And who could blame them?

 

The Eagles, behind the dominating pitching of junior Kirsten Pelletier and a long home run by Kristy Prelgovisk in the first inning, won the Class A state championship for the first time in 10 years Saturday afternoon, stunning previously undefeated ...

This time it was Brunswick High’s turn.

 

The Dragons’ senior-dominated boys’ lacrosse team got the title game rematch it wanted – and the desired result. Brunswick beat South Portland, 13-9, Saturday at Fitzpatrick Stadium to win the Class A state championship and finish with a 16-0 record.

 

“Beginning of the season we wrote it down: We want to be in this game playing the same team because we knew (South Portland) would be here and we wanted to win,” said Matt Brooks, one of Brunswick’s four captains. “The record speaks for itself.”

Posted: June 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA, Maine — The Messalonskee Eagles managed just one hit in the Class A softball state championship game.

 

And as far as they’re concerned, it’s still soaring through the air.

 

Kristy Preglovisk’s first-inning home run and the two-hit pitching of Kirsten Pelletier propelled Messalonskee to a 1-0 victory over previously undefeated Scarborough in Saturday’s state final at Cony High School to earn the Eagles their first championship since 2005.

Posted: June 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — About an hour before the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team stormed its home field, rejoicing in the first regional championship in program history, Messalonskee was doing the same some 200 miles North on the campus of Thomas College in Waterville.

 

First-time Marshwood vs. first-time Messalonskee. If you’re looking for a fun storyline entering today’s Western Maine Class A championship game, that one should do the trick.

Messalonskee girls lacrosse continues to persevere in honor of teammate Cassidy Charette

Sport: Lacrosse (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: June 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

OAKLAND — Before each game this season, Messalonskee High School girls lacrosse coach Ashley Pullen wrote three points of emphasis for her team on a dry-erase board.

 

The specifics of the first two fluctuate from game to game, but each generally is related to either the team’s offense or defense.

 

The third always remains the same: “Play like it’s your last.”

 

It is a lesson the Eagles came to know all too well this offseason. Last October their teammate Cassidy Charette was killed in a hayride accident in Mechanic Falls. Pullen and members of the team said they have continued to keep Charette in their minds and have found ways to honor her both on and off the field.

Messalonskee set for Scarborough showdown

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: June 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA — Messalonskee softball coach Leo Bouchard knows it’s going to take a monumental effort for his Eagles to topple undefeated Scarborough in the Class A state title game Saturday at Cony High School.

 

He also says that counting the Eagles out would be a mistake.

 

A big, big mistake.

 

“I really think my pitching can hold them at bay,” Bouchard said. “I think my defense can do the job, too. I really think we match up well. We are very confident. This is the most confident group I’ve ever had. Everyone is on the same page. They all exude that confidence. I mean, who in the beginning of the season thought we could beat Bangor three times? I am sure those same people are thinking we can’t beat Scarborough.

Tilton happy to be part of Richmond dynasty

Posted: June 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

RICHMOND — For the vast majority of Richmond’s softball players, returning to St. Joseph’s College’s Richard W. Bailey Field for the Western Class D championship on Tuesday brought back a flood of memories of last year’s regional championship win over Greenville and other success they’ve had on that field.

 

Most of the reminiscing had to do with getting a hit or making a catch in last year’s 7-2 win over Greenville. For freshman catcher/pitcher Sydney Tilton, though, the memories were of being a spectator watching the Bobcats win five Western D titles and a state championship over the last five years.

Scoville helps Scarborough make all the plays, big and small

SCARBOROUGH — Tom Griffin, the Scarborough High softball coach, tries to make sure his players are ready for any situation. So he puts them through a variety of drills in practice each day.


Among them is one he calls “bomb the first baseman.”

 

It’s really simple. “One after another, the other kids rifle the ball at her,” said Griffin. “And they throw bad balls – in the dirt, high, wide. We want our first basemen to catch and react. It’s a great way to get them so that they don’t have to think so much.”

BRUNSWICK — They were fourth-graders back in 2007, when Brunswick won its first Class A boys’ lacrosse state title.

 

“I was actually on the (sideline) for the second half so I was pretty pumped up about that,” said Cameron Glover, now a senior and the eldest son of Coach Don Glover. “It was awesome growing up, watching those guys.”

 

Turns out that was the only state title for the Dragons, runners-up to Scarborough and Portland the following two seasons, and to South Portland last year.
