Cross country notebook: Lobley making strides for Poland

Sport:   Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes, Staff Writer
Turns out the only thing that can throw Kendra Lobley off course so far this cross country season is, well, being thrown off course.

The Poland Regional High School junior has won three of her first four races against Western Maine Conference competition. Lobley's lone shortfall was Sept. 11, when she finished third to Emily Attwood and Kelsey Barton in a three-mile race on the Capers' home trail.

Attwood was Class B runner-up in both the region and state last fall and is among the favorites again this year. Barton bettered Lobley for runner-up laurels by a mere two seconds, and that difference was easily explained.

"She took a wrong turn or two," said Poland coach Sean Galipeau-Eldridge. "I think she could have beaten that girl for second."

Boys' soccer: Tigers outlast Hornets in double OT

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Randy Whitehouse, Staff Writer
TURNER — Although Gardiner entered Wednesday with two wins and Leavitt without a victory, it was clear as their KVAC boys' soccer game unfolded that little separated the two teams.

Ultimately, though, what likely helped the Tigers emerge victorious Wednesday was the fact that they already had two wins and the Hornets were still desperate for their first.

Chris Kimball's took an indirect kick from Nick Berlew and headed it over Leavitt goalie Cooper Legee 32 seconds into the second overtime to give Gardiner a 1-0 win over Leavitt.

"I went to overload the left side and I saw the ball coming up and I sought after it," Kimball said. "I saw the goalie coming out so I tried to put it over him and I got under it."

"Nick is a striker who usually hits a decent ball and Kimball took care of his chance," Gardiner coach Casey Johnson said. "He had three chances earlier but he finished well."

Field Hockey: Hill's 2 goals help Ramblers to win

Sport: Field Hockey  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette


WINTHROP -- Especially in the first half, Winthrop flashed the form Wednesday afternoon that has carried it to an unblemished record. With only a few exceptions, Hall-Dale did not flash the form that has the Bulldogs on track for a playoff spot.

Thanks to its brilliant start, Winthrop scored less than two minutes into the game and had three goals by halftime. The Ramblers took it from there, coasting to a 3-0 victory to run their record to 8-0-0.

"The first half, we came out intense, put a lot of pressure on them on offense," Winthrop coach Sharon Coulton said. "We were very good at cutting off their passes. We had some people who were just moving phenomenally. Sarah Warner, she seemed to be everywhere."

Boys Soccer: Black Bears hand Raiders 1st loss

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette


WALES -- The strategy was simple: Be the first to the ball on defense and apply as much pressure as possible on offense. The idea was to force a mistake, take advantage and walk away with a win.

Wednesday afternoon, the Maranacook boys soccer team got just one good chance and the Black Bears were all over it, taking a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Oak Hill in a Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B game.

Maranacook improved to 6-1-1, while Oak Hill dipped to 6-1-0. It is the only time the two teams will meet during the regular season.

"Oak Hill is a really good team," Maranacook coach Don Beckwith said. "They remind me of the old Georges Valley (perennial Class C powerhouse) teams. They play good hard soccer."

Beckwith and Oak Hill coach Joe Fletcher could be heard consistently imploring their respective players to be the "first to the ball." Maranacook's Jon Findlay gave that extra effort at the right moment and the resulting play produced the game-winning goal.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Schools find way to curb soaring costs of games under lights

Sport: Football  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette


It's 20 minutes before the 7 p.m. kickoff against visiting Waterville, and Hoch Field isn't fully illuminated.

No, there isn't a malfunction, and, yes, Gardiner Area High School paid its electric bill.

So why is the field only mostly -- and not fully -- lit?

"There is a little bit of savings by not turning them all on at once," Gardiner athletic director Jeff Turnbull said. "It's not a lot, but enough."

As budgets continue to shrink and the economy meanders toward recovery, schools are constantly looking for ways to save money.

One way is through electricity usage, particularly on athletic fields.

H.S. FIELD HOCKEY NOTEBOOK: Big game on tap for Gardiner

Sport: Field Hockey  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette


It looked like an interesting matchup in preseason, and there's still anticipation for today's Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B field hockey game between Nokomis and visiting Gardiner. The Tigers are 8-0, Nokomis is 7-1, and they're 1-2 in the Eastern B Heal points.

"I definitely am expecting a big game," Gardiner coach Moe McNally said. "I haven't seen them yet, but I think it might be a test of our defense, which is our strength, against their offense, which seems to be their strength."

"It's one of those games that you like to have on your schedule," Nokomis coach Katie Thompson added, "because you know it's going to be a challenge, and it's going to be close."

Boys Soccer: Resilient Mount View beats Medomak to stay unbeaten

Sport: Soccer ( Boys)  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Ernie Clark
BDN Staff

THORNDIKE, Maine — A 2-2 tie at Maranacook of Readfield earlier this week confirmed Mount View High School’s status among the top boys soccer teams in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B ranks.

