Lincoln Academy and Medomak Valley battled to a scoreless first half, before the Eagles’ pressure paid off in the second for a 2-0 hard fought win in Waldoboro on Saturday in Medomak’s Homecoming game.
A wild first half saw the Eagles miss 11 shots high and wide, and Panther keeper Robbie Griffin corral 12 saves in a scoreless deadlock. Eagle Bo McLain had three shots on target, but the acrobatic Griffin nabbed them all including a header on a corner kick.
Griffin kept the Panthers in the game, and Medomak nearly scored, pressuring the Eagle net for five shots. Kyle Scherer tipped a Brandon Soper shot over the top, then stopped Jonathan Hendrickson-Belloguet’s header on a corner kick.
Three minutes before the half, Ryan Peters blocked a Hendrickson shot at the left corner on an Isaac Durkee corner kick. Scherer caught the blocked shot to end the threat.
Soper headed a shot on net 10 minutes into the second half, but Scherer was there to shut him down. Twelve minutes into the half, Lincoln scored on their first shot of the half when Brandon Bonney converted a Jacob Barrows feed.
Tom Masters nearly made it 2-0, but Griffin made a nice diving block and the Eagles’ second effort soared over the net. Bo McLain scored with 13:39 to play to give Lincoln a little breathing room. McLain collected a boot from Bonney and headed it off the right post. The ball ricocheted off the post back to the left corner.
