The Brewer Witches football team was back on the field Tuesday morning as the squad gets ready to make another run at a regional title.

A year ago the Witches came up short against Brunswick in the Class B North Regional final by a score of 49-0.  It was a bittersweet end for Brewer who had previously beat the North Champions during the regular season back in October of that year.

Being so close to bringing some hardware back to the city has created some motivation for the team at the practice field in mid-August however.

“Anytime you get to a regional championship, you always want more.  Really the goal for us is to progress every single week and get better as a team.  I think if we do that we can put ourselves in a great position to get there,” said Head Coach Nick Arthers after the Tuesday morning session.

The team participated in conditioning drills on the second day of the start to the fall sports calendar.  Some of the conditioning drills team races to heighten the team’s competitive spirit.

“It’s been great, the weather’s been nice, it hasn’t been too warm.  The kids have been progressing really well,” said Arthers.  “They are flying around they did a phenomenal job this off-season in the weight room and it’s really showing so far in the first couple practices.”

Brewer will have a controlled scrimmage on Monday afternoon at Doyle Field at 4 p.m. and will then face Bangor in a pre-season match-up on Friday night before the start of the regulars season the next week.
