Skowhegan football holds off Cony in lightning-delayed game
Indians use strong 3rd quarter to overpower Rams.

...Ironically, the game began with rays of sunshine poking through the clouds, and as it did in its opener against Falmouth, Cony started hot, taking its first drive deep into Skowhegan territory. The march ended in disappointment at the Indians 13-yard line with Skowhegan’s Cam Barnes intercepting an overthrown slant pass, but after a 3-and-out and poor punt gave the ball back to the Rams at the Skowhegan 11, quarterback Anthony Sousa plunged into the end zone from 2 yards out for a 6-0 lead with 4:28 left in the first quarter.

The lead lasted 13 seconds. Skowhegan’s Jon Bell took the kickoff, beat the coverage to the left side and was gone down the left sideline, pulling away for an 85-yard return to tie the game. The Indians held on the next series and drove 72 yards on their next possession, finishing a nine-play march with Hunter Washburn’s 2-yard touchdown run and a two-point conversion pass from Marcus Christopher to Sean Savage. Christopher worked the Indians out of a couple of jams to help keep the drive going, completing a 2nd-and-14 pass to Savage for 18 yards, and then finding Savage again for 20 yards on a 2nd-and-15. ... ayed-game/

Skowhegan offense hits its stride
QB Christopher, deep receiving group putting up eye-popping numbers.

SKOWHEGAN — When things started to work for the Skowhegan Area High School football team’s passing game, they really started to work right. Like, do a double take when reading the box score, double check your math right.

Two games in Weeks 3 and 4 marked the introduction of junior quarterback Marcus Christopher to the Pine Tree Conference. In back-to-back games against Messalonskee and Brunswick, Christopher threw for 922 yards and 12 touchdowns. On the season, Christopher has 1,199 yards and 14 touchdown passes, and is completing 65 percent of his throws. A trio of senior receivers, Cam Barnes, Sean Savage and Jon Bell, are helping make things easier for the first-year starting quarterback. The three have combined for 65 receptions, 930 yards, and 12 touchdowns. ... ts-stride/
