[Oct 18 2018] Heartbreak!
It was a cold and windy day at the Camden High School JV pitch when Camden 7 and Lincolnville squared off for a semifinal game in the Busline League Coed Soccer playoffs. It was an exceedingly competitive game, and both teams played extremely well. The Lynx actually held a possession advantage during the first half and spent a fair amount of time in the Camden defensive zone but were unable to generate any particularly dangerous shots on goal while at the other end, the Windjammers were able to pound one home early at the 5 minute mark. Given the strength of the competing team, LCS had done very well to emerge down by 1.
The second half played more evenly, with perhaps a slight edge to the Jammers, but it was Lincolnville that scored first on a shot by midfielder Jordan Peasley from straight off the goal and about 25 yards out with 40 minutes played. The tie held until 54:50 when Camden broke through the Lynx defense with to force a diving deflection by LCS keeper Aiden Aselton. An alert Camden forward pounced on it an sent it home before the LCS defense could react to clear the ball. That was followed 45 seconds later by an insurance goal for Camden to bring the final tally to 3 to 1. Both teams gave their all throughout the game and provided the fans with a fine example of middle level soccer.
[Oct 16 2018] Hawks downed by Lynx
In a most exciting and dramatic game on a beautifully sunny day the fifth seeded Lincolnville eleven defeated the fourth seeded Hope Hawks 2 to 0 in the Coed Busline League quarterfinals at Hope on Tuesday, October 16th. It was a well-fought match by both sides, so much so that it really was a shame that there had to be a winner. The Lynx came out very aggressively at the start of the game and dominated the first ten minutes or so, but the Hawks rallied and the rest of the half played more evenly with Lincolnville owning a slight edge in possession. There was one extremely threatening try by Hope—the most dangerous moment for either side in the first half—when LCS keeper Aiden Aselton made a fine diving deflection of a powerful Hawks’ shot with the bouncing ball just cleared out of the box in time by the Lynx defense while Aselton scrambled to his feet. But despite the best efforts of each side, they headed into halftime still locked in a scoreless tie.
The Lynx took the field in the second half and established dominance almost immediately. That is not to say that the Hawks did not remain dangerous; they fired an excellent free kick after a hands ball from just outside of the top of the LCS box that barely skimmed over the crossbar and followed that soon thereafter with a corner that looked to be curling into the goal but instead landed on the roof of the net. Both sides were moving the ball well and aggressively containing each other’s offense, but something had to give. And so it did with 51:58 played when midfielder Jaden Johnson sent a pass up to defensive midfielder Mason Clark about five yards past center field near the right sideline. Clark skillfully drove the sideline before crossing the ball into midfielder Griffin Dubrow who had established himself in open space in the middle of the Hawks’ box. Dubrow smoothly redirected the shot for the score causing pandemonium on the LCS bench. The Lynx picked up an insurance goal two minutes and 25 seconds later on a free kick from just off the corner of the Hawks’s box. Clark teed the ball up and then calmly fired his kick over the crowd and placed it perfectly in the back half of the Hope net. A fired up LCS eleven continued to keep up the pressure on the Hope defense, but the Hawks continued to push to get even as time ran down. However, the Lincolnville defensive unit of Roo Boetsch, Avery Luft, Lincoln Outerbridge, and Liliana Palise—reinforced by defensive midfielders Bailey Curtis and Clark and backed up by keeper Aselton—stood firm as they had all game. Meanwhile midfielders Kara Andrews and Johnson along with Dubrow and striker Jordan Peasley continued to exert pressure in the Hope end until the final whistle. It was a well-deserved win for the Lincolnville booters who will advance to the semifinals this coming Thursday against the winner of the Camden 7 versus Nobleboro game.
