Camden Hills 2, Erskine Academy 1 (2 OT)
At Rockport Oct. 8, the Windjammers got the winning goal with 3:25 left in regulation to sail to their fourth win of the campaign.
Sadie Mills got the game-winner, off assists from Suzannah Gray and Lexi Tinch, while Emily Bowen added a goal in the second half for the hosts.
Mya Maxim scored the lone goal of the game for the Eagles.
Jenna Stearns made two saves in the cage for Camden Hills, while Hannah Burns made seven saves in goal for Erskine Academy.
Camden Hills held a 9-3 edge in shots and 6-4 advantage in corner kicks.
On the winning goal, Gray, who had been injured for two weeks prior to Saturday’s game, carried the ball to the left post and after the goalie committed, pushed the ball to Tinch on the right.
Tinch flicked the ball on the cage and it was traveling just wide, but Mills touched it in for the game-winning score.
“Couldn’t have been a better combination of players and strategy for us,” said Camden Hills coach Lindsey Clement. “Sadie is so much better at air deflections, but it’s not something that we see often. Lexi is always ready and open in the circle. Suzannah is best at offense, knowing how to create and follow through with scoring opportunities.”
In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class B North, Camden Hills (4-8-1, 18.7755 points) is 11th, while Gardiner (13-0, 153.3163 points) is first in the 14-team region. The top 10 teams qualify for the playoffs.
