“Today our defense really stood out,” said Mount View coach David Page. “We have six new starters between the back line, defensive midfield and keeper and they've been coming along nicely but really put it together today, getting the well-deserved shutout. Mia Rae, Kaylee Anderson, Greta Blake, Maddy Roux and Hailey Wood did an outstanding job of stepping up and winning balls and then distributing them to their teammates. And when we rotated Hannah Ferrera, Hannah Lawrence and Bella Holt in, there was absolutely no drop off. And Gabby Hanks controlled the box back there as keeper, taking numerous long crosses out of the air and making two big saves to earn the shutout. Outstanding win against a really good Temple team today.”

Gent made a bevy of impressive saves for Searsport, while Victoria Watkins made four saves in goal for Bucksport. The visitors had "at least" 30 shots on goal and held a sizable advantage in corner kicks, Garcelon said.
