Rockport — It seems the Camden Hills girls lacrosse matches have been few and far between due to inclement spring weather (Saturday's match with visiting Deering already has been postponed to May 24 due to expected rain), but when the Windjammers have gotten on the field they often have played well.

That happened again on Thursday afternoon, May 15 in a 12-6 victory over visiting Mountain Valley of Rumford on Don Palmer Field.

Camden Hills, which improved to 3-2 with Thursday's decision, won for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was strong offense, led by Lea Smith with four goals, Hannah Wincklhofer with three, Katherine Orne two and and Emma Brownawell, Jesse Goodale and Kiera Haining all one.

Windjammer coach Amy Gertner said Wincklhofer, Orne and Goodale also had assists marked in the scorebook, but she believes others assisted on goals for the hosts.

For Mountain Valley, Kassie Thibodeau tallied three goals and Katie Puiia, Kayla Pingree and Taylor Smart all one.

Brittani Winslow "had a great game" with 10 or more saves in the Windjammer goal, the coach said.

"Maddy Raynor dominated on defense being a great vocal leader," Gertner said. "Katherine Orne and Hannah [Wincklhofer] continue to control the midfield and I'm so proud of Lea Smith for her four goals. [I'm] going to miss her when she graduates. We had great passes, smart defense and enjoyed a nice afternoon of lacrosse."

In the most recent Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Camden Hills was ranked fifth in the nine-team region. Yarmouth was first. The top six teams qualify for the playoffs. The Windjammers' win over Mountain Valley was not included in the standings.

A bundle of Camden Hills matches have been postponed due to inclement weather, but will be made up at some point this season.

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Camden Hills (3-2, 10.5556 points) is sixth, while Yarmouth (5-1, 49.3056 points) is first in the nine-team region. The top six teams qualify for the playoffs.
