Cramps, Bucksport can't stop Francis and Lisbon — WITH PHOTO GALLERY

..."(Francis) is tough. He made us look bad in tackling, but a lot of it his him," said Bucksport coach Joel Sankey, whose team was playing without top lineman David Gross (knee injury). "He's big. He's powerful. We didn't have an answer for him."

The Bucks had trouble finding answers for Lisbon's swarming defense, too. Led by tackles Tony Whittemore (fumble recovery) and Hunter Job (sack) and linebacker Cole Bolduc (sack, fumble recovery, forced fumble), the Greyhounds consistently got a push up the middle and forced Carmichael to throw on the run.

The Greyhounds' defense produced four fumbles, recovering three, and had an interception.

"It was just opening up well," said Francis, a linebacker. "We do a lot of defensive practice and a lot of of work in practice. We do a pretty good job of scouting and know everything they're running, so we know our responsibilities."

Lisbon:: runs over Poland

Lisbon football runs over Poland

...On Saturday against Poland at Thompson Field, Greyhound linebackers Dakota McIver, Cole Bolduc and Cam Bourget took sure tackling a step further, punishing the Knights' running backs nearly each time they touched the ball with booming hits.

The result: A dominating 50-8 Lisbon victory on a sun-drenched day in front of a packed home crowd, giving the Greyhounds a 2-0 start to the season.

McIver and Bolduc led Lisbon with eight tackles each. Both forced a Poland (0-2) fumble as the Knights put the ball on the ground five times in all, losing two. Bourget had seven solo tackles as the Lisbon defensive starters held the visitors to just 79 total yards of offense through three quarters.

Greyhounds hold on to nip Falcons, 22-20

...Harriman scampered 39 yards on a fake punt to set up what proved to be the winning touchdown — a four-yard run by Lucas Francis late in the third quarter — and the Greyhound defense made two big stops in the fourth quarter to edge Mountain Valley, 22-20, in the first regular-season meeting of the two storied programs on Friday night.

Francis rushed for 210 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries to lead the Greyhounds (3-0). Isaiah Thompson added 106 yards on 22 carries for Lisbon.

But it was Harriman's long run on 4th-and-10 from the Falcons' 43 that gave Lisbon the edge.

"The plan was for either a run or a pass (with Francis running a pass pattern)," Harriman said. "Lucas told me 'If I'm open, I'm open.' I didn't want to take a chance, but that right side was open. My boys blocked for me and that's all I need. It literally was all blocking. I can't take credit for that at all."

Lisbon:: shakes off Dirigo

Lisbon football shakes off Dirigo

...What followed was a solid Lisbon performance en route to a 34-0 victory over the injury-plagued Cougars on Saturday.

“That play was important and I did it for my team,” said Doyle, who had two catches on the day for 66 yards and two touchdowns. “I just wanted to make up for the drop. Our passing game was important today.”

“We are working with Henry on where he needs to be and consistently run his routes,” Lisbon (5-0) coach Chris Kates said. “He is a good athlete and he is working hard to get better.”

Francis, a first-year quarterback in his own right, had a day, throwing for 170 yards (8-of-13) with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Lisbon:: St. Dom's Dick gets crash course in Lisbon traditio

St. Dom's Dick gets crash course in Lisbon football tradition

...It's been a difficult but exhilarating two-plus months since he found out he would be an autumn Greyhound. Dick would have been happy to just have football back in his life. But playing it for Lisbon is taking his appreciation for the game to a new level.

"It's better than I could have ever imagined," Dick said. "Just all of the people... Playing on (Thompson Field) is amazing."

Lisbon coach Chris Kates was glad to welcome Dick, and hopes more will see how their fellow Saint is fitting in and want to follow for seasons to come.

"I was happy to have those opportunities as a high school student and I don't want to deny anyone else the opportunity to play football," said Kates, who played for Lisbon. "Any time you can bring some athletes into your program and get more competition...You know, we're only 350 kids, so we're one of the smaller schools in Class D now, it obviously was good for our program as well as (St. Dom's)."

Lisbon:: wears out stubborn Spruce Mountain

Lisbon wears out stubborn Spruce Mountain

...“They are a very good team. They are well coached, played hard. They were physical. What can I say — just smash-mouth football.”

No question about that in the first half, where offensive drives ended up sputtering out thanks to penalties on both sides of the ball.

But that’s when both teams started making things happen in the second quarter.

Lisbon ended its drought on offense when the Greyhounds got the ball back the Spruce 37-yard line. Francis sent a 37-yard pass to sophomore wide receiver Riley Quatrano for the first touchdown of the game with 1:26 left in the first half. The conversion failed, but nonetheless, Lisbon was on the scoreboard.

The Phoenix responded on the kickoff. Kayle Stewart caught the ball and headed for the end zone for a 91-yard return at 1:26. The kick failed and the teams remained tied at 6 heading into halftime.
