Skowhegan sets record with 64th straight win

From staff reports

SKOWHEGAN - Brooke Michonski scored three goals Thursday as Skowhegan downed Cony 10-0 for its state-record 64th straight field hockey win.

The Indians (7-0) eclipsed the mark set by Dexter from 2000-03. Skowhegan's last loss was a 2-1 overtime decision to Scarborough in the 2009 state final. The Indians beat Scarborough 3-0 in last year's state final, setting a state record for goals in a season with 147. They returned just four starters, but have scored 64 goals this season while allowing one.

Skowhegan's streak ranks seventh all-time in the U.S., according to the National Federation of State High School Associations record book. The national record is 106 wins by Casady High of Oklahoma City from 1956-69.

Given the fact the Indians have won 12 of the last 13 state championships, winning streaks have had little impact on Skowhegan Coach Paula Doughty, now in her 33rd season.

"I really don't know," she said. "I really don't care, to tell you the truth."

Renee Wright, Logan LeBlanc and Allison Lancaster scored two goals apiece against Cony, and Lauren LeBlanc added a goal.
