Friday’s girls’ roundup: Foul shot lifts Marshwood past Kennebunk, 45-44

Girls’ basketball: Casey Perry gets a steal with 10 seconds left, then hit a 1 of 2 free throws and Marshwood improves to 3-0 with a one-point win.

Portland Press HeraldSTAFF REPORT

SOUTH BERWICK — Casey Perry caused a turnover with 10 seconds remaining, then connected on one of two fouls shots with six seconds remaining to give Marshwood a 45-44 girls’ basketball win over Kennebunk on Friday night.

The win lifted the Hawks to 3-0 while the Rams fell to 1-2.

Angelina Bisson led Marshwood with 19 points, four assists and three steals. Perry finished with three points and four steals.

Emily Archibald scored 26 points for Kennebunk.

Girls’ basketball: Marshwood rolls past Falmouth, 62-47

The Hawks open up a big lead in the first quarter and hand Falmouth its second loss in three nights


SOUTH BERWICK — Lexi McGee had been struggling offensively, her shots not falling. But when the Marshwood High junior guard opened Thursday night’s game by hitting a 3-pointer, it gave her the boost she needed.

McGee scored 17 points, hitting three 3-pointers, as the Hawks roared past Falmouth 62-47 in a Class A South basketball game.

Marshwood, which won its third consecutive game to improve to 8-2, opened a 13-point lead in the first quarter and stayed in control throughout. Falmouth, which won just two games a year ago, lost its second game in three nights to drop to 6-4.

“We were concerned because we knew they were playing well,” said Marshwood Coach Steve Freeman. “We came out the other night, against (Traip Academy), and played really well early and were hoping it would carry over. And it did.

“We came out and I couldn’t have been happier with how they played to start the game and, really, the entire first half.”

Marshwood, using its size and experience, forced the Yachtsmen into 14 first-half turnovers and controlled rebounds on both ends of the court. It was 39-19 at halftime.

After McGee’s opening 3-pointer, Anna Turgeon (14 points) scored inside for Falmouth. But the Hawks got the next 10 points, forcing five turnovers. Angelina Bisson hit two 3-pointers in that stretch, her second making it 13-2.

McGee said hitting her first shot “definitely gave us a boost. I guess it got us on track. I just said, ‘Relax and go out and have fun.’”

The Hawks had a balanced offense. Casey Perry and Kayla Goodwin each scored 13 points, while Bisson had eight.

That’s how the Hawks play when they’re at their best. Their two losses were to York (66-38) and Kennebunk (43-33), games in which they struggled to get anything going offensively.

But the combination of Perry and Goodwin inside and Marshwood’s outside shooters – the Hawks hit six 3-pointers – was too much for Falmouth.

“Being able to drive and also have our shooters out there kind of made them play me 1-on-1 instead of double-teaming,” said Perry, who missed most of last year because of a shoulder injury. “They had to cover Lexi, they had to cover Lina. All our shooters were 

The game served as a learning experience for a young Falmouth squad, which was missing starter Lauren Welch (illness). Falmouth did cut a 25-point deficit to 14 midway through the fourth.

“We just battle all game long, we don’t give up,” said Falmouth Coach Dawn Armandi. “If we want to compete with the best, we have to be able to play 32 minutes or more.

“And tonight, I felt like we were going to get run off the floor. So I kept them out there and made them play the whole game.”

For Marshwood, the eight wins is a little surprising, considering the Hawks graduated 14 players from last year’s regional semifinalist.

“To have this brand new team and be playing like this is awesome,” said Perry. “It means that we can keep getting better.”

Photography Class at Marshwood High School

Photography Class at Marshwood High School

It’s that time of year again. The first semester of Intro to Photography class is coming to a close. That means some of the amazing photos that students have taken throughout the year have been printed and will be on display for a pop-up gallery show during their final block day. As a part of their final exam, Photography students have selected and prepared work for an exhibit in Marshwood High School’s Main Lobby. Students are encouraged to engage an audience of their peers and MHS staff members in conversation about their photographs, the course, and the process. Teachers and administrators have been invited to be in the lobby during the 6th and 7th period (1:00 pm-2:00 pm ) blocks next week. The photos will be displayed in the hallway in the art wing after school on Thursday 1/16. Several of the pieces will also be displayed at this year’s District-Wide Art Show, in April. Stay tuned for the students’ photographs.

