After what he felt was a disappointing performance in the team’s 41-21 loss to Maine Central Institute one week earlier, Bucksport’s stronger effort in this game made the team’s longtime coach optimistic.“I saw some good things today,” Sankey told his team. “Last week, it was a step back from where we were. This week, it was definitely a step forward.”Bucksport lost Saturday’s contest against the Dexter Tigers 18-7. It was the Golden Bucks’ second loss in a row and marked the second time in as many years the team had a losing record after its first three games.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“We were spoiled for a while, but the past two years have been hard,” Sankey said. “We lost to a very tough, very physical football team today, and that’s hard for your guys when you’re a team that prides yourself on toughness like we are.”Dexter’s defense made driving the field a difficult task for Bucksport from an early stage. Although the Golden Bucks forced the Tigers to fumble twice inside their own 20-yard line early in the first quarter, Dexter’s stout run defense kept Sankey’s team off the scoreboard on both occasions.Dexter (3-0) scored two touchdowns late in the first quarter on a 35-yard run from Zach White and a 55-yard interception return from Chandler Perkins. Liam Geagan scored for Bucksport (1-2) with 23 seconds left in the first half to make the score 12-7 at halftime.In the second half, Dexter responded to Bucksport’s score by shifting the momentum in its own favor right away. The Tigers drove straight down the field and extended their lead to 18-7 on a touchdown run by Brandon Allen on the opening drive. From there, Dexter’s defense held on to preserve the team’s undefeated record.“I thought we played harder, but there’s also going to be some disappointment when you play a tough game and still lose,” Sankey said. “We definitely tackled better than we did against MCI last week, and we need to be sure we keep that up when we get out there next week.”Bucksport was far from the first team that struggled to break down Dexter’s defense this season. The Tigers won by scores of 38-6 and 28-6 in their first two games against Houlton and Mattanawcook Academy, respectively, but the Golden Bucks played well enough on defense to keep this game more competitive than either of those contests. The Tigers didn’t score in the final 21 minutes, 2 seconds of the game.“We were able to stop their offense, but their defense made it hard for us to move the ball consistently,” Sankey said. “Not every defense we play this year is going to be this tough, but we have to know how to break them down when we do play one like this.”Bucksport’s will play its third undefeated opponent in a row when it plays at home against the Orono Riots (3-0) at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23. The Golden Bucks beat the Riots 33-18 last season.
