The Camden Hills girls lacrosse team proved an offensive bunch on Thursday afternoon, April 25 and there was nothing bad about it — in fact, from the Windjammers' perspective, it was all good.

From a goal-scoring standpoint it was a positive for the host Windjammers (2-1), who defeated visiting Mountain Valley of Rumford 19-3.

Alice Flint scored four goals, Lea Smith and Caroline Matteo both three, Addie Drinkwater and Hannah Wincklhofer both two and Kiera Haining, Addie Bragg, Zia Sulick and Hannah Brownawell all one for Camden Hills.

Smith had the most shots on goal and Matteo had "beautiful" assists, said Camden Hills coach Amy Gertner. Goalie Cailand Sweeting "was ready and prepared for a challenging game and never seems to grow impatient in the goal. Her consistency is very admirable," the coach said.

"We played very well today. The weather was beautiful and the feeling of CHRHS was supportive and spirits were high. Spring was definitely in the air finally and I think the sun charged our girls with energy.

"We were practicing a new offense and I felt it was a great opportunity to fine tune this. We will continue to work on our ground balls and communicating on defense. I know Mountain Valley is in a rebuilding season but they showed hustle and I admired their aggressiveness even during a loss, especially so far from their home field. A long bus ride can be hard to bounce back from.

"I tried some new things today and we lucked out that everything went in our favor. The girls were moving seamlessly on attack during the second half [and] it made my job very easy. Haley Williams started the game off with four incredible defensive plays and really set the tone for the rest of the game. She and Sarah Scott were working as a strong pair in the middle on defense."
