By Staff | Oct 07, 2019

It was an eventful weekend for the Camden Hills soccer teams and, on the flip side, a largely forgettable one for the Vinalhaven-North Haven squads in pitch games on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The Windjammer girls remained unbeaten on the season with a 12-1 win over Edward Little of Auburn in Rockport, while the Windjammers boys posted a 4-2 win over the Red Eddies in Auburn.

The islanders also dropped a pair of home matches against Richmond as the boys fell 4-1 and the girls 7-0 on Vinalhaven.

The following is a recap of reported results:

At Auburn Oct. 5, the Windjammers doubled up the Red Eddies to net their seventh win of the campaign. Camden Hills held a 1-0 edge at halftime.

Leading the Windjammer scoring attack were Quinn Brown (3 goals), Max Welt (goal) and Hugh Costigan (assist).

Camden Hills outshot Edward Little 15-3.

Casey Messer made two saves in net for the Windjammers, while Mack Sampson made eight saves for the Red Eddies.

"With valuable Heal Points at stake, it was a playoff-type game in Auburn [Saturday],” said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley. “Edward Little is a lot more talented than their record would indicate and they fought hard for 80 minutes. We missed some chances early in the game and went into the break up 1-0. Then EL came out hard in the second half and scored two goals in the span of two minutes. Down 2-1 we kept playing our way and the boys showed a lot of character and belief battling back for the win.”

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class A North, Camden Hills (7-3, 52.6020 points) is third, while Lewiston (9-0, 78.1122 points) is first in the 13-team region. The top nine teams qualify for the playoffs.
