  1. Girls’ Soccer Games Today – Good luck to our JV and Varsity girls’ soccer teams today as they travel to Brewer at 2PM today. Boys play Brewer at home tomorrow.


  1. Boys’ Varsity Report from Friday - The Falcons boys varsity soccer team traveled to Bucksport on Friday afternoon. The boys worked hard throughout the game, completed short passes and communicating extremely well with each other. Miles Palmer opened the scoring by putting the ball into the net on a corner kick. He truly "BENT IT LIKE BECKHAM". David Baugh scored two goals, one assisted by Michael Palmer and the other by Billy. Great defensive efforts by Hunter Curtis, Owen Frank, Luke Perry, Tanner Seura, and Liam Stephenson and strong goaltending by Lucas Fendl limited the Bucks to long shots and lots of frustration. Up next is a home game against Brewer on Wednesday. Great game boys!
