MDI falls to Winslow

WINSLOW — Despite a strong showing against Winslow High School last Saturday, the Mount Desert Island High School football team fell to the defending Class C state champs 40-20.

The Trojans scored 20 points in the first half to Winslow’s 27. MDI kept Winslow to 13 points in the second half.

MDI held its own against the Black Raiders, but the home team used four turnovers that went their way to their advantage.

“We played hard, but made too many mistakes to beat a team such as Winslow,” said Head Coach Mark Shields. “It is good to know we can play with Winslow. We need to continue to get better every week. We look forward to getting better this week versus Hermon.”

The Trojans had 17 first downs, rushed for 313 yards and completed 28 passing yards.

MDI’s Croix Albee had 15 carries for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Chris Farnsworth had 14 carries for 55 yards and one touchdown. Colby Lee had 21 carries for 150 yards.

On the defensive side, Gus Reeves had eight tackles and five assists, and Farnsworth had seven tackles and three assists. Drew Rich had two tackles and seven assists, while Elijah Joyce had four tackles and assists each, and Josiah Joy had six tackles and one assist.

The Trojans are 2-1 for the season and will next host the Hermon High School Hawks at home on Friday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.
