Posted: June 11th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Old Town High School star Eric Hoogterp is headed to the University of Southern Maine this fall with an eye toward playing on the Huskies’ basketball team.

 

It’s a more than reasonable goal given his resume in the sport — the 6-foot-2 guard was a Mr. Basketball semifinalist and Bangor Daily News All-Maine honoree last winter after leading the Coyotes to an 18-2 record and a berth in the Eastern Maine Class B semifinals.

NORTH BERWICK, Maine — With two outs in the bottom of the ninth and a runner on second, Kailey Coleman reached first on an infield single, and Kasey Poligni made it from second to home to clinch the walk-off win for the Noble High School softball team, 2-1, over McAuley on Tuesday. Noble’s ninth straight win came in the first round of the Western Maine Class A tournament.

 

McAuley second baseman Maddy Beaulieu looked back Poligni at second before throwing to first, but was too late to get Coleman. Noble coach Rick Melanson decided to take the chance of sending Poligni home.

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Bryant Lausberg put his team through a bunch of simulated defensive situations toward the end of Tuesday’s practice.

 

But his pre-playoff message could be distilled into two words.

 

“Energy and focus,” he said. “Playoffs in any sport, everything needs to be brought up a notch. We don’t want to be overly energetic but we want a lot of intensity, a lot of enthusiasm, and everything between the ears needs to be taken up a notch.”

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 10th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Nowhere in high school sports is the single-elimination format scarier for top-ranked teams and their coaches than baseball, the game in which a dancing curveball or a perilous hop can stymie the best on the wrong day.

 

Easy to understand, then, why one potential quarterfinal matchup in Class C West quickens everyone’s pulse rate ever-so-slightly.

Dragons sidestep Devils

BRUNSWICK — With the way Brunswick ace John Parker and Lewiston senior righty Kyle Ullrich were pitching in Tuesday’s Eastern A preliminary baseball game, the biggest fear was if the game was going to get completed before the threatening weather arrived.

 

But a perfectly-executed slap bunt by Dragons No. 8 hitter Pearson Cost loaded the bases in the seventh, and one hitter later, Cam Berry shook off a rough game by driving Ullrich’s 110th pitch to deep left field for a walk-off sacrifice fly and a 2-1 Brunswick win.

Nobody who has watched St. Dom’s baseball go to 11 Class C West championship games under coach Bob Blackman had any doubt what the Saints were going to do. Madison even knew, and it was destined to work, anyway.

Wood, defense lead Waterville baseball past Gardiner

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 10th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WATERVILLE — Waterville Senior High School assistant baseball coach Chris Farrar is either a hardball prophet or a lucky guesser. In the top of the sixth inning, Farrar watched Gardiner put runners on second and third base with one out, turned to head coach Don Sawyer and said the Purple Panthers needed a double play.

 

Two pitches later, Farrar got his wish. Logan Peacock hit a sharp line drive right at Waterville third baseman Dan Pooler, who was playing approximately 5 feet off the bag. Pooler made the catch, took one step to his right, dove, and then tagged Devon Maschino to complete the double play, which ended the inning and killed the Tigers’ best chance for a big inning.
