The postseason for high school baseball and softball has been in full swing with an expansive slate of games — and a mixed bag of results — among Midcoast squads on Monday and Tuesday, June 6-7, and then, after a few days of rain, again on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.

When the final pitches on a week’s postseason games were made, Mount View of Thorndike baseball and Searsport baseball and softball had swung to regional championship game spots, scheduled for Tuesday, June 14 in Bangor and Gorham.

For three of five Midcoast high school teams who stepped on the diamond on June 6 for prelim playoff games, victories were in order, including a sweep for Medomak Valley of Waldoboro and a bracket-busting upset victory by Oceanside of Rockland.

In regional prelim encounters, Medomak Valley swept Morse of Bath, while Oceanside baseball stunned Cony of Augusta.

Additionally that day, in softball, the Mariners lost to Hermon and Mount View fell to Narraguagus of Harrington in competitive affairs.

On Tuesday, Camden Hills split road contests with Edward Little of Auburn — as Windjammer softball advanced — while Belfast was swept from the playoffs by Lawrence of Fairfield.

In addition the same day, Mount View baseball advanced with a win over Piscataquis of Guilford, as did the Searsport softball team with a triumph over Forest Hills of Jackman.

Due to lack of players, Vinalhaven softball forfeited to Rangeley.

After a couple of days of rain, playoff encounters continued on Friday, as only one area team advanced to the next round, despite many competitive diamond clashes.

In baseball on Friday, Mount View bested visiting George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill, Oceanside was nipped by host Lawrence of Fairfield, Medomak Valley lost to Greely of Cumberland and St. Dominic Academy of Auburn bested Vinalhaven. The Mustang and Viking games only went five innings.

In softball on Friday, Medomak Valley was bested by host Poland and Camden Hills was downed by host Oxford Hills of South Paris.

Thus, only Mustang baseball advanced in the diamond playoffs, as they played at Fort Kent on Saturday, June 11.

Additionally, Searsport squads, defending state Class D champions, hosted semifinal playoff games on Saturday.

And, with strong June 11 play, the Mustangs and Vikings prevailed and earned spots in the regional championship games on Tuesday, June 14.

Madi Boynton finished with 13 strikeout in the circle for the Panthers.

Poland loaded the bases via walks in the fifth inning before a bases-clearing triple by Emma Bunyea spelled doom for the Panthers.

While the offense was steady, the story was phenom pitcher Ana Lang who twirled a perfect game in the circle, striking out 14-of-15 batters on the afternoon.

“I was happy with how the girls came to play,” said Viking coach Christin Obrey. “Having such an early game [noon start] was certainly out of routine. They came ready and eager to play in our first playoff game of this season. It was great to see the teachers bring their students up during class to give us that extra fan support during our game.”

Lang (2 runs, stolen base), Jordan Greeley (single, run, 3 steals), Hunter Kronholm (2 singles), Abby Astbury (single), Kiara Krumbholz (run), Mykenzie Tripp (3 runs), Lily Nadeau (single, 2 runs) and Kyla Perkins (run) led the Vikings on offense.

How dominant was Lang. Her usual self, of course. Forest Hills had scored 32 runs in a prelim playoff win and was held to zero (and no hits) against Searsport.

Class B North prelim: No. 5 Lawrence 10, No. 12 Belfast 0 (6 inns.)

At Fairfield June 7, the Bulldogs got a no-hitter from pitcher Sage Reed and advanced with ease to the Class B North quarterfinals. Lawrence scored two runs in the second inning, one in the third, five in the fifth and two in the sixth.

“We held them to three runs until the fifth inning,” said Belfast coach Sara McIntire, who’s team won three of four to end the regular season. “We had a great defensive game, but struggled at the plate. Reed is a great pitcher. Her changeup is nasty. We had a great season. The girls battled and we had each other’s back. We built a family. We have made great gains throughout the season with hard work and heart.”

The Lions, who lost 12-0 and 14-0 to Lawrence during the regular season, finished 3-14.

Class B South prelim: No. 6 Medomak Valley 10, No. 11 Morse 0 (6 inns.)

At Waldoboro June 6, the Panthers held the Shipbuilders (4-13) to one hit on the afternoon — and had their offense ready in a significant way — to advance to the Class B South quarterfinals.

