The Mount View and Camden Hills field hockey squads are off to sensational starts, with both the Mustangs of Thorndike and Windjammers of Rockport standing at 3-0 after Thursday afternoon victories.

Host Camden Hills beat Erskine Academy of South China 6-0 — highlighted by Taylor Porter’s hat trick — while Mount View nipped host Nokomis of Newport 2-1 with an overtime goal.

The Windjammers and Mustangs have been equally successful thus far, but have experienced different types of games against different quality opponents. Camden Hills has outscored foes 16-1 in three games and Mount View has outscored opponents 8-2, with two tough overtime victories.

Thursday’s results for the two local teams were:

Camden Hills 6, Erskine Academy 0 … At Rockport, with help from Porter’s three goals, Camden Hills beat the winless Eagles (0-3).

For the Windjammers, Charlotte LeMar added a goal and two assists and Alice Flint and Maci Heal also knocked balls into the back of the cage.

Sarah Nason played in goal for Camden Hills and saved all four Eagle shots she saw. Tabitha Plourde saved 24-of-30 ‘Jammer attempts in the Erskine Academy cage.

Mount View 2, Nokomis 1 … At Newport, the Mustangs sealed a one-goal win over the Warriors in overtime after tying Nokomis during the 60-minute regulation play. Brianna Moody scored the game-winning goal in OT. Chrissy Larrabee added a first-half goal for the Mustangs.

For the Mustangs, Abbie Charrier played in goal for the first half and Amanda Hall was in the cage in the second half. Charrier had a save and Hall made three stops. For Nokomis, Maria Adams had four saves on six shots on goal.

The Mustangs opened the scoring with 25:32 left in the first half. The ball was inserted by Moody to Hayleigh Kien, who passed to Larrabee for the score. Nokomis responded with the equalizer with less than two minutes left in the game, as Abbi Donaldson scored.

“It was a self-pass and a flick into the cage,” said Mount View coach Gloria Hewett. “My goalie was screened and didn’t have time to react to stop the shot.”

In overtime, Mount View’s Anna Piotti and Kein passed to Moody in the circle for a shot near the far post. The ball nearly rolled across the endline, but caught the edge of the cage and went in for the Mustang victory with three minutes left.

The coach said in the first half, Piotti had a “beautiful player save [on a shot] that would have scored if she hadn’t been there.”

The Mount View jayvees lost 3-1. Rebecca Kimball was in goal for the ‘Stangs. Anna Tsomides scored the lone goal for the Mustangs on a corner insert by Katie Cloutier and a pass by Jacki Nadeau. Alex Carleton, Brittany Moody, Mckenna Grotton and Hailey Davis turned in strong defensive efforts, said coach Hewett.
