Windjammers blanked by reigning state champsFoxcroft Academy remains unbeaten in 50-0 win
Rockpot — Facing the defending state Class C high school football champions is no easy task.
The Camden Hills football team learned that lesson firsthand on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 28 as the Windjammers welcomed Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft to Don Palmer Field.
The Ponies (4-0) are unbeaten through the first four weeks of the season and played as if they were in a 50-0 shutout win over the Windjammers (1-3).
Quarterback Nick Rozsahegyi was 6-of-15 for 58 yards and two interceptions for Camden Hills, while Connor Graffam made three catches for 39 yards and Jacob Chamberlain three catches for 10 yards. Nate Pascal also had a 10-yard catch for the Windjammers.
Taylor Crosby had 26 yards on 15 carries for the hosts, while Graffam added 20 yards on two carries.
Statistics for Foxcroft Academy were unavailable.
Camden Hills punted on its first possession and the Ponies took only four plays to go roughly 60 yards as quarterback Forrest Law scampered into the end zone on a 7-yard quarterback keeper with the visitors taking a 6-0 lead.
The Windjammers were pinned deep in their own territory on their second possession and again were forced to punt, as the Ponies started inside the Camden Hills 20-yard line.
The Ponies then found paydirt again on a two-play drive as Peter Boyer found the end zone on both a touchdown and a two-point conversion as the visitors went up 14-0 with 5:44 left.
One of the lone bright spots on the day for Camden Hills was when Graffam punted the ball to FA's Hunter Smith, who was stripped of the ball by Nate Pascal and recovered by Brian Clement.
The Ponies intercepted the ball on the next play and quickly went down the field and scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Law to Gaige Pleninger. Billy Brock rushed in the two-point conversion for the Ponies, who took a 22-0 lead with 10:36 left in the first half.
Foxcroft Academy continued to pour it on, outscoring the hosts 28-0 the rest of the way.
Leading the Camden Hills defense were Marty Farrell (solo tackle), Brian Jones (4 solos, 3 assisted tackles), Crosby (4 solos, 2 assists), Rozsahegyi (2 solos, assist), Elvis Bowen (4 solos, 3 assists), Pascal (solo, assist, forced fumble), Graffam (3 solos, 4 assists), Jacob Chamberlain (3 solos, 2 assists), Colt Muir (6 solos, 3 assists), Kaylo Littlejohn (7 solos, 6 assists), Noah Botley (2 solos, 2 assists), Dawson Lane (2 solos, 2 assists), Clement (2 solos, 2 assists, recovered fumble), Alex Winn (2 solos), Brandon Debrosky (2 solos, assist), Wyatt Summers (solo, 2 assists) and Isaac Hall (3 solos, assist).
In the Maine Principals' Association Crabtree Point Standings for Eastern Class C, Camden Hills (1-2, 81.6871 points) is seventh, while Foxcroft Academy (3-0, 151.6129 points) is first in the 10-team region.