Seacoast Winter Classic: Portsmouth to face unbeaten York in semifinals

By Mike Zhe  Dec 26, 2019  

Holiday boys basketball returned to Portsmouth on Thursday, as the three-day, eight-team Seacoast Winter Classic debuted. All proceeds from the event will benefit the family of Maine Police Detective Ben Campbell, who was killed in the line of duty in April.

PORTSMOUTH — Rich Buzzell, the athletic director at Marshwood High School, remembers how the region looked forward to holiday-week basketball tournaments hosted by Portsmouth High School in the 1980s.

Back when he was a player at Traip Academy, he recalled the events that would bring in several local teams, plus teams from farther away — like Portland and St. John’s Prep — to play, in essence, “King of the Neighborhood.”

He particularly recalls the 1986 version, when his Traip team upset Portsmouth and reached the championship game.

“It was a pretty significant tournament,” said Buzzell. “I’m glad to see they’re doing it.”Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 11.37.37 AM Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 11.37.24 AM Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 11.36.59 AM Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 11.36.44 AM

Holiday boys basketball returned to Portsmouth on Thursday, as the three-day, eight-team Seacoast Winter Classic debuted. Organized by administrators from Portsmouth and Marshwood high schools, and Tommy MacDonald of the Maine FBI, all proceeds from the event will benefit the family of Maine Police Detective Ben Campbell, who was killed in the line of duty in April.

“We were talking about it earlier today,” said York coach Paul Marquis, whose team beat Mascenic Thursday. “We feel fortunate to be a part of it as a way of maybe giving back to the community a little bit, especially the law enforcement community. They do so much, whether supporting these kids when they were youngsters or just helping the communities they serve.”

Fans came to watch basketball, where teams from South Portland, Kennebunk, York and Portsmouth advanced to Friday afternoon’s semifinals. But there was a much more.


All players were issued green, long-sleeved “Seacoast Winter Classic” shirts that they wore during warm-ups. Twenty-five referees donated their time to work the 10 total games, many of them having a connection to law enforcement.

“Beyond basketball, it’s just a great event,” said Marshwood coach Bobby Pratt, whose team lost to South Portland in the opening game. “We’re appreciative that we were included in this.”

The gym filled up more as the afternoon turned into evening, inflatable Santas and snowmen just off the four corners of the court reminding us what a festive week this should be.Marshwood, off to a 3-3 start in Class A, led South Portland by five in the second quarter. But the Red Riots, the top team in Class AA at 6-0 and regarded as one of the best in Maine, grabbed the lead with an 11-0 run before halftime and never trailed again.

The Hawks tried to put a dent in the margin behind sophomore Aidan Sullivan (17 points), who scored the last seven points of the third quarter to make it 44-37. But behind quick guard Pamba Pamba (24 points), South Portland bumped its lead back to double-figures after surrendering the first basket of the fourth and went on to win, 59-49.

“They’re so tough,” said Pratt. “They can score from every position. Their pressure gave us some trouble (in the second quarter). … We turned the ball over two or three times — boom, boom, boom, and they go on their run.

“It was a good experience. That’s one of the top teams, I think in the state of Maine. They’re athletic, they can shoot, they can defend. It was good for our kids to see what the top looks like and what we need to do to get better.”

South Portland will play Kennebunk in Friday’s first semifinal (1 p.m.). Marshwood will play Sanford in a consolation game (10 a.m.).

Unbeaten York, on the short list of contenders in Maine Class A, opened its game against Division III Mascenic with 6-foot-4 Brady Cummins throwing down an alley-oop pass from Teagan Hynes.

The game was close into the second quarter, but the Wildcats scored 50 points after halftime in their 86-38 win. Six-foot-4 Will MacDonald (15), JP Frazier (13), and Jonathan Donovan (10) and Tommy Coughlin (10) also hit double figures.

“I think we create some mismatch problems in terms of our speed and strength on the perimeter,” said Marquis, whose team will play Portsmouth in the semis.

“York is dynamite this year,” noted Portsmouth coach John Mulvey.