[Oct 15 2018] LCS starts playoff season with a rain soaked win
A saturated field and wet weather combined with an young, eager South Bristol team posed a distinct challenge for the Lincolnville Lynx as they started their playoff season on Monday, October 15th on the Lincolnville pitch, but the LC eleven prevailed nonetheless by a score of 5 to 0. The scoring started at the 2:21 mark when right midfielder Jaden Johnson intercepted a Mariners’ pass in the South Bristol end, drove towards the corner and sent in an accurate pass to left midfielder Griffin Dubrow. Dubrow controlled the ball and then sent a heel pass into to striker Jordan Peasley that Peasley was able to field on the fly as he penetrated into the box past the defense and finished nicely to his right past the keeper. Number two came one minute and 31 seconds later after a hands ball call just outside of right side of the Mariners’ box. midfielder Mason Clark teed it up and sent it arching in over everyone to find the back of the net. Dubrow struck again at 9:17 after receiving a pass from midfielder Bailey Curtis. He drove in from the left to pointblank range and slid it deftly past the keeper. It was then Clark’s turn again, also unassisted as he stole a ball in the box, dribbled by his coverage, and slammed it home.
The second half featured a single goal by keeper Aiden Aselton, out of the nets and playing defensive midfielder. After spending ten minutes sending excellent passes to his teammates, he stole the ball near the South Bristol box with 43:24 gone, drove through the middle, and sent a fine shot in for the finish. Midfielder Gwen Hustus had been denied a goal after a fine drive by an impressive save by the Mariners’ keeper just a few minutes earlier. Three scoreless minutes later, the referees mercifully decided to call the match, undoubtedly a relief for all the wet and bedraggled players, fans, and coaches.
[Oct 10 2018] Lynx comeback to defeat Jefferson
It was a desultory start but a bang-up finish as Lincolnville eleven came alive in the second half to defeat a scrappy booters from Jefferson 4 to 1 on Wednesday, October 10th at LCS. The Lynx were very slow to get going and were dominated by the opposition for much of the first half including allowing Jefferson to score the first goal at the 16:15 mark on a breakthrough down the left. Keeper Aiden Aselton made a nice charge out to try to force a mistake, but the Jefferson forward coolly slotted the ball home. The game continued with Jefferson holding a distinct advantage until the Lynx finally sent one home with a minute-and-a-half left to play in the half when midfielder Canyon Palise sent a ball into the Jefferson box. A defender controlled it but lost it to winger Jaden Johnson who powered it in to tie the game.
The second half played much differently as the Lincolnville repeatedly surged into their offensive zone and continuously denied Jefferson any strong tries on the LCS net. The Lynx took the lead for good at 45:44 after an intensive siege of the Jefferson net. The end came when defensive midfielder Mason Clark sent a ball forward from the left and bounced it off a defender to midfielder Griffin Dubrow. Dubrow gained control and turned the ball away from the net to his left and finished with a fine shot to the left side of the goal. The next tally came a mere minute-and-a-half later when Johnson found striker Jordan Peasley in the middle of the box in a crowd. Peasley alertly sent the ball through the defense to complete the play. Finally, Jefferson was called for pushing striker Mikayla Talbot just outside the top of the box a few yards left of the middle. Dubrow calmly teed the ball up and sent it over the defensive wall into the top of the net for the finish.
As usual, Aselton spent a busy day in the nets for LCS primarily picking off long feeds from Jefferson. He was solidly supported by defenders Lincoln Outerbridge, Avery Luft, Roo Boetsch, and Liliana Palise. In addition, midfielder Kara Andrews and defensive midfielders Bailey Curtis and Clark did a good job controlling the middle of the field for the Lynx.
[Oct 03 2018] Good effort, disappointing result at Hope
Despite playing one of their better games of the season, the Lincolnville Lynx ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard losing 1 to 0 to the Hawks of Hope on a cool Wednesday, October 3rd, at Hope. The first half played mostly evenly. Both teams started rather tentatively, but then the Hawks staged an impressive surge during which they scored the only goal of the game just after eight minutes gone. An excellent drive by a Hope midfielder drew the LCS defense to him allowing him to slide a short pass to a wide open forward next to the empty back half of the Lynx’s net. LCS revived soon after that and dominated the last part of the first half.
