CROSS-COUNTRY

This is exactly what Bill Reilly hopes to see in his runners as the “big meets” — conference, regionals and states — approach.

Last Friday’s trip to Freeport proved quite noteworthy for the Raiders.

One, although her team has been decimated by the flu, Anna Lastra notched her first varsity win with a run of 20 minutes, 46.7 seconds, beating Freeport’s Elly Bengtsson (20:53.0) on her home turf.

Fryeburg failed to figure in the team scoring due to the lack of five finishers.

Two, Patrick Carty broke the 17-minute mark, placing second in 16:56.2 behind Freeport’s Chandler Vincent, 16:44.4.

Third, Eric Hannes managed his race perfectly, possessing enough kick left down the stretch to outsprint Eric Brobst of Freeport (18:09.0 to 18:09.5) to help the Raiders nail down the meet victory, one point better than the Falcons, 40-41.

“The boys had a great race with a lot of personal records,” Coach Reilly said. “Anna also had a PR with a first varsity win against a strong group of girls.”

For the FA boys:

5. TJ Rose, 17:49.1

8. Eric Hannes, 18:09.0

10. Jonathan Burk, 18:28.0

GIRLS’ SOCCER

As the soccer regular season heads down the home stretch, the Raiders could be a dark horse to make the playoffs.

The Raiders started making some noise with a big 2-0 victory over Poland last week. Coach John Atwood is starting to see his club come together.

Ori Inirio scored the opening goal with five minutes left in the first half and Sydney Charles made six saves to record the shutout as the Raiders (3-3-2) downed the Knights (4-4) at Fryeburg.

Esme Hernandez made it 2-0 with 9:43 remaining.

Erin Brewer made five saves for Poland.

Next: The Raiders travel to Sacopee Valley on Friday for a 6 p.m. game, then continue the road swing with a stop at Cape Elizabeth on Monday at 6 p.m. and on Wednesday at Lake Region at 7 p.m.

BOYS’ SOCCER

The Raiders (3-4-1) had a chance to move up in the Heal Ratings, but fell just short to undefeated North Yarmouth Academy 3-2. Inigo Ortiz scored from Jordan Kruguer just before halftime and Gabe Perry converted a penalty kick with 10 minutes left for the Raiders.

Blaine Andreoli stopped two shots for Fryeburg.

Next: The Raiders host Sacopee Valley on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and Cape on Monday at 3 p.m. Then, FA travels Wednesday to Lake Region for a 5 p.m. game.
