As a native of Texas, she is an unapologetic Dallas Cowboys fan. tbigler@mdislander.com BAR HARBOR — For the first time in Mount Desert Island football history, the Trojans are headed to the state championship game.MDI avenged its only loss of the season Friday night when it claimed the Class C regional title with a 12-7 win over the Winslow Black Raiders. MDI also received an award for displaying good sportsmanship throughout the season.The game started out in Winslow’s favor. After just three minutes, Winslow’s Nate St. Amand ran the ball in for a 54-yard touchdown. After a successful extra point, the Black Raiders had seven points on the board with 9 minutes, 6 seconds remaining in the first quarter.After a failed field-goal attempt by the Black Raiders and a slow second quarter with no offensive push from the Trojans, MDI finally answered with a touchdown of its own with just 5.3 seconds left in the half.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textIt wasn’t the way MDI (9-1) had planned on finding the end zone; Graham Good carried the ball in from near the goal line on first down, but the ball was knocked out of his hands, and Colby Lee was there to recover the ball in the end zone for the touchdown. The Trojans’ 2-point conversion was no good, and the half ended 7-6.The two defenses battled out the third quarter, but neither team was able to gain enough yardage to get a good offensive drive going. MDI, though, would find a breakthrough after two personal foul penalties against Winslow (9-2) gave the home team a huge opportunity to drive the ball in for a touchdown. Chris Farnsworth did so, though the ensuing 2-point conversion attempt failed once again.Winslow seemed primed for a touchdown with 9:22 left in the game, but quarterback Ryan Gagnon saw a potential touchdown pass intercepted near the end zone by MDI defensive back James Carroll. The Trojans did leave Winslow one last chance to score with little time left on the clock, but their defense forced the Black Raiders to turn the ball over on downs.As a team, MDI recorded 188 rushing yards and 49 passing yards of total offense. Lee had 19 carries for 75 yards, and Good had 17 carries for 58 yards. Farnsworth had 12 carries for 52 yards.MDI’s defense held Winslow to 131 rushing yards and 37 passing yards. Carroll had four tackles, one assist and an interception. Luke Mitchell had four tackles and two assists, while Micah Hallett had three tackles and five assists. Drew Rich had four tackles and two assists, and Good had three tackles and two assists. Farnsworth had four tackles and two assists.“I am so proud of the way our kids played with heart vs. Winslow,” said head coach Mark Shields. “They just kept battling all night long and eventually came out on top.”The result ends Winslow’s streak of consecutive Class C titles at two. MDI will face the Wells Warriors (10-1) in the state championship at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19. The game will be played at Portland’s Fitzpatrick Stadium after the conclusion of the Class A title game between Portland and Bonny Eagle.“We have dedicated this championship victory to our community,” Shields said. “This is for every MDI football player and supporter of the program. We will give Wells everything we have in the state championship.” Bio Sea urchin subject of aging research – July 30, 2017 Latest posts by Taylor Bigler Mace (see all)center_img Town Hill Takeout serves up inventive tacos – August 18, 2017 Latest Posts MDI man reaches 41 straight years of daily runs – July 31, 2017last_img read more

David Moyes Named New West Ham Manager

first_imgWest Ham have appointed former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes as their new manager, the struggling Premier League club announced on Tuesday.“We believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club,” joint chairman David Sullivan said.The Hammers sacked manager Slaven Bilic on Monday after a poor run of results that have left the east London side languishing in the relegation zone. Saturday’s chastening 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool convinced Sullivan and co-owner David Gold that Bilic’s time was up, with the pair banking on the 54-year-old Moyes’s understanding of the English game to keep the club in the top flight.“We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club,” said Sullivan.“He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm.”Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from his post Sunderland at the end of last season, having failed to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier League.Despite that, and an underwhelming stint in Spain with Real Sociedad, the Hammers are backing the Scot to help shore up a leaky defence as well as getting the best out of big-money summer signings Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez.After Moyes emerged as the leading contender to replace Bilic, many West Ham fans regarded his proposed arrival at the London Stadium with scepticism.But Moyes, whose first game in charge will be at Watford a week on Sunday following the international break, urged them to get behind him and his squad.“I’m really looking forward to meeting the supporters and being in the stadium with them,” Moyes said in comments published on West Ham’s Twitter feed.“I’m looking forward to seeing them get right behind the team, and my team also. We need the support, we need everybody with us.”He added: “It’s a big job we have in hand now but I’m sure with everybody together we can get the right results between now and the end of the season.”Former West Ham defender Bilic is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season, the Croatian’s exit following those of Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester) and Ronald Koeman (Everton).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
