Football: Mountain Valley rolls past Poland

RUMFORD — There is a lot of pride surrounding the Mountain Valley football team and those traits came to the forefront in a Class B Campbell Conference tilt at Chet Bulger Field on Friday night.

Tyler Mason caught two touchdown passes and ran 51 yards for another score in the first half as the Falcons recorded a 41-0 triumph against winless Poland before a huge Homecoming crowd.

Mountain Valley (4-0) clicked on all cylinders offensively and crossed the goal line four times in the first half. Quarterback Chris Day threw scoring strikes of 57 and 44 yards to Mason down the right sideline. The Falcons were anxious to redeem themselves after rallying by Wells 27-20 last week.

"As I junior, I just wanted to come in tonight and help my team," Mason said. "They say a team like Poland isn't quite there yet, but we had to come out and hit hard. It really helps running behind our offensive line because they block so well."

Mason, with more than 230 all-purpose yards, returned a punt 60 yards to the Poland 18-yard line in the third quarter. On the first play, Matt Duka scored his second touchdown by breaking several tackles. Duka (111 yards, 12 rushes) used second and third efforts to score on a 23-yard scoring run in the first quarter.

Football: Cougars capitalize on Tigers' miscues

JAY — Once Jay High School got the fifth quarter of last week's loss at Oak Hill out of the way Friday night, the Tigers were fine.

Problem is, when you spot Western Class C favorite Dirigo a three-touchdown lead before some of the home fans are finished washing down their tailgate grub, you might as well cash in the final three periods.

To Jay's credit, the Tigers didn't. But three lost fumbles in the opening stanza widened their eyes like a bad sequel of last Saturday's turnover-troubled matinee. Holding on for dear life and playing hard until every whistle for the duration wasn't enough to change the bottom line of a 34-12 Campbell Conference victory for the undefeated Cougars.

"I'll tell you, when we fumbled the kickoff, it was like, 'Oh, jeez, here we go,' Who knows what would have happened if we hadn't had that first quarter?" said Jay coach Mark Bonnevie, whose team committed six turnovers in last week's loss.

Jay's first miscue didn't lead directly to Dirigo points, but the Cougars ultimately took advantage of the resulting change in field position.

Football: Leavitt levels Nokomis

Sport: Football  Posted: September 26th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Randy Whitehouse, Staff Writer
TURNER — Leavitt had its first touchdown called back due to a block in the back penalty Friday night.

That was about as close as anybody came to stopping the Hornets in the first half.

Leavitt scored on all seven of its first half possessions, and a couple of times it didn't have the ball, to roll to a 75-0 drubbing of Nokomis.

Eric Theiss threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Hornets racked up 499 yards of total offense despite starting to mix in their subs in the second quarter and going with their second and third-stringers for the entire second half.

Lucas Witham, Jon Letourneau and Tyson Nichols scored two touchdowns apiece. The Leavitt defense, meanwhile, limited Nokomis to 59 total yards and one first down

Football: Rams tough on EL

Sport: Football  Posted: September 26th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Justin Pelletier, Assistant Sports Editor, Online
 AUBURN — Friday night's effort from Edward Little's depleted football squad may have been its best all season.

Thanks to the two-headed monster in Cony's backfield known as Luke Dunklee and Chris Robinson, that effort still wasn't enough to lift the Eddies to their first win of the season.

Dunklee ran for 172 yards, caught a pass for 40 yards and threw for 67 more and Robinson chipped in with 105 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns to lead the visiting Rams to a 33-16 win in front of a sparse crowd at Walton Field.

"We did a good job scouting. We were able to put in some new plays this week and those worked well," Dunklee said. "(The ability to rotate backs) helps us keep defenses guessing, and it's working well for us right now."

Football: Andies whip Ramblers

Sport: Football  Posted: September 26th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Dave St. Hilaire

 WINTHROP — Livermore Falls' running game was in high gear Friday night. The Andies opened the throttle early and didn't let up to the tune of 480 yards rushing as they ran away from the Winthrop Ramblers in a 58-14 dismantling of their Campbell Conference foe.

