Portland-Deering rivalry runs deep

...Bulldogs fans who helped pack the stands at Deering’s Memorial Stadium flooded onto the field in celebration while the Rams headed to the locker room, many of them in tears.

The large crowds and wild enthusiasm are typical for Portland-Deering games – a rivalry dating back 45 years to the advent of both soccer programs. Portland Coach Rocco Frenzilli, who helped start the school’s soccer program in 1972, said last year’s playoff game was one of the most intense he has ever seen.

“We watched that goal go in, and we all go, ‘Oh no,'” Frenzilli said of the disallowed goal. “Emotions were up and down. The game wasn’t over until it was absolutely over.

Portland pulls out 2-1 win in OT over Bonny Eagle

...Portland had the advantage in shots on goal (20-3), corner kicks (7-1) and ball possession. But the Scots jammed the defensive zone with 10 players to stymie the skilled Bulldogs. They blocked numerous shots and cleared a couple at the goal line.

“(Bonny Eagle Coach) Larry (Robertson) had his kids ready,” said Portland Coach Rocco Frenzilli, whose team improved to 6-1. “He had a perfect game plan for us – defensive oriented and ready for the possibility to break it out against us. We fortunately had enough to quell their attacks against us.”

Robertson explained that he leaned on an experienced back line.

“We have good leadership (on the back line),” said Robertson, singling out David Byrne, James Conley, Deytric Enking and Ethan Hamilton. “I think they knew what the game plan was and they executed it.” ... nny-eagle/