The final game of the night was preceded by a ceremony recognizing the service of former Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney, who was killed in the line of duty in 2012. A similar ceremony for late Maine State Trooper Charles Black of South Berwick is planned for Saturday.

The Clippers won handily in the late game, 70-35 against Traip. Kevin Cummings and Coleman Brewster both scored 17 points, and Calvin Hewett added 13 points and a series of steals.

Declining numbers challenge Marshwood wrestling


SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Having won six of the last eight Maine Class A wrestling championships, Marshwood High School’s biggest hurdle to overcome this season will likely be itself.Screen Shot 2019-12-13 at 4.29.49 PM Screen Shot 2019-12-13 at 4.30.02 PM

Faced with declining participation in recent years, the Hawks start the 2019-20 campaign with eight wrestlers, down from last year’s starting number of 12.

A half dozen athletes have considered joining the team, but did not come out for one reason or another.

“You try to make it as fun as possible,” said second-year head coach Pat Howard, who wrestled at Marshwood and then was an assistant under coaching legend Matt Rix, who retired in 2018.

“But it’s a tough sport,” Howard said. “I’m not going to try and lie to a kid and say this is going to be a lot of fun; when your body is getting pounded on all the time.”

Of the eight on the team, three are back from last year: seniors Zach Mercier (heavyweight) and Carsen Goodwin (132 pounds), and junior Sean Moriarty (126).

A big loss was sophomore Aydin Rix-McElhinney, who decided to spend the year wrestling in Colorado Springs with Betterman Elite Wrestling Club, co-run by Matt Rix’s daughter, Deanna Rix Betterman (no relation).

The rest of the squad includes senior Christian Sacharczyk (170), who wrestled as a freshman, but took the past two years off; sophomore Ethan Boyle (160) and a trio of freshmen: Colby Isabelle (145, 152), Harry Lampesis (132, 138) and Rowan Carter (132, 138).

What’s disappointing for Howard is that there were eight potential freshman wrestlers coming in. But five decided not to go out.

Howard thought that finish might boost interest and draw in more kids, but it didn’t.

Marshwood, Noble and Massabesic have won 20 of the last 22 Class A titles.

“Even with eight wrestlers, you’re forfeiting six weight classes,” said Marshwood Athletic Director Rich Buzzell, who recently stepped down as a member of the MPA Wrestling Committee after eight years. “It’s scary. You’re two injuries away from (falling below the minimum allowed of seven wrestlers).”

Buzzell added, “We’re on the edge. All it takes is two injuries, sickness or illness.”

Howard said when he wrestled in the early 2000s, the team regularly had around 20 wrestlers.

At its height earlier this decade they had over 30; enough so they could field two teams to send to two different tournaments over a weekend.

Another former wrestler, Tom Howarth, was also involved coaching (and still is).

Their sons wrestled as well — Cody Hughes and Jackson and Luke Howarth.

Cody and Jackson were the same age. “They got their buddies to wrestle and all their friends and it spread,” Howard said. “A lot had to do with that.”

Thanks to Hughes, the Howarths and a bigger talent pool, Marshwood won four straight Class A titles from 2011 to 2015.

Cody Hughes is in his final year of wrestling in college at Virginia Tech.

All three Howarths are still involved helping the program with Luke serving as apaid assistant under Howard, while Tom is a volunteer assistant.

“But at the same time it is for everybody,” Howard continues. “You can be tall and skinny, short and stout; any of those guys can be a great wrestler. You don’t have to be a speciman athlete. I tell them that all the time. You just have to be mentally tough.”

Howard feels this current decline is a blip and he hopes more kids will start coming out in the next year or two.

“It’s tough to make a sport like this easy on the kids,” Howard said. “Kids don’t like being out there and they have to lose and they have no one to blame but themselves. That’s a tough pill for a lot of kids to swallow.”

Buzzell said some kids have a problem wearing the wrestling singlet, so some schools provide an alternative of shorts and a spandex shirt.

Buzzell also noted that many schools are experiencing the same problem. He said maybe four schools in Maine have 28 or more wrestlers and that’s it. One is neighboring Noble, the regional champ the past two years. The Knights have a robust 38 wrestlers according to their roster on the SMAA web site.

