Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Message Board

Posted: December 7th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

As a junior, Adam LaBrie of Yarmouth was a good forward on a team that fell short of its goal. This season LaBrie was the Clippers’ best player, more than doubled his goal production, and Yarmouth won its first Class B boys’ soccer championship since 2010. “Adam was the No. 1 reason why we won the title but he never acted like it,” Coach Mike Hagerty said. Based on his improvement and team accomplishment, and emphasized by his three-goal game against Greely in the Western B final, LaBrie is the Maine Sunday Telegram boys’ soccer Player of the Year...

Press Herald Girls' Soccer Player of the Year: Cassie Symonds, Windham

Sport: Soccer ( Girls)  Message Board

Posted: December 7th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

The senior center midfielder helped the Eagles to the Class A state title and repeated as Telegram Player of the Year. On a team of stars, Cassie Symonds was the sun for Windham High’s repeat Class A champion girls’ soccer team. The action orbited around Symonds, the Eagles’ Holy Cross-bound center midfielder. Her ability to dominate both on the ground and in the air – despite being a tick under 5-foot-4 – provided Windham (17-0-1) with a near-constant flow of attack. For that reason, Symonds edges her prolific goal-scoring teammate Jenna Soucy and Thornton Academy’s dangerous senior striker Tori Daigle as the 2014 Maine Sunday Telegram girls’ soccer Player of the Year...

Posted: December 7th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

By Michael Hoffer. YARMOUTH—Yarmouth's girls' basketball team might just arrive a year ahead of schedule. The Clippers, a rare varsity squad devoid of a single senior, demonstrated in Saturday night's regular season opener that it's either unaware or unconcerned about its youth and inexperience. Hosting Kennebunk at Jack Stroud Memorial Gymnasium, Yarmouth never trailed, rode the early hot hand of freshman Jessica Kirk and the pinpoint passing and opportunistic...

Even though his team trailed just 44-38 with 15:31 left in the game, Walsh said, “It was never a close game despite what the score may have said at certain points. “We were thoroughly beaten from tap to buzzer,” added Walsh. “Our approach is unacceptable … the way we compete, the mentality that we have and the toughness we play with. It’s not good enough. It has to change and it will.” Forward Zarko Valjarevic, Maine’s only senior, agreed. “It was definitely an unacceptable performance…

Oak Hill too deep for St. Dom's

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: December 6th, 2014 by Tom Nolette

"We don't skip a beat," Oak Hill coach Charlie Castonguay said. "That's one thing we found out this summer. When we'd put kids in, sometimes we'd come back against teams. I was surprised. I think our depth will pay huge dividends throughout the year." The Raiders used that depth against a St. Dom's club that doesn't have depth or experience. Oak Hill broke the game open early and never looked back in a 60-28 win over the Saints. "I picked Oak Hill and Dirigo to be first and second in the league this year," St. Dom's coach Jon Berry said...