But the Mustangs’ 6-1 victory over Medomak Valley of Waldoboro on Wednesday helped erase a bad memory.

“We lost to Medomak three times last year, and at home it was 4-0,” said Mount View senior Justin Roberts-Pierel. “They also beat us with 53 seconds left in our playoff game, so we were excited to beat them.”

Girls Soccer: Myerowitz, McGuire spark John Bapst win

Sport: Soccer ( Girls)  Posted: September 24th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Ryan McLaughlin
BDN Staff

DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — His offense stricken with injuries, John Bapst girls soccer coach Gary Sinclair knows that scoring balance up front is going to be pivotal for the next couple weeks.

The Crusaders provided plenty of it Wednesday afternoon, as Jordan Myerowitz and Casey McGuire scored two goals apiece with Jenny Kane adding another as the Crusaders from Bangor blanked Foxcroft Academy 5-0.

Bapst, which is missing offensive threats Kirsty Moriarty (knee) and Sierra Pierce (ankle), dominated the midfield from start to finish and had a decisive edge in ball possession.

Myerowitz, a senior forward who primarily plays in the midfield or back line, got the scoring started 3:08 into the match, as she emerged unmarked in the center of the penalty area and one-touched a pass from Kristyn Gerow.

Field Hockey: Five straight for Falcons

Freeport field hockey rolls to 4-0 win

FREEPORT — For the first 15 minutes of Monday’s Western Maine Conference field hockey contest between Freeport and Traip, the host Falcons had trouble just getting out of their defensive zone, much less putting offensive pressure on the Rangers’ net.

Freeport coach Sara Dimick called a timeout, not to yell, but to remind her team “to focus and play your game.”

Her words of wisdom seemed to inspire the Falcons, who came out and immediately applied pressure en route to a 4-0 victory.

The win, Freeport’s fifth straight, gives the Falcons a 5-1 mark with a road trip to Poland set for Wednesday, while Traip drops to 1-5.

Boys' Soccer: Flyers muster a comeback

Waynflete overcomes a 2-1 deficit to beat North Yarmouth Academy 4-2 and remain unbeaten.

By EARL SWINSON, Special to the Press Herald

YARMOUTH — Tucker Geoffroy had two goals as Waynflete rallied past North Yarmouth Academy 4-2 Tuesday in a Western Maine Conference boys' soccer game.

The Flyers (4-0-1) trailed 2-1 late in the first half before Daniel Mitchell, who had a goal and two assists, brought the ball over midfield and sent a perfect through pass toward the net.

Geoffroy got behind the defense and beat goalie Dylan Seely to the ball, scoring the tying goal with 2:57 left in the half.

"Playing two games against good teams in less than 24 hours is tough, and it took us a half to relax and get our game going," said Waynflete Coach Brandon Salway, whose team beat Gray-New Gloucester 2-0 on Monday.

Boys Soccer: Save saves the day as Scarborough keeps on winning

A penalty-kick save stops Westbrook and extends a two-year soccer win streak to 24.

By RACHEL LENZI, Staff Writer

SCARBOROUGH — A pair of goals was more than enough Tuesday night for the Scarborough boys' soccer team in a 2-0 victory against Westbrook.

But it was a diving save late in the game that finally put the Red Storm at ease.

With less than 14 minutes left, Westbrook was awarded a penalty kick when the Red Storm were called for a handball inside the box.

Brad Stiles lined up to take the kick. Scarborough goalie Tennessee Peters dove to his right and the ball bounced off his hands and out of bounds behind the goal.

"That was huge," said Austin Downing, who had a goal for the Red Storm. "If they score that, then they would have had a lot more enthusiasm, but that was just huge. It kept our team on top."

If Stiles had scored, the momentum would have shifted.

Westbrook Coach Tim Gillis could only speculate what may have happened had Peters not stopped the shot, one of his seven saves.

Wildcats keep on winning
By Jay pinsonnault

Six games, six victories, five shutouts.

The York High School field hockey team continued its undefeated season with a 2-0 victory at Lake Region on Monday in a Western Maine Class B contest.

"We've had some good games, but today's game was a little rough," York head coach Barb Marois said. "It wasn't our best effort, but sometimes that happens. Thankfully, we were still able to come away with a win. Hopefully, we can learn and grow from today's game."

Cari Posternak gave the Wildcats a 1-0 lead with 10 minutes left in the first half, with Kellee Cribby and Ali Graziano assisting.

Hannah Keating gave York a two-goal on a penalty stroke with 11:30 left in regulation.

Freshman goalie Amanda Kasbohm had four saves, posting her fifth shutout of the season.
