The first annual Oceanside High School girls soccer preseason kickoff tourney is set for Saturday, Aug. 27, as 12 teams from nine schools will square off over the course of the day in preparation for the upcoming regular season.

A collection of talented squads will be in attendance, including Brewer, Searsport, Erskine Academy of South China, Medomak Valley, Camden Hills, Belfast, Lewiston, Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield and host Oceanside. Erskine Academy, Camden Hills and Oceanside each will have two teams in the tournament.

Saturday’s tourney will begin at 9 a.m., while each team will play five games during the course of the day. There will be a break from 11:55 a.m. to 12:55 p.m. for lunch, as well as a juggling and shootout competition for those who wish to participate.

Each game will be 30 minutes running time. Traditional soccer games are 80 minutes, or two 40-minute halves.

Games will be played on Sam Pendleton Field, the Oceanside practice field and the Thomaston Grammar School field.

All teams will meet on Pendleton Field following the final games of the day for awards presentations.
