No. 7 Poland holds off No. 10 Greely in OT

... "Our passes, and spreading out, it opened up the field a lot," Nawass said. "We're playing so hard, we're playing for our lives, basically. All that mattered was getting (another) goal in."

With nothing decided before regulation time expired, the teams headed into overtime, setting the stage for Nawass' fantastic finish.

"Hwida has to be the calmest player I've ever met," Hediger said. "She's so much the opposite of me, and most field hockey players. She had that patience, that calmness, and then she just attacks. And when Hwida is involved in the play, it's never over until the whistle blows."

Field hockey playoffs begin with mixed results

Freeport’s Izzy Masison gives the ball a ride during the Falcons’ 3-0 win over Cape Elizabeth in Saturday’s Class B South prelim.

The field hockey playoffs are underway and local teams figure to be a big part of the story this postseason.

Freeport and Greely kicked things off Saturday in the preliminary round with the Falcons advancing and the Rangers being eliminated.

Falmouth, North Yarmouth Academy and Yarmouth were preparing to play quarterfinal round games at press time.

Westbrook field hockey an intriguing surprise this season
The Blazes often walk a tightrope, with six of their 11 victories earned by a 1-0 score.

... The Blazes, who finished 11-2-1, enter the tournament’s quarterfinal round as one of the more intriguing teams in a season that saw all of the top teams lose at least two games.

“This is probably the most even season I’ve ever seen in all of my years,” said Murphy, who is in her 25th season as the Blazes’ head coach.

Westbrook will play fifth-seeded Massabesic (10-3-1) in a quarterfinal game at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The Blazes defeated the Mustangs 1-0 on Oct. 7 on a late goal by Maddison LeBeau.

Strong goalies lead to strong playoff chances

... The tri-county area boasts a handful of solid, state-title-contending field hockey teams this season, and as the playoffs begin in earnest this week, all of the area teams with title aspirations have a common denominator: A keeper who instills confidence in the team in front of her.

"It's absolutely huge," St. Dom's coach Brian Kay said. "When we made a run in 2006, and in 2003, we had a strong goalie then, too."

Kay's keeper this year is Abby Slonina. The junior backstop has already seen her fair share of action over the past three years as the Saints have rebuilt their program from the ground up.

Sun Journal Field hockey Playoff Preview...

Class A

It's been so automatic to hand the tag of "favorite" to Skowhegan for the past two decades, it feels strange to consider the Indians might finally miss the North final, let alone the state title game. But that's exactly what Paula Doughty and crew are looking at, having earned the No. 4 seed in A North after a three-loss campaign.

Two of those losses, of course, came to No. 1 seed Mt. Blue, which as been slowly building its program under coach Judy Harmon. The Cougars enter the playoffs on top, having only a tie against Cony as a blemish to their record. They avenged that tie in style later in the season with a 7-1 drubbing.

Triple Threat: Traip, Marshwood, York eye deep runs in FH playoffs

... “Not so much surprised,” said Cook. “I knew this was a great group. Just excited to be a part of it. I think the girls coming back from last year knew they had a target on their back from some of these Class C teams that had played them — St. Dom’s in the playoffs, for one.

“I expected to be good. I watched these girls all last year and knew what they were capable of.”

The question now is whether the Rangers can be great.

Mt. Blue field hockey looks to unseat traditional powers

... Mt. Blue is 13-0-1 and wound up atop the Heal Point standings, a perch usually occupied by defending state champion Skowhegan, which has won 13 of the last 15 Class A state titles. The few times Skowhegan hasn’t owned the top spot, Messalonskee of Oakland has been there.

Since 1996, the Class A North titlist has been either Skowhegan or Messalonskee.

The 1995 Cony High of Augusta team was the last team other than Skowhegan or Messalonskee to to represent Class A North in the state championship game.

Winthrop stops Mount View in C North field hockey quarterfinal

... The Ramblers had other plans.

“They had really good shots, and we did a really good job of getting it out, knowing what was on the line,” Hajduk said.

“It starts with Corinna (Coulton) in goal,” Winthrop coach Jessica Merrill said. “She definitely is our senior leader back there. We definitely had some mental lapses, where they kept getting corners. I’ve got a lot of senior leadership back there, and just being able to stop those plays, to break up those plays, it really was a huge mental boost for us.”

Winthrop field hockey beats Mount View to climb into semis
Ramblers beat Mustangs, 3-1, in Class C North quarters

... “We met their intensity,” Merrill said. “I don’t think we played our best today, considering the conditions and what they brought, but I’m really pleased at how well they stuck together.”

The quarterfinal round had become a stumbling block for the Ramblers, who made back-to-back Class C finals in 2011-2012 but were one-and-done the past two seasons. The Ramblers never trailed Tuesday, however, as they snapped the brief skid of early exits.

Winthrop whacks Mount View for playoff win

... Moriah Hajduk got solid contact on her hit from just inside the circle. The ball found its way to Emily Molino, who inserted the ball, and the senior easily tapped in the opening goal with no defender near her.

"I was really surprised that it was just wide open," Molino said. "Usually I'm double, triple-teamed. They're always like, 'get on 20.'"

"There should have been somebody there and there wasn't," Mount View coach Gloria Hewitt said.