Nothing the Ramblers tried could stop the Andies' running attack. Fourteen of the Andies' 50 runs went for 10 or more yards. They averaged 9.6 yards per carry.

Halfback Jeff Ryder took a pitch from quarterback Shawn Whiting and raced 72 yards down the right sideline on the first offensive play of the game for the Andies. He would finish with 171 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. Teammate Chandler White turned in an even bigger night, racking up 204 yards rushing to go along with 60 yards receiving. He also scored twice.

"I'm seeing some good holes and I'm just reading my blocks," said White. "It's been a lot of hard work, but it's coming together now."

Football: Dragons singe frustrated Blue Devils

Sport: Football  Posted: September 26th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Kevin Mills, staff editor
BRUNSWICK — As poorly as the Lewiston football team played Friday night, the Blue Devils still had a chance to win.That proved to be the team's consolation after a difficult night.

Lewiston rallied in the second half and got within a point. The Blue Devils had two opportunities to take the lead in the final quarter but fell short in a 19-18 loss to Brunswick.

"I knew they were going to be a good football team," said Lewiston coach Bill County. "I thought they would probably hit us harder than we'd been hit by any other football team. I think we survived it pretty well, but it's too bad to lose on a PAT."

Lewiston was plagued by turnovers, poor special teams play and shoddy tackling on defense. Trailing 13-12 at the half, County gave his team a rousing halftime speech, and Lewiston responded with a stronger second half.

Football: Crusaders roll to 4th victory

Sport: Football  Posted: September 26th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Andrew Neff
BDN Staff 

BANGOR, Maine — The John Bapst Crusaders continued doing Friday night what they’ve been doing through the first month of the 2009 football season.

The offensive line continued to control the line of scrimmage, the defense made most positive yardage hard to come by and the big-play players made big plays.

As a result, the Crusaders are still unbeaten with a 28-8 victory over Mattanawcook Academy of Lincoln at Cameron Stadium.

The air might have been chilly and crisp, but only the crisp part applied to the 4-0 Crusaders’ players as — aside from one drive in which they committed three straight penalties and four total — they heated up early and never cooled down.

BDN Staff

OAKLAND, Maine — The Bangor football team blitzed its first three opponents with an offensive barrage good for an average of 45 points per game.

But coach Mark Hackett’s club needed a resilient defense to remain undefeated Friday night to outlast gritty Messalonskee 13-12 in a Class A matchup at Veterans Memorial Field.

“Everyone’s been saying since we started this season that we have a weak defense,” said Bangor senior tackle Andrew Logan, who teamed with classmates Jacob Thompson and Joey Quinn up front to limit Messalonskee’s double-wing rushing attack to 128 yards on 46 carries. “We just had to come out and show tonight that we have a strong defense, and that the front is the heart of the team.”

With 17:01 left in the first half, Katrina Daigle scored what eventually became the game winning goal off an assist from Marianne Ferguson for a 1-0 Bapst lead. The Crusaders added one more goal with 26 seconds remaining in the half when Ferguson picked up a pass from Marissa Rublee 40 yards out and dribbled the ball the rest of the way sliding it past the Lynx goalkeeper to put Bapst on top 2-0

It was a beautiful day for golf at the Rockland Golf Club Thursday afternoon as the Rockland golf team played host to new Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B member Camden Hills. The Windjammers are back in the KVAC Class B after a couple of years in KVAC Class A for golf.

While the Tigers may not have welcomed back their cross town rivals with open arms, they did play host and played some excellent golf to come away with a 5 1/2 – 3 1/2 upset win over Camden Hills. Roland got the win with the low four stroke total of 187-190. In match play Camden Hills won 3 1/2 matches while Rockland won 2 1/2 matches. Medalist for the match was Joey Nelson with a none hole 43
