    Greely star’s injury feared serious; Nason hurt knee Monday

    Greely High soccer star Jacob Nason will have an MRI on his injured knee this Friday, according to boys soccer coach Mike Andreasen. “They preliminarily think it’s either an ACL tear or a muscle tear.” Andreasen said via e-mail Wednesday morning. Both potential injuries are significant. An ACL tear typically requires surgery. Andreasen said a muscle tear might also require surgery. Nason was injured in Monday’s 1-0 loss to Falmouth with […]

    Freeport field hockey surges in Heal standings

    Freeport High opened the Western Class B season with a 7-0 loss to York. “That was a little deflating,” said Coach Marcia Wood. That was followed by a 2-1 overtime loss to Kennebunk. Since then, however, the Falcons have been soaring. Entering October, Freeport was 7-3 and ranked second in Western Class B behind unbeaten favorite York. “We’re playing well, we’re hustling and we’re feeling that success you should feel,” […]

    No time for Patriots to dwell on Monday’s loss

    The one bad thing about playing on Monday night – other than maybe getting blown out like the Patriots were – is that you have less time to prepare for your next opponent. And in this case, the Patriots have a very difficult match-up coming up on Sunday night when the Cincinnati Bengals come to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The Bengals are 3-0 and playing at a very high level […]

    Maine’s Beckford finds paydirt after getting a veteran’s tutelage

    Maine running back Nigel Beckford was named rookie of the week in the Colonial Athletic Association after scoring his first two career touchdowns in Saturday’s stirring win at Towson. But Coach Jack Cosgrove said Monday that it was the return of veteran tailback Nigel Jones that allowed Beckford to succeed. Jones missed the Sept. 20 loss at Boston College with a concussion. In the junior’s absence, Beckford faltered, gaining only […]

    A little pre-game reading for Monday Night’s game in Kansas City

    Remember when the Patriots lost in Miami on Opening Weekend and everyone else in the AFC East won and New England was in last place? Remember how football fans outside of New England cheered? Well, if the Patriots win in Kansas City Monday night, the Patriots will be alone in first atop the AFC East again. Even if they lose, the Patriots will find themselves in a three-way tie for […]

    Three key races, and a fourth; Rusney; ex-Dogs honored

    When Major League Baseball tweaked its playoff format two years ago, it placed an emphasis on winning the division, while also adding another wild card team. That has prompted extra interest in two division races and one wild card battle, which comes down to today. AL Central: Detroit (89-72) and Kansas City (88-73) NL Central: St. Louis (89-72) vs. Pittsburgh (88-73) AL Wild card: Oakland (87-74) and Seattle (86-75) So […]

    Marshwood girls soccer: Quality process leading to top results

    Marshwood High’s girls’ soccer team was not included in the Portland Press Herald’s Top 10 Teams to watch preseason rankings. Through the first half of the season the Hawks went 6-0-1, opened our eyes, and climbed to the No. 1 ranking in Western A entering tonight’s showdown at Thornton Academy. Big wins against Gorham (5-1) and Scarborough (5-1) have helped pile up Heal Points and verify that Marshwood deserves to be on […]

    Interesting return for Noble’s Sorrell

    Few female athletes at Noble High School made a bigger impact than Sloane Sorrell. The 6-foot-1 center and 2009 graduate led the Knights to the Western Class A girls basketball title game as a junior, was all-state as a senior, and then went on to start every game in a standout four-year career at Southern New Hampshire University. So it’s no surprise Sorrell was welcomed back to the Berwick school, where she works as […]

    Betts too good to trade; Red Sox won’t “enable” Middlebrooks

    A good night for Boston Red Sox rookies Wednesday at Fenway Park, with Mookie Betts continuing to lead off. Meanwhile, another one-time sensation continues to be unavailable. Boston started seven rookies in its 11-3 win over the Rays. That’s the most rookies to start a game for the Red Sox in 43 years. The seven: Pitcher Anthony Ranaudo: 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K (no home […]