The second half went mostly the Lynx’s way as they kept the ball in the Hawks’ end for the better part of the half. The Hawks managed several drives, but for the most part were forced on defense for the half. The Lynx got their fans to their feet with multiple drives but just were unable to finish any of their drives. Nonetheless, they deserve significant credit for not giving up and continuing to dominate the half until the whistle put an end to the game.
[Sep 26 2018] Lincolnville goes down against Camden 6
It was a disappointing end to the day for the Lincolnville booters as they conceded a win to the hustling, talented Camden 6th grade team 4 to 0 on September 26th at the LCS pitch. The Lynx were definitely off their usual form, and the Schooners took full advantage to outplay the LCS booters. Aiden Aselton made a number of fine saves in the net, and there were at least five really dangerous tries from the Lincolnville offense, but the Camden team simply was too much for the LCS elven to overcome. The Lynx will be working to get back on the winning side on Monday, October 1st, against Islesboro at Lincolnville.
[Sep 24 2018] Lincolnville gets back on track versus Blue Devils
It was a definite goal festival as the home team Bristol and visiting Lincolnville combined for 10 goals on Monday the 24th but with the LCS Lynx ultimately prevailing 6 to 4 on a brisk, sunny September day. The scoring started early when LCS striker Griffin Dubrow drove the left side and slid s quick pass into winger Jordan Peasley who cannoned the ball past the keeper to the far post to rack up the tally at the 1:14 mark. Another minute and 15 seconds later, it was almost an exact repeat with Dubrow again slipping the ball into Peasley who again beat the Bristol keeper to the far post. The one thing that you can count on when playing the Blue Devils is that they will never give up, and they came back a mere 45 seconds later to score on a shot from 25 yards out that sailed over the defense and the keeper. The Lynx struck back at 6:05 when Dubrow again sent in a feed to midfielder Kara Andrews who settled the ball nicely, took a quick dribble to her left to improve her view of the net and then sent the ball through a crowd for her finish. LCS padded their lead at 11:06 when Andrews fed Peasley who finished nicely to complete his hat trick for the afternoon.
Bristol opened the scoring in the second half with a smooth give and go that broke through the LCS defense, but Lincolnville struck back soon thereafter when Peasley sent the ball into striker Aidan Witholt-Martin who finished from pointblank range. Bristol retaliated quickly off the kickoff with a shot from midfield on the 90-yard field that soared over everybody for the score. The LCS defense started the team’s last scoring drive with a good clear up field. The offense moved the ball nicely to winger Jaden Johnson on the right who sent a lovely through pass across the field behind the Blue Devils’ defense to a breaking Peasley coming in from the left who nicely controlled the pass, dribbled coolly in to close range and slid the ball past the keeper’s right side for his fourth goal of the game. Bristol finished off the scoring with a one last long-range kick that found the nets.
[Sep 19 2018] LCS shows its grit at Appleton
It was an exciting afternoon on the small Appleton pitch as two skilled teams battled their way to a scoreless tie on Wednesday, September 19th. The Lynx, although somewhat hampered by the size of the field, still played a fine game, with the defense doing an excellent job of containing the Wildcats’ long ball offense while the Lynx’s ball movement offense generated a number of dangerous tries. While the Appleton booters held a small possession advantage in the first half, the Lynx rebounded well, and the second half played just about even. The combination of Griffin Dubrow, Jordan Peasley, and Jaden Johnson put in an extraordinarily strong effort in the front line, supported by the assertive midfield play of Kara Andrews, Bailey Curtis, and Mikayla Talbot with Bryce Curtis, Liliana Palise, and Canyon Palise providing critical minutes off the bench. On the defense, Lincoln Outerbridge backstopped everything in his sweeper role, supported by Roo Boetsch and Nathan Oxley in the wing defensive slots, and a hustling Avery Luft aggressively patrolling in front in the stopper position. After a string of less stressful games, Aiden Aselton, in goal for LCS, really had his hands full confronting the swarming Appleton forwards, and he rose brilliantly to the occasion literally keeping the Lynx in the game. In fact, it was the team consensus that Aselton was the outstanding player of the game, certainly a well-deserved accolade as his quickness in the net and in patrolling his box cut off many Wildcat drives before they could fully develop. Lincolnville will be meeting the only remaining undefeated, untied team in the league this Friday at Camden at 3:45 pm.
