Oct 31, 2018 - Eagles Lose Heartbreaker in Finals, 1-0 to Lewiston
Oct 31, 2018 - Eagles Lose Heartbreaker in Finals, 1-0 to Lewiston
Lewiston scored the game's only goal early in the second half on a penalty kick by Joel Musese. It was a defensive battle throughout the game, but both team had their chances right down to the final seconds when Travis Nadeau was awarded a direct kick from 20 yards. Travis lined up his shot, bent it around the defensive wall, but the Blue Devils' keeper Dido Lumu smothered the shot as the final seconds ticked away.
It was a great season for the Eagles, for their 14 seniors, and for Coach Rioux.

Oct 27, 2018 - Girls 4th, Boys 7th, Lisandro 1st at State Championship
Lisandro Berry-Gaviria ran away from the field winning the Class A State Championship for the second year. Lisandro ran another PR beating his time from last week's meet (at the same venue) by 15 seconds. His time of 15:35.40 established a new course record. Lisandro qualified for the New England Championship to be held on Nov 10 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Both the Girls and Boys runners performed admirably. 13 of the 14 Eagle entrants ran PRs. Let's start with the Girls
The Girls finished 4th out of 15 teams and punched their ticket to compete as a team at the New Englands. All seven girls ran PRs. Camila Ciembroniewicz was the top Eagle finisher with a 15th place finish. For the first time, Camila dipped below the 20-minute barrier with a time of 19:44.29 Camila bested her time from last week's Regional meet by a whopping 53 seconds. Karli Leighton was next with a 26th place finish with a time just north of 20 minutes (20:09.39) Karli only chopped 49 seconds of her previous best. Sara York continued the trend of PRs with a 48th place finish and recording a time under 21 minutes for the first time. She beat her previous best time by 20 seconds. Katie Lynch was right behind her in 51st place and a PR by 9 seconds. Fay O'Donnell and Caitlin Chambers ran hand-in-hand (figuratively) to finish in the 60-61 positions respectively. Fay dropped 50+ seconds off her previous best and Caitlin trimmed an additional 7 seconds off her time. Finally, Cassandra Kane finished 107th, but ran a PR by 93 seconds. Well done, ladies.
The Boys finished 7th overall in a very competitive field. Behind Lisandro, Nate Cohen and Grady Satterfield both ran sub-17 minute races. Nate finished 25th in 16:58.90 and a PR by 23 seconds while Grady was right behind him in 26th place in 16:59.32 and a PR by 8 seconds. Lucas Bergeron ran a fine race with a PR by 12 seconds and a fast time of 17:16.53 to finish 38th. Andrew Chamberlain continued his fine season with another sub-18 time. Andrew finished in 63rd place with a time of 17:53.47 and a PR by 4 seconds. Tyler Bernier ran a near PR and finished 94th with a time of 18:42.10. Nate Chase ran his best race of the year beating his previous best time by 90 seconds to finish in 19:11.36 to finish in 106th place.
Oct 19, 2018 - Morse Prevails 38-16
It was a battle between the two rivals. Both teams rely on the running game and with good reason. Morse features running back Austin Baltazar, who has rushed for more than 1500 yards this season. The Eagles have their own definition of success in the running of Hunter Lohr (Mr Outside), Riley Morin (Mr Inside), and Cody Holman (Mr Everywhere)! Morse's Baltazar ran for more than 300 yards and three TDs. Hunter Lohr ended up with close to 200 yards.
Brady Mitchell teed it up for the opening kickoff and boomed a kick deep into Morse territory. Lucass Rousseau made a jarring tackle on the play that separated the ball from the Morse returner, but Morse was lucky enough to recover the fumble. On the first play from scrimmage, the Eagles were penalized for an encroachment penalty and then had 15 more yards tacked on for bad behavior. That placed the ball on their own 49-yard line. Morse's Austin Baltazar took the hand-off on the next play and went 49 yards for the score. The PAT was good an Morse led 7-0 just 39 seconds into the game.
