Falmouth comes out sizzling, eliminates Gorham in quarterfinals

FALMOUTH—Falmouth’s field hockey team found itself in an unfamiliar spot Wednesday evening.

Wearing the bulls-eye as the top seed in the Class A South playoff field.

The Yachtsmen, ranked first in any class for the first time since 1977, could have been nervous hosting No. 8 Gorham, a team much better than its ranking, but they came right out and showed that they’re in it to win it and that they won’t be content until they attain their ultimate goal of a piece of hardware.

No. 1 Falmouth advances
The Yachtsmen beat No. 8 Gorham to advance to the semifinals.

... “This is our first turf game of the year,” Gorham Coach Becky Manson-Rioux said. “We played all of our games on grass and it’s a much faster game on turf.”

Most of the game was played on Gorham’s side of the midfield line as the Rams found it difficult to move the ball deep into Falmouth’s defensive zone.

“We knew their midfield was strong,” Manson-Rioux said. “When we could get through and had some passes we couldn’t quite get inside the 25. They have excellent stick skills and really hard drives.”

NYA eliminated by Lisbon again

LISBON—Outside of family and friends, no one will be happier when Lisbon senior Chase Collier graduates next spring than the North Yarmouth Academy field hockey team.

That’s because for the second year in a row, Collier sent the Panthers packing from the postseason.

A year after scoring a dramatic double overtime goal to eliminate NYA in the semifinals, Collier proved to be too much to handle again in Wednesday afternoon’s Class C South quarterfinal.

Collier's goals lift Lisbon to win over North Yarmouth in Class C quarterfinals

... “I just kind of saw the ball, and both the balls, I just kind of slammed it in,” Collier said. “Nothing special about it, I just knew that we really had to get a couple more goals in there to really secure our spot to go into the next round of the playoffs.”

Lisbon (9-5-0), the fourth seed, advances to the C South semifinals, where it will have its third shot at No. 1 Oak Hill (13-1-0) later this week.

Massabesic rolls to quarterfinal win
The fifth-seeded Mustangs score four goals off penalty corners and storm past Westbrook for a 5-1 win

... “I thought the kids played well overall,” said Murphy. “We just didn’t bring it to the competition (like) Massabesic (did).”

The Mustangs were exceptional, winning most loose balls and burying their chances.

“I think this showed what we can do when we work together,” said Desrochers. “Now we’re entering our next one-game season.”

Massabesic comes to play, upsets Westbrook

... “That’s a team that – every girl on the field is a good field hockey player,” said Westbrook co-head coach Theresa Hendrix, new to the program this year. “Unfortunately they came out a little bit stronger than us today.”

“It just wasn’t our day,” said Beth Murphy, the Blazes’ longtime head coach. “Massabesic came out hungry. I’ll give it to them.”

Massabesic applied a good deal of offensive pressure throughout the matchup, but especially in the first half. The Mustangs trapped the Blazes in their own end for long stretches – though, to Westbrook’s credit, they defended ably for quite some times.

Scarborough reaches Class A South semifinals
The Red Storm come away with a 4-1 victory against Biddeford

... “She just took advantage of the opportunity to possess the ball and to create space for herself,” said Mariello. “She reads the defense very well, and both sees and gets to the open space very well. She’s aware of where her teammates are and looks to create open shots for herself or others.”

Scarborough used a solid passing game throughout to limit opportunities for Biddeford (6-10), which managed just three shots.

“The game plan was really just to stay low and come in attacking from the left side to the right,” said Levesque. “We just wanted to keep using all the things we’ve gone over in practice and keep executing those things. Offensively and defensively, we played a great game.”

Skowhegan shakes off slow half, Oxford Hills
Indians pull away in 2nd half to reach Class A North semifinals.

SKOWHEGAN — None of the members of this year’s Skowhegan field hockey team were even born the last time the Indians bowed out in a quarterfinal playoff game.

Still, they got a little reminder from coach Paula Doughty during intermission Wednesday in a scoreless game against Oxford Hills.

“I brought it up at halftime,” Doughty said. “I said ‘do you want to be the first team to lose a quarterfinal game in 25 years?”

Extra effort nets Lawrence field hockey playoff win
Macie Larouche scores in double overtime as Bulldogs beat Old Town in Class B North quarterfinals.

FAIRFIELD — By any measurable statistic, the Old Town field hockey team should have walked away with a Class B North quarterfinal victory Wednesday afternoon. The Coyotes enjoyed decided advantages in shots on goal, penalty corners and time of possession.

Where the Coyotes fell short came in the intangibles.

“We played with such heart at the end,” Lawrence coach Shawna Robinson said after her fourth-seeded Bulldogs ousted No. 5 Old Town, 2-1, in double overtime. “They didn’t quit, and that’s what we’ve been asking from them all year. Don’t quit, don’t quit. I’m so proud of them.”

Oak Hill field hockey uses balanced attack to sink Mountain Valley
Top-seeded Raiders blank Falcons in Class C South quarterfinal game.

LITCHFIELD — The Oak Hill field hockey team, says coach Betsy Gilbert, relies on a well-balanced offense to keep it rolling.

“No superstars,” Gilbert said. “In fact, all of my 10 field players have scored this season, and not just scored a little. Nine of them have five or more goals. It’s definitely uncommon. Usually, if you have four or five players who score, that’s a good season.”

Oak Hill dominates Mountain Valley

... "They are a great duo. The way that they cut on and wait for that perfect second to anticipate that shot and even send it across the field, they've been doing it all year," Oak Hill coach Betsy Gilbert said.

A key to their success has been knowing where each other is, and how well they communicate. Playing side by side at these positions for the the past three years has paid off. Wednesday was no different.

"Yeah, we definitely communicate well," Fuller and Wright said simultaneously.

Leavitt moves on with win over Spruce Mountain

... This year, it's the Hornets who are moving on with a 3-0 victory at home.

The Hornets won last year, 1-0, in the regional semifinal round, while Spruce Mountain won in the regional semis in 2014, 2-0.

Leavitt (11-4) won the only regular season matchup between the clubs, 2-1, on Oct. 6.

"I think we were all a little nervous," Leavitt senior Allie Belaire said. "There's been a little tradition, whoever wins the regular season loses in the playoffs. We finally broke that tradition."

Mt. Blue gets past Brewer

... The Cougars still found a way to punch several holes in the Witches’ fortified defense and come away with a 3-0 victory. Mt. Blue (14-0-1) goes on to face No. 4 Skowhegan (11-3-1) — which beat Oxford Hills 4-0 — on Friday at Caldwell Field.

Mt. Blue coach Jody Harmon knew all along what was ailing the Cougars’ offense. After all, Mt. Blue spent most of the game in front of Brewer’s net, aggravating Witches goalie Michelle Maybury, who made 13 saves.

“We were definitely flat,” Harmon said. “The intensity was not where I wanted it to be. We were a little too watching, not attacking like we should.