For now, the Hawks will have to make do. If more jump onboard that would be great.

“I’m working with what I have for right now and concentrate on getting those kids the best season possible,” Howard said. “I told them already, I don’t want you worrying about dual meet scores. Worry about your own individual goals. Team stuff will come later.”

Marshwood opened the season this past Saturday at the Westbrook Invitational.

Bryant finished the season with 1,494 yards rushing (on 144 carries, for a 10.4 average) and scored 31 touchdowns for a team that went 11-1 and won the Class B championship for the third year in a row

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — His quarterback called him the best player he’s ever played with.Screen Shot 2019-12-03 at 8.51.31 PM

Opposing coaches sang his praises all season. His own coach says he’s one of the hardest workers he’s ever had.

When it comes to Marshwood High School senior Justin Bryant, it’s not just the teammates and coaches in his backyard who have taken notice.

On Monday, the fullback/linebacker was named one of 12 semifinalists for the Fitzpatrick Trophy, awarded to the state’s top senior student-athlete in football.

“I think he has a great chance,” said Marshwood coach Alex Rotsko. “Statistically, he certainly matches up with anyone and he had great team success this year.”

Bryant finished the season with 1,494 yards rushing (on 144 carries, for a 10.4 average) and scored 31 touchdowns for a team that went 11-1 and won the Class B championship for the third year in a row.

He capped his season by rushing for 219 yards and scoring five touchdowns in the state championship game against Brunswick, a 48-28 win.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to go out playing with these guys,” said Bryant.

On defense, he starred at middle linebacker on a unit that allowed just 9.8 points per game.

“They’re very good on defense,” noted Kennebunk coach Joe Raffferty, whose team lost to Marshwood twice. “They proved that all season long.”

Bryant is joined on the list of semifinalists by Ryan Connors of Kennebunk, Connor Crawford of Ellsworth, Jarett Flaker of Scarborough, Kobe Gaudette of Thornton Academy, Camden Jordan of Class C champion Leavitt, Garit Laliberte of Maranacook, Payton Mackay of Wells, Zach Maturo of Class A champ Bonny Eagle, Anthony Poole of South Portland, Owen Richardson of Brunswick and Sean Tompkins of Cheverus.

The winner will be announced next month. The only Marshwood players to ever win the award, which began in 1971, were Brett Gerry (2014) and Steve Knight (1989).

After rushing for more than 1,100 yards as a junior, Bryant dedicated his offseason to strength training.

“He’s in the weight room more than anybody else,” said senior quarterback Connor Caverly. “After every game, Saturday and Sunday, he was in there busting his butt. It paid off.”

“Biggest thing, I think, is probably just his work ethic, during the season and in the offseason,” said Rotsko. “He’s one of the strongest kids we’ve ever had in the program, physically.”

Due to graduation losses, Bryant was one of three players on defense who switched positions, moves the coaching staff made in the preseason with their fingers crossed. He moved from outside linebacker in a 4-4 defense to middle linebacker in a 4-3, with Michael Cruz shifting from tackle to end, and Cullen Casey moving from safety to outside linebacker.

“I think that suited his skill-set better,” said Rotsko. “He had more run (stopping) responsibilities. He’s got good speed and he’s a big, strong kid.

“You hoped those moves would work out and they did. I think Justin was a much better middle linebacker than he was an outside backer.”

Bryant’s next move? Though he has the ability and the grades — a 91 average — to play college football at some level, he’s leaning toward joining the Marines.

“I’ve been thinking about going into the military for a while now,” he said during the season. “Not sure about playing in college.”

The Hawks held their end-of-season banquet on Sunday, celebrating their accomplishments but also leaning on the program’s two pillars of trust and being unselfish. Bryant’s numbers — along with those of Caverly and running backs John Valentine and Cam Cornett — were stunted by an offense that distributes carries and a team that often played second- and third-stringers after halftime.

“In Justin’s case, he could have run for 4,000 yards this year but that’s not what we’re all about,” said Rotsko. “The kids are great about that, being unselfish.”

PORTLAND, Maine — Justin Bryant wasn’t missing a moment of this one.