After a nice return by Cody Holman gave the Eagles good field position at their own 35, Hunter Lohr picked up a first down with a 22 yard gain. However, the Eagles fumbled on the next play. Morse took over at midfield and drove to the Eagles 13-yard line. The Eagles defense stiffened and Morse settled for a field by Asa Hodgdon, a soccer player who has quite the leg on him.
The situation worsened for the Eagles on the next possession. After Hunter Lohr rushed for a first down, Cody Holman had another first down run negated by a penalty. A QB sack left the ball on the 9 yard line with a 4th and 30. The Eagles lined up in punt formation and Morse went for the block on and succeeded. Lukas Osterhout recovered the ball in the end zone for an easy 6 points. Morse led 17-0 at the end of the first quarter.
The Eagles got on the board when they strung together a 10-play drive that culminated with Hunter Lohr running it in from the 11-yard line. Noah Blessington made the two point conversion, cutting the Morse lead to 17-8.
After the Eagles Dan Pratt and Kyle Secone inflicted a couple of sacks setting up a third and long, Baltazar came up with a backbreaker when he raced 54 yards for a TD with 1:37 left in the half. Things started to happen fast in the closing minutes. Cody Holman made another nice return the Eagles 42. Blessington completed a 11-yard pass to Hunter Lohr for a first down. On the next play Hunter galloped 54 yards for the TD. The two-point conversion was good and the Eagles cut the Morse lead to 24-16 with 57 seconds left in the half and they were very much in the game. But Morse marched 79 yards on the legs of Baltazar to score with just 3 seconds left to take a 31-16 lead into the locker room at the half.
The action settled down in the second half. After the teams exchanged punts, Baltazar continued to pound away on the ground for Morse setting up teammate Mason Savory for a 18-yard TD run with 1:51 left in the third quarter and a 38-16 lead. The fourth quarter was scoreless.
Daniel Jackson and Kyle Secone were were outstanding defensively throughout the game for the Eagles.
The Eagles were hosting their first home playoff game since 2012 on the basis of a 9-5 record. Messalonskee entered the game with an 8-6 record, but their losses came against Skowhegan (twice), Cony (twice, Mt Blue, and MCI. With the exception of MCI, which we did not play, these are all teams that the Eagles also lost to. Seing how Messalonskee beat us 3-1 during the regular season, it would seem they would be ranked higher. Messalonskee, who, along with most everyone else, must have been a tad miffed that the Eagles were seeded ahead of them, took out their displeasure against the home field Eagles with a 6-2 victory.
Messalonskee is a skilled team and played a solid game at both ends of the field. However, the final score was not indicative of the differential in the skills both teams displayed. The MTA Eagles started strong and had some opportunities, but the ball didn't bounce their way early. Messalonskee built a 3-0 lead, before Wyley Fitzpatrick, with 3:46 left in the half. Thirty seconds later, an Eagles defensive breakdown was an invitation to disaster - and disaster RSVPed in the affirmative in the form of a Messalonskee goal by Olivia Saucier. That goal took the wind out from beneath the Eagles wings.
Messalonskee added to their lead when the appropriately named Autumn Littlefield scored. This time the Eagles turned the table and came right back with a goal by Hannah Huston, assisted by Wyley Fitzpatrick and Brea Holtet. Messalonskee's Francesca Caccamo closed out the scoring.
The loss concluded a great season for the Eagles. And we are already saying 'Wait till next year'.
Oct 16, 2018 - Eagles Battle to Tie with Brunswick
It took two overtime periods to settle the score, but the Eagles left with a 1-1 tie with the Dragons. It was the best game the Eagles have played this year and it came at the right time with the playoffs starting next week. Alexa Gurney, assisted by Eliza Libby, scored to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead at the half. Brunswick's Emma Banks tied the game in the second half.
Oct 6, 2018 - Eagles = State Champs
The Eagles won their first ever Golf State Championship with three of their golfers shooting in the 70's. Caleb Manuel led the Eagles with a 1 under par 71 to to tie Camden Hills Cole Anderson and Thornton Academy's Andrew Burnham. The Eagles' Will Kavanaugh played some of his best golf of the year and finished with a 75. Cade Charron shot a 79 and Ben Hickson shot an 87. As Caleb Manuel summarized "Three rounds in the 70's is hard to beat."
