Nothing offensive about second victory for goal-oriented Windjammers

Rockport — For the second straight match, the Camden Hills boys lacrosse team played an unselfish 48 minutes at Don Palmer Field.

That again proved a recipe for success for the Windjammers — this time against Erskine Academy of South China — as the hosts sailed to a 22-3 high school pitch win on Saturday, April 26.

The Windjammers have started the campaign 2-0.

Camden Hills coach Harrison Rogers said he was pleased with his team’s efforts.

“We attacked one side of the field, were able to draw slides after the players beat their defensemen, and move the ball quickly around their rotating defense to the other side to find the easy one versus one opportunities on the doorstep with the goalie,” he said.

Camden Hills led 6-1, 11-2 and 14-3 at the quarter breaks and finished with a 37-7 advantage in shots.

Leading the potent Windjammer offense were Levi Guay (5 goals, 5 assists, 4 ground balls), Jackson Fitch (5 goals, assist, 4 ground balls), Willy Doehla (3 goals, 2 assists), Jakob Johnson (3 goals, assist), Nolan Delehey (goal, 2 assists, 8 ground balls), Noah Quensel (2 goals, assist) Hunter Smith (2 goals), Emmet Marshall (goal) and Quinn Riordan (assist).

Rory Carlson also collected four defensive ground balls and Elias Libby four.

For the Eagles, Michael Nicholas (goal, assist), Casey Kirkpatrick (goal), Austin Nicholas (goal) and Brady Kirkpatrick (assist) paced the offense.

In goal, Camden Powell made two saves on three shots in three quarters for the hosts, while Cole Freeman made one save on one shot in relief in the fourth quarter.

Rogers added Guay, Doehla and Johnson “had a big day for us.”

“They took that extra split second and moved their feet for higher-quality shots and scoring chances,” the coach said. “They also knew when the slide was coming to find the open man or when the slide did not come after they beat their defenseman, they turned the corner and finished.”

Delehey also won 20-of-28 faceoffs for Camden Hills, while Rory Carlson, Elias Libby, Smith, Quesnel, Simon Polk, Quinn Riordan and Marshall had "another huge day for us at midfield," the coach said.

“These players won us possession of the ball that led to us having the ball in our offensive end most of the game,” said Rogers. “Jackson Fitch [also] continues to lead our offense from the offensive midfield with five goals and one assist. Jackson is the type of player that can score from anywhere on the field and can make a team pay when they don’t slide early to him.”