Medomak Valley coach Richard Vannah said Monday’s game against Morse was a “great team win.”

“My girls were ready to play, they ran the bases superb and had great at-bats,” he said.

The Mariners got singles from Ava Philbrook in the second, Allie Colburn in the third and Maggie Callahan in the seventh, the latter of who plated Aubri Hoose in the final frame.

For the Hawks, the offense was led by Molly Simcox (single, run, stolen base), Katie Fowler (single, 2 runs), Ainsley Carr (single) and Lyndsee Reed (run).

Oceanside coach Katie Nicholls said: “We hit the ball right at people” the entire afternoon, adding that “Grace Pratt pitched a great game” in defeat.

Class C North prelim: No. 4 Narraguagus 9, No. 13 Mount View 4

At Harrington June 6, the Knights benefited from an eight-run fourth inning, which is all they needed and then some to move onto the Class C North quarterfinals. Narraguagus added a run in the fifth, while Mount View (6-11) scored three in the first and one in the seventh.

Alexa Coffin (single), Maddie Roux (2 singles, run), Hannah Coolen (single, run), Kayleigh Dunton (double, 2 singles, run), Ezra Holt (single), Bailey Cartier (single) and Belle Holt (single, run) led Mount View at the plate.

At Fairfield June 10, the Mariners (7-11) took an early 2-0 lead, but could not stave off a late Bulldog comeback as the hosts grabbed a one-run Class B North quarterfinal playoff win.

Class B South quarterfinal: No. 1 Greely 12, No. 8 Medomak Valley 2

Medomak Valley coach Greg Rice said: “Greely continues to be a phenomenal program and it showed in this game. They hadn’t given up a single run since May 11.. He said Greely has two Division 1 college-caliber pitchers and the Panthers saw No. 2 Kolben, who will play ball at University of Massachussets.

“I’m proud of the way the kids played regardless of the score. Our second time through the lineup, the kids started putting together some quality at-bats and putting the bat on the ball. We haven’t faced anything like we saw on the mound all year. Their starter was sitting high 80s, but the kids battled.

“We collectively struggled as a pitching staff as the eight walks shows. Anytime you’re throwing behind in the count to a potent lineup it’s a significant disadvantage and they made us pay for it.

“Overall, I’m super proud of what the kids did, not only today, but putting together an 11-7 season after a 6-11 season last year. ”

Class C North quarterfinal: No. 3 Mount View 12, No. 14 George Stevens Academy 2 (6 inns.)

“We knew that Lawrence is a really good team and we knew that we would need to play really clean baseball on the day,” said Belfast coach Chris Lavalle. “Unfortunately, we did not do that yesterday. It was a lot of little things that compounded into big things.”

“I’m proud of my guys,” said Lavalle. “We were a very young ball club. We had one returning starter and he mostly [designated hit] for us last year.

The Lions lost to the Bulldogs 7-3 and 9-0 during the regular season.

“We went down 1-0 in the first inning [and] Piscataquis put a couple nice hits together,” said Mount View coach Brandon Hurd. “From that point on we really controlled the game. A lot of contact. We only had one strikeout for the game. We used three pitchers who all showed good command and control of their pitches. It was a sold effort all-around by the boys. I’m not easy to please and I’m pleased.”

The Mustangs, who did not play Piscataquis during the regular season, will host No. 14 George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill (5-12) on Friday, June 10 (time to be determined) in the quarterfinals.

“Matt’s efforts have increased along with his role on our team,” Rice said. “Not only does he anchor our staff but this year we’ve let him hit and play outfield. The gritty effort on the mound showed he’s a first-team all-conference player. Those who know Matt well realize he didn’t have his best stuff tonight. He’s matured this season and finds a way when he’s looking for a secondary pitch to support him.”

Rice said he was “happy” his players could host a postseason game and, ultimately, win. He said the squad had “questions” earlier in the campaign when a three-game slide dropped it from 7-3 to 7-6. “Glad to see our guys prevail here,” he said.

On the regular season, the Panthers suffered a 2-0 loss, but also grabbed a 1-0 win. over the Shipbuilders.
