Thomaston — The annual Oceanside Mariners Kick-Off preseason high school girls soccer tournament saw area teams — as well as a few from well outside the Midcoast — make their pitch to get their fall campaigns off to a solid start on Saturday, Aug. 31.

Nine teams did that on the field on a perfect day for soccer as teams from Camden Hills (junior varsity), Maranacook of Readfield, Medomak Valley, Buckfield, Leavitt of Turner, Skowhegan, Nokomis of Newport, Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield and host Oceanside played 25-minute abbreviated contests as the regular season approaches.

Watch video and see more photos below.

Official scores from the event were not kept, but an all-star team of players — two chosen from each team — were selected.

The all-star tournament team consisted of: Darren Langera and Auran Teel of Camden Hills, Katie Ide and Winter Webb of Maranacook, Cara Merrill and Katy Henderson of Buckfield, Leah Mayhew and Kaylie Gilbert of Leavitt, Emma Duffy and Lydia LaPointe of Skowhegan, Meeghan Whiten and Amanda King of Nokomis, Leah Bussell and Danielle Dow of MCI, Grace White and Sadie Cohen of Medomak Valley and Grace Woodman and Isabelle Danforth of Oceanside.

Juggling, pairs heading and goalie competitions also were held, as the Maranacook Black Bears earned a clean sweep. Grace Dwyer and Kate Mohlar of Maranacook won the pairs heading competition, while teammate Emily Hupper won juggling and goalie Skylar Webb prevailed in the keeper competition.
