Dec 3, 2016 - Eagles Win Westlake Tournament
The Eagles got off to a fast start to the season with a dominating performance at the 35th annual Westlake Tournament. The Eagles outscored runner-up Nokomis 154 to 129. 16 Schools throughout the State competed. The Eagles showed strength up and down the weight classes. In the 14 weight classes, the Eagles placed six athletes in the Finals and three more in the Consolation Finals.
An influx of four freshman wrestlers dominated in the lighter weight classes. Ben Laurence (106 lb), Josiah Langworthy (120 lb), and Cody Holman (132 lb) all reached the Finals and ended up placing second. Caden Kowalski won the Consolation final by pinning his opponent in just over a minute to finish 3rd in the 113 lb class.
Senior Jabbar Belin, wrestling at the 126 lb class, recorded a major decision over his opponent, outscoring him 10-2 to capture one of the two first place finishes of the day for the Eagles. Moving up the food chain, so to speak, Dylan Schenk captured first place in the 220 lb weight class in an exciting, down to the wire, 3-2 decision. In the (very) Big Boy division, Logan Conkling finished fourth when he was pinned in the Consolations. Defending State Champion Robert Hetherman lost a rare match in the Finals to Winslow's Ryan Fredette who pinned Robert in 4:30. Somehow I think Robert has the rematch date circled on his calendar. In other Consolation bouts, Matt Ducatt took it to the mat before losing a 13-9 decision. Matt wound up fourth in the very competitive 160 lb weight class.
Nov 30, 2016 - Eagles Skate Past 26ers
by A J Kavanaugh
AUBURN - The Mt. Ararat/Lisbon/Morse Eagles earned a preseason victory Wednesday afternoon at Norway Savings Bank Arena, defeating the Poland/GNG/Leavitt/Oak Hill 26ers 4-1. The Eagles got goals from Orion Sargent, Tyler LaCascio and Sam Alexander all unassisted, while Ryley Austin scored on the power play assisted by Tyler Halls and Noah Austin. Mt. Ararat/Lisbon/Morse senior Steven Schuman scored the presumed 2nd goal of the game, on a beautiful top shelf shot. However the officials missed the puck hitting the inside of of the net and waived it off...
Eagles goaltenders Parker Lacey and Cade Charron split duties in net, combining for 20 saves on 21 shots. Now 1-0-1 in exhibition play, the team will wrap up their preseason with a game Monday at Hebron Academy against the Lumberjacks "B" team at 4:45pm, before opening up the regular season at Edward Little on December 10.
Nov 29, 2016 - Yarmouth Clips Eagles 8-1
The Eagles returned to the ice with a visit to Travis Roy Arena for a tilt against the Yarmouth /Falmouth team. Yarmouth was loaded with some skilled skaters who were both fast and shifty. Eagles netminder Lily Schenk was under constant pressure and ended the evening with 41 saves.
The Clippers started fast, surprised the Eagles defense, and capitalized on a couple of breakaways in the first five minutes. After Yarmouth's second goal, they immediately broke in with another breakaway and this time Lily Schenk came up with the big save. At the six minute mark, the Eagles got on the board. The puck was centered from the corner and Isabel Burch, who had planted herself in front of the net, banged it home to narrow the deficit to one goal, 2-1. But Yarmouth reloaded and continued their attack. With five minutes remaining Lily Schenk stopped another breakaway. Yarmouth displayed some good puck movement to score two additional goals to take a 4-1 lead at the end of the first period.
In the opening minutes of the second period, the Eagles had a good chance when Eola Saucier did some yeoman-like work in the corner an slid the puck to Kiely Hetherington. Kiely took a swipe at the puck, but the Yarmouth goaltender made the save. With an Eagle in the penalty box, the Eagles effectively killed off the penalty, but shortly thereafter, Yarmouth pounced on a loose puck in front of the net and blasted it home to make it 5-1. Just under the 8-minute mark, Kiely Hetherington rushed in with a partial breakaway. Kiely fought off her pursuer only to see her shot plucked out of the air by the Yarmouth goalie. Isabel Burch was right there to pick up the rebound and poked a shot but the Yarmouth goalie came up with another great save.
Yarmouth upped the score to 6-1 when they converted from the slot after applying some good pressure. The Eagles came right back when Isabel Burch set up Kiely Hetherington for a shot that was turned away. Isa Blessington picked up the rebound in front and directed it toward the goal, but the Yarmouth goalie again came up with the save. The action returned immediately to the Eagles defensive end where Schenk yet again came up with a big save. Isabel Burch created some excitement when she raced in from center ice, shook off her defender, and fired a hard shot, but again she was thwarted by the Yarmouth goalie. The Eagles killed off another penalty to close out the period with Yarmouth holding a 29-7 shot advantage.
The Eagles started to demonstrate some good puck control in the final period. They went on the power play and their best chance came on a blast from the point by Chloe Beattie. At the other end, Lily Schenk made a series of saves, but the Eagles were unable to clear. Yarmouth persisted and finally scored to make it 7-1.
The Eagles again mounted a sustained attack with Kiely Hetherington having another good scoring opportunity. But once again, Yarmouth broke out of their defensive end and converted on another breakaway to make it 8-1. In the closing seconds, in a play that epitomized the Eagles frustration, Isa Blessington broke in alone only to see her shot rejected.
Nick Oram, Class of 2011, was a Soccer, Track, and Lacrosse star. More importantly, he had the ability to connect with everyone he met through his outgoing personality and legendary sense of humour. He could bring a smile to your face no matter how dire you thought the situation was.
I don't pretend to say that I knew Nick well, but this much I can say with assurance. He was a competitor, and the tougher the competition, the harder, and more successfully, he would compete. And he was a personality. He brought out the best in everyone. He was a person you wanted to be with anywhere, all the time.
Collectively, our sympathies go to the family. We can't imagine the pain and sense of loss you are experiencing. We can only rely on our unique remembrances of the good times Nick provided each and everyone of us to help you through this difficult time.
As the Mt Ararat Nation, we are proud of our efforts in support of Nick. If you would like to make a contribution in Nick's memory, click here. There will be a memorial service at the Orion Theatre on December 3, 2016 at the Orion theater from 1:00 to 3:00.
