Meetings on the pitch between Midcoast high school athletic rivals and neighbors Medomak Valley and Oceanside always prove fun and normally competitive and, for the second time in this shortened high school fall sports campaign, that was true — at least for the boys.

The Mariners and Panthers met on the soccer field for the second time this fall on Friday afternoon, Oct. 9 as the boys played to a scoreless overtime tie, while the Panther girls prevailed 5-0.

Earlier this season, the Medomak Valley girls defeated Oceanside 6-0, while the Panther boys prevailed 3-2 in a tight affair with the Mariners.

On Friday, the teams switched venues and it was more of the same in the girls game as the Panthers dominated the young Mariners, but the boys again battled in a back-and-forth, highly-competitive affair.

At Waldoboro, the Panther girls built a 3-0 halftime lead and increased that by two in the final 40 minutes for the victory.

Annie Vannoy tallied two goals and added an assist, while Abby Lash chipped in a goal and two assists. Autumn Ripley and Alyssa Creamer contributed goals for the Panthers.

Two of Medomak Valley's goals came on penalty kicks.

Medomak Valley led 10-1 in shots on goal, 10-0 in corner kicks and 4-0 in direct kicks.

Emily Harris made one save in net for the hosts, while Jillian Barnard and Hannah Robinson split time in goal for the Mariners and combined for five saves.

Vannoy ignited the potent, skilled Panther offense when she converted a penalty kick with 27:49 left in the first half. Creamer followed with a score, off Vannoy's assist, at the 21:04-mark of the opening 40 minutes.

Ripley made it 3-0 when she made the most of Lash's first assist with 5:50 remaining.

In the second half, Lash assisted Vannoy's second goal, this one at 35:29, while Lash completed the scoring with a penalty kick conversion with 8.9 seconds left.

At Thomaston, the boys could not determine a winner, as the Panthers held the better of play, as the visitors finished with a 13-3 edge in shots and 11-3 advantage in corner kicks.

In net, Mariner Isaiah Meklin made 13 saves and Panther Aiden Starr three stops.
