MADAWASKA, Maine — Former Madawaska star Ian Lee, who set the record for career goals by a Maine schoolboy soccer player before graduating in 2014, plans to continue his career in the sport at Husson University in Bangor this fall.

 

Lee spent the 2014-15 academic year at the University of Maine where he studied chemical engineering but played only intramural soccer as the Orono campus does not field a men’s varsity program in that sport.

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Bernie Marvin learned the hard way not to overlook any opponent.

AUBURN — The mythology that KVAC baseball might feature Bangor and Messalonskee at the banquet table and everybody else scrambling for crumbs has been shattered.

 

For that, everyone can at least partially thank Edward Little. The Red Eddies now have beaten both preseason favorites after Thursday’s 2-0 shutout of the Eagles at Austin Field, a verdict that vaulted EL into the top two of the Class A East Heal Point standings.

LEWISTON — The city of Lewiston wasn't the original destination for the second meeting between Muhammad Ali (then known to many as Cassius Clay) and Sonny Liston, but as Paul Marcotte of the Lewiston Evening Journal wrote in a stop-the-presses, breaking news story on May 7, 1965, Lewiston would become "the fight capitol (sic) for the Clay-Liston heavyweight championship bout on May 25."

Hall-Dale baseball tops Madison

Posted: May 15th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Hall-Dale pounded 12 hits in the 10-0 road win.

 

MADISON — For the Hall-Dale High School baseball team, the play was a spark. For Madison, it was a bucket of water.

 

Down two runs in the bottom of the first inning, Madison had the bases loaded and one out, when Hall-Dale pitcher Cole Lockhart sniffed out the squeeze play. Lockhart threw his pitch behind hitter Evan Bess, making sure there was no chance Bess would get the bunt down. From there, runner Derek LeBlanc was caught down the third base line and tagged out, and Madison’s rally was effectively over.

Rodrigue leading Eagles back to former heights

Posted: May 15th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH CHINA — Ryan Rodrigue’s baseball baptism by fire came as a freshman.

 

A swing player for Erskine Academy at the time, Rodrigue got called up to the varsity for the playoffs. For most freshmen, that entails being an observer in the dugout to get an inkling of what playoff baseball is about.

 

Midway through the Eagles’ quarterfinal game at Lewiston, however, their starting shortstop got ejected. Rodrigue took his spot in the field and in the lineup, which meant batting cleanup.

MADISON — Chris LeBlanc, the softball coach at Madison Area Memorial High School, believes that you need to get good bunts against good teams to win. The Bulldogs play that way even at the younger age levels, and in preparation for Thursday afternoon’s big game with Hall-Dale, LeBlanc even brought back Emily McKenney, who graduated last year and pitched Madison to the state title.

 

“We needed to make sure that we got runners on any way that we could,” LeBlanc said. “We practiced it yesterday. We were fortunate enough to have Emily come in and do some batting practice for us. We felt we needed to execute it, and I thought we did a pretty good job of it.”

WELLS — Maddie Rouhana had three hits, drove in two runs and scored three times Thursday to lead Falmouth to an 8-4 victory against Wells in a Western Maine Conference softball game.

 

Rouhana also played exceptional defense at shortstop.

 

“At first I thought (Wells pitcher Allie Duplisea) was hard to pace, but then I figured it out and timed it,” said Rouhana. “I think the team caught on with that, too.”
