The Windjammer girls edged Lincoln Academy of Newcastle with a 9-8 home win on Monday, May 15, while the Windjammer boys remained unbeaten with a 9-5 road win over Lake Region of Naples.

At Rockport May 15, the Windjammers edged the visiting Eagles in a “great back-and-forth game,” said Camden Hills coach Amy Gertner.

Sarah Contento paced Camden Hills with a four-goal effort, while Olivia Powers added two and Ashlee McIntosh, Audrey Heriz-Smith and Charlotte Leparulo one.

Katie Southworth made 12 saves in net for the hosts and "responded amazingly to a few fast breaks [and] had some very quick saves."

Information on Lincoln Academy was unavailable.

Gertner said Ryan Hart, Heriz-Smith and Hazel Delehey "did amazing covering and blocking outlet passes," while Capri Buck led the team defensively and Maddie Bracher, Aspen Spanglet-Laurita, Sophia Campbell, Suzannah Gray and Sophie Ernst "all did a great job defending the goal, working as one."

On offense, Powers and Contento "had many give-and-go plays," while Leparulo and McIntosh also turned in fine performances, the coach said.

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class B North, Camden Hills (2-4, 5.2778 points) is 10th, while Morse of Bath (5-2, 43.0556 points) is first in the 13-team region. The top nine teams qualify for the playoffs.

After the Windjammers gave up an early goal to the Lakers, coach Wade Ward said, “We stayed pretty disciplined in our defense, holding them to just outside shots,” which went a long way to assuring a win for the visitors.
