Madawaska Teams Split vs. Central Aroostook

In their home opener of the sea on, the Lady Owls lost a hard-fought game to the Lady Panthers of Central Aroostook.  The Owls started off strong when junior Shannon Blanchette blasted a shot over the Central Aroostook keeper.  Freshman Aspen Cote also scored for the Owls.  Unfortunately, the visiting Panthers earned their 3rd victory by scoring late in the game. (Bangor News Article)

In the second game of the evening, the Madawaska Owl boys dominated the Central Aroostook boys, winning by a score of 4-0.  This game marks the 3rd shutout for the owls in 4 games this season.  They owls have only given up one goal in 4 games.  Daren Jandreau and Jake Gendreau each had a goal for the Owls, while Ian Lee scored 2. (Bangor News Article)

Madawaska Boys Beat Houlton

The defending Eastern Maine champion Houlton Shiretowners were in less than championship form when they came to Madawaska this week.  Although the score was 1 to 1 at halftime, the Owls turned on the heat in the second half to pull away with a 4 - 1 victory.

Goalkeeper Tim Deschenes of Madawaska was nothing short of amazing with several diving saves to keep the Shires of the scoreboard.   Junior Ian Lee scored his second hat-trick in 2 games this season, while Travis Thibeault added his own goal for the Owls.

Madawaska travels to Caribou on Friday to face the Caribou Vikings in their own home opener.  Kickoff will be at 7:00!

Paint Party Sucess

The Madawaska School athletic department wants to say a big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who donated their valuable time to come help with the painting of the snack shack, dugouts, and kick board.  Also, thank you to all the volunteers who helped lay a new path of crushed rock (generously donated by Ed Pelletier and Sons), especially Mr. Tim Nadeau who supplied his own loader to make the job as easy as possible.

For photos of the volunteer efforts, Mrs. Gina Jandreau put together a wonderful gallery available to view @

Painting Party - Saturday, August 18 @ 9:00am

It has been several years since the soccer field buildings have had some TLC.  Several parents have come forward and expressed interest in helping paint some of these buildings and get things looking the way they should be. 

Due to this fact, you are invited to a “painting party” at the 11th Avenue varsity game field this coming Saturday, August 18 @ 9:00am!  Our hope is to paint the snack shack, the kick board, and the team dugout benches during this time. 

If possible we ask that you bring any personal painting supplies that you may have.  We will need paint scrapers, brushes, and rollers.  All are invited to attend, the more people we have helping out, the quicker the job will get done!

Madawaska Girls & Boys Earn Victories

In Mars Hill yesterday afternoon, both Madawaska Varsity teams earned victories to start off their seasons on the right foot!  During the first game, the Lady Owls came back from a halftime deficit to win the game 3-2.  (Read the Bangor Daily News info)

Later in the evening, the Owl Boys dominated a rough game overall to shutout the Panthers 3-0.  Ian Lee led the way with a hat trick for the Owls.

Both teams play Houlton next Monday, August 21, with our Lady Owls taking the road and our boys playing their home opener.
