Second-year Oceanside football coach Wes Drinkwater was well aware his Mariners would have their hands full on Friday night, Sept. 12 as they welcomed Marshwood of Eliot for the Midcoast team's home opener.

The Mariners (0-2) had “about 100 yards of total offense” said Drinkwater and the offense turned the ball over only twice, but the Hawks moved the ball up and down the field at will and cruised to a 60-0 win.

Marshwood (2-0) compiled more than 500 yards rushing on the night, led by Brett Gerry, who had 205 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries. Quarterback Luc Blanchette tossed a 22-yard touchdown to Jake Lebel and ran for a 49-yard touchdown in the second half, while Chris Sarzynski (14-yard TD) and Matt Caverly (2-yard TD) had scores in the second half.

“We couldn't get anything going offensively,” said Drinkwater. “Their defensive line and linebackers were some of the most aggressive kids I've seen in high school football. We have a lot of learning to do this week to get on track to take on Kennebunk, but thankfully we got through the Marshwood game healthy and we will be at full power going into Kennebunk.”

On Friday, the Hawks led 21-0 after the first quarter and 48-0 at halftime.

Drinkwater said Marshwood “had a great team and you can tell they've played together in the same system for a long time.”

“It's a nice thing for the kids to see,” said Drinkwater. “If you put in the time in the weight room, that is the kind of team we could be in the future.”

The Mariners start six underclassmen on both sides of the ball and Drinkwater said “they're only going to improve going forward.”

“We just need to keep a team-first mentality and we will win games," he said.

Marshwood has outscored opponents 107-0 through two games.

Oceanside will face host Kennebunk on Saturday, Sept. 20 at 1:30 p.m.
