    Craig has given Leavitt football a boost

    A pleasant surprise for Leavitt has been the passing of junior quarterback Levi Craig, who is closing in on 2,000 yards in the air. He has thrown for 27 touchdowns. The Hornets have been more of a running team the past couple of seasons, but with Craig and a group of talented receivers, the offense is not afraid to air it out.

    Western Maine Class C football  recently recognized a change it had made back in August in the number of teams making the playoffs, but went unnoticed in the  league minutes.  It was thought to be six teams until a few of the league teams pointed out that the league decided to expand to eight teams.

    Maine hockey team falls short again, but at least shows some spark

    OK, so the Maine men’s hockey team made a couple of critical mistakes Friday against a team that punishes you for doing so. It resulted in a 3-0 loss to defending national champion Union in the Black Bears’ home opener. Maine is 0-3 and has scored only three goals on the season. Coach Red Gendron could be heard leaving the postgame news conference reassuring someone that “the sun’s going to […]

    Something to prove? Nah, just glad with the win.

    Chris Jones would have had every reason to be flying high Thursday night. He blocked the 58-yard field goal attempt by Nick Folk on the game’s final play to preserve the Patriots 27-25 win over the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium. A year ago, Jones had a say in another Patriots-Jets game, though it wasn’t quite as satisfying. On Oct. 20, 2013, Jones was called for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike […]

    Rex Ryan: talk of Patriots’/Brady’s demise premature

    Rex Ryan was his typical self during a conference call with the New England media on Wednesday, which meant some great sound bites for everyone. The 1-5 Jets play the 4-2 Patriots Thursday night. When asked about the criticism Brady received a couple of weeks ago, Ryan said, “Yeah, that was hysterical, I thought. You know what I mean? It’s like, ‘Yeah, really? OK.’ I mean, come on.” Ryan said […]
