The Islesboro soccer team traveled across Penobscot Bay to the mainland twice in recent days to experience regular-season games in unique venues — one indoors and the other outdoors.

In fact, the Eagles, a coed high school squad, played fellow Penobscot Bay opponent Vinalhaven-North Haven on Monday, Oct. 15 on the artificial turf at Point Lookout in Northport, just days after Islesboro battled Temple Academy of Waterville in a rare indoor game on Thursday, Oct. 11 at the PITCH in Warren

There have been recent sloppy days across the state, as persistent rain battered everything, including athletic fields, but that did not stop Islesboro from playing scheduled games.

The islanders crossed the sea and made their way to Point Lookout in Northport, and PITCH in Warren, an indoor athletic facility, to face off with the Vikings of Vinalhaven-North Haven and Bereans of Temple Academy of Waterville.

Watch videos, and see more photos, below.

Despite the change of venue, and field conditions — PITCH and Point Lookout have turf fields — the Eagles slipped past the Vikings 2-1, but fell to the Bereans 8-2.

According to PITCH co-owner Robbie Krul, the Eagles' game against Temple Academy was "the first official high school contest PITCH has hosted."

The following is a recap of both contests:

Islesboro 2, Vinalhaven-North Haven 1

At Northport Oct. 15, the Eagles clipped the Vikings in wet conditions. Islesboro led 2-0 at halftime.

The first 15 minutes of the game were kept scoreless, until Islesboro's Jasper Louden put the Eagles on the board first at the 24:04-mark.

Ten minutes later, Islesboro's Patrick Kehoe found the back of the net at the 14:32-mark of the first half, to give the hosts an insurance goal.

Kehoe's insurance goal came in handy in the second half.

Vinalhaven-North Haven scored its lone goal 12 minutes into the second half, off the foot of Keaton Lear, to bring the Vikings within one.

Temple Academy 8, Islesboro 2

At Warren Oct. 11, the Bereans cruised past the Eagles. Temple Academy led 4-0 at halftime.

The game at the PITCH had to be altered a bit, because of a roof that did not allow for normal kicking heights, and some types of high throw-ins and headers, but both teams made due.

Islesboro turned on the jets late in the second half, scoring two goals, from Patrick Kehoe, but time ran out on a comeback attempt. Samual Jagger and Finnian O'Malia tallied assists for the islanders.

Noah Shepherd led Temple Academy with a hat trick, while Will Paradis registered two goals, while Yuma Takeda and Nick Blaisdell scored a goal. Shepherd, Takeda, Paradis, Jumpei Sakaguchi and Ilijah Ivokokic registered assists.

Islesboro's Finn Gibson stopped 18 shots in net, while Temple Academy's Nathaniel Wiles made six saves in goal.

Temple Academy outshot Islesboro 26-8 and held a 5-2 advantage in corner kicks.
