The Medomak Valley softball team hosted Oceanside Wednesday, but because of the rain this week the teams played on the middle school field as that as the one that Matt Lash and his crew could get ready for game time.
"Want to acknowledge Mr. Matt Lash and his people today for their hard work on his Middle School Softball Field," said Oceanside manager Rusty Worcester. "After all this rain he got that field in playing condition and it was remarkable."
The Medomak Valley athletic director Matt Lash and his crew of people, including Ryan McNelley and George Field worked for hours to try and get two field ready for game time at 4 pm Wednesday. Remarkably they managed to get the baseball field at the high school ready and the middle school field for softball.

I was sitting on a side street in Bangor the other day by the Civic Center waiting to get to Main Street while a trailer truck was backing into the new Cross Insurance Center. The name on the trailer told me that this was not going to be good. I sat patiently for a while but knew after the first attempt that this was going to be a long process. Driving a truck down the highway is a huge responsibility and requires a certain amount of skill.
