Monday Morning Quarterback:

Local teams have a lot on the line in final two weeks

For good or bad, the first year of Heal points standings determining all playoff seeding in football is creating some interesting possibilities, and all the more reason to pay close attention the final two weeks of the regular season.

In Class A North, 6-0 Edward Little would have home-field advantage clinched throughout the playoffs if this were 2016. But 3-3 Windham and Lewiston remain close enough in the Heals — and just so happen to be the Red Eddies' final two opponents — to raise the stakes for the current top seed.

Even if they don't overtake EL, Windham and Lewiston will be content with the No. 2 seed, a bye and a home semifinal. Besides EL, both have low or no-Heal-value opponents remaining — Lewiston at Portland this week and Windham hosting Bangor for the finale.

KJ football notes 10/9:

Even after win, Winthrop/Monmouth sees room for improvement
Oak Hill loses leader Pierce for season.
A four-game losing streak has Oak Hill, in coach Stacen Doucette’s words, “fighting for (their) playoff lives.” That fight will have to continue without one of the Raiders’ key pieces.

MS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK for 10/9:

Messalonskee airs it out in key play
Rare air attack works for Eagles in win over Brewer

Lawrence character building game
Friday’s 23-20 win over Brunswick wasn’t a character building game for Lawrence. Rather, the game revealed the Bulldogs character, coach John Hersom said. “The kids definitely have that character to hang in there,” Hersom said. “We have that leadership.

Albee Never Say Never

MT DESERT ISLAND, ME (WABI) Croix Albee is a senior on the MDI football team. The team has been on a great run.... last year and again this year.

But Croix has only been able to watch. He ended last season with a knee injury and a knee injury kept him out the first half of this season too.

But he's back... and this play is the reason he is so valuable. The fullback simply willed his way into the end zone.

SJ Monday Morning Quarterback 10/16:

Recovery is Hornets' goal after first loss

The Leavitt Hornets went into the start of last week aware they would be without several key contributors for Friday night's game against the top team in Class C North, Mount Desert Island.

"We knew we were going to be up against it with a lot of moving parts," Leavitt coach Mike Hathaway said.

MDI won, 36-22, but the losses kept piling up for the Hornets. Already without QB Tim Albert, tight end/defensive end Cole Morin, nose tackle Cole Melanson and running back Dasean Calder, they also lost two-way tackle Aidan Parmenter after the game's first series and tight end/linebacker Allen Peabody in the second quarter.

"Not having three of our (defensive) front five (Morin, Melanson and Parmenter) was tough to overcome," Hathaway said.

October Football drama at a fever pitch-Northern edition

Football
With “Rivalry Week” upon us, all four Forecaster Country football teams are jockeying for playoff positioning.

Falmouth improved to 5-2 and third behind Marshwood and Kennebunk in the Class B South Heal Points standings following a 48-6 home win over Gorham Friday. A 24-yard touchdown run from Garret Aube, a 44-yard TD pass from Jack Bryant to Brady Douglas and a 9-yard Bryant scoring run made it 20-0 after one quarter. Aube had TD runs of 48- and 2-yards and Riley Reed added a 70-yard touchdown scamper to made it 41-0 at halftime. Bryant’s 22-yard scoring run accounted for the final score. Falmouth hosts rival Greely in the “Battle of Route 9” Friday night.

Speaking of Greely, the Rangers made it five wins a row last Friday with a 20-7 home win over York. Greely fell behind, 7-0, after one quarter, but came to life in the second period, as Joey Casella’s 27-yard touchdown run and Shane DeWolfe’s extra point tied it, Tim Coyle’s 23-yard TD run and DeWolfe’s PAT put the Rangers ahead and a 10-yard Casella scoring run accounted for the final score.

October Football drama at a fever pitch-Portland edition

Football
Portland’s football team was the lone local squad to prevail last weekend.

The Bulldogs won their second game in a row and improved to 2-5 with a dramatic 17-14 overtime win over Lewiston.

After the Blue Devils took a 7-0 lead in the second quarter, Portland tied the score on a 13-yard scamper by quarterback Terion Moss.

“The linebackers kept blitzing and blitzing and I had to run it,” said Moss, who ran for 158 yards and two scores on 31 carries. “I didn’t have time to throw that much.”

Lewiston went back on top in the third quarter on a long touchdown run, but a 6-yard Moss TD run tied things up at 14-14 with 4:21 to play.
