I saw these two teams play in Cape earlier this season. It was a close game early and then Cape ran away with it. MCI is clearly playing well right now but I don’t think any team they have faced could expose them through the air and on the ground. Cape can do both very well. And don’t forget capes D has given up less than 100 points all season. Weare will get a lot of touches per usual and they will look to get the passing game going also. I think Cape wins their first Gold Ball 40-14.

With 2 loses on the season (1 to class D Wells) Cape can certainly be beaten. The Capers will need to show confidence not cockiness. Stick to the game plan and perhaps win their first football State Championship!

I hope you’re not taking away anything from Cape for losing to wells... wells is 11-0 and the defending Class C champ. Cape lost to them 14-7 on a late score.

MS football notes: Midseason gut-check key to MCI playoff run
Huskies overcome slow start with to reach Class C state game.

...The Huskies had some soul-searching to do. Were they the team that had played in three consecutive state championship games, winning the Class D state title the previous season, or were they going to settle for being another team that struggled when it moved up a class against tougher competition?

“We just decided we were going to either go one direction or the other. We knew we were better than we were playing. There was a lot of doubt, and a little bit of fracturing that was going on within the team. We just decided we were going to come together and believe and trust each other,” MCI coach Tom Bertrand said.

MCI is the luckiest team, and their luck is going to run out. Beat Winslow with 3 of their top players out due to injury and loose another during the game and 2 forced to play when back up quarterback broke his wrist who was also their free safety.. Then go to MDI and the top running back in the league breaks his ankle beginning of the second quarter. Not only that they have had luck on plays a lineman laying on his back has a tipped pass land on his chest for a two point conversion. Cape runs away with it 32 to 15.

Teams play against the hand that is given.....MCI Coaching Staff came in with very good game plans vs Winslow & MDI and the "TEAM" executed that plan, injuries happen on both sides of the ball....I give the edge to Cape for the State Game as they can pass & run, doubt you'll see MCI stacking 9 at the line and if they do Capes passing games needs to hit....But don't count out this Husky Team as they have the BIG MO going and the Coaching Staff isn't afraid to roll the dice anywhere on the field as shown at MDI.....This should be an interesting game Friday night...Cape 27-24

Cape football one win from gold

Cape Elizabeth’s 15-year quest for a state championship is now 48 minutes from realization.

Last Friday night, the Capers handled visiting Gardiner, 35-13, in the Class C South Final and this coming Friday, Cape Elizabeth will travel to the University of Maine in Orono to meet Maine Central Institute with a title on the line.

Last fall, undefeated Cape Elizabeth hosted the Class C South Final, but lost to a Wells team it had defeated in the regular season final. The Warriors went on to win the championship and the Capers were left to lament what-if.

This time around, Cape Elizabeth isn’t prepared to settle for anything short of a Gold Ball.

The second-seeded Capers hosted No. 4 Gardiner in the Class C South final last Friday and behind the bruising running of Ryan Weare and an opportunistic defense, rolled to a 35-13 victory and the program’s second-ever regional championship.
