Historically, Camden Hills annually has challenged for state championships, while each fall Belfast has fought tooth-and-nail in an attempt to earn coveted regional playoff berths.

Thus, when the Windjammers scored a mere six seconds into the season-opening match with the Lions on Friday afternoon, Sept. 5, players and fans for both sides must have gotten the sense the hosts would control play.

The Windjammers did that for 80 minutes en route to an impressive 10-0 victory over the Lions on Don Palmer Field. Camden Hills held a 44-1 edge in shots and 3-0 advantage in corner kicks.

Like a tsunami wave, Camden Hills scored early and often. Josiah Simko and Josh Pitcairn set the pace as both scored two goals and Jack Gallagher, Jack Henry Grannis Phoenix, Eric Blohm, Josiah Krul, Kieran Lydon and Max Pushaw all one. The names of student-athletes with assists was unavailable.

Adam Throne had one save in the Windjammer net, while Garrett Hamlin and Sam Kulikowski combined for 15 saves for the Lions.

"We played great soccer today and got a good result," said veteran Windjammer coach Ryan Hurley. "Josiah Simko scored six seconds into the match and helped establish a high tempo. Very happy with the effort and level of play we maintained throughout the match today.

"We'll get some rest this weekend and go back to work Monday (Sept. 8] preparing for a Medomak [Valley] squad coming off an impressive opening-season tie against Oceanside."
