Whenever Ellsworth and MDI play each other, no matter what the sport, it's a hard fought game. You can throw out the records, when these two schools meet it's a great rivalry, on the field or court, but off the field, there is mutual respect, and friendship.

That was the case last night, when the MDI Girls traveled to Ellsworth to play the Eagles in an early soccer clash. It was a great game, with Ellsworth coming away with the victory, 1-0 on a goal scored by Katy Curtis off a flip throw by Emily Berry with 8:28 left in the first half.
