[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.
