Maranacook tops Orono to repeat as Class C boys soccer champion

PORTLAND, Maine — The Maranacook of Readfield boys soccer players prepared for Saturday’s Class C state championship match with a target on their backs.


Each of the Black Bears’ black warm-up shirts featured a yellow circular target, but Eastern Maine champion Orono — like 17 earlier opponents this fall — were unable to hit it.

Matt Dubois and Max McQuillen provided a goal in each half while Kent Mohlar controlled the midfield as Maranacook won its second straight state title with a 2-0 victory over the Red Riots at Deering High School’s Memorial Field.

“This is the goal from the beginning of the year,” said Mohlar, a junior midfielder who had a hand in both goals. “This is what you think about from Day 1 of last year. It’s hard to explain.”

The victory also capped off a second straight undefeated season for coach Don Beckwith’s club, 18-0 this fall and 34-0-2 over the last two years.

Orono, making its first appearance in a state final since 1992, finished 15-3.

“They have a complete understanding of the sport and playing together,” Orono coach Waldo Caballero said of Maranacook. “They move to the empty spaces, they anticipate well and they make the passes correctly into the empty spaces rather than just to the person.

“It was a little physical for us, but our conference is not that physical so it was a different game for us.”

Maranacook dominated the first 38 minutes of the first half and grabbed a 1-0 lead when DuBois converted in transition with Mohlar with 11:50 left in the period. Continue reading
