It was a day to remember for the Oceanside of Rockland and Mount View of Thorndike high school field hockey teams on Tuesday, Oct. 4 as one goal proved enough for the Midcoast squads, which needed extra time to cement razor-slim victories.

The Mariners traveled to Rockport and emerged with a 1-0 overtime win over Camden Hills, while the Mustangs also got the game-winning goal in OT and caged a 1-0 home victory over Erskine Academy of South China.
