It has been a busy week of soccer for both varsity teams. The week was highlighted during our rivalry matches vs. Fort Kent on Tuesday (girls) and Wednesday (boys). Although there are still many games to play in a season, there's always something special in the air when Fort Kent comes to town.
In Tuesday night's game, our Lady Owls met a very determined Lady Warriors team. Although the game was close several weeks ago in Fort Kent when our girls lost 3-1, this time, the Warriors stepped it up a notch, winning the contest 6-1. Scoring the lone goal for the Owls was junior Shannon Blanchette.
Wednesday night the Warrior boys came to town, and so did half of the residents of Fort Kent! With a large crowd looking on, the Owl boys put on quite a show, proving that they deserve to be on top of the Class C standings for Eastern Maine. The owls scored twice in the first half, both by junior striking star Ian Lee, and looked like they were on their way to an easy win. Since nothing comes easy against Fort Kent, the Warriors struck immediately after the break, pulling the score to 2-1. Fortunately, Lee wasn't satisfied with his 2 first half goals, as he netted 2 more in the second half. The 4-1 victory proves that Madawaska is the team to beat in Class C East.
