Yarmouth handles Fryeburg Academy, advances to semifinals

YARMOUTH—A month ago, Yarmouth’s field hockey team started fast in a home tilt against Fryeburg Academy, then did next to nothing for the rest of the game before holding on for a 2-1 victory.

Tuesday afternoon, in a Class B South quarterfinal, the Clippers hosted the Raiders again and again, they started strong.

But this time, Yarmouth didn’t let up and as a result, the Clippers are off to the semifinals for the third time in four years.

Yarmouth took the lead in the game’s fourth minute, as junior Sophie McGrath scored from senior Chloe Noack on a penalty corner.

Yarmouth advances to semifinals
The Clippers open a 4-1 halftime lead and defeat Fryeburg Academy.

... “We are a complete team and anybody can step up any given day,” Yarmouth Coach Amy Ashley said. “Its great for four different girls to score. It’s going to be hard to mark us that way.”

“There’s not one person to stop,” said McDowell, who also had an assist. “We’ve got so many strengths from different people.”

The Clippers, who won 2-1 at Fryeburg on Sept. 16, this time moved into an early 3-0 lead.

“It was just one of the games where it wasn’t our day,” Fryeburg Coach Dede Frost said. “We got here later and just before the game we had an injury.”

Marshwood field hockey responds, advances in Class A South playoffs

... “Obviously I didn’t like being down a goal, but they’re just too competitive,” Marshwood coach Lisa Truesdale said. “I have so much faith in this team. It’s a heavily-laded senior team that has a lot of sprit and commitment, and I think that’s what carries us through.”

Cheverus (11-5) added only more shot against Marshwood goalie Shannon Giblin (five saves) in the first half before Costin tied the game at 1-1 off a direct shot from the right side 5:11 before halftime.

Making her playoff debut, Celine Lawrence’s blast past Cheverus goalie Kat Kane (11 saves) gave Marshwood a 2-1 lead with 23:30 left in the second half.

“I didn’t think the pass was going to get to me — it was like a Hail Mary — and then I was just looking to someone to tip it in because (Kane) is very good and I didn’t think it would go in,” Lawrence said. “I was looking for Leah (Glidden) at the post, but it just went in

Marshwood advances to Class A South semis
Hannah Costin scores two goals as the Hawks defeat Cheverus, 4-

... Marshwood controlled the pace throughout, holding Cheverus to just five shots, three coming in a late flurry.

“We had a great year, we couldn’t have squeezed more out of them,” said Stags Coach Sally Cloutier. “We went up against a great team and we contended. We just didn’t have enough. They really shut us down in the midfield and they executed. We just couldn’t get it going offensively.”

Still, Cheverus jumped to a 1-0 lead when Caroline Ford stuck in a rebound at the left post off a penalty corner 5:09 into the game. It was just the third time this year that the Hawks have been behind.

O'Brien leads Traip field hockey back to regional semis

... “That’s the best we’ve ever played, I’d have to say,” said senior midfielder Kiara Perez. “Everyone played great.”

The Rangers (12-2-1) will play at No. 2 St. Dominic Academy (12-2-1) in the regional semifinals on Friday. The teams split a pair of tight games during the regular season, each winning on its home field.

It’s the challenge the Rangers knew they wanted as soon as they saw the playoff bracket, and they went out Tuesday against a team they hadn’t seen during the regular season and did their part to earn it.

Kennebunk advances with shutout
The Rams down Poland 2-0 and will meet Yarmouth in a Class B South semifinal.

... Gregoire notched her first goal with 13:07 remaining in the first half.

Ashton Sturtevant of Poland (9-6-1) made the initial save before Gregoire scored on the rebound – a shot that went off a defender and trickled in.

“Britney is a very dominant player. She works very hard in practice,” said Billings.

“She’s just decided that this is going to be her year and she’s steadily progressed from her freshman year to now her junior year, where she’s just a force to be reckoned with.”

Gregoire added her second goal with 4:28 remaining in the game. It came off a great corner play.

