October drama at a fever pitch

Falmouth got the field hockey postseason off to a fast start with a preliminary round victory Saturday. The Yachtsmen finished the regular season 6-8 after a 1-0 overtime loss at Thornton Academy and a 1-0 home victory over Sanford. Emma Cohen had the goal against the Spartans. Falmouth wound up ninth in Class A South and went to eighth-seeded Marshwood Saturday for a prelim. After Stone Carmichael gave the Yachtsmen an early lead, the Hawks tied the game in the second half and the game went to overtime. There, in the second OT, Falmouth prevailed, 2-1, on a goal from Grace Soucy.

The Yachtsmen advanced to a showdown at top-ranked Scarborough (13-1) in the quarterfinals Tuesday evening (see theforecaster.net for game story). Back on Sept. 1, the Red Storm won in Falmouth, 3-1. In the only previous playoff encounter, Scarborough edged Falmouth, 1-0, in the 2015 quarterfinals. If the Yachtsmen were able to spring another upset, they’d visit either No. 4 Biddeford (12-2) or No. 5 Kennebunk (11-4) in the semifinals. Falmouth lost to both teams at home this fall: 1-0 to the Rams and 2-0 to the Tigers. The Yachtsmen have no playoff history with either team.

October Field hockey drama at a fever pitch-Portland edition

Cheverus was the only local field hockey team to make the playoffs.

The Stags completed an 11-3 regular season (their third consecutive double digit victory regular season) last Wednesday with a 1-0 home win over Noble behind Bella Booth’s goal. Cheverus is the No. 3 seed in Class A South and will host No. 6 Westbrook (11-4) in the quarterfinals Wednesday afternoon (see theforecaster.net for game story). On Sept. 29, in a game played at Fitzpatrick Stadium, the Blue Blazes beat the Stags in overtime, 3-2. The teams have met three prior times in the playoffs and all three games needed more than 60 minutes of regulation. Cheverus holds a 2-1 edge, including a 2-1 victory (in two rounds of penalty corners) in the 2015 Western A quarterfinals.
