Forecaster: Michael’s top five moments / All-Stars

Michael’s top five moments -Portland edition

5) Sea Lions roar into playoffs
The Maine Girls’ Academy softball team was enhanced by the addition of a few talented players from Falmouth and after some initial growing pains, the “Sea Lions” hit their stride late in the season, learned how to win close games and rode late upset wins over Noble and South Portland into a surprise playoff berth. MGA/Falmouth then had Noble on the ropes in the Class A South preliminary round, leading going into the bottom of the seventh before the Knights rallied to end their memorable run. The co-op team was considered a success and expects to return in 2018.

Michael’s top five moments -Portland edition

2) Portland softball raises the bar
In 2016, Portland’s softball team returned to prominence, posted a winning record and made the playoffs. That served as a mere appetizer for this spring, when the Bulldogs emerged as the second-best team in Class A South. After a 14-2 regular season, Portland’s best since 2001, the Bulldogs earned the No. 2 seed for the playoffs and eliminated South Portland and Thornton Academy to reach the regional final for the first time since 2004. Along the way, pitching ace Jess Brown became the first Bulldog to ever earn Gatorade Player of the Year honors. While Portland was ultimately ousted by eventual state champion Scarborough in the Class A South Final, it has established itself as a regular contender the highest level.

Forecaster: Michael’s top five moments -Southern edition

2) Scarborough softball earns its coronation
For three seasons, Scarborough’s softball team ran roughshod over its hapless opposition in the regular season, but would either be stymied in the regional or state final. This spring, nothing would stop the determined Red Storm. Scarborough again went 16-0 in the regular season, was never seriously tested and earned the top seed yet again for the Class A South playoffs. There, the Red Storm didn’t allow a single run in wins over Gorham and Windham in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively. After falling in the regional final in 2016, this year’s team wasn’t about to give underdog Portland life, racing to a 5-0 lead before prevailing, 8-3. The state final versus Skowhegan was the final step and senior ace Lilly Volk, in her final game before pitching at the University of Maine next year, threw a shutout as Scarborough prevailed, 5-0, capturing that elusive title.
