Mount View of Thorndike settled for a stalemate with Maranacook of Readfield, while Oceanside of Rockland came up on the short end of a one-goal defeat in overtime in games played on Saturday.

The following is a recap of reported results:

Camden Hills 2, Lewiston 1 (2OTs)

At Lewiston Sept. 25, the Windjammers got the game-winner from Addie Kelly in sudden-death as the visitors emerged victorious over the Blue Devils. The game was scoreless after the first quarter, while Lewiston led 1-0 at halftime and Camden Hills tied the score 1-1 at the end of three quarters and regulation.

Claudine Webber and Kelly scored for the Windjammers and Allison Lavallee for the Blue Devils.

Camden Hills coach Lindsey Clement said while Lewiston “was constantly rotating forwards on for fresh legs” on the fast, turf playing surface, “our midfielders offset that with smart play and their speed.”

She added Webber’s play in the midfield was exceptional, though it was a beautiful pass by Katie Thorn to Kelly that put the game on ice for Camden Hills.

“Going into the second OT we were exhausted,” the coach said. “After one good offensive push, we were able to hold possession around their goal. Lewiston wasn’t challenging us offensively anymore, except a few random big hits toward half field. Katie Thorn was waiting there to contain and feed the ball back to our forwards [and] she managed to thread a needle at 50 yards, directly finding Addie Kelly in the circle. Addie had been fighting all game for a goal, and she managed to find the back of the cage.”

Camden Hills held a 15-7 edge in shots and 5-2 in penalty corners.

Tess Hodgkins made seven saves in the cage for the Windjammers, while Kim McLaughlin made 13 saves in goal for the Red Eddies.
