In professional sports, games on back-to-back days are a norm, happening multiple times in a team’s season, but when it comes to high school athletics, those situations are rare.

Nonetheless, the Camden Hills ice hockey squad had to endure a back-to-back stretch on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 26-27, but, luckily, those contests were on home ice.

Those back-to-back games resulted in a 7-0 win over Messalonskee of Oakland on Friday afternoon and a 6-3 loss to Presque Isle on Saturday night.

The game was tied 1-1 after the first period, while Presque Isle led 4-2 after the second period. The Wildcats added two more goals in the final stanza, as the Windjammers nettedone.

“We had our chances, especially early on in the game,” said Camden Hills coach Karl Enroth. “The defensive breakdowns we committed toward the end of the second period, and to open the third period, really hurt our chances in what otherwise was a closer game than the score indicates.”

The Windjammers outshot the Wildcats 27-22. Presque Isle goalie Andre Dangle made 24 saves, with Camden Hills’ Matt Czuchra stopped 16 shots thrown his way.

The Windjammers were 1-of-4 on the power play with the Wildcats 1-of-3. Camden Hills had three minor penalties for six minutes, while the visitors had four minors for eight minutes.

Camden Hills senior captain Cam Christie had to leave the game halfway through the third period with an injury, which was later diagnosed as a broken collarbone, the coach said.

“Obviously, right now our thoughts go out to our standout captain Cam Christie,” said Enroth. It was good to get everyone involved in the game and have our goalie Matt Czuchra get a shutout.”

Czuchra stopped the 23 shots he faced between the pipes, while Messalonskee goalie Eli Michaud saved 38 shots.
