Penobscot Valley of Howland has earned the top seed for the Penobscot Valley Conference’s Penquis-area COVID Cup girls soccer playoffs that begin Thursday.

PVHS (7-1) will host No. 4 Penquis Valley of Milo (2-6) at 4 p.m. in one semifinal while No. 2 Stearns/Schenck (5-2-1) will host No 3 Mattanawcook Academy of Lincoln (5-2-1) in the other semifinal.

Stearns/Schenck edged MA for the No. 2 seed by virtue of a goal-differential tiebreaker.

Lee Academy (0-8) rounded out the five-school pod.

The COVID Cup championship game will be played Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the higher seed, with Oct. 28 as a rain date.

This is the only PVC pod that is conducting a postseason tournament. Schools in the other four pods opted to play the maximum 10-game regular season allowed this fall by the Maine Principals’ Association.

Final boys standings and playoff matchups will be announced after Wednesday’s final regular-season game.

MILO — For more than 40 years, the Milo Ecumenical Food Cupboard has provided for families in our community. One might wonder about the food cupboard’s continued existence, but the need now is greater than ever. We once served between 50 to 70 families a year, and this November we expect to provide 225 families with Thanksgiving boxes. We invite you to be a part of helping us to help our neighbors.

Specifically, the food cupboard needs a new location. For years, this all volunteer organization has been housed in the basement of the Park Street Methodist Church in Milo. This means that clients must enter and exit via a narrow staircase. Our volunteers must navigate this same staircase when they assist in carrying out the groceries for our clients as well as unloading the heavy boxes of food delivered from our wonderful partners: Good Shepherd, Tradewinds, Elaine’s Café & Bakery,  Penquis, Shaw’s, Ripley Farms and Sam’s Club. Eliminating stairs would ensure easier access for our clients as well as save the backs and shoulders of our faithful volunteers! Additionally, a new location potentially will provide a larger indoor waiting area for our clients, an important consideration as we anticipate the upcoming winter season.

Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time on Thursdays between 7 a.m.  and 1 p.m. to help us. As we are working to assist our families on a weekly basis, we are also working to secure the funds for our new location, and your donations are critical to our efforts. Any assistance at all is greatly appreciated; please make checks payable to the Milo Ecumenical Food Cupboard PO Box 116 Milo Me 04463.
