Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Lakers must control the Beavers' tempo to win the Class D title Saturday..Washburn will be chasing history while Rangeley will be seeking perfection when the unbeaten teams meet for the Class D state title at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on Saturday (1:05 p.m. tipoff). The Beavers (21-0) are seeking an unprecedented fifth consecutive Class D state title, Currently, they are one of five girls’ teams with four championships in a row, along with McAuley (2011-14), Lawrence (1991-94), Westbrook and Gorham (both 1978-81). Washburn coach Diana Trams said the only pressure on her team is the pressure her players put on themselves. “The girls are well aware of (the chance to make history),” Trams said. “But this week in practice, things seem to be pretty light. They expect a lot of themselves, and they want to have a good showing on Saturday.”...

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Eastern B hockey semifinals are set for Saturday at Sukee Arena..WINSLOW — What effect does a dramatic, opening round playoff win have on a team in its next postseason game? That is what the top two seeds in the Eastern B boys hockey tournament, Messalonskee and Waterville, will find out Saturday when they play their semifinal contests at Sukee Arena. No. 4 Brewer (9-7-3) scored a goal with less than 1 minute to play and added an empty netter soon after to top John Bapst 4-2 in its quarterfinal contest, and as a result will get top-seeded Messalonskee (17-1-0) at 5 p.m. No. 2 Waterville (13-4-1) and No. 3 Winslow (13-6-0) will cap off the night in the other semifinal at 8 p.m. The Black Raiders scored a pair of third period goals, the game-winner coming with 2:51 to play to score a come-from-behind 3-2 win over sixth-seeded Hampden Academy in the quarterfinals...

Sophomores lead way for Waterville hockey

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The group of 10 have been crucial in the Purple Panthers' playoff run..WATERVILLE — This season, the Waterville Senior High School ice hockey team underwent a youth movement, not out of want, but out of neccesity. With just one senior and four juniors on the roster, the Purple Panthers turned to a large sophomore class. “We don’t have a lot of older guys to lead,” Waterville coach Dennis Martin said. Now, Martin has a loaded sophomore class he can count on for leadership, and he has the group for two more years. Waterville’s 10 sophomores emerged this season as keys to the team’s successful regular season, and are eager to continue their winning in the playoffs. “I think a lot of kids on our team improved a lot this year. Last year, some of us were a little timid, but a lot of us have grown and gotten better,” sophomore defenseman Andrew Roderigue said...

The senior's newfound confidence in the paint has been key for Maranacook's title run..READFIELD — Liz D’Angelo knows the blood, sweat and tears Maranacook has put into becoming the first girls’ team in school history to reach a state basketball final. She can also appreciate how much longer her team will be remembered if it can take one more step on Saturday. “We’ve worked really hard for it. We’ve come in to practices, Monday through Saturday, over the past four years, practices over vacation, early mornings, late nights. We put a lot of time and effort into the program and we’re really looking for that payout from it,” she said. “It means a lot for all of us to get here.” “A Gold Ball would be icing on the cake,” she said...

Posted: February 28th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Rangers pull away in the second quarter while setting a Class B championship game record for 3-point baskets..In a Class B title game featuring three 1,000-point scorers, Greely High’s trio of fearless sophomore shooters and its unsung point guard made the championship difference. The Rangers put on a second-quarter shooting clinic Friday night, making all five of their 3-point attempts to claim a 23-point halftime lead and were never threatened in beating Presque Isle 56-39 at the Cross Insurance Arena. “When they’re falling the confidence obviously goes up,” said Moira Train, who made three of the team’s Class B championship game-record nine 3-pointers. “Coach definitely put that on us, to shoot.” Greely (20-2) won its fourth Class B title and first since 2004. In the Rangers’ 27-5 second quarter, Train (team-high 14 points) made two 3-pointers. Fellow sophomores Isabel Porter (12) and Molly Chapin each nailed one as did senior co-captain Haley Felkel...

PORTLAND—The Greely Rangers set out this winter to become the best girls' basketball team in Class B. They wound up being the best girls' team in the state. Regardless of class.
