MCI, MDI Win Regional Titles [SCORES]
The MCI Huskies earned their third consecutive Class D North championship Friday night at Alumni Field with a 41-0 victory over the Dexter Tigers. A pair of touchdowns from quarterback, Josh Buker, and two more from running back, Eli Bussel, paced the Huskies offensive attack which staked MCI to a 28-0 lead by the intermission.
The Huskies put in their work on the defensive side of the ball as well, suffocating Tigers' drives throughout the night.
After a 7-2 regular season and a win last Friday over Orono in the first round of the playoffs, Dexter's season comes to an end at 8-3.
For the Huskies, they advance to the state championship game for Class D next Saturday, where they'll meet the winner of Winthrop vs. Lisbon. A time for that game has yet to be announced.
The MDI Trojans captured their first ever regional football championship, beating defending state champ Winslow 12-7.
The winning touchdown came on a long drive in the 3rd quarter. Chris Farnsworth scored on a 2-yard run.
The MDI defense forced two turnovers to thwart Black Raider drives. Winslow was held to just 149 yards of offense.
Colby Lee led MDI in rushing with 70 yards on 16 carries.
The Trojans will face either Cape Elizabeth or Wells in the state championship next Saturday.
