ROCKLAND — Just two weeks into the 2022 high school football season Oceanside has made a point to literally and figuratively make its points.

Lots and lots of points.

And one of the Mariners with the loudest voice — and most significant made points — with his play has been Aiden Sergent, who has helped lead his squad to a 2-0 record with 512 yards and 10 touchdowns in 34 rushes.

The Mariners clicked on all cylinders in their home-opener on Friday, Sept. 9 under the lights at Wasgatt Field with a 54-14 win over Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield.

In two games this fall, Oceanside has scored 114 points.

On Friday, the Mariners, who trailed 6-0 before they set sail, received contributions from many players, none more than rugged, lightning-fast Sergent, who has dominated the competition. In this game, he finished with 17 rushes for 284 yards, and five TDs.

Defensively for the hosts, Sergent (4 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles, 1.5 quarterback sacks), Thompson (4 solos, assist, 4.5 sacks), Cohen Galley (solo), Blair (4 solos, 3 assists), Morris (2 solos, 2 assists), Ben Tripp (2 solos, 2 assists), Robishaw (2 assists, sack), Ripley (3 solos, 3 assists, interception), Foster (2 assists, interception), Richie Whitamore (solo), Brady Proctor (assist), Chris Mills (5 solos, assist), Jack Elwell (2 solos, assist), Landyn Benner (2 solos, assist) and Blade Brann (2 solos, assist).

“We started slow after a fumble, but we really got the ball moving from there on,” said Oceanside coach Sam Weiss. “Aiden is an unbelievable talent. When I don’t know what to call getting him the ball is the way to go. Our biggest focus this week was on defense, and I was happy with the way we performed. We forced three turnovers, and the one by Zeb [Foster] was a game-changer. Nate [Thompson] also had quite the day getting after the [quarterback]. We definitely got better this week.”