One year after an injury limited him to one play in the Class B championship game, the Marshwood High School senior fullback/linebacker made up for lost time as the Hawks won their third straight state title on Saturday night, beating Brunswick, 48-28, at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

Bryant rushed for four touchdowns as the Hawks (11-1) built a 28-14 halftime lead. He finished with 219 yards on 18 carries and five scores.

“He’s the best football player I’ve ever played with,” said senior quarterback/defensive end Connor Caverly. “The amount of work he’s put in is just outstanding. He’s in the weight room more than anybody else.”

It’s the fifth state title for Marshwood in the last six years, with four of them getting capped by wins over Brunswick (11-1) on this field.

But of these last three titles, this was the only state game Bryant’s had an impact in, due to untimely injuries. That made his performance all the sweeter.

“It’s so satisfying to finally play this game,” said Bryant. “My teammates last year, my substitutes, did a great job playing hard, but to finally get in the game and play and do well and win, it’s satisfying.”


In a season of dominance, this was no rout like last year’s 49-0 state game.

Down by two touchdowns at halftime, the Dragons executed an onside kick and recovered it. Traded punts and a good return by Chandler Coombs gave them possession inside the red zone, and they cashed in to cut the lead to 28-20 midway through the third quarter.

“We got back in the game. That’s what we wanted to do,” said Brunswick coach Dan Cooper. “Then they made plays to separate again.”

When the Hawks absolutely needed an answer, they produced one.

A 39-yard pass from Caverly to Cullen Casey (five catches for 108 yards) down the sideline set up a Caverly QB sneak for a 35-20 lead.

“It was important that we came back and scored right away, not give them the momentum,” said Marshwood coach Alex Rotsko.

“We knew the way their coverage was that Cullen was going to be open,” said Caverly (8-for-13 passing for 127 yards, and passing and rushing TDs). “It’s all Coach Rotsko and his game plan.”

Then, after John Valentine intercepted a pass that Cam Cornett had defended and deflected, the Hawks drove in from midfield, taking a 42-20 lead in the final minute of the third quarter when Caverly hit Valentine from 3 yards out.

Cornett, a quick sophomore who should see his role increase next year, finished with 78 yards on nine carries.

The matchup was an anticipated one, after both teams gave a top team from Class A a game during the regular season before rolling through their regional playoffs. Marshwood lost 28-27 at Thornton Academy, while Brunswick beat eventual champion Bonny Eagle, 27-14.

After stopping the Dragons’ first possession in the shadow of their red zone on downs, Marshwood struck quickly. A 35-yard sideline pass from Caverly to Casey was followed by Bryant bursting through a hole on the right and running 27 yards for a touchdown and 7-0 lead.

Brunswick answered back with a 10-play, 57-yard drive, one moved along by two penalties on the Hawks that provided first downs. It was 7-6 after one quarter.

Bryant scored his second touchdown of the day on his team’s second possession, capping an 11-play, 60-yard march with an 11-yard burst to the corner to make it 13-6, the extra point missing.

“I wouldn’t say we struggled on defense, but we didn’t shut them down,” said Bryant.

His third score came after his defense forced the game’s first punt and took over at its own 40. On the fifth play of the drive, he looked to have been bottled up by the second level of defense, but he broke a tackle, raced to the sideline and scored to up the lead to 20-6.

The Dragons got to within 20-14 when Coombs ran 60 yards for a score on a fake punt, but Bryant accelerated and then capped another drive with less than two minutes left, scoring his fourth touchdown from 11 yards out.

“That’s a very talented football team over there,” said Cooper. “They were big, fast and physical. We thought we’d be able to have some success defensively … they were better than us.”

Owen Richardson, who also missed last year’s state game with an injury, rushed for 115 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries for Brunswick.

But Bryant left with the glory.

“He’s been waiting three years to do this,” said Rotsko. “It was great for him to have a day and it seemed like our guys up front did a really good job.”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to go out, playing with these guys,” said Bryant. “It’s really exciting. I can’t even believe it, really.”

Mind game: Marshwood expects Kennebunk’s best in Class B South football final

By  Mike Zhe Nov 14, 2019 

The top-seeded Hawks (9-1) will try for their third straight Class B South championship when they host No. 2 Kennebunk (8-2) on Saturday (1 p.m.)

