first_img Latest posts by Hugh Bowden (see all) ELLSWORTH — After three varsity seasons, the Ellsworth Eagle football team has yet to put a win in the scorebook.But as far as Ellsworth coach Duane Crawford is concerned, “each time the players stepped on the field they were victorious.”The Eagles opened the season with a high degree of optimism. But what appeared to be a strong squad at the beginning, with large offensive and defensive lines, only played the opening game against MDI together.“From that point on,” said Crawford, seven starters were out by the end of our third game for various reasons.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThat required moving several players to positions that were new to them.Austin Smith, a 150-pound defensive back, was converted to an offensive guard.Michael York moved from fullback to tight end for two games, then missed the balance of the season with a knee injury.Damien Carter, a freshman running back, stepped in at tackle for a couple of games.James McAlpine moved from his usual tight end position to guard and tackle.Sophomore guard/tackle Scott Firley played wherever he was needed on both the offensive and defensive lines.Despite that adversity, said Crawford, the team played better than last year and several games were not decided until the third or fourth quarter.“In previous seasons, in most of our games we were playing JV squads by the second half,” he said. “This year, we played three games in which varsity opponents played through all four quarters, and in one game, we were leading 8-6 at the end of the first quarter, which was a first.”Next year will be the first season in which the full offensive backfield likely will be intact for two years in a row.The Eagles lose just three seniors — Robert Cooper, Calob Chipman and Brock Frye.This season, Ellsworth’s wing-T offense generated more than 1,600 yards with running back Devin Wright leading the way, averaging 4.4 yards on 111 carries.Connor Petros averaged 5.1 yards on 70 carries, and York averaged 4.2 yards on 39 carries in just four games.Quarterback Jacob Shorey completed 23 passes for just under 300 yards, 268 of them to Wally Rumill.Defensive returnees will include Wright, who led the team with 24 solo tackles and 15 assists, along with Rumill, Tyler Hardwick and Shorey.“Building a football program from the ground up is a long process,” said Crawford. “But these student athletes remained positive the entire season, worked hard despite overwhelming odds and never quit. They continue to lay the foundation for the program.” Is this the kind of government we deserve? – July 10, 2017 Hugh BowdenExecutive EditorHugh writes editorials, covers Hancock County sports and helps out where needed in The American’s editorial department.

first_img(REUTERS) – Switzerland won their third Hopman Cup on Saturday as Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic beat Germany’s Alexander Zverev and Angelique Kerber 4-3(3) 4-2 in the deciding mixed doubles to secure a 2-1 victory in the final at the Perth Arena.It was Federer’s second Hopman Cup triumph after victory in 2001 alongside then world number one Martina Hingis.“She (Hingis) had a great career and to have that in a small country like Switzerland is very rare,” world number two Federer said after his country’s latest triumph.“It made me also believe with hard work and dedication you get really far because I didn’t believe that much at that point when I was younger, I thought it was more all talent.”Federer had earlier roared back from a set down to beat Zverev 6-7(4) 6-0 6-2 and give the Swiss a 1-0 lead.Unbeaten in three singles matches in the tournament before the final as he prepares to defend his Australian Open title later this month, the 19-time grand slam champion failed to wrap up the first set despite hitting 20 winners.However, it was only a matter of time before the 36-year-old Federer found his groove as he raced to win the second set 6-0 before sealing victory in the decider with a drop shot.“I was trying to play as aggressively as possible. I‘m maybe better when we’re closer together,” said Federer.“The court plays fast, so it helps if you approach (the net) and do it the right way. It was working out well, so I thought I’d keep going until I had to fix it. That never happened, so I was able to cruise all the way through.”The tie went to a mixed doubles decider after Kerber continued her strong start to the campaign under new coach Wim Fissette by beating Bencic 6-4 6-1 to level the score at 1-1.World number four Zverev finished with one singles win from four matches in a patchy preparation ahead of the year’s first grand slam at Melbourne Park starting on Jan. 15.last_img read more

first_imgMore than 70 Liberian fishermen and other residents’ structures situated at the Atlantic Ocean Harper, Cape Palmas, Maryland County,  were recently rendered homeless as a result of extensive sea erosion.Sadly, the homeless and destitute Liberians and foreign residents have taken refuge with relatives and friends at their crowded homes in Harper.Consequently, the homeless sea erosion victims and businesspeople have sounded urgent SOS appeals to the Liberian Government, the Red Cross, humanitarian groups, charitable organizations, Liberians, foreign-based Liberian companies, corporations at home and abroad for material and financial assistance.The sea erosion also extensively damaged and destroyed makeshift shelters and other houses in Maryland County.According to some residents and prominent citizens of Harper City, many complaints and appeals have made and communicated to the relevant agencies and ministries of the Liberian Government and other key stakeholders in the country.The frustrated and discouraged residents and businesspeople specifically sounded their appeals to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and major players as well as support partners in the environmental sectors to help curb the sea erosion menace.“Our situation has indeed become grave and our challenges are gradually sliding into a perpetual nightmare,” Mrs. Marvoline Williams asserted.Also owing to the extensive and continuous sea erosion, fear has gripped several Liberian and foreign small business owners whose  entities are situated not far from the crisis prone Harper City beaches.Madam Elizabeth Nimely Greene told the Daily Observer early this week that her four-bed room house was completely destroyed and all personal effects were swallowed by the sea water.“We are now living in destitution and our socio-economic conditions continue to deteriorate at very fast pace,” Madam Greene cried out.A provision shop operator in Harper City, Mrs. Greene noted that serious efforts should be stepped up now in order to prevent further damage and destructionby Harper’s sea erosion.For his part, businesswoman Beatrice Cooper Baker pointed out that urgent steps should be taken now by all stakeholders in the environmental sector to halt the current sea erosion at the port city of Harper in Maryland County.Mrs. Baker said the situation of the Harper’s sea erosion is indeed critical to most business entities and most especially the three fishing communities in Maryland County.“In my view, I think God is the first person for us to turn to and second group to look up is the United Nations that could urgently channel the needed funds to help stop the sea erosion in Harper,” Mrs. Baker concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
