After a spring of seemingly constant rain and wet field conditions, the sun finally shone on Saturday afternoon, which, ultimately, proved good news because it allowed the Oceanside and Belfast softball teams to play a game scheduled from the previous day.

The Mariners and Lions were to meet in a regular-season game on Friday, May 26, but inclement weather — that means more rain — forced the contest to be pushed to May 27.

The weather was much nicer on Saturday, which was the impetus for a solid end-of-season victory by the host Mariners and, with it, another brilliant pitching performance from Chloe Jones.

Oceanside's bats pounded 11 hits and Jones recorded her second no-hitter of the campaign in a 12-0, 6-inning win over the visiting Lions on somewhat soggy Thomaston Grammar School field.

Oceanside continues to battle to improve its record and position for the regional playoffs in Class B North. Belfast is out of the postseason picture.

On Saturday, the Mariners scored four runs in the first inning, one in the second, five in the fourth and two in the sixth to complete the shutout win. Oceanside had 11 hits and no errors.

Belfast, which also lost to visiting Oceanside 13-0 earlier in the spring, had one fielding miscue.

For the Mariners, Jones finished with two walks and 11 strikeouts. She is 12-2 on the season.

Brooke Richards (7 walks, 3 strikeouts in 4 innings) and Gia Davila (no walks, 2 strikeouts in 2 innings) pitched for Belfast.

The Mariners were led by many tremendous offensive performances, highlighted by Hannah Moholland with two singles, double, triple and two runs batted in.

Alexis Mazurek also belted another home run (she has a bundle this season), while Raechel Joyce (2 singles, 3 RBIs), Jones (single, triple, 2 RBIs), Kalli Grover (single, RBI) and Morgan Heal (single, RBI) also keyed the offense.

Oceanside coach Rusty Worcester said Jones was sharp from the pitching circle and "got plenty of support" from the offense.

The coach said Joyce had missed 19 days with a sprained thumb and "is coming back very nicely here at the end of the season.

"The girls are putting together some nice plays and coming together at the right time," the veteran coach said.

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Class B North, Oceanside (12-2, 105.3906 points) is tied for fifth with Medomak Valley of Waldoboro, while Belfast (4-11, 16.3281 points) is 16th. Gardiner (14-1, 139.5313 points) is first in the 18-team region. The top 12 teams qualify for the playoffs.
