Directions to game in Scarborough

We’re playing against Scarborough this afternoon. Players should be there no later than 5:15 to get ready for our 5:45 start time.

Here are directions from the Scarborough coach:

Wentworth field:  coming from the Sopo/ Scarborough exit of 295, take Route 1 south to the Oak Hill intersection. (Intersection of Route 1 and Black Point Road.). At the light make a right turn onto Route 114.  On your left will be the turf stadium.  You will pass the tennis courts too.  Make the next left at the library.  Then take the first left to circle back around to the turf stadium.  On you right will be Wentworth school playground.  Our field is behind the brick maintenance building.  there is some parking at this building and overflow parking can be found in the adjacent Wentworth school parking lot. In the winter it is our ice rink if that helps anyone.  
Here is a Google Maps link that will get you to the Scarborough Public Library. And here is the map of our field location:

Game on Friday vs. Gorham | Tournament on Sunday in South Portland

We will be playing against Gorham on Friday at 5pm. Click here for directions to the field in Gorham; here is exactly where we are playing:

gorham-field

Please plan on arriving in Gorham no later than 4:30pm.


On Sunday, we will be playing in the Southern Maine Invitational tournament in South Portland at the Wainright fields. Our first game is at noon with our last starting at 3:15. Our schedule for Sunday:

Game One: 12:00 noon against MECW on field 16
Game Two: 1:45pm against Cape Elizabeth on field 15
Game Three: 3:15pm against Greely 1 on field 13

If you haven’t been to Wainright before, plan on an extra ten minutes to find your way. It’s a bit of a walk from where you park the cars and though the fields will be well-labeled, it’s still a good idea to factor in a bit of extra time to find your way to the right field.

Players should plan on being ready, cleated up, and ready to warm up by 11:30am.

There will be food trucks at the fields, though players should still plan on bringing tournament snacks to tide themselves over. It’s also not a bad idea to plan your food truck visits either well before or well after the lunch time rush. Busy lines can get long.


 

And finally— great news! Our shirts and shorts will be delivered a week early and will be delivered to my house by 8pm tomorrow. Hopefully the UPS truck finds its way to my house before I make the drive to Gorham for the game, but at the very least, we’ll be fully kitted up and ready to rock at the tournament on Sunday.

Roll Falmouth!

Pro game: AUDL— Dallas Roughnecks vs Austin Sol, 4/2/16

The Dallas Roughnecks play in the AUDL, one of the two professional ultimate leagues in operation (the other is Major League Ultimate), have built an incredible lineup this year with some of the best names in ultimate on the roster. Built around living legend and captain Beau Kittredge, the Roughnecks round out their starting corps with Jimmy Mickle (my favorite player), Dylan Freechild, Kurt Gibson, and Cassidy Rasmussen. All huge names in ultimate.

You should note that there are a few rule differences between middle school ultimate and the AUDL:

  • Double team defensive coverage is allowed in the AUDL but not in middle school ultimate.
  • Games in the AUDL run a certain length of time, not a certain number of points. In middle school ultimate, we play games to 13 or 15.
  • Games in the AUDL are run with observers/referees who make calls. In middle school ultimate, we make all of our own calls.

Bonus video: Beau jumping over a guy:

Bonus bonus: I drafted Beau on my summer league team waaaaay back in the day. It was his first year living in Colorado and I drafted him because he was tall. We ended up winning the league championship that year. I’m the beardless guy holding the disc up, Beau is second from the left. My only ultimate claim-to-fame.
