Tuesday, October 9, proved to be typical October evening of soccer...cold! Unfortunately, the air wasn't the only thing that was cold, as the Madawaska Owl boys team received a post-harvest wake-up call as very determined Caribou Vikings team met them on the field.
Displaying speed and skill that is common of class B playoff teams, Caribou showed Madawaska that they will have to step-up their game if they want to make a run in the playoffs. Scoring for Caribou were Nolan McDuffie with two goals and Kameron Manter with one. Tim Deschenes made 7 saves of the 10 shots on goal that he faced. Many of those saves were incredible diving saves that kept the game close for the Owls.
This is the first loss for the Owls this season, and the first game in which they have been held scoreless. Hopefully the remaining 2 games of the season, and the extra practice time will prepare them for the battles ahead in playoffs.
The boys and girls varsity teams take the field this Thursday, October 11, against Limestone. The girls game will be @ 5:00 and the boys game @ 7:00.
