The Cony High School football team wrapped up its practice about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, but not everyone headed to the showers.

Brothers Chase and Chandler Shostak, recovering from ankle and groin injuries, respectively, worked out for Cony athletic trainer Jill Haskell with the hopes of being medically cleared for their Pine Tree Conference Class A game Friday night in Auburn against Edward Little.

“I’m hopeful,” said Chase Shostak, a senior captain who plays wide receiver and corner back. “I’m anxious to get back out there especially after what happened last week.”

Messalonskee trounced Cony 46-0 in the regular season opener last week. Chandler Shostak hurt his groin early in the game and did not return.

The two receivers ran routes and caught passes from quarterback Ben Lucas under the watchful eyes of Haskell, who has the final say on their status for Friday.

Both Shostaks were told to check back with Haskell during the day Friday.

“We hope to get them back,” Cony coach Robby Vachon said. “Having them back certainly won’t hurt us. It’d be nice to get off the losing track and get a (win) under our belts. But we’ll have to play better than what we did last Friday night.”
