Bath — While the Oceanside girls lacrosse team has yet to play an official regular-season match, the Mariners already have a few preseason wins under their collective belt after taking part in the Sagadahoc Invitational Play Day Saturday, April 12 on McMann Field.
The Mariners, who are about to embark on their first varsity campaign, bested Edward Little of Auburn 9-4 and also picked up a 9-4 win over Mountain Valley of Rumford.
