys in the locker room a win by even one point is still a win,” NYA Coach Jason Knight said. “But we’ve got to find ways to be more efficient at the offensive end. That’s an ugly win there.” Jake Malcolm led NYA with 16 points. J.P. Tshamala led the Breakers with 11 points and 11 rebounds...

SCARBOROUGH—It was the kind of game we don't see much of anymore, especially in the Southwestern Maine Activities Association. And it was a delight. There was non-stop offense, back-and-forth action and lead changes galore. But in the end, the story was the same. Portland wins. Again.

Wrestling with a numbers crunch: Maine Principals' Association proposal would reduce sport from 3 to 2 classes

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

This year’s Bucksport team began preseason practices with about 10 competitors, a number that since then has been reduced to six because of the attrition natural to what is perhaps the most physically demanding sport offered to high school students through the Maine Principals’ Association .But it’s not just smaller Class C schools such as Bucksport that are feeling the pinch of declining wrestling numbers. Even traditional Class A powerhouses such as three-time defending state champion Marshwood of South Berwick and neighboring Noble of North Berwick have experienced similar trends within their wrestling programs. “As teams win, the numbers usually get larger, but I can say we’ve won the Class A state championship the last three years, and our numbers declined this year,” said Marshwood athletic administrator Rich Buzzell, chair of the Maine Principals’ Association wrestling committee. “Noble’s had a tremendous wrestling program over time and their numbers are down, too. I think across the board the numbers are not where they have been in the past for numerous reasons.”...

HOULTON, Maine — What a difference a week makes. On Jan. 15, the Houlton girls basketball team narrowly escaped East Millinocket with an eight-point win over Schenck. On Wednesday night, the Shires set the tone early in an up-tempo game, racing by the Wolverines 67-32. “Down there we got off to a slow start,” Houlton coach Shawn Graham said of his team’s 53-45 victory last week. “Their 1-3-1 (zone) bothered us and it wasn’t until the third quarter when we got out in transition more — pushing the ball up the floor — that we got back to the way that we would like to play.”…

Hampden boys basketball team faces grueling road swing

The Hampden Academy boys basketball team has continued to dominate its Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference brethren on its home court, extending a winning streak at home that spans more than five years to 46 games with a 68-59 victory over previously undefeated Edward Little of Auburn on Monday afternoon. But where the top-ranked Broncos (12-1) ultimately will be seeded in their quest for a fifth consecutive Eastern Maine Class A championship may well depend on how they fare as road warriors next week. Coach Russ Bartlett’s club will travel an estimated 580 miles to play three games in five days against three rivals with a combined 30-11 record through Tuesday night’s schedule...

Bowdoin College names football coach

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BRUNSWICK, Maine — J.B. Wells understands the dynamics of being a student-athlete at a New England Division III institution. That should help make the Trinity College graduate a good fit at Bowdoin College, where he has been hired as the school’s 29th head football coach. Wells, a 1991 Trinity graduate, arrives at Bowdoin after a successful, 12-year stint at Endicott College in Boston, where he guided the Gulls to a 75-48 overall record (.640). He replaces Dave Caputi, who stepped down last fall after 15 seasons directing the Polar Bears. “JB has demonstrated an unquestionable commitment to supporting the academic, community and athletic interests of members of his program at Endicott, and we are excited for the future of our football program under his leadership,” Tim Ryan, Bowdoin’s Ashmead White Director of Athletics, said in a press release..

BANGOR, Maine — Aaron Wilcox has won numerous awards during his 17 seasons as boys varsity soccer coach at Bangor Christian School. But his recent selection as Region 1 Northeast coach of the year by the National Federation of State High School Associations Coaches Association almost didn’t happen, and it had nothing to do with his work on the sidelines or his team’s success last fall. Wilcox called the Maine Principals’ Association office in Augusta in October to check on a problem related to his team’s participation in this year’s Class D state championship match when he was congratulated by MPA assistant executive director Mike Burnham...

Dirigo erupts to beat Oak Hill

"I think the turning point was the end of the third," Dirigo coach Karen Magnusson said. "When Lauren hit that 3 and put us up five, that momentum going into the fourth, it was like, 'We've got it.' The confidence on the girls was different. That helped get our rally going in the fourth." The Cougars (11-2) produced an energized and dominant final quarter. Dirigo put together some efficient offense with its stellar defense. In the process, the Cougars held the Raiders to just one field goal...

Now, he is getting his chance. A graduate of Messalonskee High School, Holmes is a freshman on the Husson men’s basketball team (10-2, 8-0 North Atlantic Conference) and has recently worked his way into more playing time. “I didn’t really expect to get much time being a freshman, but of course me being a basketball player I wanted to play basketball,” Holmes said. “I worked my way in, just trying to get a role. I didn’t want to be the man, I wasn’t trying to score every time or anything, I just wanted to work to get that role on the team and be part of
