Rockport — The Midcoast's only two high school girls varsity lacrosse teams squared on Don Palmer Field on Wednesday, April 11 for a preseason scrimmage under this spring's typical conditions — sunny, cold and windy.

And the match proved competitive. Camden Hills used a goalie while the Mariners' goal was guarded by an "artificial" goalie or, as veteran Mariner coach Angie Vachon calls it, the "mean screen."

In the end, the hosts defeated the visitors 7-5. Both teams include a strong mixture of student-athletes from all classes, including a bundle of freshmen.

For the Windjammers, Audrey Heriz-Smith and Hazel Delehey tallied two goals and Anya Babb-Brott, Sarah Contento and MaryKate Pons one. Contento also chipped in three assists. Maddie Boetsch made six saves in goal.

For Oceanside, Emily Tyler recorded a hat trick with three goals and an assist, while Nicole Ladd added two goals and Kristina Ferguson an assist.

First-year Windjammer coach Wade Ward said it was hat's off to goalie Boetsch, while he and assistant coach Johanna Billington "were pleased with how the defense moved and communicated. We saw a lot of good things from our younger players. Our older, seasoned players helped to settle things down when needed and provided some early-season leadership.

"And Oceanside proved to be a hard-working, tenacious group of girls. They provided us with some great things to work on in the weeks ahead. Overall, coach Billington and I were pleased with how the girls performed and, more importantly, their level of energy and grit."

"It was a great first full game out," Vachon said. "We played well through the first half, lost some ground going into halftime, but regained momentum through the second half.

"With nine new players, it was a great opportunity to see what the girls had in a fun and relaxed preseason game with our CHILLS pals. The Mariner girls played well to the ball, had some nice cuts, catches and movement around the cage and generally good, overall play that we can build on though this first part of the season."

Cloutier, Ruby Cohen, Caroline Contento, Sarah Contento, Hazel Delehy, Sophie Ernst, Suzannah Gray, Ryan Hart, Audrey Heriz-Smith, Madison Holt, Aspen Laurita-Spanglet, Charlotte Leparulo, Ashlee McIntosh, Sophia Mott, Kayla Olds, Marykate Pons, Olivia Powers and Lexi Smith.
