With the softball game tied Wednesday afternoon, Lewiston threatened to open the lead again with the bases loaded. When Meagan Gosselin's hit toward right field appeared like it might drive in some runs, Edward Little's Molly Murray roamed over from second and made a diving play on the ball. She calmly gathered it up and threw to first for the final out.

AUGUSTA — Cony had questions about its defense entering the 2015 softball season. The Rams will have to come up with some better answers than they had for Oxford Hills in their season opener Wednesday if they hope to contend for a regional title again.

 

Playing with an almost completely revamped infield from last year’s Eastern A finalist team, Cony committed 12 errors and fell to the Vikings, 17-4, in a game that ended after six innings due to the mercy rule.

SCARBOROUGH—Those who think that opening game results are meaningless had that opinion validated big-time Wednesday evening at the Kippy Mitchell Sports Complex.

 

Host Scarborough, which was stunned by Westbrook on Opening Night, hosted Falmouth, which won its first game by 20 goals.

 

The Yachtsmen were expected by most to cruise to victory, but instead, it would take all 48 minutes to resolve this one.

PORTLAND—Portland and Deering's softball teams are both hoping for bigger and better things this spring and in Wednesday afternoon's season opener at Kiley Field, it's clear that both squads have reason for optimism.

 

The Bulldogs took advantage of early Rams' mistakes to open up a 7-0 lead after four innings, but Deering roared back with four runs in the fifth and two more in the sixth and came inches away from tying it up. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, Portland scored two unearned runs and freshman pitcher Sydney Gilbert did the rest as the Bulldogs went on to a 9-6 victory.
