first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio Latest Posts Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander. He began working for The American in August 2016. You can reach him via email at ELLSWORTH — In a matter of moments, a crowd of 400 people at Del Luce Stadium went from ecstatic to stunned.Minutes earlier, the Ellsworth boys’ soccer team had been on the offensive and appeared close to an elusive goal that would give it a win over visiting Mount Desert Island. The crowd could sense it, and there was anticipation in the air.Just when that goal looked to be coming, the Trojans pushed the ball back the other way and found just enough space down the right side for a score of their own. The visitors — not the home team — were the ones celebrating.The Eagles had left everything on the field and wanted nothing more than to beat their rivals in front of their home fans. Yet at the last minute, a chance at victory had evaporated into the cold, misty air that hovered above the field.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textA goal with just under four minutes to play Monday night sent Ellsworth to a 1-0 defeat against MDI. The loss was the Eagles’ second in a row against the Trojans after the team had previously gone more than a decade without a defeat in the rivalry.“These kids gave 100 percent,” Ellsworth coach Paul Lock said. “This game can be rough sometimes. … It just wasn’t meant to be tonight.”Although Ellsworth had a slight edge in possession, both teams had plenty of opportunities throughout the first half. The Eagles had the first chance of the game less than five minutes after the opening kickoff, but a big save kept the game scoreless early.With 22 minutes, 37 seconds to play in the first half, Ellsworth’s Sam Horne made a crucial clearance to send away an MDI shot that seemed destined for the back of the net. He was called into action once again three minutes later when he headed a hard-hit free kick away from goal.Ellsworth’s Zach Harris and MDI’s Matt Staples fight for possession during the second half of a high school boys’ soccer game Sept. 18 in Ellsworth. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLAn Ellsworth corner kick with 16:51 to play almost led to the opening goal, but a header from Zach Harris narrowly flew over the top-left corner of the net. The Eagles (3-3-1) came close to scoring twice more in the half via free kick, but it was to no avail.The visiting Trojans (1-5) stepped up the offensive pressure early in the second half and had a long-range attempt by Nick Duley and a close-range attempt by Leao Nelson saved in the center of the goal in the opening minutes. Ellsworth peppered the MDI goal for the ensuing 20 minutes, but the Eagles’ attempts couldn’t penetrate the visitors’ stout defense.Against the run of play, MDI found the breakthrough. Owen Mild found an opening down the right side of the field, ran into the box and fired a low-flying shot past Ellsworth goalkeeper Hunter Fernald for the game-winner.Lock and his players were visibly disappointed after the game, but with plenty of games to be played, he told his players they had a chance to bounce back as they approach the second half of their schedule.“I think we need to get more control in the midfield and get some more of those ground passes,” Lock said. “With our players, they just need to keep the locked-in focus they’ve had as a team this entire time. I think they can, and I think they will.”MDI’s Leao Nelson attempts a free kick as Ellsworth players form a wall in front of the goal during the second half of a high school boys’ soccer game Sept. 18 in Ellsworth. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThe visitors have long known the difficulties of beating this Ellsworth program. MDI’s last win against the Eagles came at home last October, but the Trojans’ win Monday marked the first time the team has beaten Ellsworth on the road in ages.“Ellsworth is a tough team with a great coach in Paul Lock, and they have great players and a great feeder system,” MDI head coach Tyler Frank said. “Whenever you can beat a team like that, it can do big things for your program. They’ll rebound from this one and be right in the thick of things.”Ellsworth was scheduled to play Washington Academy on Wednesday. The team’s next game is at home against Presque Isle (3-1) at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25.

