Not stuck in the middle

They call it the mid-season championship for a reason, as there’s a lot of running to be done. But it looks like a promising Mountain Valley Conference campaaign for the St. Dom’s girls’ cross country team.

Led by Ella Brown’s third-place finish, the Saints cruised to a 21-point win over Monmouth in Wednesday’s showcase at the University of the Maine at Augusta.

St. Dom’s also packed the seventh, eighth and ninth-place trio of Sydney Sirois, Megan D’Alessandro and Emily Carney. Izzy Gerencer rounded out the scoring.

Boothbay dominated the boys’ race, with Ben Allen of Winthrop achieving the individual victory.

Michaud stands tall


Depth and time weren’t Poland’s best friends in a 7-0 boys’ soccer loss to Poland on Thursday night. The game was scoreless for more than 30 minutes before the Class A Yachtsmen imposed their will and racked up goals in bunches.

Not to be lost in the shuffle was the performance of sweeper Derek Michaud, whose hustle led to three legitimate scoring chances for the Knights and made the Yachtsmen sweat out the first half.

“He’s dealing with a size disadvantage almost every game we play,” Poland coach Kris Wright, “but you won’t find a bigger heart on the field.”

Spotless so far

In addition to being ranked No. 1 in Class C West field hockey, Oak Hill (9-0) has the distinction of being one of only eight undefeated teams in the state.

The others: Lawrence, Scarborough and Gorham in Class A; York in Class B; and Yarmouth, Winslow and Dexter in Class C.
