A battle of unbeaten high school boys lacrosse teams under the lights was on tap on Tuesday night, May 4 as Camden Hills traveled to face Messalonskee, an opponent the Windjammers have never beaten in the history of their program.

That trend continued for the Windjammers against the talented Eagles on Tuesday, as the hosts came away with a 10-3 victory. Camen Hills was 4-0 as it headed into the match.

Camden Hills coach Harrison Rogers said the Eagles always are a tough match and that “coach Tom Sheridan always has his team ready to play us with sound team defense, smart ball possession, and pushing the attack when they have a break.”

“Messalonskee had their defense ready with the first slide all day long and we didn’t move the ball fast enough to flip the fields to attack the opposite side where they didn’t have a slide anymore,” Rogers said. “Our midfielders and attackmen did a great job being a threat and drawing the first slide, but they then tried to do too much themselves. We just didn’t have that trust in our teammates today and belief that when one of our guys initiates the offense, we can then get the ball moving to find the scoring threats on the weak side.”

Messalonskee led Camden Hills 4-0 after the first quarter and 6-0 at halftime.

Levi Guay scored twice and added one assist for Camden Hills, while Jackson Fitch added one goal and Charlie Griebel one assist.

Fitch, Elias Libby and Rory Powell corralled four ground balls and Griebel two.

For Messalonskee, Brady Brunelle (4 goals), Bryce Crowell (3 goals, assist), Colby Taylor (goal, assist), Luke Buck (goal), Will Durkee (goal, assist) and Rhys Bridges (assist) keyed the offense.

Camden Powell made 12 saves on 22 shots in goal for the Windjammers, while Ian McCurdy made nine saves on 12 shots in net for the Eagles.
