RICHMOND — Funky haircuts are becoming something of a tradition in the high school soccer playoffs. Earlier this month, staff writer Gary Hawkins wrote about the Maranacook boys soccer team getting wild hair cuts prior to their Western B quarterfinal game.
The Richmond boys soccer team sported their own funky hairdoes in Saturday's 4-2 win over Vinalhaven in the Western D regional semifinals.
Randy Moody had a mohawk, plus a bobcat shaved into the back of his head and colored maroon. Evan Esancy had a mohawk with stars shaved into his head (one on each side, one in the back).
Center fullback Kade Strout gets the award for wildest hair though. Strout had a tall silver mohawk with maroon stripes shaved up and down his head.
Gary Hawkins has worked at the Kennebec Journal since 1980. His primary beats are baseball, boys basketball, girls and boys soccer and golf.
