Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Athletic contests rarely fulfill expectations. Each game begins with a blank canvas with those in attendance hoping to witness a Picasso. What generally transpires is anything from amateur doodles to a quality piece of work, albeit short of a masterpiece, but solid. When greatness is achieved, we bask in its beauty. The key to appreciating good sport and art is to recognize excellence when it is happening right in front of us.

 

For those fortunate enough to take in Wednesday evening’s Eastern Maine Class ‘A’ baseball final between Bangor and Brewer, high school athletics at its finest was on display. The performance between the lines that evening was only part of the entire landscape. The scene was set well before the first pitch was thrown.

Posted: June 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BREWER — With a couple of runs and some great escapes in the first two innings, the Telstar softball team had reason to be optimistic Saturday.

 

The Rebels were up early on Bucksport and kept the Bucks off the board after battling through a pair of threats.

 

Telstar, however, couldn't keep the Bucks at bay for long. Bucksport finally burst through for the lead in the third and then broke the game open in the fourth in a 9-4 Class C state championship win at Coffin Field in Brewer.

Posted: June 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR — The inability to string together hits and put up crooked numbers was the elephant in the box score for Saint Dominic Academy baseball all season, especially against top-flight competition.

 

At the best possible time, in the environment where it mattered most, the elephant turned into a three-ring circus Saturday, complete with all the requisite smiles and celebratory laughter.

 

St. Dom’s pounded out 17 hits and completed its amazing playoff run with authority, bashing Bucksport, 14-4, at Mansfield Stadium to win its fifth state championship. The Saints have won them all since 2005, and all under the leadership of Coach Bob Blackman.

Posted: June 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Cape Elizabeth overcame a challenge from Yarmouth to claim its third straight Class B boys’ lacrosse state championship Saturday, pulling away to a 7-5 victory at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

 

Cape Elizabeth (13-2) beat the Clippers twice in the regular season, but the state final wasn’t decided until Owen Thoreck scored his second goal of the game with 15 seconds remaining.

 

“This game came down to possessions,” Yarmouth Coach David Pearl said. “When you have as many penalties as we did and they have that many more chances to score, a team like Cape Elizabeth is going to score.”

Marshwood beats Messalonskee for first Class A state title in school history

Sport: Lacrosse (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: June 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND, Maine — Bernie Marvin urged his team to ignore the score, to keep its foot on the gas pedal and to find 25 more championship minutes.

 

But the verdict was already in, shining through the body language of the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team. The smiles were wide and the energy was palpable. On the other side of the field, the team from Messalonskee almost moped their way back onto the field, stymied by Marshwood’s efficiency and stumped on how to stop it.

 

Saturday’s Maine Class A girls lacrosse championship was a another early checkmate. For these Marshwood seniors, there’s been enough blood, sweat and tears over the past four years to suffice.

Posted: June 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine — St. Dominic Academy of Auburn freshman catcher Gavin Bates had been mired in a slump but he picked a perfect time to snap out of it.

 

Bates’ booming three-run double to left highlighted a four-run first-inning rally and the Saints never looked back in beating Bucksport 14-4 in six innings for their fifth Class C baseball state championship in 11 years and first since 2011.

 

Bates also had a pair of singles and a walk and drove in four runs as did senior first baseman Caleb Labrie, who had three singles.

STANDISH, Maine — Richmond pitcher Meranda Martin didn’t have her best stuff in the first inning of Saturday’s State Class D softball championship at St. Joseph’s College.

 

Stearns, playing in its first state title game, scored a run on a bases-loaded walk, and Madeline Morrison lined a Martin offering into center field. One Stearns runner touched the plate to double the lead for the Minutemen, and it appeared pinch runner Fredericka Hibbs was about to make it an early three-run lead.

But the Bangor High School baseball team will remember its 5-4 victory over South Portland in Saturday’s Class A state final as the ultimate in survival tests.

AUGUSTA — Their game had ended 45 minutes earlier, yet the members of Messalonskee High’s softball team and their entourage lingered on the softball diamond at Cony High as if they never wanted to leave.

 

And who could blame them?