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Time was set aside during Marshwood High School football practice on Wednesday for coach Alex Rotsko to tell his team a story.

The year was 2014. After routing York, 41-12, in the final week of the regular season, the Hawks faced a rematch three weeks later in the regional final.  And nearly lost.Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 9.56.28 PM Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 9.56.12 PM Screen Shot 2019-11-14 at 9.55.58 PM

A blocked extra point by linebacker Zach Mitchell was the only thing that separated the teams by the time Marshwood’s 14-13 win concluded. It would complete its perfect season a week later in the state game, but had an important lesson reinforced.

“It’s difficult to play somebody twice in the same season,” said Rotsko. “No matter how much you prepare and how much you tell yourself it could be different, psychologically, somewhere in the back of your mind, you’re thinking, ‘We’ve beaten these guys already.’”

The top-seeded Hawks (9-1) will try for their third straight Class B South championship when they host No. 2 Kennebunk (8-2) on Saturday (1 p.m.). A regular-season game in Week 7 saw the Hawks score early and often, and play hard and nearly mistake-free in a 48-14 win.

This time, they’re preparing for a tougher test.

“We know they’re going to come out and play aggressive,” said quarterback/defensive end Connor Caverly. “We just know that if we play our game, and we play as hard as we can, it’s going to be a good one.”

By the time the teams take the field on Saturday, they’ll know one of the teams in next Saturday’s state game in Portland. No. 1 Brunswick (10-0) hosts No. 3 Lawrence (9-1) in the North championship game on Friday night.

Kennebunk coach Joe Rafferty knows his team has to play much better against Marshwood than it did in the regular season, especially on the defensive side of the ball, to have a chance at moving on.

“We have to be more mentally ready,” Rafferty told Seacoast Media Group. “They jumped on us early, and they kept pouring it on. We have to do a better job defensively and find a way to stop them.

“Offensively, we have to do some scoring on our own which we were unable to do last time. Marshwood is an excellent football team; we have to be at our best to have any chance to win.”

Three weeks ago, the Hawks scored touchdowns on their first four possessions to lead 28-0 at halftime. Fullback Justin Bryant (1,214 yards, 25 touchdowns on the season) rushed for 146 yards and three scores.

Cam Cornett rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown, and Caverly hit on 5-of-7 passes for 82 yards.

“In the first game, I was happy with our intensity level,” said Rotsko. “I think that’s the thing that makes me the most nervous. We need to come out with the same intensity.”

Like in the first meeting, the Hawks’ defense will have eyes on running backs Ryan Connors and Jake Sullivan. Quarterback Tommy Lazos will mix in some option.

The Rams advanced by coming back from an early deficit to beat No. 6 Cheverus, 28-14, in its semifinal last week.

One way for Kennebunk to keep it closer is to win the turnover battle, but that’s not a battle teams have won against Marshwood, which has 23 takeaways and just seven giveaways (four lost fumbles, three interceptions) on the season.

“We’ve been great from that standpoint all year,” said Rotsko.

The forecast calls for sunshine with temperatures in the low 30s, a picture-perfect setting for November championship football in Maine.

“It’s exciting,” said Caverly. “These are the games you look forward to playing.”

End of Season Round-Up: Marshwood Golf Team Finishes in Second Place in SMAA  – South

After collecting just one win in 2018, Coach Corriveau was hoping his Hawks golf team would bounce back to finish at .500 in 2019. Not satisfied with that goal, every member of the Marshwood Varsity Golf Team worked on their game and earned valuable points in each match, resulting in a second-place finish in SMAA South with a strong 7 – 3 record. Zach Glidden (Soph) paced the team this season, earning low medalist honors in seven matches. Oscar Whitcomb (Jr) was low medalist in one match. In addition to Glidden and Whitcomb, players who contributed points to help the Hawks secure a winning record included Jack Flynn (Jr), Devin Parmley (Jr), Jake Gordon (Sr), Connor Carey (Soph), and Liam Adams (Soph). Two members of the MHS Golf Team also earned individual honors this season. Sydney Pergerson (Fr) qualified for the Class A Girls State Championship at Natanis Golf Club in Vassalboro. Zach Glidden (Soph) has been selected to the SMAA – South All-Conference First Team
