Panthers, Windjammers, Mariners see net gain in Sept. 11 pitch playCamden Hills, Oceanside girls soccer squads remain unbeaten
High school athletic teams in Knox and part of Lincoln County looked for early-season pitch victories in both soccer and field hockey Sept. 11 on a day which saw scattered success for a handful of squads.
Among Tuesday's winners were the Camden Hills boys and girls soccer teams, the Medomak Valley boys and girls soccer squads and the Oceanside girls soccer team. Both the Oceanside boys soccer and field hockey squads came up short in their respective contests.
The following is a recap of reported results:
Camden Hills 3, Mount View 2
At Thorndike Sept. 11, the Windjammers jumped to a 2-0 lead and held off the Mustangs in the second half to stay unbeaten on the young season.
Peter Vannorsdall tallied two goals for the winners, while Alex Blackwell added a goal and an assist and Tristan Fong one assist for the visitors. For Mount View, Lorenzo Milani scored both goals, with James Philbrick adding an assist.
Marshall Spear made seven saves on 14 shots in goal for Camden Hills, while Mikey Hustus made nine saves on 20 shots in net for Mount View. The Windjammers also held a 4-2 edge in corner kicks.
"We played excellent in the first half, executed our game plan and finished our chances," said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley, who still has not seen his squad lose in two-plus regular seasons (the team has a 31-game unbeaten streak). "In the second half we got complacent, [got] outworked and played a little sloppy in the back. Mount View is well coached and always plays hard for the full 80 minutes."
"We did not come out and play in the first half," said Mount View coach Chris Hink. "We were able to step it up in the second half and make a game of it. I was proud of the boys for not giving up and really pushing through the adversity."
Vannorsdall got Camden Hills on the board with 33:43 remaining in the first half, off an assist from Blackwell, who joined the scoring minutes later at the 28:34-mark, on an assist from Fong, to give the visitors a 2-0 lead going into halftime.
In the second half, Milani was taken down in the penalty area and then buried a penalty shot with 32:57 left in regulation, but Vannorsdall added an insurance goal with 17:49 left to give the 'Jammers much-needed breathing room.
Milani rounded out the scoring, on an assist from Philbrook, with 9:06 left.
Hurley said Milani "could be the best offensive player in the league and he made us pay for some of our mistakes."
