The Busline League middle school field hockey regular season is in the rear view mirror as five teams — Troy Howard of Belfast, Oceanside of Thomaston, Camden-Rockport, Boothbay Region and AOS 93 (Central Lincoln County area) — toiled against one another a few times a week this fall.

The young Lions of Belfast have dominated the league for years and have won a boatload of championships over the decades — including six in a row — as a few other schools have grabbed the title from time to time.

Troy Howard is 58-0-1 in its last 59 games.

The squads played eight regular-season games with the playoffs on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 15-16, as the championship will be contested on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 10 a.m. at Point Lookout in Northport.

Watch videos and see a boatload of photos below from recent regular-season games.

The final standings (records unavailable) included: Troy Howard, Boothbay, Oceanside, Camden and Nobleboro. Troy Howard receives a first-round playoff bye.

In first-round playoff games, No. 4 Camden-Rockport earned a 3-0 win over No. 5 AOS93 Tuesday, Oct. 15, while No. 2 Boothbay defeated No. 3 Oceanside Wednesday, Oct. 16.

The Wildcats await the winner of the semifinal between the No. 4 Schooners and No. 1 Troy Howard — scheduled for Friday, Oct. 18 at 3:45 p.m. — with the winner of that game to advance to Saturday's championship against the Wildcats.

The following is a recap of reported playoff results:

No. 4 Camden-Rockport 3, No. 5 AOS 93 0

At Northport Oct. 15, the Schooners sailed past the visitors. Camden-Rockport led 1-0 at halftime.

Grace DeCubellis, Natalie Lindahl and Delfina De Acevedo Ramos each scored for the Schooners, while Korsen Landfair added an assist.

Alex Turner had the shutout in the cage for the Schooners.

"The girls have improved so much throughout the season and with their eagerness of wanting to win and continue our season, we were able to pull out a win," said Camden-Rockport coach Brooklyn DerBoghosian.
