  1. The order has been changed for next Wednesday’s home and away soccer games with Bucksport. Varsity will now be playing first and the JV will be playing the second game. 


  1. Varsity Girls’ Soccer Report - Old Town put up a good battle but was not enough to match the talent and ability of the EMS Girl's Varsity.  Paige Sawyer opened up the scoring in the first half on a beautiful pass from Aubrianna Griffith.  The EMS Girls kept the ball on their end for the entire half but could not come up with a second goal.  After halftime the Old Town team came out very strong and scored the equalizer.  Not long after that Paige Sawyer scored again off an excellent pass from Addie Laslie to take the lead.  Gianna Anderson scored the insurance goal off a steal from an Old Town defender.  The defensive play by the EMS Girls proved too tough to score against for the rest of the game.  Overall it was a team effort that proved too tough for Old Town to overcome.


  1. Cross-Country Meet Report – In yesterday’s cross-country meet at Bucksport, we had a great meet placing 1st in both girls’ and boys’ races! For boys Logan McGowan placed 1st with a time of 12:22 with Matt Cormier 2nd being just a step behind Logan. Landon Roberts, Carter Colson and Everett Fointaine were neck and neck all race and placed top fifteen! For the girls Caroline Mazgaj placed first with a time of 13:42. Leah McPherson placed 4th and never stopped smiling! Adriana Richardson pushed herself and got into the top 15. Great job Team!!!You are all reminded of the Parker Pruett race on Monday at Sumner High School.
