The fall sports season was one of triumph and making memories and Mid-Coast teams made plenty of noise.

Football saw all three teams make the playoffs. Brunswick, the defending Class B champion, was ousted by Lawrence in the semifinals, while Morse lost to Gardiner in its quarterfinal and Mt. Ararat was ousted by eventual state champion Marshwood in the Class C South quarterfinals.

Soccer produced an abundance of strong play.

The Brunswick girls dazzled, winning 13 of 14 regular season games and reaching the Class A North semifinals before losing to Bangor. Morse also made the playoffs, but lost to York in the Class B South quarterfinals.

On the boys’ side, Mt. Ararat lost in double overtime to Mt. Blue in the Class A North quarterfinals and Brunswick fell to eventual state champion Lewiston in its quarterfinal round game.

Mt. Ararat’s field hockey team lost in overtime to Cony in the quarterfinals. Morse also made the playoffs and lost to Nokomis in the quarterfinals.

Brunswick’s second-year varsity volleyball program didn’t just win a match for the first time this fall, but the Dragons also made it to the playoffs for the first time, losing to Bonny Eagle in the Class A preliminary round.

Five of six local teams qualified for the cross country state meet, as both Brunswick teams and both Mt. Ararat squads, along with the Morse girls, took part. Mt. Ararat’s Lisandro Berry-Gaviria had no peer in winning the Class A boys’ race.

Mt. Ararat’s golf team was the lone local squad to get to the state match. The Eagles tied for fifth in Class A.