Cony corners Edward Little for quarterfinal win
Delaney Keithley goal the difference in Class A North playoff matchup.

... “This was huge,” Cony coach Holly Daigle said. “This year especially, there’s a really strong top eight (in Class A North), and you kind of look at the seeds and where people go in, and it really doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot. We saw (Edward Little) not too, too long ago, and we knew the caliber of team they were.”

Like the only regular season game between the two teams, Cony and Edward Little were separated by only a goal. And like that game in late September, the Rams had plenty of opportunities but couldn’t quite crack the Red Eddies’ defense as much as they would have liked

Cony edges Edward Little, 2-1, in A North quarterfinals

AUGUSTA — A well-executed penalty corner by Cony early in the second half of Tuesday's Class A North field hockey quarterfinal with Edward Little nearly resulted in a tie-breaking goal.

"It just went wide, and one of the girls on the sideline (said), "Aw, that was perfect,'" Cony coach Holly Daigle said. "I was, like, 'That was almost perfect.'"

Practice made perfect for the third-seeded Rams as Delaney Keithley scored what proved to be the game-winning goal on their next penalty corner to edge No. 6 Edward Little, 2-1.

Messalonskee field hockey rolls past Hampden
Eagles cruise into Class A North semifinals.

... “That was a great game for us. I think we’re really starting to get our good passing lanes,” Messalonskee coach Katie McLaughlin said. “It was a really good showing for us, I think, a really good confidence booster. A lot of our forwards scored today. They’ve been struggling a little bit.”

Ahead 2-0 at halftime, Messalonskee doubled its lead in the first five minutes of the second half, when Lydia Dexter scored the first two of her four second half goals.

“Our passing was better than it has been all season,” Dexter said.

Winslow stuns No. 2 Gardiner in penalty corner round
Black Raiders advance to Class B North semifinals.

GARDINER — The Winslow field hockey team believed it could play with Gardiner following an overtime game a couple of weeks ago. Tuesday, the Black Raiders confirmed their suspicions.

Backed by an outstanding performance from senior goalie Hope Winkin and two goals from sophomore Anna Petrovic, No. 7 Winslow upset No. 2 Gardiner 4-3 in penalty corners in a Class B North quarterfinal game at Somerville Field.

Winslow (9-6-1) advances to play No. 3 Belfast, while Gardiner concluded its season at 13-2-0.

St. Dom's holds off Sacopee Valley in Class C South quarterfinal

... Ultimately, though, two second-half goals helped lift the Saints past the Hawks, 3-2, despite Cormier's 16 saves.

In the first game of the season, the Saints defeated the Hawks by six goals, but Tuesday's contest was far from a romp.

"We've changed," Sacopee Valley coach Jaci Ritter said. "When they came to Sacopee, it was a 1-0 game, back and forth between the 25 (yard markers). It was what we were expecting today and that's what we got. They just had that little extra edge. They went around the post and we went through the post."

Foxcroft Academy field hockey rolls past Hermon 7-0

DOVER-FOXCROFT - The Ponies of Foxcroft Academy were the best team in Class A North field hockey this season, and proved their prowess in the quarterfinals Wednesday.

http://www.foxbangor.com/sports/item/17 ... hermon-7-0

Foxcroft field hockey team ousts Hermon to remain undefeated

“Obviously we put the ball in the cage, which is what we needed to do,” said Foxcroft coach Stephanie Smith, whose team is seeking its first regional crown since winning the 2013 Class C state championship.

“I felt like we had a few defensive breakdowns and just seemed maybe nerved up because the usual things we do — going around opponents and using our stickwork — we kind of lacked today,” she said.

The victory improves Foxcroft’s record to 15-0 and leaves the Ponies as one of just two undefeated and untied teams statewide this fall along with Class B South top seed and two-time defending state champion York, 15-0 and the winner of 51-straight matches overall after its 8-0 quarterfinal victory over Freeport.
