Yesterday the MJHS Football Team travelled to Dexter and improved to 3-0 on the season. The offense struck first and was extremely efficient, scoring on every possession in the first half en route to a 34-7 victory. They were led by great blocking from Eric Ayotte, Ethan Pelkey, Reed McIntyre, Cooper Jordan, and Maddox Arthers. A balanced running attack was led by Bennett Libbey, Bennett Harper who had a rushing touchdown, Landon Krawietz, who also had a rushing touchdown, and Ryan Thibodeau's 2 offensive touchdowns. Jordan also converted 2 PAT kicks to round out the scoring. Defensively the Bobcats played very well, stopping Dexter on several 4th down plays and forcing them to punt on 4th and long. The defense was led by Ethan Pelkey, Tyler Smith, Gabe Fiske, Krawietz and Thibodeau who scored a TD on a scoop and run. GO BOBCATS!

The MJHS Football Team played their home opener against a tough Bucksport team. The Bobcats gained momentum early and never looked back, coming out with a 20-0 win to improve to 2 and 0. The offense was efficient all night with a balanced attack led by Ryan Thibodeau, who had 2 touchdown runs and a conversion, Quarterback Wyatt Keegan, Cam Thompson, who ran a kick back for a touchdown, and Ashton Dill, who scored on a conversion. The defense was once again stifling all game, flying to the ball and tackling well in space. The secondary stepped up and made plays consistently and was led by Gabe Fiske, Tyler Smith, and Ryan Thibodeau. Cooper Jordan, Eric Ayotte, Maddox Arthers, Gabe Lazore and Trent Lyons all pitched in defensively as well. Great team win Bobcats! GO BOBCATS!
The boys soccer team endured a hard fought loss to Sedemocha Tuesday night 2-0. The Bobcats held Sedomocha scoreless until about 16 minutes left to go in the game when they scored two goals back to back. London Landry played an amazing game in the goal, considering the wet and rainy conditions, stopping two penalty kicks and countless other shot attempts. A great defensive effort was led by Blake Cloukey, Phillip Bryant, Jakobe Hodsdon, and Brady Cox. Our offense showed some great improvement working the ball up the field displaying some great through passes to set our striker up for a shot attempt. The Bobcats only had one sub for this game so a majority of the players never got a break but they never stopped hustling. They left it all on the field and are ready for round 2 with Sedomocha at home! GO BOBCATS!
The girls soccer team defeated Sedomocha last night 5 to 3 for their first win of the season. Natalie Cloukey opened up the scoring by firing one off her left foot to the corner of the net off a Kalista Lazo cross. Rylee Cyr, Dylanie Landry, Lazo and NCloukey all worked together to create many scoring opportunities by continuously passing and crossing the ball. Vanessa Morse scored next with a deep and hard shot to the right upper corner to make it 2-0. Even with the opponent’s strong 5 forward line, defenders Bella Kronholm, Ryleigh Springer, Bree Skidmore, Gwen Melvin and Izzy Morin in goal, the Bobcats were able to stop their forwards and keep the score in our favor for most of the first half. Cloukey scored again off a rebound in front of the goal to put the Bobcats in the lead. Sedomocha put in a quick goal before the half ended and the game was 3 to 1 at halftime. During the second half, Hope Grey, Tiawna Rich and Lazo stepped up their defensive efforts and helped stop the opponent's runs. Morse scored again with a deep shot outside the 18 yard line. Sedomocha snuck in two quick goals to tie up the game. Morse scored again to complete the hat trick off a perfectly placed corner kick that deflected off a defender to bring the score to 5 to 3. The girls were able to hold onto the win. GO BOBCATS!

The girls soccer team traveled to Warsaw middle school on Friday and played a hard-fought game. The first half the girls dominated the game with consistent passing and possession of the ball which was a great improvement from the first game of the season. Vanessa Morse scored first for the Bobcats off a pass from Rylee Cyr. Rylee Cyr then scored before halftime assisted by Natalie Cloukey. Teamwork by Tiawna Rich, Bella Kronholm, Dylanie Landry and Ryleigh Springer helped to propel the ball forward to the offensive players to score. Vanessa Morse opened up the scoring in the second half after winning the ball off the opponents goal kick to score the teams third goal. Elsie Fullerton, Khloe Maris and Hope Gray did a great job covering the midfield and Leah Stevens helped to aid the defensive line. The game ended in a tie when the opposing team sent a deep kick in from a distance out with only 1 minute remaining. The girls showed incredible improvement and should be proud of their efforts.

There has been a question about MJHS 4th graders being able to ride busses to and from school, and we want to clarify the procedure regarding student transportation. Fourth graders are not considered walkers unless they are in very close proximity to the school and there is agreement with the parents that they may walk.
