The Busline League middle school soccer postseason is in full force, however, the next few days of the playoffs remain clouded in uncertainty.

With inclement weather set to hit the Midcoast over the next few days, many playoff games could be postponed and, in turn, push back the Busline League championship games for boys, girls and coed soccer, now set for Saturday, Oct. 15.

The Busline League championship games are, at this point, slated for Saturday, Oct. 15 at Point Lookout in Northport, with the coed game set for 10 a.m., the boys championship at noon and the girls championship at 2 p.m.

All semifinal games are set to be played Thursday, Oct. 13, with the exception of the coed semifinal between No. 1 Lincolnville and No. 4 St. George, which will be played Wednesday, Oct. 12 in Lincolnville.

With the amount of rain the Midcoast is expected to see over the next few days, the possibility of Saturday’s championship games being moved back a week is being explored, so that all teams remaining in the playoffs will have the opportunity to schedule their remaining games on dry fields, according the Busline League president Jim Leonard. That determination likely will be made Thursday, Oct. 13.

Tuesday was a busy day with many teams in quarterfinal playoff action on the pitch. The following is a breakdown of recent playoff action, with reported results from games included:

Coed soccer

The semifinals are set, as No. 1 Lincolnville beat No. 4 St. George 5-1 Oct. 12 and No. 2 Hope will host No. 3 Appleton. In the quarterfinals, No. 1 Lincolnville defeated No. 9 Vinalhaven 5-1, while No. 4 St. George bested No. 5 Bristol 2-1 to advance to one semifinal. Also, No. 2 Hope defeated No. 7 Camden-Rockport 7th 3-0, while No. 3 Appleton bested No. 6 Camden-Rockport 6th 3-0 to advance to the other semifinal.

Lincolnville 5, St. George 1 … The Lynx earned spot in the league championship game with another dominating performance, this time against visiting St. George Oct. 12. The Dragons held the Lynx at bay for nine minutes before Jet Magri fed Morgan Mercier, who sent the ball to Josh Pitcairn at the top of the box. Pitcairn settled the ball, picked his spot and fired the ball home.

St. George was not intimidated, however, and at the 18-minute mark the Dragons bounced a shot off the post followed by a rebound shot off the crossbar before the Lynx defense could clear the ball. Just three minutes later, a superb save by keeper Nick Czuchra, followed by a crucial clear by Josh Pitcairn, was required to maintain the Lynx’ 1-0 lead.

Soon after, Lincolnville scored when Luke Burstein passed to Josh Pitcairn, who passed to Mercier, who scored. The scoring for the first half ended when Andy Pitcairn passed to Mercier, who quickly fired a long shot that landed just inside the far post.

Lincolnville came out strong in the second half and quickly took advantage of its opportunities. The first goal was initiated by Matt Czuchra, who passed to Mercier in the box. Mercier redirected the ball back to Josh Pitcairn at the top of the box. Josh Pitcairn fired it through the crowd for the tally. Lincolnville’s scoring ended when Czuchra sent a pass to midfielder Kieran Lydon, who moved it on to Josh Pitcairn, who converted it for a goal.

The Dragons continued to fight back, however, hitting the post after a scramble in front of the net at 23 minutes, scoring off a corner kick, and, finally, forcing Lynx keeper Jacson Mooers to make a charging save on a breakthrough up the center.

The Lynx defense — Keeli Wood, Elizabeth Cummons, Ade McGrath-Sheehan and Lydon and Burstein splitting the sweeper duties — played their usual stalwart games, blunting the Dragons’ many offensive drives and making life considerably easier for keepers Czuchra and Mooers, said Lynx coach Ben Edes.

No. 1 Lincolnville 5, No. 9 Vinalhaven 1 … At Lincolnville Oct. 11, the Lynx made quick work of the visiting Vikings and moved onto the semifinals. Josh Pitcairn scored two goals to lead LCS, while Kieran Lydon, Morgan Mercier and Andy Pitcairn each creased the net for the hosts. Josh Pitcairn, Mercier (2), Madeline Wight and Elizabeth Cummons added assists for the Lynx. Information for Vinalhaven was unavailable.

“The entire LCS team performed well, but notable on defense were Cummons, Keeli Wood, Ade McGrath-Sheehan, Lydon and Luke Burstein,” said Lynx coach Ben Edes. “As far as the offense, with this game, the Lynx finished completely rewriting the school’s scoring record books. Having previously broken the single-season individual and team goals record, as well as the single-season team total points record, this game saw Mercier break the single-season individual assist record and the team break the single-season team assist record. In addition, both Josh Pitcairn and Mercier broke [Josh] Pitcairn’s own single-season total points record and remain tied in an exciting scoring race between these two fine players that has been going on all season.”

No. 4 St. George 2, No. 5 Bristol 1 … At St George Oct. 11, the Dragons defended their home lair and came away with a one-goal victory. Cadden Lavoie and Kaylee McCorrison each scored for St. George, while Zack Davis added an assist. Levi Post made four saves on five shots in goal for the Dragons.

No. 2 Hope 3, No. 7 Camden-Rockport 7th 0 … At Hope Oct. 11, the Hawks soared into the semifinals with a shutout win over the Schooners. Julian Starbird scored twice for Hope, while Max Pushaw also creased the net for the hosts. Matt Young played well in net for the Hawks and helped preserve the shutout, while Schooner keeper Wilson McKay made 15 saves. Tristan Fong was the “dominant player for Hope as a sweeper and center midfielder,” said Schooner coach Alex Arau, while Erin Dowd and Zac Collins played strong defense for CRMS, the coach said.

No. 7 Camden-Rockport 7th 5, No. 10 Nobleboro 1 … At Camden Oct. 7 in a preliminary round playoff game, the Schooners made quick work of the visiting Lions and moved onto the quarterfinals.
