SP edges Portland in memorable Western A Final

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

STANDISH—The old adage about baseball being a game of inches never rang more true than Wednesday afternoon at Mahaney Diamond on the campus of St. Joseph's College in the Western Class A Final.

 

For the top-ranked Portland Bulldogs, who have enjoyed comeback magic all spring, another in a line of unthinkable victories appeared imminent when sophomore shortstop Jake Knop lined a pitch the other way off South Portland senior ace Henry Curran with two outs and the tying and winning runs on base in the bottom of the seven inning.

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

STANDISH — After a night of agonizing missed opportunity after missed opportunity, Saint Dominic Academy finally watched the right guy walk to the plate at the right time.

 

Senior Mitch Lorenz greeted Winthrop reliever Ben Allen with a one-out single to right field in the seventh inning, scoring Ray Mosca and Mike Bryant with the go-ahead runs in a 5-1 victory for the Class C West baseball championship at Mahaney Diamond.

 

“The shortstop was playing almost right behind second base, holding the guy on second,” St. Dom’s coach Bob Blackman said. “We said, ‘Mitch, take it that way, or get a good quality swing on it,’ and he did.

Telstar stuns Madison for seventh Western C championship

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: June 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

STANDISH — With each batter in the first inning Wednesday, Telstar's message grew louder.

 

It wasn't a polite, tap-on-the-shoulder reminder to top seed and defending state champion Madison. It was more like a smack-in-the-mouth warning.

 

"We wanted to try to get ahead," Telstar coach Jim Lunney said. "I like being the visiting team. If you score, all of a sudden it's a whole new ballgame. We got to throw a three-spot on the board and that puts the fear into anybody."

Bryant, No. 8 St. Dom's shut down Winthrop in Western C baseball final

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

STANDISH — There’s nothing like a four-run seventh inning to cure a game’s worth of frustration.

 

No. 8 St. Dominic could forget numerous squandered opportunities in Wednesday night’s Western Class C baseball final because it came through when it needed to most, breaking a 1-1 tie in the top of the seventh with four runs to defeat No. 2 Winthrop 5-1 at Mahaney Diamond at St. Joseph’s College.

 

Mitch Lorenz snapped the tie with a two-run single and gave St. Dom’s its first regional title since 2011.

Telsar upsets Madison, ends back-to-back softball title bid

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: June 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

STANDISH — One word can be used to sum up Madison’s performance in Wednesday’s Western Class C softball final — uncharacteristic.

 

The top-seeded Bulldogs made mistakes in all phases of the game that they rarely made in any one game during the season, and No. 3 Telstar took advantage early and often to pull off an 8-3 upset at Bailey Field on the campus of St. Joseph’s College.

Capers heading back to state championship

Posted: June 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

CAPE ELIZABETH — If you boiled down the Cape Elizabeth boys’ lacrosse team’s burgeoning dynasty to two cornerstones, aggressive on-ball defense and balanced scoring would be it.

 

The Capers used that winning blueprint to collect another regional title Wednesday night.

 

Playing Falmouth in the Western Class B final for the seventh straight year, the top-seeded Capers got goals from seven players and held the second-seeded Yachtsmen without a goal for the final 26 minutes for a 12-4 victory in front of a huge crowd at Hannaford Field.

BRUNSWICK — The top-seeded Dragons of Brunswick High needed less than a minute to take a lead, and less than five to establish their dominance.

 

They quickly turned the Eastern Class A boys’ lacrosse championship into a rout, dominating No. 2 Messalonskee 21-4 Wednesday evening at Brunswick High to return to the state final.

 

Brunswick (15-0) will face Western Maine champ South Portland on Saturday morning at Fitzpatrick Stadium in the Class A title game, for the second year in a row. The Red Riots won 10-8 last year.

WATERVILLE — Top-ranked Messalonskee led most of the way, then survived a late push from third-seeded Portland to win the Eastern Class A girls’ lacrosse title Wednesday with an 11-8 victory at Thomas College.

SOUTH BERWICK — Lindsey Poirier scored seven goals as second-seeded Marshwood dominated fourth-seeded Scarborough 16-3 to capture its first Western Class A girls’ lacrosse title.

 

“We were working on that, as far as isolating (Poirier),” said Marshwood Coach Bernie Marvin. “All seven (offensive players) can shoot and score down there so we were waiting for the slides but they never came so she had the green light.”

YARMOUTH — After losing three of its first four games, it looked like the Yarmouth girls’ lacrosse team wouldn’t get a chance to defend its Class B championship.

 

But Wednesday night, the second-seeded Clippers completed their romp through the East regional by rolling to a 15-7 win against No. 3 Freeport.

 

Yarmouth will play Kennebunk, a 10-7 winner over the Clippers on May 5, for the state title at 6 p.m. Saturday at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

Kennebunk edges Falmouth in final

FALMOUTH — Having lost by a goal in two straight regional girls’ lacrosse finals, Kennebunk High knew a quick start was needed Wednesday in the Western Class B championship game against top-ranked Falmouth.

 

“We knew we had to prove to them that we were in it to win it from the very beginning, and I definitely think the first five minutes of each half is arguably the most important part because it sets the tone for the rest of the game,” Kennebunk midfielder Kyra Schwartzman said.

STANDISH — South Portland first baseman Anthony Degifico said he had it the whole way. His pitcher wasn’t so sure.

 

Degifico caught Jake Knop’s line drive with runners on second and third for the final out, preserving the Red Riots’ 2-1 win over Portland for the Western Class A baseball title Wednesday at St. Joseph’s College.

 

“I just had to step a little to my right,” said Degifico, who also made the second out of the inning when he fielded a grounder and ran to the bag.
