Class C Football Championship Preview: 'Getting to know you' not necessary

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

It’s the second consecutive meeting with a Gold Ball in the balance for two powerhouse programs. Leavitt ripped open a close game in the fourth quarter and celebrated a 47-18 victory in Portland one year ago. “We know they’re seeking vengeance,” Leavitt junior receiver and defensive back Max Green said. “They want some blood after the state game last year. We know they’re going to come in with the mindset of let’s go out there and execute and kick Leavitt’s (butt), and we’re going to try say no and execute too.” ...

Class D Football Championship Preview: MCI, Oak Hill different, but same

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

MCI (10-0) and Oak Hill (10-1) kick off at 2:36 p.m. as two teams that look a lot alike. Or do they? Certainly there are common denominators. Both teams have a two-headed, juggernaut backfield that has overcome season-threatening injury. Each side has a defense that grew tougher as the calendar page flipped into October, and again into November. Raiders coach Stacen Doucette isn’t seeing it. “I think they’re nothing like us. They’re a very physical team. They grind it out, kind of like an old-school team where we’re going to run right at you and you try to stop us,” Doucette said. “We can do that a little bit, but I think they’re a very old-school team. They’re well-coached and well-drilled...

Carrabassett Valley’s own two-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Seth Wescott has pretty much done it all in his roughly 25-year career. From Sugarloaf to Torino to Vancouver and back again, Wescott has been around the world and is still chasing new opportunities and new tracks of powder for the sport to which he has dedicated his life. This Friday the newest film from adventure cinematographer Warren Miller is debuting at Portland’s State Theater...

MCI football team seeks to complete worst-to-first journey at Class D state final

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

PITTSFIELD, Maine — At the depths of their football growing pains, the Maine Central Institute football players identified a goal that may have seemed unlikely at the time. Barely 24 months later, the Huskies have evolved from a youthful, winless 2012 squad to a veteran team on the brink of the school’s first football state championship since 1974. MCI (10-0) will face defending state champion Oak Hill of Wales (10-1) for the Class D title at 2:36 p.m. Saturday in Portland. “Our kids made a commitment two years ago,” said MCI head coach Tom Bertrand...

Maine hockey players look forward to Massachusetts homecoming, of sorts

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

ORONO, Maine — University of Maine hockey freshmen Liam Pecararo, Nolan Vesey and Mark Hamilton grew up in Massachusetts and attended games at Boston College and Boston University. Pecararo admitted he “loved BU, because my cousin, Kenny Roche, played for them. But I started drifting away when I was a teenager.” Roche, a left winger, played four years at BU, from 2003-07. The trio will return to their native state this weekend when the Black Bears visit Boston...

Winslow's state title hopes may hinge on pass defense in 'C' football final vs. Leavitt

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 21st, 2014 by Tom Nolette

“I think pass defense will really be one key and another key will be to keep Leavitt’s quarterback in control,” said Winslow coach Mike Siviski. “He’s at his best when he’s scrambling. He extends plays to complete passes or he’ll see an opening and go.” Craig throws to an array of targets, including three who stand 6-foot-3 or taller in...

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Freeport Falcons girls basketball team has taken on a change in personnel over the most recent off-season. With former coach Jim Seavey leaving the helm, the Falcons have hired former Morse High School girls basketball coach Mike Hart to lead the squad. Hart brings seven years of coaching experience to the table. He spent three years at Fryeburg Academy where he led the Raiders to a 46-13 record (2005-08) as well as playoff appearances in...

Lebel has made his mark with Hawks

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine – Jake Lebel has plenty of experience playing on the big stage. Just not this big stage. The biggest player on a physical Marshwood High School football team is a contradiction, of sorts. He’s a 6-foot-4, 245-pound presence at tight end and a backup on the defensive line whose biggest asset may be his hands, which have softly caught the most passes on the team. “We’ve even played him at split end,” noted Marshwood coach Alex Rotsko...

Class C Football State Championship: Air up there comfortable for Leavitt Hornets

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Craig has 42 total touchdowns (34 passing and a team-high eight on the ground) and needs only 67 yards in the final to hit 3,000. Green cleared the 1,000-yard barrier with a leaping, fingertip grab for a 46-yard touchdown this past Saturday against Wells, his 12th score of the season. He leads the team with 52 catches. Mix in deep threat and vicious downfield blocker Seeley (37 receptions, 709 yards, 12 TDs) and Davis (34-541-8), and few opposing defenses have the ability...

Kaubris ready for role with Bates College men's team

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

 Bates coach Jon Furbush said that Kaubris' role is still evolving this early in the season. He said Kaubris is a player he knows is always into the game and always ready for when his time comes. "He's a great leader, " Furbush said. "He's someone who has developed his skill set over the last four years. My hope for him is that he gets an opportunity to see some floor time and gives us a spark off the bench. Certainly there's some competition there. He's our glue. He's into every possession and into every game and every practice. He's a very important piece to why we'll be successful if we are."...

Winslow football can throw the ball, too

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WINSLOW — The Winslow High School football team’s offense is primarily built on the run. Led by senior tailback Dylan Hapworth and his 1,646 yards, the Black Raiders were happy to grind out drives throughout the season. That’s not to say Winslow will not throw the ball. The Black Raiders can, and when they do, it’s usually for a big play. Winslow’s opponent in the Class C state championship game on Friday night at the University of Maine is Leavitt...

Oak Hill offensive line makes up for lack of size. Creativity has proven to be key in the Raiders' blocking schemes.

WALES — How do you replace a player like 2013 Frank J. Gaziano Award winner Luke Washburn? “You don’t,” Oak Hill head coach Stacen Doucette said with a smile after his team’s 7-6 win over Lisbon in the Campbell Conference championship last Saturday, “but we have good players, though. “Luke is an exceptional player. Luke is special, although we have some special players, too.” Last season Washburn, a 6-foot-3, 260-pound lineman who now plays at Husson University...

Biddeford football denied a drop to Class B

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

But the Tigers, a power from the 1970s through the early ’90s, wanted to continue playing in Class A. When schools apply to play in a higher classification, they have to stay in that class for four years, according to an MPA rule in effect since 1984. It’s to stop schools from jumping to different classes every two years. “The Management Committee felt the policy should be upheld,” said Mike Burnham, an MPA associate executive director. “It’s more about the policy in place than Biddeford football. The committee has the final say.”...

Quarterback experience may matter in state finals – or maybe not

Posted: November 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Leslie, a sophomore, has come a long way in a short time. He led a fourth-quarter comeback against Cheverus in the Eastern Maine title game that would have made Tom Brady proud. Leslie drove the Eagles 80 yards in 10 plays in the fourth quarter, scored, then rushed for the 2-point conversion to make it a three-point game. Just over seven minutes later the game was in overtime, and ended when Windham blocked a point-after attempt to win 21-20....
