Sport: Cross Country  Message Board

Posted: October 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

LISBON — Lisbon High School's Nick Harriman is taking a page out of Josef Holt-Andrews' playbook on how to conduct himself. Holt-Andrews, who graduated from Telstar in June, was the Class C state champion in cross country last year. He's currently at Iowa State, where he's on the cross country and track and field teams. "As an non-professional runner, I thought he was amazing role model," Nicholas Harriman said of Holt-Andrews...

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Football is a bundle of contradictions. What do you expect from a game whose most esteemed coach borrowed the one-liner, “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing,” and made it famous? It is a game both brutally honest and sometimes beholden to an it’s-legal-until-you-get-caught philosophy. It teaches invaluable life lessons, brutal ones, and occasionally foolish ones...

Posted: October 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Veteran Kennebunk High football Coach Joe Rafferty remembers the days of exchanging 16mm game film with opposing coaches. They would meet at a halfway point between their homes. “First you had to drop it off so it could be processed in Boston, and then you would pick it up and meet with a coach on Sundays to exchange it. Fortunately back then, all our opponents...

Posted: October 20th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

FALMOUTH—One team was taking part in its 18th successive postseason. The other hadn't played in the playoffs in four years and hadn't won a win-or-go-home game in eight. Based on that disparity of experience, the ensuing result wasn't much of a surprise when the Falmouth Yachtsmen hosted the South Portland Red Riots in a Western Class A preliminary round field hockey playoff contest Saturday afternoon...

Avery Bradley's rise began in Maine

Sport: Red Claws  Message Board

Posted: October 19th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Paul Pierce started laughing the moment Avery Bradley walked into the locker room. The Boston Celtics were in Charlotte in February 2011, and Bradley had just been recalled from the NBA Development League for emergency depth. The rookie's hair had grown out while on assignment, and Pierce howled at the sight before asking Bradley, "Are there no barbershops in Maine?"...

Posted: October 19th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

RUMFORD — Every year, like most communities throughout the state, Mountain Valley High School welcomes foreign exchange students who are the equivalent of juniors or seniors. Soccer being the world’s game, one or two of the boys usually play and typically help out the Falcons’ program a little bit. This fall? “We got a lottery,” Mountain Valley coach J.T. Taylor said. Not one, not two, not three, but four Falcons hail from Europe...

Yet there was Monmouth late Saturday morning, standing near the start-finish line of the same University of Maine Augusta course, whooping and hollering and hoisting its second MVC Championship trophy in four years.

Blue a stunning 37-36 victory...

Posted: October 19th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

RUMFORD — Scoring the game-winning goal in a field hockey playoff game has plenty to do with skill, of course. There’s also an enhanced value at this time of year to being in the right place at the right time, however. Or in Chelsea Allison’s case, the left. Being relocated from one wing to the other prior to Saturday’s Class C West preliminary game paid huge dividends for Mountain Valley sophomore Allison, who scored both goals in the Falcons’ 2-0 ouster of Wells...
