Coach: Jim Hartman, fifth year

Playoffs: Beat Oak Hill (44-6), Lisbon (38-0), Traip Academy (14-0)

Impact players: Anders Overhaug, Sr., RB; Caleb Uhl, Jr., RB; Ben Weinrich, Sr., NG; Bart Gallagher, Sr., CB; Bryce Snyder, Sr., S; Brady Neujahr, So., QB

Key stats: Yarmouth has a 23-game winning streak; Overhaug averages 16.4 yards per rush, while Uhl averages 11.2; Weinrich leads the team with 122 tackles; Uhl ran for 169 yards in the Western Maine title game, while Overhaug gained 113 yards.

Keys for Clippers: Contain Bucksport QB Mike Cummings, who makes good decisions with the ball. The Clippers can’t allow him to get outside. Yarmouth can’t allow the Bucks to run at will, because that will set up the pass — and Cummings throws a good ball. Offensively, Yarmouth has to continue to run as it has all year.


Coach: Joel Sankey, 17th year

Playoffs: Beat Mattanawcook (47-0), Foxcroft (21-12), Orono (25-14)

Impact players: Damon Klinedinst, Sr., DT; Mike Cummings, Sr., QB; Shawn Smith, Sr., TB; Jake Stewart, Sr., WR; Jon Geagan, Sr., WR; Nick Bishop, So., LB

Key Stats: Bucks give up an average of just 8.0 points per game; Cummings rushed for 540 yards and 10 touchdowns and threw for 539 yards and 12 touchdowns in the regular season, with just one interception; Bishop led the Bucks with 157 tackles, and Klinedinst had 50; Smith ran for 181 yards in Eastern Maine title game.

Keys for Golden Bucks: Bucksport has to contain Yarmouth’s running game, which has gained over 4,400 yards. One way is to control the clock, which the Bucks can do with their balanced offense. They like to run, but Cummings picks his spots and seldom makes mistakes.