first_imgSophomore guard Alyssa Karel and the Badgers can\’t get over the hump in close Big Ten contests.[/media-credit]After a tough overtime loss Monday night, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team finds itself in a familiar place during Tuesday’s practice: trying to forget about the Indiana game and move on to Iowa.The 67-61 defeat at the hands of the Hoosiers marks the seventh time in 10 conference losses this season the Badgers were competitive in the last three minutes of regulation or later.“You know, it’s kind of been the question after a lot of games this year,” Alyssa Karel said about bouncing back from the loss. “I think we’ve just got to put in the back or get it out of our mind.”“It’s always tough to put a loss like that behind you, especially when it was so close all throughout the game and even going into overtime,” forward Tara Steinbauer added. “Moving forward and focusing on Iowa is important, especially with such a short turnaround.”Although the heartbreaking losses have taken a toll on the Badgers, they aren’t about to give up. Wisconsin fully intends to remain competitive and make some noise in its remaining three games and the Big Ten tournament.“You’ve got choices to make,” UW head coach Lisa Stone said of the situation. “You can sit here and cry about it, or you can pick yourself back up off the ground and do something about it. That’s what we did today.”After defeating the Badgers, IU head coach Felisha Legette-Jack opened her postgame press conference by noting how impressed she was with Wisconsin, adding she believed they would bounce back well from the loss.“They’re going to be a force to be reckoned with in the Big Ten Tournament, no doubt about that,” Legette-Jack said. “They have the best defense, possibly in the conference.”Wisconsin led 52-48 with under a minute to play before Kim Roberson hit an open shot from beyond the arc with 1.3 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime.From there, the teams went back and forth to a 57-57 tie just over halfway through the extra period. Then Marshfield, Wis., native Jamie Braun hit a deep three to put the Hoosiers ahead to stay. Sophomore guard Jori Davis followed with a long two-point jumper to give Indiana a five-point lead.The Badgers never gave up, however, cutting the lead back to three points and continuing to foul through the end of the game to send Indiana to the free throw line.“I feel bad for the players,” Stone said. “They played their butts off and laid it on the line. Our job right now is to pick ourselves up and finish strong.”But the Badgers will be able to keep their heads up knowing though their record may not show it, they have remained competitive with or defeated nearly every Big Ten opponent they’ve matched up against this season.In addition to the Indiana home loss, Wisconsin lost by three points at Northwestern and Indiana, by two points at Penn State and by one point at home against Purdue.Despite losing by nine points in the end, the Badgers trailed by just three at Michigan State with 1:17 remaining in the game. UW also was within seven points in the last two minutes of their home contest with Ohio State.What’s more impressive is the fact that MSU and OSU are tied atop the Big Ten standings, each with an 11-3 record in conference play. Indiana is just 2 1/2 games behind at 9-6, good for sixth in the Big Ten.Purdue, which needed a three-pointer in the last eight seconds to edge past Wisconsin, sits just behind the conference leaders at 11-4. Minnesota, which the Badgers beat at home in December, is fourth in the standings.“I want our players to understand that we’re playing with the best,” Stone said. “We’re right there with the best, and you know, we’re learning every time we do it.”last_img read more

first_img Published on February 19, 2014 at 9:32 pm Contact David: | @DBWilson2 The final seconds, which have been so kind to Syracuse this season, finally betrayed the Orange.In the last 30 seconds alone, C.J. Fair missed a jumper, Tyler Ennis nearly committed a boneheaded turnover and Cooney bricked a potential game-tying 3. “We should’ve had two or three more losses the last three games,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said, “but we’ve just made unbelievable, tough plays at the end of games and the other teams miss shots or make mistakes.” On Wednesday, though, Boston College (7-19, 3-10 Atlantic Coast) made those plays. Olivier Hanlan scored a game-high 20 points, including a momentum-swinging 3 to start overtime, and Lonnie Jackson — a 56-percent free-throw shooter — went 4-for-4 down the stretch to ice the Eagles’ 62-59 overtime win and hand the top-ranked Orange (25-1, 12-1) its first loss of the season. The Carrier Dome crowd — 26,716 on this night — so used to erupting into celebration at the final buzzer was rendered silent.