MCI shuts out Gardiner for ‘B’ North field hockey title...Senior Addi Williams scored two second-half goals as the Huskies pulled away from Gardiner 3-0 at the Weatherbee School Complex late Tuesday afternoon to capture the Class B North championship.The victory produced the Pittsfield school’s third consecutive regional title but first of the streak in Class B. MCI won the Class C state championship in 2015 and a second straight C North crown last fall before being reclassified by enrollment to Class B this year.“My sophomore year was the first year we made it here and everyone thought it was a mistake, that it was unheard of that a small school from Pittsfield could win states that year,” said Williams, MCI’s career goal-scoring leader with 90. “We wanted to make it evident that it wasn’t a mistake and we’ve been pushing through ever since.” ... key-title/

B North field hockey: MCI tips Gardiner...These teams played just two weeks ago with MCI downing the Tigers 1-0 in a fast-paced game on the turf at the University of Maine. The Hampden Academy turf was slower and bumpier, but the Huskies learned from their previous meeting.“We worked a lot on stopping their transition,” MCI midfielder Allison Hughes said. “Last time we played them, it really went from 25 (yard line) to 25. It was a really fast game, so this time we worked on stopping the transition.”The Huskies controlled most of the play in the first half, out-shooting the Tigers 7-1. Bickford scored on a hard shot just inside the circle after taking a pass from Hughes on a penalty corner. Gardiner senior Mikayla Bourassa saved a second goal with five minutes left when she reached high above her head on an aerial shot after goalie Avery Backus had been drawn out of position. ... -gardiner/
