Camden Hills 2, Lincoln Academy 0

At Rockport Oct. 3, the Windjammers sailed past the host Eagles. Camden Hills led 1-0 at halftime.

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Class A North, Camden Hills (2-7-1, 7.3469 points) is 11th, while Skowhegan (9-0, 82.5510 points) is first in the 13-team region. The top nine teams qualify for the playoffs.

Camden Hills 2, Bangor 1

At Bangor Oct. 2, the Windjammers doubled up the Rams in a Heal Point-worthy win.

Lulu Lydon and Kyla Taylor scored for the Windjammers, while Molly Shook added one assist.

“Bangor is always a great competitor,” said Camden Hills coach Lindsey Clement. “They're aggressive and fast, but the game is always clean. We have a history of going into OT with Bangor, and neither of us coaches wanted that to happen again this year. The teams both played hard, but in the end we were able to secure the win.”

Clement said goalie Vicki Balla “had an outstanding game for us.”

“She managed to keep her head in the game and stay aggressive, yet composed,” said Clement. “As a coach, you always watch with hesitation when your keeper comes out to play the ball away from the cage, but Vicki made the right decision every time.”
