The 2010 fall sports season is in the books, but there are still plenty of accolades to bestow.

By virtue of their dramatic and triumphant performances, athletes from Falmouth, Freeport, Greely, North Yarmouth Academy and Yarmouth factored strongly in postseason all-star teams.

Here’s a glimpse:

Boys’ soccer

Yarmouth’s boys’ soccer team might have been the best in the state this fall, regardless of class, and as always, the Clippers had plenty of company in these parts. The Western Maine Conference all-star team featured an abundance of familiar names.

Falmouth seniors Michael Bloom and Sam White, Freeport senior Ryan Farley, Greely senior Jon Coyne and Yarmouth senior Luke Pierce and juniors Pau Carnero Melero and Chris Knaub made the Class B first team, meaning seven of the 12 spots belonged to local players.

The second team included Falmouth senior Nick Bachman, sophomore J.P. White, Greely senior Sean Ross and Yarmouth senior Kyle Groves and junior Sam Torres.

Western C champion North Yarmouth Academy placed juniors Sam Leishman, Matt Michaud and Ryan Rousseau on the first team.
