Ian Mileikis of Edward Little fights back from career-threatening injury

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

By KALLE OAKES.. AUBURN — Ian Mileikis surveyed the football field through his facemask, planted both feet and cocked his arm to throw the way he’d been coached since peewee level. The rest of what transpired was such a split-second blur that Mileikis can’t quite recount it in order. Clean, blindside hit below the knee. A gruesome, telltale snap. The ripping and tearing sensation. Searing pain like the Edward Little High School athlete had never experienced in his life. He didn’t need X-rays or an orthopedic surgeon to tell him that his junior football season was over or that his basketball season was in jeopardy...

Terriers basketball team pulls away from Beavers down the stretch

Posted: January 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Akanji, Murray help Thomas make up for Barnes' absence...FARMINGTON — Thomas College doesn’t want or need to get used to the idea of life without Levi Barnes. But the Terriers don’t mind knowing that they can find ways to win when the leading scorer in the North Atlantic Conference isn’t in the lineup. Thomas shot 60 percent from the floor in the second half, including 8-for-14 from 3-point range, and withstood a late University of Maine-Farmington rally with a 14-2 run to end the game in a 74-60 victory at Dearborn Gymnasium on Saturday. With the win, the Terriers swept the season series with the Beavers and picked up their second win in three games without Barnes (23.7 ppg), a junior guard from Skowhegan who went down with an ankle injury Jan. 9 against New England College...

Messalonskee's boys hockey team overcomes illness, Waterville

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Cunningham battled through flu en route to hat trick..WINSLOW — Heading into Saturday night’s showdown against Messalonskee High School, Waterville boys hockey coach Dennis Martin was not sure how his team was going to slow down the Eagles’ top line of Jake Dexter, Jared Cunningham and Brandon Nale. It would appear he — and the rest of Eastern B, for that matter — is still searching for the answer. Messalonskee’s top line combined for three first-period goals at Sukee Arena as the Eagles (9-1-0) rolled to a 4-1 victory over Waterville (6-4-0). “They’re a concern for everybody,” Martin said. “They do all their work for them. They move the puck well and stuff, we tried some things and our guys didn’t adapt...

SP boys use size to hold off Cheverus

Posted: January 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH PORTLAND—Nobody boasts a front line like the South Portland boys' basketball team and the Red Riots' size and depth helped them remain near the top of the standings Friday night. Hosting never-say-die Cheverus, South Portland shot to a quick lead behind a spectacular first quarter from unheralded junior Ruay Bol (9 points, 8 rebounds), as it went up, 21-9. When senior Jaren Muller made a layup three minutes into the second period, the Red Riots enjoyed a 25-9 advantage and appeared on the brink of breaking away, but the Stags, behind strong inside play from senior Zordan Holman, hung tough...

Posted: January 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Oxford Hills defeats Messalonskee with strong inside game

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 17th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Vikings earned their 10th straight win with some effective offense in the first half. Oxford Hills hit five of its first seven shots in the first quarter and four of its first six in the second. That enabled the Vikings to build a 34-15 lead by halftime. Though the trio of Hanley, Morton and Erin Eastman has provided the Vikings an outside presence for much of the season, Oxford Hills didn't need that spark from the perimeter against the Eagles. The Vikings were able to find open players in the post or weren't afraid to take the ball to the rim. "We have to take advantage of our strengths," Pelletier said. "Almost every night we're going to be one of the bigger teams on the floor - with the exception of Bangor. We've got to take advantage of that. We've been able to do that the last couple of games. We've just got to keep that going."...

GARDINER — Sometimes how you start can be more important than how you finish.

Bragoli Memorial Gym. The win is the Tigers’ first of 2015, snapping a four-game losing streak in which Gardiner (5-8) lost each game by single digits...
