Five Vie For HS Athlete Of The Week [VOTE]
It’s time for you to help us decide again who should be the winner of this week’s McDonald’s High School Athlete of the Week. We have five great weekly performances this week for you to choose from.
Carter Tolmasoff of Bucksport High School moved from the wide receiver position to the backfield and had a huge game for the Golden Bucks in the team’s 49-6 semifinal win over Mattanawcook Academy this past Friday night. Filling in for RB Lucas Wardwell, Tolmasoff had 130 yards on the ground, including three rushing touchdowns in the contest. He also caught six passes for 98 yards and scored a receiving TD too. With the four scores he piled up in the win in the semifinal, Tolmasoff now has 12 total on the season. Bucksport will face Foxcroft on Friday night in the Class D North final.
Houlton’s senior Kolleen Bouchard had a big final season on the pitch for the Shiretowners, capped off with the lone goal scored in the girls’ soccer Class C title game in Hampden over the weekend. Bouchard notched the goal with just over 28 minutes remaining, and the score would hold at 1-0 for a Houlton win over Madison. On the year Bouchard had 37 goals for the Shires, that won their first title in 30 years.
Pedro Matos was a big part of the MCI Huskies upset win versus Winslow in the Class C North semifinal this past Saturday. Matos in the contest scored three different times for the Huskies and totaled 116 yards of total offense as MCI hung on to best Winslow by a score of 43-42. MCI will now face MDI in the Class C North region final on Saturday night.
Bangor Christian won the Class D state title in the boys’ soccer ranks on Saturday by a score of 1-0 over Richmond. Goalie Austin Keib for the Patriots did not allow a goal in four playoff games, including five saves in the region final and 11 in the state title game. The goal by Tyler Lehman against Richmond on Saturday was the only score needed for the senior goalie on route to the Patriots winning the title.
Senior wide receiver Jon Bell of Skowhegan had a great performance for the Indians on both sides of the ball in the team’s 18-13 win over Brewer. Bell had two TD receptions in the contest, including scores from 64 and 31 yards out. In addition to his offensive exploits, he also had two key interceptions in the second half to help Skowhegan into the Class B North final versus Lawrence.
The decision is up to you to choose who you think is the McDonald’s High School Athlete of the Week between these five great athletes from this past week!
