Camden Hills 3, Brunswick 1

At Brunswick Oct. 14, the Windjammers notched a Heal Point-worthy victory over a longtime pitch rival as the visitors fell behind early and stormed back to beat the Dragons in a makeup game.

On a beautiful afternoon on Peter Gardner Field, the Windjammers went down a goal early in the first half before they stormed back with three goals in the final 15 minutes to take the win on the Dragons’ turf.

After an opening 15 minutes that saw the Windjammers dominate territoriality and possession-wise, said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley, the Dragons opened the scoring with a rare foray into the Windjammer end of the field. Judah Greenwald hit a cross that found its way into the net.

The score remained 1-0 at halftime.

In the 65th minute, Windjammer Cam Brown was taken down in the penalty area and he converted the free kick to tie the game 1-1.

Twelve minutes later Brown used his chest to settle a rebound outside the penalty box and crushed a volley that knuckled and dipped at the last moment under the crossbar for the go-ahead goal.

Less than one minute later, Sam Brownawell turned and delivered a strike from 20 yards that kissed the upper 90 and put the Windjammers ahead 3-1.

Camden Hills held a whopping 17-3 edge in shots and 8-2 advantage in corner kicks.

Henry Pharris made one save in goal for the Windjammers, while Brady LaForge made seven stops in goal for the Dragons.

“Today was a really incredible performance by the boys,” Hurley said. “We got down a goal early but didn’t panic and just kept playing our game and eventually it paid off. Both Cam and Sam scored highlight-worthy goals today, as good as you will ever see in a high school game, which was impressive. It was a lot of fun and we are full of belief in what we can do. It’s the end of the regular season and we’ve played a lot of games in a short period of time the last couple weeks. We will ice our sore bodies and try and turn around quickly for an epic tilt with Lewiston in Lewiston on Saturday [Oct. 16].”

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class A North, Camden Hills (10-1-1, 160.6732 points) is second, while Lewiston (11-0-1, 167.2972 points) is first in the 12-team region.

Josh Wright and Sean Paige combined in goal for the Vikings, as the pair made five saves on nine shots. Joshua Wiles had 15 saves on 32 shots in net for the visitors.

“It was senior night and our guys came out with a lot of energy and controlled the pace of play throughout the first half,” said Viking coach R.J. Robertson. “We had a ton of opportunities and couldn’t finish. We were a little more patient in the second half, which opened better scoring opportunities. We were very pleased and we hope we can build off this win going forward.”

Additionally, Robertson said Ashton Ellis has done a “great job” adjusting to the sweeper position after previously being a forward. “He had his best game back there yet. He’s quick, smart and a great leader of our defense,” the coach said.

Gardiner 2, Oceanside 1

At Augusta Oct. 13, the Mariners scored first, but the host Tigers tallied the final two goals, including the game-winner, in a contest at the University of Maine.

Oceanside coach Travis Doughty said the Mariners scored early in the first half on a “great shot” from Noah Ross from about 25 yards, off a back pass from Hayden Jacques, and “we controlled the game into the half with numerous shots.”

Harrison Garcia played in net for Oceanside and “had some great saves,” the coach said.

Gardiner’s goals were netted by Casey Paul, the first 21 minutes into second half and the final one at 10:22.

“We are playing a lot better,” Doughty said. “We played a very tough schedule this year. We are really focused on playing our best for playoffs, which is coming on strong. Today we were pretty dominant. That team (Gardiner) has won nine games and just beat No. 1 Erskine Academy [of South China] last game so we know we can play with the top teams if we don’t turn in the inconsistent efforts. Harrison was tough in goal today.”

I was so pleased that we could put in a good performance today against a good team to celebrate in style.”
