KJ Football Notebook 9/11

- Tragedy becomes source of inspiration for Gardiner
- Cony looks for answers on offense.
- The Oak Hill offense is clicking, and Cruz Poirier is a big reason why.

Head to head: Taking stock of Leavitt, D South and chicken tenders

...But anyone who watched the Hornets' growth through last year's uncharacteristic 2-7 rebuild probably anticipated they would rebound pretty quickly. They played two of the better teams in B South, Westbrook and Falmouth, tough during the regular season, then lost to the top seed and eventual regional champions, Kennebunk, by two points. The talent was clearly there. They just needed to pay some dues.

Having QB Tim Albert taking the starters' reps in practice after splitting them last year has obviously not only helped him but the entire offense, just in terms of continuity alone. And the offensive line is starting to look like the dominant lines of past state championship teams led by the likes of Matt Pellerin and Mitch Cobb.

It's virtually impossible for the offense to keep up the pace its had over the last six quarter. I'm almost more interested to see if the defense stacks up to the unheralded defenses that were vital to those teams, too. They've been pretty impressive against the run, first against York and obviously last week.

... A WEEK after beating Messalonskee’s run-heavy offense in monsoon conditions, the Kennebunk defense will have to shift gears against Falmouth’s spread offense. Both teams are 2-0 in Class B South.

“The thing that impresses me the most is they have a lot of athletes, a very athletic group. And (Falmouth QB Jack) Bryant, he spreads the ball around,” said Kennebunk Coach Joe Rafferty.

New head football coaches make quick adjustments
Four central Maine coaches look to make own mark on programs.

...Jake Rogers at Nokomis, Nate Quirion at Mt. Blue, and Rick Leary at Mount View join Libby as first-year head coaches. Each has his team 1-1. Getting that first win was important, but each knows one win is a small piece of the larger picture when it comes to program-building.

“The kids kept it in perspective. They can accomplish a heck of a lot more,” Rogers said of Nokomis’ season-opening win at Hampden. “I’m usually ready to move on a minute after the win. I’m the same after a loss. After the game at MCI (a 12-0 loss for the Warriors), I was thinking about the next game against Oceanside.”

This past week, Mt. Blue earned its first win under Quirion. Like Nokomis, the Cougars defeated Hampden.

Play of the Week - Old Town's Hayes with the big grab

OLD TOWN - This week's top play in football hails from Old Town, where Ethan Hayes made quite the catch.

In the first quarter, Hayes found himself in the flat, and made a grab he'll never forget

SJ Monday Morning Quarterback 9/18:

- Edward Little's strength has been its strength
TSenior quarterback Grant Hartley chalked it up to the team having a little more experience and better perspective. "It's just about overcoming adversity, being older, being more mature and just knowing that it's still early. There's still plenty of game left," Hartley said. "Just flush it down the toilet and forget about it and just keep playing."

- Vikings bounced back in Bangor

- Lewiston Devils benefiting from tough competition

Head to Head: Instant replay therapy session and possible Class E regrets

...Randy: Who are you, Dr. Phil? All right, I am starting to feel a little unburdened. One other thing that's grinding my gears is Traip Academy forfeiting the rest of its season due for player safety (really, a lack of players).

I salute Traip for trying to keep its football program alive and giving Class E a go this year. And I guess we should have expected this, if not from Traip than someone else in Class E. These are, after all, football programs trying to get off life support. But Traip did no one else in Class E any favors by signing up then pulling the plug nearly halfway through the year.

I feel bad for the Traip kids, but I feel worse for the kids at Maranacook who saw a quarter of their season vanish into thin air overnight because they had two games scheduled with Traip. Telstar and Camden Hills got a raw deal, too. It's tough enough to build a sustainable program as it is. Losing a chunk of your schedule makes it that much more difficult.

Portland, Brunswick seek turnarounds
The Bulldogs and Dragons are both off to unexpected 0-3 starts but haven't lost belief in themselves.

...Portland Coach Jim Hartman said when a team has high turnover among starters, the short preseason makes preparation difficult. The first four days of practice are either no-contact or limited contact, and his team’s first scrimmage was on Day 6.

“We didn’t have any time to develop. We practiced five days and then we (scrimmaged) Scarborough,” Hartman said. “It hasn’t affected us in the past because we had a lot of experience. Next year, when we have 17-18 seniors coming back, we’ll be the team with the edge.”

“Then, once you get into a real game, teams like us and Portland, the other teams are frothing at the mouth to get a piece of you and they don’t cut you any slack,” said Brunswick Coach Dan Cooper. “They’re happy to kick you when you’re down.”
