For the second time in a week, the Belfast and Mount View soccer teams converged on the pitch.

And, for the second time this season, Monday, Oct. 5 ended with a pair of Mustang wins as the girls galloped to a 7-2 win in Thorndike and boys 4-1 win in Belfast.

The schools will play more frequently than usual due to most schools using regional schedules in light of COVID-19. The Waldo County athletic rivals usually play twice a season.

The schools are set to play soccer matches one final time on Monday, Oct. 19.
