In an 0-6 season, a bright spot for Madison has been the play of sophomore quarterback Chase Malloy, who is starting in place of injured Cody Soucier.
On Saturday, Malloy completed 11 of 16 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns at Waterville. The previous week, he threw two touchdown passes against Winslow.
"He's filled in very well for Saucier, who's been out with an injury. Very smart. Makes great reads. He's probably the smartest quarterback I've had here," Madison coach Scott Franzose said. "He probably knows coverages better than I do. He makes good, quick decisions with his feet. We think he has a bright future here."
Madison could end the season on a strong note. The Bulldogs have two home games remaining, against Camden Hills (1-5) and Hermon (0-6).

Winslow took many of its starters out of its 60-6 win over Hermon on Saturday late in the second quarter. The Black Raiders move on to face 4-2 Foxcroft and 6-0 Waterville in their final regular-season games. With the lack of reps in Saturday's game, the Black Raiders know practice this week is tremendously important.
"The week of practice will be very, very important," Winslow coach Mike Siviski said after the win over Hermon, "just because we've hardly played our starters a complete game yet."
The Black Raiders are 6-0 and have outscored their opponents, 260-63. Other than a 28-12 win over Belfast and a 21-0 win over Nokomis, which was scoreless at the half, Winslow's starters have played sparingly in the second half of games this season. That certainly won't be the case against Foxcroft and Waterville.
"(The Hermon) game is not the game we want to have before we play these big teams," said Dylan Hapworth, who rushed a 52-yard touchdown on Winslow's second play from scrimmage against Hermon. "(Practice) is really important. We need to get in better shape."
In Foxcroft, Winslow faces a team that has lost two straight. It's also a rematch of last season's Class C state final, which Foxcroft won, 22-20. Last fall, Winslow won the Western C title and Foxcroft the Eastern C title. This fall, after realignment, the schools are in the same region.
"We definitely feel like we have some unfinished business against them," Winslow quarterback Bobby Chenard said.

Around the state: In Friday's 61-0 win over Mountain Valley, Leavitt extended its shutout streak to 18 quarters . The Hornets (6-0), have outscored their opponents 237-0 over their last four games... Cheverus' 52-7 win over Thornton on Saturday was a statement to the rest of Class A that the Stags are the team to beat again this season. After winning back-to-back state titles in 2010 and 2011, Cheverus lost the West A regional final to Thornton last season. On Saturday, the Stags led the Trojans 42-7 at the half... You think the last couple weeks of your teams' schedule are hard? Look at Bucksport. The Golden Bucks (6-0) close the regular season with back-to-back games against currently unbeaten opponents, MCI and Mattanawcook.
