Rockport — For the first halves of the Medomak Valley and Camden Hills baseball and softball contests on Monday, April 26, it was anyone's game.

But, as said high school diamond affairs moved through the innings the Medomak Valley softball team's offense picked up where it left off in its first two regular-season contests, while the Camden Hills baseball team needed its final at-bats to grab a victory,

The Panthers (3-0) added run after run en-route to a 14-1, five-inning softball victory over Camden Hills (1-1), while Aiden Schecter knocked in the winning run with a bases-loaded single to center field in the bottom of the seventh inning to give host Camden Hills (3-1) an 8-7 victory over Medomak Valley (0-2).
