BANGOR – Cody Chapman rushed for a pair of touchdowns and Bangor clinched an Eastern Class A football playoff berth with a 29-8 win Friday night over Skowhegan.

With both teams needing a win to make the playoffs, Skowhegan (5-4) struck first, taking an 8-0 lead on a 31-yard run and a two-point conversion by Adam Dusty.

But the Indians failed to finish several drives, wasting a 281-yard performance by Dusty. Zeb Tuell rushed for 180 yards and a touchdown for Bangor (7-2), which will be the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. The Rams will host Brunswick in the semifinals.

LAWRENCE 25, MESSA-LONSKEE 16: Shaun Carroll opened the scoring with a 27-yard run, and Aaron LaFrance returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown as the Bulldogs (9-0) finished their fifth unbeaten regular season in the last six years with a victory over the Eagles (6-3) at Oakland.

The teams will meet again next weekend in the Eastern Class A semifinals.
