Wells: uses stout defense to edge Cape Elizabeth, 14-7

Warriors run over Ramblers

...Wells graduated 19 seniors from the team that won Class C with a 10-1 record. But they didn't miss a beat in the season-opener with the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Potter running through defenders for 115 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries.

"I feel like we have something to prove," Potter said. "We've lost a lot of guys. It's a pretty new team, so we've got to show that we've still got what it takes."

"I get why some people would say you've got a target on your back (moving down a class after winning a state title)," Wells coach Tim Roche said. "But we've spent 12 years of playing up (a class). The way things went this year, it just happened that we fall into 'D'. We're a school now (that's) close to under 400 kids. We're not growing in size. Our numbers are down on the sidelines, even, like a lot of people."

Wells runs over Winthrop/Monmouth

...The Warriors, who dropped down to Class D after winning the Class C state championship, open their season with a 46-0 win.

...Wells, which won the Class C state championship last fall, made an impressive debut in Class D by amassing 340 rushing yards in a 46-0 victory.

“I thought what we showed was how physical and strong we are,” Roche said. “We have a fairly large group of kids that lift all the time, so they’re strong kids.”

The Warriors were equally strong on defense, holding the Ramblers to 100 yards.

“We saw that on film,” Winthrop Coach Dave St. Hilaire said. “They run the wing-T very well, they throw a lot at you, and their fullback’s a horse.”

Wells uses stout defense to edge Cape Elizabeth, 14-7
The Warriors improve to 3-0, while the Capers suffer their first loss.

...“It’s a huge game,” said Wells Coach Tim Roche. “And boy, was it physical out there.”

The game wasn’t decided until Michael Wrigley intercepted a tipped pass with 38 seconds left. Wells moved to 3-0 in Class D South. Cape Elizabeth dropped to 2-1 in Class C South.

The Warriors’ defense loomed large, especially in the fourth quarter. Wells held a 14-7 lead into the final quarter, courtesy of a 2-yard touchdown run by Tyler Bridge with 7:04 left in the third. Then it took everything the Warriors had on defense to hold on.
