Unbeaten Camden Hills shine in overtime, remains unbeatenWindjammers will vie for another KVAC Class B title Oct. 24
Waterville — The Camden Hills boys soccer team looks to be on its way to another unbeaten season and possibly league and regional championship campaigns.
Though the team's 2-1 win over Waterville on Friday, Oct. 18 was anything but smooth sailing for the Windjammers.
The Rockport-based squad trailed with time winding down in regulation before tying the game with less than five minutes to play and won in overtime. It marked the second straight OT game for Camden Hills, which tied Maranacook of Readfield 1-1 earlier in the week.
On Friday, Colin Morse tied the game with 4:46 left in regulation, on an assist from Tristan Fong, then won the game 1:41 into the first overtime with a goal, on an assist from Peter Vannorsdall.
Danilo Guthro scored the lone goal for the Purple Panthers.
Marshall Spear made nine saves on 11 shots in goal for Camden Hills, while Zack Disch made 11 saves on 21 shots in net for Waterville.
The Windjammers, who have outscored opponents 72-6 this season, with seven shutouts, will host Lincoln Academy of Newcastle on Tuesday, Oct. 22 to end the regular season.
"We were very fortunate to escape with a win up in Waterville,” said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley. “Hopefully we'll regain our focus and intensity in time for Tuesday's game with a rejuvenated Lincoln Academy team who's coming off a 1-1 tie with Winslow.”
Camden Hills has won the Eastern Class B championship the past two seasons and are locked in to compete in the upcoming Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B championship game on Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Capital Area Soccer Association fields. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
The Windjammers will play Maranacook in the league title game.
In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Camden Hills (12-0-1, 117.8571 points) is second, while Ellsworth (12-0-1, 136.6709 points) is first in the 19-team region. The top 13 teams qualify for the playoffs.
