Leavitt rallies past Spruce Mountain in second half

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

JAY — Playing forward for a potent Leavitt Area High School offense, it's not often Sadie Royer finds herself all alone in the circle, and certainly not when she's in control of the ball. A string move from Kierstin Leclerc at the top of the arc drew all of Spruce Mountain's defenders from the goalmouth, though, and Leclerc relayed an Emma Martineau drive to Royer on the right side...

Golf: Ramblers one shot closer to state title

Sport: Golf  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

One stroke. That's all it took to derail Winthrop High School's quest at completing a perfect season. A missed putt, a bad chip, a missed fairway. All those moments magnified after the Ramblers saw the Class C state golf championship slip through their fingers by a single stroke. Instead, the title went to St. Dominic Academy, taking the state title for the fourth straight...

LISBON: Greyhounds back(s) in business

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

This year’s Greyhounds are big, burly and abashedly blue-collar, and nobody’s shedding any tears about the philosophical change. “It’s going great. I’ve always enjoyed blocking and being the first guy to hit somebody. Deliver the blows so our running backs don’t take very many,” Lisbon fullback Joe Philbrick said. “We’ve always been a physical class. We like bringing the hits to the other team.” Of course, being undefeated helps. Lisbon (4-0) has breezed through the...

Sport: Portland Pirates  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

"There's a renewed excitement and we all want to rewrite the script from last year," Portland general manager and head coach Ray Edwards said. "The guys have pride; the coaches have pride. We want to get back at it and prove we're a good hockey team. This is a team that can do good things, and we want people to be proud of us." Even the team's die-hard fans had a tough...

Monmouth defense holds out Hall-Dale

Sport: Soccer ( Girls)  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

FARMINGDALE — Playing defense for Monmouth may seem like a cushy job given that the Mustangs score goals in bunches.But goalkeeper Mikayla Cameron, fullback Caroline Bonenfant and company know it isn’t as easy as it looks, especially against a resilient team like Hall-Dale. Cameron made some key stops early and late, while Haley Fletcher and Maddie Bumann provided the offense in a 3-2 win over the Bulldogs...

Unbeaten Mustangs no longer concerned about offense

Sport: Soccer ( Girls)  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

MONMOUTH — In hindsight, it seems a bit ludicrous that Monmouth once wondered whether it would have enough firepower this fall. Any team that graduates a scoring stalwart such as Kylie Kemp is bound to experience a bit of anxiety over who will pick up the slack. Coach Gary Trafton thought there was potential with Haley Fletcher coming off a strong freshman season and some other promising young talent ready to emerge. But tweaking the lineup with players...

Preview: Plenty at stake for Gardiner, Mt. Blue

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Tigers will host Mt. Blue Friday in a battle between 2-3 teams that will likely have major playoff implications when the regular season ends in a few weeks. Gardiner has gotten itself into the playoff mix behind a strong defense that is allowing only 13 points per game over the past three weeks. Mt. Blue, meanwhile, has shown at times this season that it can be dangerous on...

Preview: It's Thornton-Cheverus, so you know the football game will be good

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

“We’ve had some great games and I don’t expect anything differently this time,” said Thornton Coach Kevin Kezal. “Cheverus is going to play fundamental, good football. Joe Fitzpatrick is one of the best backs in the state. Zordan Holman is a great tight end.” The Golden Trojans have been able to get a number of players into the offense this season. Last week against Massabesic they rolled up 613 yards, 520 on the ground. The key to opening chances for other players was

In state golf, Scarborough hopes a first team title is in the cards

Sport: Golf  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The Red Storm will look to cap a perfect season Saturday after going 10-0 in the SMAA and winning the league’s North title. After failing to qualify for the state Class A team golf championship last year, Scarborough is back with its best chance to win it all. The Red Storm take a 10-0 regular-season record and the SMAA North title into Saturday’s state team tourney at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. Scarborough, one of the six SMAA teams in the event, never has won a golf team state title...

Noah Nelson is the anchor of the Yachtsmen's offense

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The quarterback with news co-anchor parents has developed into a solid passer. Nelson said it didn’t bother him that he only attempted three passes. “We wanted to take some time off the clock by running the ball,” he said. “I’ll do whatever it takes for us to win.” That attitude is probably a reason his teammates elected him a co-captain the past two years, even though Nelson didn’t get to showcase his strong arm against the Blue Blazes. “Noah has gone...

UMaine hockey seeks a keeper in goal

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

Alaska’s motto is “north to the future.” It’s a fitting place for the Maine hockey team to begin a season whose direction will be shaped largely by one crucial question: Who will mind the net? The Black Bears will drop the puck at midnight Eastern time against Alaska-Anchorage on Friday, then follow with an 8 p.m. Saturday game against Alaska-Fairbanks. For three goaltenders, it will be the beginning of an audition to replace the graduated Martin Ouellette, who played...

FALMOUTH—In the matter of 64 minutes Thursday evening, the whole complexion of Class A volleyball changed. The defending state champion Falmouth Yachtsmen, somewhat forgotten after a pair of early season losses, reminded everyone that they're still a team capable of doing some serious postseason damage. And as a result, the Greely Rangers are undefeated no more...

'These guys are ready to play': UMaine football is relying heavily on promising first-, second-year players

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

ORONO, Maine — It is no secret that the University of Maine football team has been doing some rebuilding this season. The Black Bears, who went 10-3 while winning the Colonial Athletic Association championship and earning a spot in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs last year, sustained heavy graduation losses. Coach Jack Cosgrove and his staff said goodbye to 20 seniors, many of whom played important roles on the squad...

University of Maine hockey team eager to cure road woes in opener at Alaska

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: October 10th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The University of Maine men’s hockey team made several positive strides a year ago under first-year coach Red Gendron. One of the exceptions was its road record. The Black Bears won just one of the team’s 16 road games, going a dismal 1-12-3, including a pair of season-opening losses at St. Lawrence 3-1 and 5-2. The Black Bears have traveled through four time zones to...
