Cape Elizabeth takes out Mountain Valley

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

by Bob McPhee..RUMFORD — It hasn't been an easy season for the Mountain Valley football team. The Falcons finished off the regular season with a solid but losing effort against Cape Elizabeth on Saturday night. A couple of big plays by Cape Elizabeth, including a 67-yard pass from quarterback Jeb Boeschenstein to Ben Ekedahl for a touchdown, along with time-consuming drives fueled a 21-0 triumph over Mountain Valley at Chet Bulger Field. Cape Elizabeth (6-2) will enter...

Leavitt cuts down Spruce, locks up top seed

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

TURNER — If this was a building year for Leavitt football, it’s safe to say the Hornets can cut the ribbon. Led by Mitchel Davis’ two interceptions and the tireless tackling of Will Parkin, Taylor Woodbury and Chander Lajoie, Leavitt shut out explosive Spruce Mountain in the second half Saturday night and walked away with a 28-14 win at Libby Field. Leavitt (7-1) clinched its second consecutive Campbell Conference regular-season title and No. 1 seed in the Class C West playoffs...

County leaves a winner as Lewiston edges Edward Little

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

County had tough choice — go for the tie or go for the win. "When you're 0-7, I'm thinking, 'Do we go for the kick and a chance to tie it on something we don't do well or go for the win and see what happens?'" County, who announced that he would retire after this season, went for broke in his last game. It paid off as quarterback Jared Rubin hit Quintarian Brown in the end zone on a short conversion pass. After a defensive stop, Lewiston secured the 20-19 win, sending County out in memorable fashion...

LEWISTON — Playing on a surface unlike any they've seen this season, against a markedly improved opponent, Oak Hill's goal Saturday was simple: Survive and advance. Three different players found the back of the net on the heels of penalty corner tries and Brooke Surette led a stiflin...

Dirigo dismisses Traip, 35-12

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

KITTERY — Dirigo's punishing ground attack and special teams play have drawn the most attention this Class D West football season, but the Cougars showed Saturday that their passing game is equally dangerous. Riley Robinson hooked up with Gavin Arsenault five times for 117 yards, capped by a touchdown in Dirigo's 35-12 win over Traip at Memorial Field. Dirigo (6-1) locked up the No. 2 seed in the regional playoffs and will host No. 7 Boothbay next Friday...

Raiders roll past Greyhounds

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

LISBON — Oak Hill entered Saturday’s game at Lisbon knowing that no result would help its Class D West football playoff position. It probably will have to hit the road twice to earn a shot at defending the state title. None of that stopped the Raiders from sending a clear message: That the road to the Gold Ball still passes through them. Enjoying optimum health for the first time this season, senior Kyle Flaherty carried 27 times for 205 yards and three touchdowns, the final one a 68-yard backbreaker, and led Oak Hill to a 28-14 victory at Thompson Field...

AUBURN — With each near-miss, Caroline Gastonguay made an adjustment. The St. Dom's freshman had a pair of prime chances early in Saturday's Western C preliminary game. When she didn't score on those, she didn't fret or dwell on what could have been. She prepared herself for the next...

No. 3 Lisbon fends off No. 6 Dirigo in Western Class C quarterfinal

LISBON — Morgan Morrow was a puzzle the Lisbon forwards had a hard time solving. Dirigo's freshman keeper was aggressive, meeting would-be attackers at the top of the circle and throwing off their rhythm. "We talked about how far she was coming out, and we were coming out far,...

Lewiston's FĂștbol (R)evolution:

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Message Board

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

 
By KEVIN MILLS ..The recent evolution of the Lewiston boys' program has given McGraw's career new life. “I think it’s added more years in my coaching career,” McGraw said. “It’s been rewarding. After all these years of coaching, I’m finally having a little more success. It’s a lot more fun to go out there. I can use the skills that I have to help the kids use the skills that they have to find success.” McGraw has seen his team, its skills and its style of play progress in the past decade. It’s been a challenge, he said. But when you get down to it, he’s still coaching the same way. He’s trying to develop kids and their skills while helping them be successful. The unpredictability of coaching kids — African or American — still exists. It makes no difference...

FARMINGTON — The Skowhegan Area High School football team’s playoff fate had been determined before its game against Mt. Blue was even half over on Saturday night. Brewer’s win over Hampden meant the Indians were out. Still, Skowhegan played hard, and made sure the season ended as well as it could. Kaleb Brown ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns, and added 104 yards receiving as Skowhegan took a 26-21 win over the Cougars. Skowhegan ends the season at 4-4, ...

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WINSLOW — One way to tell a team’s expectations is how they react after certain games. For Winslow field hockey, Saturday afternoon’s 4-0 victory over Mattanawcook was great, but also an opportunity to improve. “We have work to do,” Winslow coach Mary Beth Bourgoin said after her team’s win in the Eastern C quarterfinal. “They were a strong team. They were a physical team. We had some gaps that we have to fix before Tuesday.” Miranda Gagne scored two goals, ...

WINSLOW — This was the game Mount Desert Island senior captain Jack Sasner expected his team to play all season. “I think we’ve had our game all season. Sometimes, and I don’t know what it is, we just didn’t play with it every game,” Sasner said. “This one, we were mentally prepared right when the kickoff started. We played 80 minutes.” Sasner scored two goals, and the No. 11 Trojans upset No. 6 Winslow 3-0 in the preliminary round of ...

Posted: October 26th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH CHINA — Sam Wilkinson collected himself and his thoughts as he stood in front of John Bapst keeper Bach Nguyen just a handful of minutes into an Eastern B prelim game Saturday afternoon. The Erskine sophomore knew exactly where he wanted to put the ball. “I always have a plan when I take one,” he said. “Right on the left post.” Wilkinson didn’t miss as he ripped a shot past Nguyen just 3 minutes, 55 seconds into the game for the first of his two goals...
