EHS girls bounce back from Presque Isle loss with win over Bapst

first_img MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth girls’ basketball team bounced back from a heartbreaking loss Saturday against Presque Isle with a win Monday against John Bapst.At Eastern Maine Community College, Ellsworth (9-6) got 17 points from Trinity Montigny in a 37-32 victory over Bapst. The Eagles trailed 14-13 at halftime but outscored the home team 15-8 in the third quarter to pull away and avenge last year’s season-ending loss to the Crusaders (8-6) in the Northern Maine preliminary round.The win pushed Ellsworth from 11th place to 10th place in the Class B North standings. It also gave the tourney-bound Eagles the signature win they team had been seeking after narrow losses to top contenders throughout the year.“We needed that,” Ellsworth head coach Andy Pooler said.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThe game followed Ellsworth’s double-overtime loss Saturday afternoon against Presque Isle. The Eagles and Wildcats were virtually inseparable for four quarters Saturday with both teams hitting numerous clutch shots before the visitors ultimately pulled out a 65-62 win.Ellsworth led top-ranked Presque Isle (13-3) 7-5 through one quarter of play after holding the Wildcats without a point for a stretch of five minutes. Presque Isle fought back to take a 21-16 lead midway through the second quarter, but the Eagles scored the final eight points of the half to take a three-point lead into the break.Ellsworth and Presque Isle exchanged leads numerous times in the second half, but with 13 seconds remaining, the Eagles led 50-47 and appeared to be on the verge of a major victory. Yet the Wildcats’ Maggie Castonguay then hit a 3-pointer that head coach Jeff Hudson called “the shot of her life” with 3.9 seconds left to tie the game and force overtime.Both teams kept up their solid play in overtime before Ellsworth had a chance to win the game on the final shot with the scored tied at 56. Sierra Andrews’ jumper as time expired appeared to be on its way through the hoop but rimmed out at the last possible moment to force another overtime.“It looked really good,” Pooler said of Andrews’ shot. “Sierra plays for 32 minutes and never gives up a possession, and she had great wherewithal to get herself in position and put up that shot. From my angle, it was halfway down that cylinder, and I don’t know how it popped back up.”Presque Isle led by as many as five points in the second overtime period, but Ellsworth pushed the visitors all the way to the wire. Hudson, whose team was fresh off a 46-44 win over Mount Desert Island just 18 hours earlier, knew the game could just as easily have gone the other way.“Ellsworth played awesome,” Hudson said. “They made big shots, and we had to find ways to respond every time. It was a great game.”Ellsworth’s showdown with Presque Isle came a day after the Eagles defeated Caribou 39-28. Montigny scored 18 points for Ellsworth, which outscored the Vikings 24-13 in the second half after the two teams went to the locker room tied at 15.Ellsworth will host Foxcroft (5-10) for Senior Night on Wednesday, Jan. 29. The Eagles will be on the road against second-place Hermon (14-1) on Friday, Jan. 31, before closing out the regular season on the road against MDI next Wednesday, Feb. 5. All three games are set to begin at 7 p.m.With Hermon and MDI having both defeated the Eagles at Ellsworth High School already this year, Pooler knows beating either or both teams will be extremely challenging. As he told his players after the loss to Presque Isle, though, this Ellsworth squad has already shown it can go toe to toe against formidable opposition.“I told the girls in the locker room, ‘Hey, just stay the course,’” Pooler said. “We’re hanging around, and we know we’re right there and have a chance to maybe knock somebody off.” Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio Latest Postscenter_img Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Syracuse plagued by penalties, lack of possession in 5-2 loss to No. 1 Wisconsin

first_img Published on October 7, 2017 at 7:31 pm Contact Adam: adhillma@syr.edu | @_adamhillman Halfway through the second period, Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan became visibly distraught.His team, trailing by a goal to top-ranked Wisconsin, had already committed four penalties in the first period and, while SU was able to get one of the two allowed goals back, the team simply didn’t possess the puck enough to create another chance.This was a usual theme for Flanagan, as a lack of control in the offensive zone along with penalties frustrated both Flanagan and his players. On Saturday afternoon at Tennity Ice Pavilion, Syracuse (0-3-1) committed eight penalties and, though it only resulted in two goals, the Orange needed to remain on the defensive against Wisconsin (6-0), which beat the Orange, 5-2. Shots streamed toward Miller and any possible Orange momentum flagged.While the Badgers commanded the course of action, Flanagan blamed the penalties on the refs; not mistakes by the Orange.“There was a bad call right off the bat and the flow just wasn’t there,” he said. “Wisconsin carried the flow. Just a real poor job of officiating. For us, it’s tough. We held our own. The officiating (contributed to the more physicality). … They didn’t do a very good job managing the game.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the previous two games of SU’s series with UW, the Orange surrendered 38 shots to the Badgers. Yet, as SU was able to tally the team’s first two goals of the season on , the Badgers offense ignited in the third period.Abbey Miller, the Orange’s senior goalkeeper, felt that the scoreboard did not justify how the team was playing.“I felt like we played pretty well,” she said. “They are a really good team, but bounces and calls really weren’t going our way. It was kind of a goofy game.”Freshman Victoria Klimek’s tripping penalty forced the Orange shorthanded 36 seconds into action. Even though they escaped with no goal allowed, the call set the tone to the Orange’s physical play. SU went without a skater four times in the first period, with two resulting in goals.The aggression was a specific game plan, said junior defender Allie Munroe.“Playing against the number one team in the country,” she said, “we knew that if we wanted to compete with them we were going to have to get in their faces and win the battles. We knew that we needed to step it up a little bit.”The Badgers’ power-play opportunities allowed them to control the puck. They were able to advance into the offensive zone and fire shots at Miller consistently throughout most of the game.Even while SU was left on the defensive for the majority of the action, the forwards displayed poise in front of the net, converting 24 shots into the first two goals of the season. After sophomore Kelli Rowswell scored a minute into the second period on a power play, freshman Emma Polaski netted her first career goal. For her, though SU lost, she’ll remember the game.But excluding a ten-minute stretch in the second period that included Polaski’s goal, Syracuse struggled to find quality chances on a consistent basis.“It is something that we just have to really harp upon,” Flanagan said. “When you get an opportunity, don’t just pass the puck aimlessly to someone.“Take the time to get your eyes up and get real good shots on net.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
