The following is a recap of recently reported results:
Camden-Rockport 2, Troy Howard 0
At Camden Sept. 27, the host Schooners scored goals in each half to shut out the Lions of Belfast. In the first half, Colby Arau tallied an unassisted goal as he put the ball past Belfast keeper Rudy Schnetzer from a 30-yard free kick.
CRMS' Maddison Jordan had three saves in goal and Troy Howard's Rudy Schnetzer eight stops in net in the first half.
The Schooners made it 2-0 on a goal by Zach Collins, assisted by Matt Morse, in the second half. Morse sent a perfect through ball to Collins, who was running into the right side of the penalty box, and Collins drilled the ball into the left corner which gave the keeper no chance to stop the shot.
CRMS' Connor Davis had two saves and Schnetzer six stops in goal during the second half.
"Camden[-Rockport] had the majority of the possession and shots, but Troy Howard hung in the game and very nearly had a goal or two," said Schooner coach Dwight Pitcairn. "Having secured three wins in a row, Troy Howard was very confident and played a good counter attacking game. We played with patience and composure with some better passing than previous games."
Medomak 1, Camden-Rockport 1 (OT)
At Waldoboro Sept. 26, the Schooners and Riverhawks battled to a stalemate.
Laken Harrington scored for MMS, on an assist from Laken Harrington. The name of the CRMS goal scorer was unavailable.
Medomak 3, Oceanside 1
At Thomaston Sept. 24, the Riverhawks came away with a two-goal victory over the host Mariners.
Zidane McMurrin creased the net twice for the winners, while Cameron Leach also scored for MMS. For Oceanside, No. 35, who name was unavailable, scored the team's lone goal.
The 'Hawks attempted seven shots in the first half and 15 more in the second.
Camden-Rockport 3, Medomak 2
At Camden Sept. 21, the Schooners got a goal from Lucas Boetsch late in the second half and held on to win over the visiting Riverhawks.
Boetsch, Andrew Gross and Simon Morin scored for Camden-Rockport, while Morin and Calvin Cameron had assists in the win.
Connor Davis made three saves in goal in the first half for Camden-Rockport, while teammate Maddison Jordan made five saves in the second half.
With about 30 seconds remaining, Boetsch scored the game-winner on a long-range shot from outside the penalty box.
"It was a very tight game that could have swung either way," said CRMS coach Dwight Pitcairn. "Both teams had plenty of chances and there were some great saves by the keepers of both teams. It was a tough loss for Medomak and a draw would have been a fair result. Lucas Boetsch scored the winner with about 30 seconds before the end of regulation. He took a long range shot from just outside the penalty box that the keeper could not handle. Ball was moving fast with spin on it. The Camden team started slow and were having trouble communicating with each other and the passing wasn’t too great, especially in the final third of the field. All credit to the players they never panicked and kept to the game plan."
Appleton 5, Lincolnville 3
