WINSLOW – Traip Academy held previously undefeated Winslow to 97 yards and came away with a dominating 36-8 victory in a Class C football game Saturday.

“I’ve got news for you: We weren’t the underdog,” Traip coach Ron Ross said. “We’re 2-2 but we’ve played four very tough games.

“We lost to Maranacook because we made mistakes in the red zone. We lost to Yarmouth because we couldn’t score in the red zone. So if we put together a perfect game today, we knew we could win.”

Traip played close to perfect.

The Rangers took the opening kickoff and went 69 yards to score on a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Matt Clifford. That drive lasted 18 plays — only one longer than 6 yards — and lasted nearly 9 minutes.

The rest of the game followed that pattern. Traip’s longest play covered 16 yards and it had 338 yards of offense. Cordero Aldecoa rushed 26 times for 157 yards and Tyler Nay gained 83 yards on 17 attempts.

“We always run like that,” Ross said. “We’re a hard-nosed team and we like to play between our tackles. They’re huge. They’re strong. So why do anything else?”

Traip did such a fine job controlling the ball that Winslow (4-1) ran only seven plays in the first half, gaining 11 yards. A 1-yard plunge by Nay in the second quarter gave the Rangers a 15-0 halftime lead.

“All the indications that we’ve had in the league is they’re a very, very physical team, outstanding line,” Winslow coach Mike Siviski said.

“That’s a real darn good team. I’m wondering how they lost two games this year, to be honest with you. We’re a young team. I hope they taught us how to play football a little bit today.”

Winslow opened the third quarter with a 65-yard drive, culminating in Eric Crawley’s 11-yard run. Dylan Hapworth ran in the 2-point conversion and the Black Raiders were within 15-8.

But Traip came right back, with Aldecoa scoring from 8 yards.

GREELY 20, FRYEBURG ACADEMY 8: Svenn Jacobson scored his second touchdown of the game on a 26-yard run late in the fourth quarter to clinch the victory for the Rangers (4-1) against the Raiders (2-3) at Fryeburg.

Jacobson opened the scoring on a 1-yard run in the second quarter. Greely made it 14-0 in the third on a 25-yard pass from Drew Hodge to Mike Leeman.

Fryeburg cut it to 14-8 early in the fourth when Devine Dockery scored on a 2-yard run and rushed for the 2-point conversion.

The Raiders were driving for a potential go-ahead touchdown before an interception by Eric Coyne of Greely.
