The high school sports season got under way before the regular school year even began and several teams got into action early.
The Washington Academy Raider football team snapped a long losing streak and opened their 2017 season against the Orono Red Riots in Orono. Jared Talbot ran for 185 yards and a pair of touchdowns carrying the ball 21 times in a 32 - 0 victory over the Riots in Orono.
Finn Furth added 42 yards rushing for the 1-0 Raiders. Joe Paul led the Riots with 35 yards rushing.
