    CUMBERLAND—Greely put its best chances in the back of the net. Falmouth sent its best looks off the post or wide of the mark. That, in short, was the difference in the latest chapter of one of the state's best girls' soccer rivalries Saturday afternoon at Hutchins Field.

  • Portland rides second half surge to win over Deering

    PORTLAND—A mere 72 minutes into the new season, Portland's football team found itself at a crossroads Friday evening at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The Bulldogs, who came oh-so-close to playing for a state title a year and who entertain championship dreams this autumn, were staring an 0-2 s...