“You can’t expect to pull all these games out, especially when the momentum and everything is on the other team’s side,” Fair said. “It’s very difficult what we’ve done in the past, pulling these games out, and this one just shows that you can’t pull them all out.”BC’s stunning upset — perhaps the biggest of the season — ends the Orange’s program-record 25-game winning streak and 46-game win streak against unranked teams in the Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd even after a slow start, it looked as if both of those streaks would continue. Despite an abysmal offensive first half, SU took an eight-point lead into the break that quickly stretched to 13 after Syracuse scored on its first two possessions.But the Orange’s defense lost its edge, and its offense reverted back to its mediocre self. SU shot just 30.4 percent from the field in the second half, while Boston College shot 52.2 percent and went 7-for-12 from beyond the arc.Leading the way was Hanlan, who went just 1-for-5 in the first half and missed all three of his 3-point attempts.The sophomore point guard hit a trio of early second-half triples as Syracuse watched an 11-point lead evaporate to five.“He’s just a really good player,” said SU guard Tyler Ennis of his fellow Canadian. “He’s able to facilitate, he’s able to score, so he’s a tough person to guard out there.“If he gets it going, their whole team is going to get it going.”Hanlan didn’t hit another 3 for the rest of regulation, but he didn’t need to. He found Joe Rahon for a 3 with 8:53 remaining to cut the lead to two, and two-plus minutes later he found Rahon in the corner for a 3 to put the Eagles up four.Once again, the Orange needed a comeback. Ennis scored back-to-back buckets to tie the game, and gave Syracuse a chance to win in regulation with a long offensive rebound off his own missed layup.But with two seconds left, Rakeem Christmas’ hook shot rimmed out.“He should have gone to the basket. That’s not the right play,” Boeheim said. “You’ve got to make that, but you’re not going to make all those plays.”SU got its chances in overtime, too, but the usually infallible Orange was uncharacteristically unable to convert.After Hanlan and Patrick Heckmann sunk back-to-back 3-pointers to start overtime, Syracuse again found itself in a four-point hole. And, again, it had the chances to dig out of it.A block by Ennis set up a runout for Fair the other way. It was just the way he scored the game-winner against North Carolina State, but this time Heckmann was there to slam Fair’s layup off the backboard.On the other end, Hanlan — perhaps overly confident — pulled up for 3 on a two-on-one. His shot that would have silenced the crowd for good bricked off the rim. BC would have to wait a few more moments to celebrate in silence, just as Syracuse did a week earlier in Pittsburgh.A six-win team knocking off a 25-win team might have been just as much a miracle as that 35-foot heave, but a loss was bound to come eventually.“You’re just not going to win all these games,” Boeheim said. “I’m not sure exactly how we’ve won some of the games we’ve won.” Comments With six seconds left against Boston College, Trevor Cooney, who had made just one 3-pointer in the game, chucked up an off-balance 3 from the top of the key. Only this time there was no improbable swish, just the clang of leather on iron. Syracuse’s final shot was one of desperation, but that hadn’t stopped it from going in before.

first_imgFive-time Olympic champion Katie Ledecky has withdrawn from the 200-metre freestyle at the World Aquatic Championships due to illness.USA Swimming made the announcement just hours before the first heats of the event in Gwangju, South Korea on Tuesday. Ledecky went on to compete in the 1500m freestyle preliminary heats on Monday and recorded the fastest time by 2.69 seconds to qualify for Tuesday’s final.If she had not withdrawn from the 200m event, Ledecky would have had to swim in both the 1500m freestyle final and 200m freestyle semi-finals within almost an hour of each other. “A decision has been made by Team USA in consultation with Katie, her coach and the team’s medical staff for her to withdraw from the 200m freestyle event on medical grounds,” National team managing director Lindsay Mintenko said in a statement. “The team will determine her participation in this evening’s 1500m final later in the day.”Katie has not been feeling well since arriving to Gwangju on July 17, and these precautionary measures are being taken to ensure her well-being and proper recovery, and to allow her to focus her energy on an abbreviated schedule.”Ledecky is coming off a runner-up finish in the 400m freestyle on Sunday. It was her first loss in that event at a major international meet as she was outpaced in the last 50m.The 22-year-old – who has 14 world championship gold medals – had never removed herself from an event at a meet of this calibre since she started on the world stage eight years ago.last_img read more

first_imgNORTHWOOD — It’s a suspended sentence and probation for a Lake Mills man who stole over $2000 from a Worth County convenience store.24-year-old Justin Ivey was charged in January with second-degree theft. He’s accused by authorities while working at the Kum & Go store near the Diamond Jo Casino of taking items off the shelves or having someone else bring up an item to the counter, ring them up as returned items, and then giving the cash to the same person. Authorities say this happened a dozen times this past November, totaling nearly $2300.Ivey originally pleaded not guilty but later pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree theft. District Judge James Drew this week sentenced Ivey to a two-year suspended prison sentence and two years probation.last_img read more
