Bowdoin’s men’s soccer run ends
The Bowdoin men’s soccer team came oh so close to playing for the Division III championship last weekend, but its season ended in heartache with a 2-1 overtime loss to Lynchburg (Va.) in the national semifinals in San Antonio, Texas. Former Cape Elizabeth High standout Ben Brewster scored early in the second half to give the Polar Bears a lead they would hold until 2:01 remained in regulation, when Lynchburg pulled even, necessitating overtime. There, with 16 seconds to go, Lynchburg scored again to end Bowdoin’s season at 15-2-3.
More all-stars named
In addition to the all-stars mentioned in last week’s edition, local field hockey and soccer players received additional honors. Brunswick’s Kyia Jensen was named to the all-state field hockey team. The boys’ all-state soccer team included Brunswick’s Mitchell Black and Garrett Brann and Morse’s Eric Trautman-Mosher. On the girls’ side, Brunswick’s Allison Walton and Mt. Ararat’s Jaymee Wallace made the all-state squad. Walton was also named the girls’ Class A Player of the Year, all-New England and shared All-American honors with Waterville’s Jordan Pellerin.
