Belcher faces big test when UMaine plays New Hampshire

Sport: University Of Maine Football  Message Board

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Black Bears (5-5, 4-3 Colonial Athletic Association) have won three consecutive games with the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Belcher starting at quarterback. The true freshman from Reading, Massachusetts, arrived on campus in August with the expectation that he would battle for the starting job left vacant by the graduation of Marcus Wasilewski, but there were three players in front of him. Redshirt sophomore Dan Collins won the spot, but Belcher impressed his coaches so much that he was named the backup and started seeing game action in Week 3 against Boston College. When Collins went out with a shoulder injury in Maine’s sixth game, Belcher took over. He has taken every snap at quarterback since, throwing for 648 yards and three touchdowns, but more impressively running for 298 and another score...

Offensive line helped pave way for Hapworth's big day

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

“We give it all we’ve got every play,” Clark said. Offensive line is not a glory position. It’s one that is often overlooked as fans’ eyes shift towards the player celebrating in the end zone. For the Winslow offensive line though, Saturday night was their turn to shine in the bright lights at Alfond Stadium. All those hours trudging away at the sled in practice finally paying dividends. “It’s awful but it makes us better,” Gammon said. “We do it every day and we just keep pushing and pushing. “That’s how we win. Keep practicing 110 percent every day and that’s how we get the Gold Ball baby.”...

Class B title game: Why Marshwood will win

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Hawks have been dominant all season and are ready to end a 25-year state title drought.

Marshwood High will win tonight’s Class B football championship game for three reasons.

1. The Hawks have stuffed every opponent’s running game. In two matchups with York, they turned Cullen McCarty into an afterthought. Brunswick (9-1) has two top-level backs in Will Bessey and Alex Bandouveres, so the challenge is greater, but unless quarterback Tom Hanson can loosen the defense, the Hawks will load the box. When that happens, linemen Nick Dalecki...

Class A title game: Why Thornton Academy will win. There's no stopping the Trojans, and everyone's tried

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

So why will Thornton Academy win the Class A football state championship Saturday over Windham? Because there’s a storm brewing at Fitzpatrick Stadium, fueled by the Trojans’ Thunder and Lightning offense. he Trojans can beat you with their power running game (averaging 7.5 yards every time they rush the ball) or their quick-strike passing game (averaging 20.0 yards every completion). They average 47.4 points per game, with a season low of 28. Yes, Windham’s defense allowed less than 10 points per game, but the Eagles haven’t seen an offense...

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

ORONO — Dylan Hapworth scored seven touchdowns, accounted for 300 all-purpose yards and recovered a fumble Friday night as Winslow dethroned Leavitt as the Class C football state champion, scoring a 62-14 victory in this year’s final at the University of Maine. Winslow (11-0) captured its first state title since winning Class B in 2001 and won its fifth under Coach Mike Siviski. “I don’t know if in all my experiences I’ve ever seen a team that was that ready,” Siviski said. “They were just really, really ready.”...

BU men's hockey team rallies from two-goal deficit, beats Maine in overtime

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

And that’s how things played out on Friday night at Agganis Arena in Boston as third-period goals by BU’s Ahti Oksanen and Matt Lane erased a 2-0 deficit and freshman phenom Jack Eichel won it 3-2 2:40 into in overtime after Connor Leen was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct for hitting from behind just 16 seconds into the OT. BU, ranked third in the country, improved to 7-1-1 overall, 5-1-1 in Hockey East, while Maine fell to 3-8-1 and 2-4, respectively...

Dylan Hapworth's seven touchdowns lead Winslow by Leavitt for Class C state football championship

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Winslow’s offensive outburst was the second-highest in Maine state championship game history, trailing only Cheverus of Portland’s 65-13 victory over Lewiston in the 1985 Class A final. Winslow’s 62 points did establish a Class C state title game record, surpassing Marshwood of South Berwick’s 51-0 victory over Leavitt in 1984. And the Black Raiders’ defense was equally dominant, shutting down Leavitt’s high-octane passing attack with a mix of pressure against Hornets’ ...

Central Michigan runs past Maine men's basketball team

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Maine sophomore swingman Garet Beal is recuperating from a concussion and didn’t make the trip with the team. He has not played in Maine’s first three games. Maine’s struggles on the defensive and offensive ends don’t matter until the team’s mental approach changes, first-year coach Bob Walsh said on the Black Bear network after the game. “Our mentality is not where it should be for how we approach games,” he said. “The mindset is not proper. It’s my responsibility to change that.”...

Success, consistency mark Winslow football coach's 30-year tenure amid changing times

Posted: November 22nd, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Black Raiders beat Leavitt of Turner Center 62-14 in the Class C state championship in Orono on Friday night, a third-straight trip to the title game that can be attributed in large part to one of the links between past and present, Winslow head coach Mike Siviski. “I don’t know if you can put a finger on it, but there is a tradition that does exist and there’s an attitude that goes with it, and our players have picked up on the attitude,” said Siviski, a 1965 Winslow High School graduate, now in his 30th year as head coach at his alma mater...

This trip will match the undefeated Huskies against defending state champion Oak Hill of Wales for the Class D state title beginning at 2:36 p.m. The previous trip two years ago? Consider it a reconnaissance mission for a young team determined not only to put a winless 2012 campaign behind it, but to reverse that futility entirely...

BANGOR, Maine —- Husson University football players Joe Seccareccia, Josiah Hartley, Ellis Throckmorton and Seth Freudenberger began their careers in the Bangor Youth Football program. “I think it was fourth or fifth grade,” recalled Seccareccia, the Eagles’ starting quarterback. “I actually played soccer up until then. My dad signed me up to play football halfway through the season. I played on the Huskers with Ellis...

Marshwood's Rotsko has earned his stripes

“It’s funny,” said Caverly. “A couple of coaches came up to me and said, ‘You’re the most popular man in western Mass. You got Coach Rotsko to leave so now we have a chance to win.’” Like he did at Longmeadow, where he won 11 Super Bowl titles and went 184-39, Rotsko has done little but win since taking over the Marshwood team prior to the 2012 season. His squads have gone 29-5 and, on Saturday, will try to win the program’s first state championship since 1989 when...

WALES — Camaraderie has been a point of emphasis for the Oak Hill football team this season. Whether it’s their motto of “one heartbeat” or their unselfish praise of teammates, the Raiders are a family — in more ways than one. “We all say we’re a family and most of us really are a family,” senior Adam Merrill, who has kicked his fair share of clutch extra points this postseason, said...

MCI, Oak Hill vie for state championship Saturday

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Both Doucette and Bertrand said they are going to adapt to what the other team does, and they simply hope to put their players in the best positions to succeed. “We try to be pretty balanced,” Bertrand said. “We’ve run the ball quite a bit here but certainly we can throw the football. “One of the things that we do is see what the defense is giving us. We don’t have to try to force the issue.” While the Huskies want to stay balanced, the passing game could prove to be an edge for MCI...
