After hard foul, Old Town basketball player may sit out tourney semifinal

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 16th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

OLD TOWN, Maine — Old Town High School senior Mitchell Cole’s availability for Wednesday night’s Eastern Maine Class B boys basketball semifinal is uncertain after he absorbed a hard foul late during the Coyotes’ quarterfinal victory over Caribou last Friday night at the Cross Insurance Center. Cole’s mother, Terri Stewart-Cole, reported via Facebook that the 6-foot-4-inch forward “fell to the floor, was knocked out, split his chin open [and] had six stitches, ending his senior year tourney time more than likely after the incident,” when her son was grabbed from behind while driving toward the basket for a fast-break layup during the fourth quarter. Cole attended but did not participate in the team’s practice Monday, Old Town coach Brian McDormand said. ..

AUGUSTA, Maine — After falling behind No. 8 Brewer by six points early in the second quarter Monday, Edward Little shifted into gear, ratcheted up its efficiency at both ends of the Augusta Civic Center court, and cruised to a 54-38 Class A East quarterfinal victory. “Part of you says, ‘Ooh, this is not fun.’ But I never really felt like we were in trouble,” Edward Little coach Mike Adams said. “I knew that we’d settle down offensively. Defensively we were solid.” Ian Mileikis...

The Hot Corner: And now, for the airing of grievances

By KALLE OAKES.. will never be King of the World. Heck, when you choose this profession, with the requisite hours and pay, you’re lucky to maintain a figurehead’s grip over your home, your health, and your bank account. If I’m ever named benevolent dictator of Maine high school basketball, however, you’d better believe some things are going to change around here. The first weekend of that event in Augusta, Bangor and Portland is the highlight of every local sports calendar year for me. That excitement and anticipation will never change. All the traditional, permanent ingredients of it outweigh whatever the moving parts do, or don’t. Anyone who is paying attention and being honest recognizes that those moving parts are showing wear-and-tear right now. That would be the first piece of my platform in this hypothetical administration, because when you ignore cracks in the foundation or leaks in the roof, they only get bigger and...

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: February 16th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The sophomore hopes to clear 15 feet and help his team win the Class A state title. When Scarborough High sophomore Sam Rusak headed to Cambridge, Massachusetts, in late January for the Greater Boston Track Club Invitational, he wasn’t sure he’d even compete. He’s glad he changed his mind. Rusak won the pole vault with a jump of 14 feet, 9 inches in an event that featured collegians and older vaulters. Rusak is the top seed among Class A pole vaulters heading into the indoor track and field state championships Monday. The 6-foot-1 Rusak will try to help the Scarborough boys win their fifth consecutive team title at the Class A indoor track and field championship at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham...

Spruce Mountain rally falls short against Lake Region

Posted: February 15th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND — After battling from behind for most of Saturday's Western B quarterfinal game, Spruce Mountain finally had the opportunity to take the lead. And the shot the Phoenix had in the final seconds was just what coach Scott Bessey would have ordered. "That's the kid, Tyler Kachnovich, one game he had five 3s in a quarter," Bessey said. "If you were going to give me one shot with Tyler Kachnovich wide open and down two with 15 seconds left, if you told me we were going to have that opportunity, I would have taken it in a second. He'll make nine out of 10 of those." With seven seconds remaining the senior forward's try at the lead didn't fall. Lake Region got the ball and sealed the victory with free throws for a 41-37 win at the Portland Expo. "I thought for sure it was going down," Bessey said...
