FIELD HOCKEY

To start the season, the Raiders have been on both ends of the goose egg.

In the opener, FA was blanked 5-0 by Falmouth as Mikey Richards scored twice as the Yachtsmen led 4-0 at halftime. Fryeburg bounced back Monday at home with a 4-0 victory over Gray-New Gloucester.  McKenzie Hill scored two of her three goals in the first half as the Raiders (1-1) raced to a 3-0 halftime lead and held off the Patriots (0-2). Emily Davidson also scored for Fryeburg.

Next: The Raiders travel to Cape Elizabeth on Friday (5:30) and host Lake Region on Tuesday (3:30).

GIRLS’ SOCCER

Izzy Hodgman-Burns provided the offensive spark the Raiders needed Tuesday, scoring four goals to lead FA to a 5-2 victory over Old Orchard Beach. The win evened the Raiders’ record at 1-1.

Julia Quinn notched the other FA goal. The Raiders received strong play from Orie Igno, Mackenzie Buzzell and Caylin Delaney, reported Coach John Atwood.

In the season opener last Saturday night, the Raiders blanked Greely over the first half, but the Rangers broke the stalemate with a goal at the 17:50 point en route to a 2-0 victory. Outstanding defense was turned in by McKenna Gerchman, Ali Fraze, Lexi L’Heureux-Carland and Sarah Welch, Sydney Charles had 17 saves.

Next: The Raiders host Waynflete Monday at 3:30 p.m.

FOOTBALL

Kennebunk rejoined Class B with a bang Saturday.

The Rams erased an early 6-0 Raider lead by unleashing a potent triple option attack out of shotgun formation en route to a 49-20 rout.

Fryeburg started well as quarterback Ryan Gullikson connected with Ryan Buzzell on two pass plays, including a 31-yard catch and run giving the Raiders a 6-0 lead.

But, it didn’t take the Rams long to take control. Running back Nicco DeLorenzo (6 carries, 107 yards, two touchdowns) sparked Kennebunk with a 61-yard TD romp. Kennebunk took a 12-6 lead when quarterback Nick Emmons scoring from 5 yards out to complete a 54-yard drive.

Despite a strong punt sailing deep into Ram territory, the Raiders were stung by Tyler Elkington returned the kick 93 yards for a score.

Momentum was on the Rams’ side. Kennebunk cashed in on a Raider fumble as Emmons fired a ball over the middle, caught by receiver Jesse Shields who turned it into a 54-yard TD run. The Rams built a 35-6 halftime lead when DeLorenzo scored from 10 yards out.

At least for one Saturday, the move from Class A to B was a good one for Kennebunk, which won its first season opener since 2006.

Next: The Raiders host Greely this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The Rangers are coming off a 41-16 home loss to Marshwood.
