Windjammers, Eagles regional soccer final pushed to Nov. 1
Ellsworth — Due to unplayable field conditions at Ellsworth High School, the Eastern Class B championship boys soccer game will have to wait for another day.
Top-seeded Ellsworth (15-1) was set to host No. 2 Camden Hills (13-1-2) on Wednesday, Oct. 31 (Halloween night) for the right to move on to the state Class B championship game, but the regional final has been pushed to Thursday, Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. in Ellsworth.
The poor field conditions are a result of the heavy rain that hit the state in recent days from Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy.
Either the Eagles or the Windjammers have represented Eastern Class B in the state title game the past three years.
The winner of Thursday's game will face either Falmouth (11-3-2) or Yarmouth (11-1-3) in the state Class B championship, to be played Saturday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. at Scarborough High School.
The Yachtsmen are the defending state Class B champions.
Eastern Class B has not won a state crown since 1993, when Ellsworth earned a 2-0 win over Marshwood.
Since that time, Western Class B has won the past 18 state crowns, with either the Yachtsmen or Clippers winning the past 12 seasons.
