Class C North football: MCI stuns Winslow in semifinals
The Huskies dig deep into their bag of tricks to help knock off Black Raiders.

...Ahead of Winslow by 15 points at halftime, MCI used a perfectly executed fake punt to douse Winslow’s momentum, then ground out a pair of long scoring drives to pull out a 43-42 victory in a C North semifinal Saturday at Poulin Field. No. 6 MCI (6-4) — in its first season back in Class C — will play at top-seed Mt. Desert Island (9-1) at 7 Saturday night in the regional final.

It took a couple perfectly executed trick plays, a few big defensive stops, and even a little luck, but the Huskies are moving on.

“Coach (Bertrand) talks about heart and never giving up. We knew we were down and needed to come back and score,” said MCI senior Pedro Matos, who scored three touchdowns and gained 116 yards of offense.

No. 2 Winslow (8-2) dropped its first home playoff game since 2008, when it fell to Morse.

Congratulations to MCI, but we are left wondering what if.... what if Fredette and Gagnon had been healthy and not forced to play injured in the second half. Both Fredette and Gagnon showed a lot of guts playing hurt and nearly brought their team back against the defending Class D state champs.
