SCARBOROUGH — Heading into their Class A South field hockey quarterfinal Wednesday night against Biddeford, the Scarborough High seniors recognized they would be playing at home for the final time.

They made sure to make the game memorable.

With seniors combining on three goals, the third-seeded Red Storm rolled to a 4-1 victory against the 11th-ranked Tigers.

Scarborough (13-2) will play at second-seeded Marshwood (13-2) in the semifinals at 3:15 p.m. Friday.

“Our emotions coming into today were that we just wanted to stay focused,” said senior Kristen Levesque. “We just knew we needed to get a good night’s sleep, drink a lot of water and come in healthy and ready to go.

“It was very motivating to know this was our last game together on this field. It’s kind of special … we were able to go out and get a 4-1 win.”

Added Scarborough Coach Kerry Mariello: “They knew this was their final game on this turf and they really wanted to make it special, and I think they did that.”

Senior Lily Nygren opened the scoring for the Red Storm with an unassisted goal through traffic with just over 17 minutes left in the first half.

Levesque pushed the lead to 2-0 with just under two minutes remaining in the half.

“Scoring that first goal is critical, especially when you’re on your home surface,” said Mariello. “We really didn’t want to let them get any sort of momentum in their favor, and it kind of got the crowd going to give us an extra edge. The second goal is enormous. A one-goal game, no matter where the ball is, is always tremendously scary. The second one is just an enormous weight off.”

Just over a minute later, the Red Storm – who have won 13 straight after losing their first two games – saw their lead reach 3-0 when Rachel Paradis scored with 31 seconds remaining before halftime.

Levesque made it 4-0 with 22:03 remaining in the game with her 12th goal of the season, scoring on a pass from Nygren.

“She just took advantage of the opportunity to possess the ball and to create space for herself,” said Mariello. “She reads the defense very well, and both sees and gets to the open space very well. She’s aware of where her teammates are and looks to create open shots for herself or others.”

Scarborough used a solid passing game throughout to limit opportunities for Biddeford (6-10), which managed just three shots.

“The game plan was really just to stay low and come in attacking from the left side to the right,” said Levesque. “We just wanted to keep using all the things we’ve gone over in practice and keep executing those things. Offensively and defensively, we played a great game.”
