Josh Horne pulled away, winning the Class A title in a time of 17 minutes, 5.2 seconds. Caleb Lord nipped Aaron Willingham down the stretch (17:07.1-17:07.8) to finish second.
WINSLOW — The Winslow football team took care of business Saturday afternoon, securing a 6-0 record with a 60-6 win over Hermon at Gerry Poulin Field. Business, however, is about to pick up.
High fives from my nieces and nephew. A pat on the back from my dad and shouts of encouragement from my mom. My brother and sister shooting pictures and videos with their cellphones. A thank you from a complete stranger.
READFIELD -- Kodey Solmitz said there is no doubt he will be kicking himself for a missed opportunity. Braden Maillet isn't quite sure how he broke the play up.
WATERVILLE -- The Waterville football team continued its run through Eastern Maine Class C with a 53-0 rout of Hermon High School on Saturday at Drummond Field. It was clear, as soon as the game ended, the Purple Panthers are ready for their first test.
You remember the feeling: You’re bent at the waist, struggling to catch your breath, afraid that you might throw up. Your legs struggle to hold your weight. Your hands rest on your knees, tugging your shorts or your knee pads. Sweat drips into your eyes, then into a puddle between your feet on the grass.
The first time, it was simply about finishing. The second time was about finishing a little faster. The third was about setting a goal and smashing it to bits. The fourth time, well, that didn’t go quite as planned.
AUGUSTA — Westbrook starting pitcher Zack Bean pitched a complete game shutout and beat out a potential double play to allow the winning run to score in the sixth inning as the Blue Blazes beat Messalonskee 2-0 in the Class A state championship game at Morton Field on Saturday.
The parking lot at the Hannaford in Gardiner, near the Kennebec River Rail Trail head, filled with people shortly before 6 p.m., Monday evening. Runners. Walkers. Adults. Children. Some wearing race T-shirts. Some wearing blue and gold (the colors of the Boston Marathon). Some wearing Boston Red Sox shirts, some wearing Celtics shirts. Some wearing duct tape on the back of their shirts with the words Boston Strong written on it.
From my spot at Kenmore Square, a few strides before the “1 Mile to Go” marker, I saw so many emotions. There was joy, pain, excitement, regret, more pain and relief.
