Weekend Blitz: 172nd Battle of the Bridge is County’s swan song

0

Edward Little (1-6) at Lewiston (0-7)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Lewiston has three consecutive wins in the series, leads 91-68-12 all-time, and hasn’t gone winless since 1979. It will be the final game of Bill County’s 23-year head coaching career, the past 15 with the Devils.

Vikings won their previous visit to the Queen City two years ago. There’s a good chance they will make this trip two consecutive Fridays.

Cape Elizabeth (5-2) at Mtn. Valley (2-5)

Saturday, 7 p.m.

Hard to believe, but the Capers have never won at Chet Bulger Field. Certainly looks like their best chance to date.

Gray-NG (0-7) at Poland (2-5)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Knights win: at Wells next week. Knights lose: at Spruce-Leavitt loser next week. Hey, choose your poison, but the Battle of Shaker Hill is one the home team wants to get under any circumstances.

Spruce Mountain (7-0) at Leavitt (6-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Records and sites are flipflopped, but the same things are on the line: Campbell Conference regular-season title, and No. 1 seed in Class C West playoffs. Hornets swept series, 25-6 and 48-21, last time around.

Winthrop/Monmouth (2-4) at Maranacook (3-3)

Friday, 7 p.m.

There’s a chance that the winner will host a Class D West quarterfinal, which looked like a remote possibility back in mid-September. Ramblers have won back-to-back games. Thanks to Traip forfeit, Black Bears won two in four days. 

Dirigo (5-1) at Traip (0-6)

Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

After letting one slip away in the final two minutes, Cougars still ould take No. 1 Class D West seed with a win in Kittery and an Oak Hill victory over Lisbon.

Oak Hill (6-1) at Lisbon (6-0)

Saturday, 1 p.m.

For all the people who misunderstood Crabtree standings and thought Raiders being only team to play eight games was an advantage, even a win here likely not enough for No. 1 seed. Would be for the Greyhounds, though.

Skowhegan (3-4) at Mt. Blue (4-3)

Saturday, 7 p.m.

Rivals played back-to-back, high-octane donnybrooks a year ago. Looks like Indians would need a win and help to make the six-team PTC playoff cut this time.
