High school girls lacrosse

Windjammers return to play with bang to sink Shipbuilders

Plenty of goals, assists for Camden Hills, as Babb-Brott, Contento lead with four goals apiece

Rockport — The Camden Hills girls lacrosse team started the high school campaign like gangbusters, with the skill and eagerness to succeed and the Windjammers did that with an impressive 16-0 home win over Erskine Academy of South China on Thursday, April 15.

Then, for a variety of reasons, none of them in the Windjammers' control, there were competitive crickets for more than two weeks as the team had to wait to get back into action.

Well, they did that in fine fashion on Monday, May 3 with a 20-8 home victory over Morse of Bath. The win pushed the Windjammers to 2-0 on the young season.

Camden Hills led 10-5 at halftime before it scored 10 more goals in the second half.

Leading the Windjammer offense were Anya Babb-Brott (4 goals, assist), Caroline Contento (4 goals, assist), Alexia Cazemajou (3 goals, 2 assists), Sofia Mott (3 goals), Anna Griebel (2 goals), Ruby Cohn (goal), Bella Ward (4 assists),  MaryKate Pons (goal), Grace Cody (goal) and Ella Powers (goal, 2 assists).

Goalie Maddie Boetsch made two saves for the Windjammers.

Statistical information for Morse was unavailable.

Camden Hills coach Wade Ward said he was pleased to see the Shipbuilders on Monday, especially with his team's recent game down time.

"We have missed a few games leading up to this one so it was great for the girls to have the opportunity to line up against another team and move the ball; test out all the hard work the girls have been putting in," he said.

He said Morse "did a great job of putting pressure on our dodgers and crashing to help, forcing us to move the ball and move our feet. We have needed to get a game in for our girls to see where we are at and to sometimes convince where we need to get a little more work. For one reason or another we had a tough time finding a rhythm today. [On Tuesday, May 4] that will be a big focus of discussion for us. I thought our girls did a good job of moving the ball and distributing our shots."

Morse won the junior varsity game 9-5. For the Windjammers, Zola Roberts and Ella Cloutier netted two goals and Anna Hildreth one. Camden Hills goalie Mckinley Boetsch racked up 15 saves over the two 20 minute running-time halves.

"This was a hard-fought seven-versus-seven full-field game," coach Ward said. "I am continually impressed with the increased skill level in the jayvee girls. It is most important for them to get on the field and test their development outside the practice environment. Just getting on the field and increasing their I.Q for the sport, finding what works and what doesn't and the feel of competition brings a newer level of understanding. Our girls showed some great work, but, in the end, the Morse jayvee squad did a good job of maintaining possession and put a serous amount of shots on goal."
