CRMS rules pitch in shutout of GSB in championshipKrul tallies two goals, Contento one for Schooners
Northport — For the second straight day, Camden-Rockport Middle School and Great Salt Bay of Damariscotta converged on the pitch at Point Lookout with the Busline League soccer title on the line.
After the Schooner boys prevailed the previous day, the Schooner girls followed suit on Wednesday, Oct. 22 in the championship game against the Cougars.
Thus, in 24 hours, CRMS celebrated two soccer titles, both at the expense of GSB.
The Schooners creased the net one minute into the contest and added two more scores before the final whistle blew as CRMS earned a 3-0 win and, ultimately, the league crown.
The game was a rematch of last year's final, which the Schooners won by the same score.
Kassie Krul scored two goals for the Schooners, while Sarah Contento added the game's final score on a penalty kick late in the second half.
Amelia Tausek minded the net for CRMS, while Avery Lowe played in goal for Great Salt Bay.
Team members for CRMS, coached by Robbie Krul, are Amelia Tausek, Emelia Brawn, Olivia Goodwin-Cook, Sunny Conlan, Samantha Zwecker, McKenzie Hilt, Hannah Walker, Lily Turner-Watts, Eliza Brown, Abbey O'Donal, Sarah Contento, Claire Pierce, Fran Woodworth, Kassandra Krul, Eve Gutheinz and Eliza Roy.
Team members for Great Salt Bay include Mackenzie Ford, Sammy Ober, Kaitlyn Feltis, Caroline Fowler, Helen Newell, Sarah Peavey, Sarah Begin, Riley Golding, Jenna Leeman, Madeline York, Kate Peters, May Halm, Emily Harris, Seguoria Patten, Alison York, Madison Beal, Molly Webber, Lily Gotz, Paige Camp, Schuyler Farrell, Courtney Gagnon, Madison Thompson, Sandra Thelander, Ella Feltis, Sophie Erikson, Ellie Matthews, Tatum Hancock, Grace Canny, Avery Lowe, Morgan Thompson, Julia Geineinhardt, Andrea Gutierrez, Evie Margaritis and Maddy Kelly.
The Schooners wasted no time getting on the board when Krul settled the ball in the box and, rather effortlessly, navigated her way through a host of Cougars and popped the ball into the net for the game's first goal.
The half ended with CRMS ahead 1-0, though Krul added to that lead roughly seven minutes into the second half with another score.
The Cougars, perhaps playing a bit aggressively in the game's waning minutes, were charged with a push on a Schooner player in the penalty area.
Contento then netted the penalty kick goal with roughly 10 minutes to play to round out the scoring.
The Schooners, the North Division's top seed, defeated No. 4 Medomak 6-1 and No. 2 Oceanside 8th 5-1 to advance to the finals, while the Cougars, the South Division's No. 3 seed, beat No. 2 Boothbay 2-1 in double-overtime and No. 1 Oceanside 7th 2-1 to advance to the finals.
