Three Midcoast high school field hockey teams hit the ground running in their prelim playoff games Friday through Monday, Oct. 22-25, a scenario that left one with an overtime home win, another a one-goal road loss and a third with an unconventional win after a long wait between overtime periods.

The game resumed on Monday, Oct. 25 back in East Millinocket, which the Mustangs eventually won 2-1 after two eight-minute overtimes and two rounds of penalty corners.

At East Millinocket Oct. 25, the Mustangs galloped past the hosts and onto the quarterfinals.

“Three injuries, a brief, but drenching downpour and the inability to find the drying material to put in front of the very muddy goal cages caused us to run out of time before the officials called a stop to the game because they couldn’t see the game,” said Mount View coach Gloria Hewett.

The game was restarted from that point Monday afternoon and, after the completion of the first overtime and a second-eight minute overtime, the game came down to penalty corners.

The Mustangs got the game-winner in the second round of corners to advance.

“The ball was inserted by Ivory Spaulding and sent into the circle by Greta Ahlefeld and pushed to the right side by Alexa Coffin for the assist when Mackenzie Burgess, on post, easily put it into the cage to the right of the goalie for the win,” said Hewett.
