BAR HARBOR — The No. 4 Camden Hills football team trekked east for its eight-man large school playoff game against No. 1 Mount Desert Island on Friday, Oct. 28.

A few hours later, the Windjammers trekked west — after playing their final high school contest of 2022 — as the visitors came up short in a 42-8 defeat against the top-ranked Trojans.

MDI (6-3) led 8-0, 14-8 and 28-8 at the quarter breaks.

William Haslam was 9-of-22 under center for Camden Hills (2-6) for 95 yards, as he completed passes to Louis Mainella (3 catches for 28 yards), Dylan Lowe (3 catches for 25 yards), Cameron Lawrence (2 catches for 23 yards) and Owen Reynolds (catch for 19 yards).

Alex Gray completed one pass — a 34-yard touchdown to Spencer Laurendeau — and also threw an interception in the win for MDI.

Louis Mainella (17 carries for 50 yards), Reynolds (10 carries for 11 yards), Matt Mitchell (carry for 10 yards) and Lawrence (carry for 5 yards) led the Windjammers on the ground, while the Trojans were keyed by Gray (18 carries for  134 yards), Aiden Grant (6 carries for 56 yards), Laurendeau (4 carries for 29 yards) and Josh Wedge (carry for 5 yards).

Defensively, the visitors were keyed by J.T. Johndro (5 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles, interception), Lowe (4 solos, 5 assists), Isaac Dutille (3 solos, 2 assists), Franklin Coffey (3 solos, 3 assists), Justin Batty (3 solos, assist), Reynolds (solo) and Mason Thomas (solo, 3 assists).

Turnovers plagued the Windjammers in the early going as the Trojans took a 14-0 lead after a fumble return for a touchdown in the first quarter and an interception return for a score in the second.

Haslam converted a one-yard touchdown rush late in the second quarter — along with a two-point conversion run by Louis Mainella — which put Camden Hills down 14-8.

However, MDI held Camden Hills off the board the rest of the way — and pumped four more scores into the end zone for good measure — and advanced to the next round of the playoffs.

The Trojans, who also beat Camden Hills 30-22 in a regular-season game, lost to No. 3 Waterville (6-3) 22-12 in the regional championship game.
