Vikings play hard to get with Eagles

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

"Our defense is our heart and soul, no question," Oxford Hills coach Mark Soehren said. "Defensively, we are going to come ready to play. Offensively, it is just one of those things, like how do we get points on the board. We had some descent drives, but we just didn't get into the end zone as much as we wanted." The is an excellent team. We played with an excellent team. They outscored us and out executed us in the end. They made some great plays when they needed to...

Leavitt wins on comeback, goal-line stand

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WELLS — Nobody who watched Friday’s first half at Warrior Memorial Field, during which yards were gobbled up in Arena Football-ish quantities, would have expected three sacks, two interceptions and a goal-line stand to settle the issue. That was the case, though, and all the above belonged to reigning Class C champion Leavitt, which rallied for a thrilling 26-19 victory over Wells. Billy Bedard knocked down Nate Booth’s pass to Reid Chase in the end zone with 21 seconds left to seal the win for the Hornets, who rallied from deficits of 13-0 and 19-6...

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

AUBURN — Deering cornerback Ben Williams didn't have the best of games last week and, as coach Matt Riddell said, he didn't take it well. Williams took his frustrations out on Edward Little on Friday, picking off Red Eddies quarterback Matt Verrill twice in the Rams' 32-12 victory at Walton Field. The win sends Deering (4-3) into the postseason, while Edward Little's hopes of grabbing a playoff spot were dashed...

Ramblers roll Seahawks on senior night

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

WINTHROP — For the seniors on the Winthrop/Monmouth football team Friday night was a shining moment in what has been a trying season. Winthrop/Monmouth held Boothbay to minus-33 yards of total offense in the second half as the Ramblers coasted to a 31-8 victory over the Seahawks on senior night in front of a large crowd at Maxwell Field. “It just shows that football is more to this community than just a game,” Winthrop/Monmouth senior Zack Phinney said. “I don’t know how many fans showed up and they probably played 40 or 50 years ago and they’re still coming back to watch kids like us play. It leaves me speechless.”...

Emotional Eagles buck Broncos after 'rough week'

OAKLAND — In theory, this is when Messalonskee should be feeling the effects of its small roster. Instead, the Eagles are playing their best football of the year over the last two weeks. Last week, it was an upset victory over previously unbeaten Brunswick. On Friday night, Messalonskee improved to 4-3 with a 55-21 win over Hampden at Veterans Field...

Lisbon edges Oak Hill to take MVC title

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

AUBURN — To some, conference championship games are just glorified exhibitions. It was much more than that for Oak Hill and Lisbon on Friday afternoon. Throughout the second half, players on both sidelines screamed and bounced up and down. When it was over, participants from both sides were in tears for different reasons. To get to the end took nearly two and a half hours. After two scoreless overtimes, Lisbon’s Bree Daigle punched one in on the fifth round of penalty corners, and the Greyhounds defeated Oak Hill, 2-1, in the Mountain Valley Conference championship game at St. Dominic Academy...

Every player for themselves at golf state titles

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The soaking rains of Thursday and Friday will soften the greens but not the pressure for golfers competing in Saturday’s Maine Principals’ Association individual golf state championships at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. At the 10 a.m. shotgun start, Class A and B boys will compete on the Tomahawk Course, while girls and Class C boys will tee off on the Arrowhead Course. Many of the golfers played on the same course for last Saturday’s team state championships. Boys qualified based on the total number of schools at each qualifying tournament (eg: 10 schools = 10 qualifiers, plus ties) and by shooting a score of 90 or lower. All girls who shot 110 or better at their qualifier advanced to states...

Rams come back with great catch

Posted: October 18th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA — The miracle Cony needed to win Friday night nearly required an act of blind faith. Trailing by six and facing fourth-and-28 with less than two minutes left, Mitchell Caron completed a 36-yard pass to Anthony Brunelle, the key play that kept Cony’s hopes alive in a 22-21 win over Greely. “I lost it in the lights at first,” Brunelle said. “But it came down, I saw it, got in front of the defender and got some extra yards out of it.” Four plays later, Tayler Carrier pounded it in from inside the 1-yard line with 12 seconds remaining to tie it...
