The number of undefeated high school baseball teams in Eastern Maine dwindled to one — defending Class D state champion Bangor Christian — over the weekend when Caribou shut out Foxcroft Academy 4-0 in the second game of a Penobscot Valley Conference Class B doubleheader at Dover-Foxcroft.

The star of the game was Caribou junior left-hander Matt Curry, who pitched a complete-game five-hitter with four strikeouts and one walk.

Curry yielded no extra-base hits and did not allow a Foxcroft runner past second base during the contest.

He threw 97 pitches, 71 for strikes.

Curry also doubled and singled at the plate with an RBI and a run scored as coach Jimmie Thibodeau’s Vikings improved to 7-5 heading into Wednesday’s scheduled home game against Aroostook County rival Houlton.

Foxcroft, which rallied past Caribou 5-4 in the first game of the doubleheader, took an 11-1 record into Tuesday afternoon’s scheduled encounter at Dexter.

Bangor Christian (13-0) has two games remaining against 5-6 Katahdin, on Tuesday at Stacyville and Friday at Bangor, before closing out its regular season next Monday at 3-8 Schenck of East Millinocket.

Class A Scarborough and Class B Greely of Cumberland Center are the only undefeated teams left in Western Maine after Class C Saint Dominic of Auburn fell from the unbeaten ranks Monday in a 4-2 loss to Winthrop.

Scarborough (11-0), led by first-year head coach and Bangor High School graduate Ryan Jones, was slated to host 8-4 Gorham on Tuesday. Greely (13-0) is scheduled to play at 10-2 York on Wednesday.
