Thomaston — The fall high school sports season began on Monday, Aug. 19, as Midcoast teams kicked off their first practices, with exhibition games to follow.

Some of those games will be played behind Oceanside Middle School as part of the Oceanside Mariners Kick-Off Tourney, which will be on Saturday, Aug. 31 on three fields and begin at 9 a.m.

Two teams from Medomak Valley, in addition to one team from Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield, Nokomis of Newport, Skowhegan, Maranacook of Readfield, Boothbay Region, Buckfield, Camden Hills (junior varsity) of Rockport, Leavitt of Turner, Greenville and host Oceanside will participate in the event.

Games will be played concurrently on three fields: Sam Pendleton Field (the main soccer field behind Oceanside Middle School), the Oceanside practice field and the Thomaston Grammar School field. All three fields are within walking distance (though not all fields have bleachers) and the concession stand at Pendleton Field will be open throughout the day.

In addition to a full slate of games, teams will break for lunch noon to 1 p.m., when juggling, pairs heading and shootout competitions will be held. Games are 25 minutes running time.

An all-tourney team will be announced at the conclusion of the event, along with the winners of the three lunchtime competitions. T-shirts will be given to the all-tourney team and the winners of the three competitions.