[Sep 17 2018] LCS holds on to win a tight one against Vinalhaven
The LCS eleven pulled out a tense victory over the Vinalhaven Vikings on a warm afternoon on the Lincolnville pitch Monday, September 17th, by a score of 3 to 1. The Lynx offense, perhaps hampered by the heat, took almost 12 minutes and several previous tries before finally racking up a score when winger Griffin Dubrow ran the left side of the field to beat the defense and then dribbled deftly past the keeper before sliding the ball into an open net. The rest of the half played out with no further scores even though Lincolnville had a distinct possession advantage. The Vikings hung tough, however, fortified by a strong effort by their keeper whose quick hands and aggressive patrolling of his box kept the LCS offense at bay.
Vinalhaven came out strongly in the second half, but LCS scored first nonetheless at the 39:49 mark after a hands ball call on the Vikings’ defense about 10 yards outside of the box to the left of the vertical midfield line. Dubrow lined up his shot and lofted a fine try over the defense that the keeper was just able to brush with his fingertips but not enough to deflect it out of the net. It took another five tense minutes with several dangerous Vinalhaven thrusts upfield before the Lynx struck again. The LCS defense sent a strong clear up to three-quarters field which was corralled by Dubrow once again. He took a quick dribble to freeze the defense before bouncing a pass off a defender to striker Jordan Peasley who adroitly slid his shot by the charging keeper to his right. There is no question that the score would have been more lopsided had it not been for the skillful play of the Vinalhaven keeper and the support of his defensive squad, and they have much to be proud of given the quality of the effort they put forth.
[Sep 14 2018] Lynx add another to the win column!
Both teams had to deal with somewhat sultry conditions as the Lynx of Lincolnville met and prevailed over the Dragons of St. George by a score of 6 to 0 on Friday, September 14th. Starting strongly, the Lynx found the net for the first time with 3:03 gone when winger Griffin Dubrow stole a ball form a Dragon defender and dribbled smoothly to his right to lose his coverage before slamming the ball back across the goal mouth for the tally. The Dragons survived a penalty kick situation just over one minute later, but then striker Jordan Peasley also stole the ball from a St. George midfielder just past the midfield circle in the Dragon’s end, drove past the Dragon’s midfield line to near the top of the box before unleashing a strong shot that caromed into the nets off of the keeper’s outstretched hands. Dubrow followed that up at 7:13 after midfielder Mason Clark passed a ball in from the left side. Dubrow charged the ball and punched it in before the keeper could react. The scoring for the half ended with 22:05 gone when winger Mateo LaChance picked up a loose ball in front of the net and fired home from pointblank range.
One has to give the Dragons credit for rallying during the second half to hold the Lynx to a single goal. That came at the 43:10 mark when midfielder Kara Andrews sent a pretty corner kick into the middle which midfielder Canyon Palise alertly redirected into the net near the near post. Keepers Aiden Aselton, Mikayla Talbot, and Peasley shared the nets to preserve the shutout, LCS’s second straight.
It was a dominating performance for Lincolnville overall. Lincoln Outerbridge at sweeper put in his usual daunting defensive display, joined by Avery Luft at stopper, and Nathan Oxley and Roo Beotsch at wing defense. Jaden Johnson played her typically quick aggressive game at winger, and Bailey Curtis put in valuable minutes in the defensive line as well. LCS will continue its effort to claim a fourth straight championship on Monday, September 17th, at Lincolnville against the Vinalhaven Vikings.
