Waterville hockey hoping history repeats itself

Purple Panthers coach sees similarities between this season's team and the 2009 state championship squad.

 

WATERVILLE — Dennis Martin has been a coach with the Waterville Senior High School hockey team for the past 21 years, the previous 12 of which have been as the head coach.

 

One team has continued to come to mind for Martin as a comparison to this season’s squad, and that should have a lot of Purple Panther fans excited.

 

“I do compare them a lot to my ’09 team,” Martin said. “They stack right up there but you have to remember, it’s the end result that matters. These guys are a talented bunch.”

HALLOWELL — Riley Boivin does not remember the hit that cost him two games earlier this season.

 

“I just remember seeing the video,” Boivin, a senior on the Cony/Monmouth/Hall-Dale hockey team, said of the hit in a Dec. 26 game against Gardiner. “It was kind of a bummer.”

 

Teammate Connor Perry also didn’t remember the hit he took in the final game of the regular season against Brunswick at Bowdoin College during his sophomore year.

LISBON — At the start of the fourth quarter Monday, it didn’t sound like Oak Hill was playing its first road game in Lisbon’s new gym. The Raiders reeled off a 9-0 run, erasing a dominant third frame for the Greyhounds, and the visiting fans were through the roof. Bu...

Hickey hits late 3 as Winthrop escapes Boothbay

WINTHROP — Boothbay’s diamond-and-one defensive approach on Monday night forced Winthrop’s Jacob Hickey into a game that was something less than a precious gem.

 

Blanketed by two hard-nosed Seahawk seniors — Nick Gorey, then Matt Burnham off the bench — Hickey went nearly 26 minutes of game time without a field goal after a typically explosive first quarter. With the Ramblers on the brink of being swept in the season series and leaving a first-round bye in the Class C South boys’ basketball playoffs to chance, though, there was no doubt who would be taking the big shot, guarded or otherwise.

PORTLAND—This is just getting ridiculous.

 

Just when you think all is lost for the Waynflete boys’ basketball team, senior Milo Belleau steps out of a Hollywood script and saves the day.

 

Monday evening, some 17 days after his bank shot 3 from an impossible angle stunned powerhouse Falmouth at the horn, Milo’s Magic reappeared and as a result, the Flyers’ continue to surge toward the finish line.

ORONO, Maine — University of Maine cross country and track athlete Jesse Orach of Gorham and women’s basketball player Sigi Koizar of Vienna, Austria, received the 2016 “M” Club Dean Smith Awards during an academic awards ceremony Monday night at the Wells Conference Center.

ORONO, Maine — Senior left wing Dameron Rodrigue’s third goal of the game, coming with 7:59 left in the third period, rallied the Winslow Black Raiders to a hard-fought 6-4 Class B North high school hockey victory over the determine Old Town-Orono Black Bears at Alfond Arena on Monday night.

 

Freshman center Tommy Tibbetts also had a hat trick for Winslow, which extended its unbeaten streak to 11 games (9-0-2) by overcoming a 3-1 deficit. Winslow is now 10-2-2.

Junior winger gives UMaine hockey a boost when shorthanded

ORONO, Maine — Shorthanded goals are hard to come by, and when a shorthanded goal is scored, it can create a huge momentum shift.

 

There are only two players in Division I who have scored as many shorthanded goals as University of Maine junior right winger Blaine Byron over the last two seasons, including this one.

 

Byron has five shorthanded goals during that span. He shared the national lead with three players a year ago, and he has two this season, including a critical one in the 5-4 win over the University of Massachusetts on Saturday night.

The Hot Corner: 'Butt in the gym,' shots in the air, needed to save game

In the viral video era, once you’ve had your fill of cute cats, or dads getting hit with a Wiffle ball line drive in the private parts, there’s nothing more wonderful than a good, old-fashioned coaching rant.

 

Most of the hall of fame tantrums live on either in our mind or in beer commercials. Football coaches in particular, from Jim Mora to Dennis Green to Herm Edwards to Mike Gundy, turned it into a 1990s and 2000s art form.

Westbrook's Aube shoots for the right balance

Alisha Aube's scoring ability creates added pressures and expectations.

 

WESTBROOK — It’s a constant dilemma for Westbrook High junior Alisha Aube: to shoot or not to shoot?

 

A sturdy 6-foot guard with good ball-handling skills and extended 3-point range, Aube has been scoring at a pace that has put her among the SMAA leaders since her freshman season.

 

She’s also grown accustomed to the high expectations that come with being her team’s primary scoring threat.

With high school basketball prelims tipping off next week, it will be interesting to see what teams do the best preparation as both the underdogs and favorites will be trying to advance to tourneys in Bangor, Augusta and Portland.

 

There are several ways teams can win a tournament.

 

One is by scouting teams and watching video. Both are important in game planning.
