Despite controlling the ball in a scoreless first half, the Ellsworth/Sumner football team had a tough time finding its way into the end zone against the Stearns/Lee Academy Minutemen. In need of big plays late in the second half, the Eagles finally found the breakthrough.Touchdowns by Jacob Shorey and Declan White and a successful 2-point conversion pass by Connor Crawford gave Ellsworth/Sumner (2-5) a 14-12 win over the Minutemen (1-6) in Millinocket on Friday. It was the Eagles’ first road win of the season.“This was a total team effort on our part, and it felt great to get another win out there after how hard our kids worked all week,” Ellsworth/Sumner head coach Duane Crawford said. “We focused on controlling the clock all week long in practice, and it paid off for us.”Shorey carried the ball 35 times for 154 yards and scored his touchdown on a 1-yard plunge after Stearns/Lee Academy scored the game’s first touchdown. After White answered another Stearns/Lee Academy touchdown by going 70 yards for the score on the ensuing kickoff return, Crawford found Fickett for the conversion to give the Eagles a 14-12 lead that they held for the rest of the game. Ellsworth/Sumner ran a total of 65 offensive plays.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOn defense, Andrew Brown led the way with 10 solo tackles and three assisted tackles. Declan White added a solo tackle and eight assisted tackles, and Chris Fickett recorded an interception.“We were really pounding the ball well the entire game, and we put emphasis on stopping their quarterback because of how well he played against Washington Academy and Bucksport,” Duane Crawford said. “They really tested us in that second half, but our group got together and responded quickly when we really needed.”Ellsworth/Sumner’s next game will be at home against the Maine Central Institute Huskies (7-0) at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21. The Huskies, which are the top team in Class D North this season, have not won a game by fewer than 10 points all year.“MCI is a really good team, and they’ll be a really tough challenge for us,” Duane Crawford said. “After this win, our guys are really excited to get out there and play in front of our home fans these next two games.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020
Colombo, July 21: South African spinner Keshav Maharaj on Saturday shattered a few records when he ripped through the Sri Lankan line-up in the first innings on Day 2 of the second and final Test at the SSC Stadium here.Maharaj returned career-best figures of 9/129, to become the 19th overall and only the second South African after Hugh Tayfield to achieve the rare feat.Tayfield achieved the feat in 1957, when he scalped 9/113 against England in Johannesburg.Till date, only Englishman Jim Laker (10/53) and former India skipper Anil Kumble (10/74) have picked all 10 wickets in an innings of a Test match.Maharaj, who ended the opening day with eight wickets, picked up his ninth when he packed veteran Rangana Herath’s (35) to end the stiff 74-run last wicket stand with Akila Dananjaya (43 not out) as the hosts were bundled out for 338. His effort is also the best against the Islanders by any opposition bowler.In reply, the South Africans were bundled out for a paltry 124 in their first essay, with Akila Dananjaya (5/52) and Dilruwan Perera (4/40) even as veteran Hashim Amla became the third Protea to notch 9,000 Test runs.

NEW DELHI: Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer feels current captain Virat Kohli is the best-ever white-ball cricketer the country has ever produced.Jaffer was asked to pick one between Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma and Kohli and the Mumbai great simply took the name of the current Team India captain, as per his interview to Crictracker. Jaffer, who featured in 31 Tests for Team India and scored 1944 runs, was also asked to pick his favourite captain and he took the name of current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. “Sourav Ganguly was the one who made the team after 2000. He had the temperament, backed the players and gave them a longer rope,” Jaffer said. “He made Sehwag open the batting and brought players like Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh.” Jaffer was recently appointed as the new head coach of Uttarakhand Ranji team for the upcoming domestic season. He had called time on his illustrious 24-year professional career on March 7 this year. “It’s a new challenge for me as I’ve only retired recently. I have seen the development in Vidarbha cricket when I worked alongside their coach Chandrakant Pandit,” Jaffer said. “My aim was to stay connected to the game and then try and help the youngsters, make them understand their potential, and improve a team. It’s something I really enjoy and I’m looking forward to my coaching stint,” he added. IANS Also Watch: It’s Better to Die Than Live Like This: Street Hawker in Guwahati

(REUTERS)-Eritrean world champion Ghirmay Ghebreslassie and Kenyan Mary Keitany powered to dominant victories in the New York City Marathon yesterday.The 20-year-old Ghebreslassie won the men’s race in two hours, seven minutes and 51 seconds, more than a minute ahead of Kenyan Lucas Rotich.Mary Keitany of Kenya crosses the finish line to win the women’s field of the 2016 New York City Marathon in Central Park in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York. REUTERS/Mike SegarKeitany became the first woman in three decades to win three consecutive New York marathons with a runaway performance.The 34-year-old took the lead by the ninth mile, made a major move by the 15th mile and won by more than three minutes in 2:24:26.Ghebreslassie’s victory ended a string of four victories in a row by Kenyan men in the race and denied the African nation a fourth consecutive sweep of New York men’s and women’s titles.“I am really proud with my victory today to be the first one from my country,” said Ghebreslassie. “Nobody before from Eritrea won in the major marathons.”Fourth in both this year’s London Marathon and the Rio Olympics, New York’s youngest ever winner joined Rotich and Ethiopian Lelisa Desisa in breaking away from a crowded pack at about the 22km mark.By 35km Ghebreslassie held a 20 second lead over Rotich and was never threatened.Third went to 39-year-old American Abdi Abdirahman (2:11:23).Defending champion Stanley Biwott, suffering from calf problems, was never a factor and dropped out before 15km.American Dathan Ritzenhein, among the early leaders, also failed to finish, pulling out at mile 19.Keitany became the first woman to win the race three consecutive times since eight-time winner Grete Waitz’s streak of five in a row ended in 1986.“Winning three times means a lot to me,” said Keitany. “It’s not easy but I got it.”She joined Waitz and Britain’s Paul Radcliffe as the only women to win the race at least three times. Radcliffe’s titles came in 2004, 2007-8.Only fellow Kenyan Joyce Chepkirui was in contention after 20km and Keitany, who surprisingly was not picked for Kenya’s Rio Olympic team, pulled steadily away.Compatriot Sally Kipyego took second in 2:28.01 and U.S. Olympian Molly Huddle made her marathon debut in an impressive 2:28:13 for third.Olympic triathlon gold medallist Gwen Jorgensen was 14th and fellow American Kim Conley 16th in their marathon debuts.U.S. Rio Paralympic silver medallist Tatyana McFadden continued her dominance of New York women’s wheelchair racing, winning her fourth consecutive title in 1:47:43.The victory was the fifth overall in the race and 17th major marathon win for McFadden, who defeated Swiss Manuela Schar by more than a minute.Swiss Rio champion Marcel Hug narrowly edged out five-time winner Kurt Fearnley of Australia in the men’s race.Hug, who was running his sixth marathon of the year, was given the win in 1:35:49. He also won in 2013.
