Eastern Class B: #3 Gardiner Tigers at #1 Leavitt Hornets, Saturday 4 PM
Leavitt has not lost a game since 2008, and beat Gardiner earlier this season 34-13. Led by quarterback Jordan Hersom and running back Jake Ouellette, and are the defending Class B State champs. Gardiner is led by running back Alonzo Connor, who had 30 carries and 173 yards in the previous meeting between the two teams. Gardiner beat Hampden 28-25 to get to this point, and Leavitt beat Belfast 31-8. Can Gardiner pull a rabbit out of their hats Saturday afternoon, or will the Hornets sting prove to be too much to overcome?
Western Class B: #2 Wells Warriors at #1 Mountain Valley, Saturday at 12:30 PM
Wells travels to the Texas of Western Maine, Rumford, to take on undefeated Mountain valley. Quarterback Paul McDonough threw over 500 yards with 7 touchdown's this season, while the running attack is led by Chad Witten, Michael Moats-Carpenter, and Louis DiTomasso, who combined for over 1400 yards rushing this year. Wells beat the defending state champs Cape Elizabeth 47-7 to get the regional final.
Mountain Valley is undefeated, and wears opponents down with a tough defense. Running back Taylor Bradley transferred from Class A Skowhegan to give the offense a new dimension. They spent the season developing a new offensive line, as many of their starters graduated. These teams met in September, and the Falcons beats Wells that day 14-6.The Falcons beat Falmouth 43-6 last week to get here. Can the Warriors overcome the Falcons this week, or will the long road trip and hostile environment be too much for Wells?
