Connor Kneeland scored the lone goal of the game for the visitors, while Searsport's Ben Powell made nine saves in net. Lucas Boetsch made seven saves for the Schooners.
“Camden outshoot Searsport but poor finishing, lack of creativity up front and some fine goalkeeping from Searsport’s Ben Powell prevented them from putting the ball in the net,” said CRMS coach Dwight Pitcairn. “It was a good game and could have gone either way. Searsport has a very well-organized coach with a strong group of players who dug deep and deserved their win. It will be a challenge to play them again in a few weeks.”

"Camden [Rockport] dominated the game, however, Oceanside was a constant threat on the breakaway which almost resulted in an equalizer during the first half except for a fine save by Boetsch in the first half,” said Schooner coach Dwight Pitcairn. “It was a good result and all the players played their part. We changed our system of play about an hour before kickoff and I was pleased that the players adjusted well without complaint. It will take some fine tuning but we have a strong group of players.”
