Mariners run into Winslow buzzsaw as Black Raiders slice to lopsided win

Top-ranked hosts prove too deep, talented for Oceanside

Winslow — Oceanside football coach Wes Drinkwater warned, leading to his team’s high school weekend clash with Winslow on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 5, his players about the importance of “not letting the legend of Winslow,” annually regional and state championship contenders, “beat us before we strap up.”

However, the mystique of the Black Raiders proved alive and well for all to see against the Mariners — who were held to 65 total yards — as the hosts saw nine players score touchdowns in a 55-0 victory over Oceanside.

“I can only say that I’m proud of the younger kids for having the toughness to go in a compete,” said Drinkwater. “We are on a three-game skid and it’s time to see who wants to play. And it might be time to starting looking at what we have for talent for the future.”

Winslow, which totaled 230 yards rushing — led 26-0 after the first quarter and 47-0 at halftime and after three quarters. The game moved to running time in the second half — as is customary when a team leads by more than 35 points — as both squads reverted to primarily junior varsity players in the second half.

Colby Pomeroy was 5-of-8 for 116 yards under center for Winslow and was 5-of-5 on point-after kicks.

Robbie Clark had two touchdowns for Winslow and Cody Ivey and Nathan Newguard one, the latter of whom came off an interception return for a touchdown.

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class C North, Oceanside (2-3, 92.5000 points) is eighth, while Maine Central Institute of Pittsfeidl and Winslow (4-1, 130.0000 points) are first in the 11-team region. The top eight teams qualify for the playoffs.
