The Oceanside soccer teams kicked off the season with contests against Lincoln Academy of Newcastle on Friday, Sept. 1 — pitch games which, ultimately, proved uneventful for the Mariners.

The boys dropped a 6-0 decision at home on Sam Pendleton Field in Thomaston, while under the lights that night in Newcastle, the Mariner and Eagle girls settled for a 2-2 tie.
