It was a busy week on the pitch for Midcoast high school soccer teams, which began on Tuesday, Sept. 21, as Camden Hills of Rockport, Medomak Valley of Waldoboro and Oceanside of Rockland were action — and a majority of them nailed down victories.

On the boys side, the Windjammers netted a 4-1 win over Mount Ararat of Topsham, Panthers bested Morse of Bath 6-1 and Mariners lost 4-0 to Lincoln Academy of Newcastle.

On the girls side against the same schools, the Windjammers earned a 1-0 win over the Eagles, Panthers 3-1 decision over the Shipbuilders and Mariners lost 7-0 to the Eagles.

Vinalhaven was scheduled to play at Temple Academy of Waterville, but the game was postponed as the Bereans are in COVID-19 protocol.

The action continued on Thursday, Sept. 23 with a pair of wins for the Windjammers as the girls netted a 9-1 home victory and boys a 2-0 road triumph, both over Edward Little of Auburn.

Additionally, the Oceanside boys dropped a 4-1 decision to Gardiner on Friday, Sept. 24, while on Saturday, Sept. 25, the Panther boys netted a 3-0 win over Lincoln Academy of Newcastle and girls a 5-0 win over the Eagles.

The following is a recap of reported results:


Medomak Valley 3, Lincoln Academy 0

At Newcastle Sept. 25, the Panthers took advantage of the heavy rain in the second half — as they netted all their goals in the final 40 minutes — and prowled past the Eagles. The game was scoreless at halftime.

Mohamedi Ngido netted two goals for Medomak Valley, while Noah Ludwig added one goal and Will Cheesman and Jake Bickmore one assist.

The Panthers led 19-2 in shots and 3-1 in corner kicks.

Gardiner 4, Oceanside 1

At Thomaston Sept. 24, the Tigers netted a three-goal win over the host Mariners. Gardiner led 2-0 at halftime.

Landyn Benner had the lone goal for the Mariners, off an assist by Melvin Sermeno with 16:37 left in the game, but the Tigers scored on a free kick minutes later and had a late insurance goal with 38 seconds to play. The Mariners also had a goal waived off late in the second half.

Oceanside coach Travis Doughty said Friday’s game was the first time his squad had put together a full 80 minutes on the pitch in the regular season.

“Gardiner is a tough team and we played them really tough,” the coach said. “The score doesn’t reflect the game played. We really gambled in the final two minutes to score and they got a easy goal with 38 [seconds] left. The goal that was called off was a killer for us. We were controlling the game and I’ve never seen an offsides on a throw but those are the breaks. We had many opportunities and didn’t execute.”

Casey Paul (2 goals), Jackson Bourdreaux (goal) and Braden Dirogi (goal, assist) led the Winslow offense.

Camden Hills 2, Edward Little 0

At Auburn Sept. 23, the Windjammers netted a two-goal victory over the Red Eddies in a showdown of top teams in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A ranks. Camden Hills held a 1-0 lead at halftime.

Lucas Moody scored, off an assist from a Charlie Pons corner kick, in the first half to pace Camden Hills, while Ben Schenk added a late insurance goal, assisted by Evan Constantine.

Henry Pharris made four saves on six shots in net for the Windjammers, while Eli St. Laurent made eight saves on 16 shots in goal for the Red Eddies.

The visitors held a 6-4 edge in corner kicks.

“I’m unbelievably proud of the effort the boys put in today on just one day of rest,” said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley. “We are a young team, but we are hungry and we are playing hard together. It was great to get a clean sheet today and to play a 5-1 team at their field and come away with a bunch of Heal Points. There is a lot of soccer left to be played in this season, but we are excited about where we are at thus far.”

Camden Hills 4, Mount Ararat 1

At Rockport Sept. 21, the Windjammers sailed past the visiting Eagles. Camden Hills held a 3-1 edge at halftime.

Ryan Sokoloski netted the goal for the Eagles.

“I was extremely proud of the way we played today,” said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley. “The boys put in a total team effort from back to front and executed our style of play very well. Mount Ararat is going to win a lot of games and that should boost our Heal Points quite a bit. We have a return leg with them in a couple of weeks which will surely be incredibly challenging. They are well-coached and I’m sure coach [Jack] Rioux will have them more than ready when we head to the new turf at Topsham on Oct. 5. This was a great start to a tough week. Next, we head to 5-1 Edward Little [of Auburn] who will no doubt be up for what looks like another big game.”

Mariner coach Travis Doughty said “It’s really unfortunate we are having these mental lapses,” but “I’m seeing huge improvement in the boys.”

“They will come together here soon,” he said. “I can see the transition. We were also down players due to Covid protocol so we had to juggle the line up. With only 13 boys suited up, half of our starters today were freshman or sophomores. By season’s end we will be hitting our stride I hope.”
