DIXFIELD — Luke Emery rushed for 156 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries to lead the Maran-acook Community High School football team past Dirigo 20-6 in a Western C Campbell Conference game Saturday afternoon.

Jesse Evans added 85 rushing yards and two touchdowns on nine carries for the Black Bears (6-1).

“They couldn’t stop us,” Maranacook coach Joe Emery said.

Luke Emery suffered a thigh bruise in the first half and was limited on offense in the second for Maranacook, which still rushed for more than 300 yards. Kyle Evans rushed for 82 yards as well for the Bears.

“It was a tough game,” Emery said. “The varsity played all four quarters. But our ability to run the football was the difference.”
