6. Good luck to our ball teams today vs. Cohen. The girls are at home and the boys leave today at 2:15.

7. Ellsworth's JV Falcon Boys went on the road tonight taking their skills up to face Lincoln. More stifling defense from the boys started a 10-2 run and once again the starters were pulled for the reserve players. Even though the full court press was removed the Ellsworth Falcons allowed only ONE basket the first half and took a 14-2 lead into half time. The second half we invited the Lincoln team to shoot by placing all our defense in the paint and shoot they did making two three pointers and a long 2 in three consecutive plays. At that time it was 10-14 in Ellsworth's favor and the Falcons went on a tear for the remainder of the game finishing up with a convincing win over the JV Lincoln team by a score of 39-17. Notable standouts were Matt R. with four assists, four steals and 6 points. Austin H. with 8 assists and 6 points. Colby H, Mike L., Isiah A. and Jack S.rebounded and blocked everything they could see. As always with these boys my proudest moment as a coach was when the boys said to allow the reserve players more playing time since we had a lead. Great job Falcons!

8. On Saturday, the Falcons traveled to Lincoln and had a tough time getting the offense going in the first half. The defense, though, was stout and the Falcons only trailed by 5 points going into the second half 17 to 12.

In the third Quarter, the offense came to life with Isaac Wardwell scoring all fourteen of his points and Connor Crawford scoring 8 of his 14 game points as the Falcons scored a total of 31 points to take a 43 to 29 lead into the fourth quarter. The team continued with strong scoring and defense in the final quarter finishing with a 60 to 35 win.

Hunter Fernald scored 6 points, Jackson Curtis five, and Conner Wagstaff, Atticus Deeny, Darby Barry, and Matt Burnett each scored four points. Tyler Mitchell added 3 points and Cameron Cote 2 for the total of 60 points.
The Falcons evened their record at 2 and 2 and look to build on Saturday’s success at Cohen School on Monday.

9. The JV Falcon Girls ventured to Lincoln on Saturday to complete their fourth road game in the last ten days. The northern weather must have agreed with the young ladies because they came out very strong. The team is made up of mostly fifth and sixth graders and they played against a team of all sixth and seventh graders.

Age did not matter for the Falcons as they beat the Lincoln team by a score of 38 to 22. Scoring for the Falcons with two points each were, Annabella Johnson and Autumn Paul. Danaee Felix and Jenna Ramsdell had four each. Tossing in eight were Kylie Robidoux and Elise Dow. While Edie Salzig put in ten for the afternoon.

A special notice should go to Hayden Hardison who played tremendous
defense the entire game.

10. Raffle tickets for Isabelle the American Girl Doll and raffle tickets for a remote control helicopter and laser tag tanks are on sale in the front lobby each morning until 8:10. Tickets are $1 or 6 for $5. Proceeds to benefit the 8th grade class. The last day to buy a ticket is this Wednesday. The drawing will be on Thursday, December 18.