[Sep 12 2018] Lynx defeat Mariners
LCS racked up another victory against a developing South Bristol team by a score of 9 to 0 at South Bristol on Wednesday, September 12th. It was a rough first half for the South Bristol eleven with the Lynx jumping out to a lead with only 42 seconds gone when winger Griffin Dubrow intercepted a throw by the keeper and quickly converted it into a shot that sailed into the net. That was followed 16 seconds later when midfielder Kara Andrews corralled a loose ball after Dubrow bounced a pass off of a Mariners player and immediately hammered it past the keeper. There was a lull for almost seven minutes before Andrews sent in a corner from the right that winger Victoria Sparks deflected to striker Mikayla Talbot who alertly redirected it into the nets. At the 16:09 mark, winger Liliana Palise sent a smooth pass into striker Roo Boetsch who fired home for the fourth tally. The next goal was an own goal in the midst of a crowd that occurred when a Mariner defender tipped the ball into their own net. Palise added an unassisted goal to her previous assist at 24:19, followed by the last goal of the half at 28:00, the second of the game for Boetsch.
The second half found things looking up for the Mariners as they only allowed two for the entire half. Both were scored by Colin Brandy, the first unassisted at 49:33, and the second off a pass by Jackson Strout with only eight minutes left in the game. It was another strong showing by the Lincolnville booters, but due credit must be given the South Bristol squad which kept on pushing throughout the entire game. Recording the shutout for the Lynx were keepers Aiden Aselton, Mason Clark, Althea Dayhoof, and Palise, making her debut in goal.
[Sep 11 2018] LCS eleven start with a win
The Lincolnville eleven started off this year’s championship defense with a resounding win—7-1—on Monday, September 10th, at Nobleboro on an unseasonably cool yet comfortable day. The Lynx got off to a quick start when winger Jaden Johnson started the scoring with 2:50 gone by intercepting a Lions’ goal kick, taking a quick dribble to set up her shot, and finishing strongly past the charging keeper to the back side of the net. A minute later, it was Johnson starting off another drive by running the right side and passing to winger Griffin Dubrow who had moved to the middle of the Nobleboro box. Dubrow calmly redirected the ball on net, but the keeper made a nice deflecting save. Striker Jordan Peasley promptly charged the rebound and drilled it into the open side of the goal. Things slowed down a touch at that point until the 7:19 mark, when Johnson once again sent a pass to Peasley on the right who quickly shuttled it into Dubrow in the middle. Dubrow hammered a quick shot to the far post to complete the scoring play. A minute-and-a-half after that, midfielder Bailey Curtis passed the ball into Dubrow on the left side who promptly dazzled the defense with a well-executed move to open space and then drilled the ball just inside the near post. Nobleboro fought back and late in the half with four minutes left to play, they took advantage of an LCS defensive breakdown to get one back so that the half ended with a 4-1 score.
The second half started more evenly than did the first, and it took LCS until the 37:47 mark to ring up another tally. Curtis once again initiated the play with a pass into Peasley in the middle who made a skillful move to his left to lose his coverage and then beat the keeper with a shot angled to the far post. Midfielder Kara Andrews got on the scoreboard six minutes later after a direct free kick was awarded to LCS near the Lions’ box. Andrews lined up her shot and lofted it past the keeper. The scoring for the game finally ended at 43:31 when Dubrow, now playing at midfield, passed to winger Colin Brandy who quickly moved the ball on to striker Mikayla Talbot who immediately converted it.
Overall the game was a promising start to the season for the Lynx who showed a lot of poise while moving the ball very effectively. The young Lions team turned out to be a very game opponent who kept on coming despite the score deficit which bodes well for their future as they gain experience.
