Freeport — It would be safe to state that if the Camden Hills boys lacrosse team did not play another overtime match all season, it would be fine with the team's players and coaches.

The Windjammers traveled to Freeport on Saturday, May 10 and rallied to the game in the second half, but eventually dropped an 8-7 decision to the Falcons in double-overtime.

The Windjammers trailed 7-3 at halftime and rallied to score four unanswered goals in the second half to tie the match.

The match appeared to be heading to a third overtime, but Freeport scored a goal at the buzzer to give the Falcons the win.

Cyrus Demmons and Parker Lawson scored two goals for Camden Hills, while Yani Stancioff, Jack Orne and Marshall Spear each added one.

Aiden Gordon played in goal for Camden Hills, while Connor Winchenbach won multiple faceoff situations and Grayson Szumilas snared many ground balls in the loss.

Windjammer coach Mark Hannibal continues to be encouraged, despite the team now being 0-3 in overtime games this season.

“This program has progressed to the point we are pressing top-tier teams who used to beat us by 10 [goals] into overtime situations,” he said. “The strength of the Pen Bay Lacrosse youth program feeding us freshmen who already understand the game and with respectable stick skills has really elevated our game.”

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Camden Hills (2-4, 3.2639 points) is seventh, while Yarmouth (4-1, 29.1667 points) is first in the 12-team region. The top eight teams qualify for the playoffs.
