Co-Ed: Lincolnville 6, Nobleboro 1
(By Ben Edes)

The Lynx of Lincolnville, setting out to defend a championship title for the second fall in a row, got started with a bang with a win over Nobleboro on Monday, Sept. 11, on a beautiful sunny day in Lincolnville. Despite a seemingly lopsided score of 6 to 1, a lot of the game was quite competitive with a Nobleboro squad that is improving every year putting in a solid effort against a strong LCS eleven.

The first 10 minutes were scoreless, although the Lynx did have a possession advantage. Then at the 10.21 mark, midfielder Kara Andrews sent a strong kick to open space down the left side of the field which winger Jackson Bernier ran down, beat a following defender, and then sent a kick inside the near post that caromed off of the keeper’s hands for the tally.

Nobleboro came back and received a free kick with 16 minutes gone about eight yards outside of the LCS box. A fine shot ensued, but LCS keeper Griffin Dubrow made a fine diving save to push the ball around the post.

It took another five minutes before midfielder Jack Fishman found striker Matt Kremin with a corner kick that Kremin promptly converted into a score. A minute later, Fishman stole the ball from a Lions player and drove in hard on the right side of the goal to set up a point blank shot that the keeper had no chance of reaching. The balance of the half was played reasonably evenly.

The second half started with a fine drive by the Nobleboro eleven at the 33 minute mark that was finished by a quick dash on the right side of the goal, but Kremin, now playing in goal, made a nice diving save to maintain the shutout.

LCS struck back with 42 minutes played when Nobleboro committed an infraction about halfway into their defensive end. Fishman set up the free kick and sent a nice fed to Bernier who was open in the box just to the left of the center of the goal. Bernier one touched it with the outside of his right foot to the far post to cleanly beat the keeper who was following the line of the original kick.

A mere four minutes later, Fishman sent another assist to Dubrow — now playing striker — which Dubrow quickly converted for the tally. LCS closed out its scoring with only five minutes left with a punt by keeper Kremin which Dubrow corralled and turned into a scorching shot to beat the keeper again.

Once again, a stretch of fairly even play ensued until the game Nobleboro squad, who never once gave up, took advantage of a defensive error to break in alone on Kremin and beat him with a well placed shot at the 59 minute mark.

In addition to the strong offensive punch provided by LCS’s forwards and midfielders, the Lynx defense, consisting of wing Ds Lili Clement and Lincoln Outerbridge, stopper John Pessara, and Emmit Dayhoof, did a superb job all game long. They skillfully worked their defensive rotation which allowed them to turn aside many a Nobleboro drive without harm and transitioned the ball to the offensive unit well when needed.

Lincolnville will continue its title defense against St. George in St. George this Friday, Sept. 15.
