It was a sunny day on the pitch for Waldo County high school field hockey teams — which remain near the top of their regions — while the forecast for the Knox County squads was not as bright at the conclusion of play on Wednesday, Oct. 3.

On that day, as the regular season winds down, Belfast swung to a 5-0 win over Camden Hills at Point Lookout in Northport, while Mount View prevailed via shutout with a 3-0 triumph over Dexter. Additionally, Oceanside was dealt a 4-0 home loss by Brewer.

That trend continued Thursday, Oct. 4 as the Lions and Mustangs swung to wins over Leavitt of Turner and Lincoln Academy of Newcastle, while the Windjammers and Mariners fell to Brunswick and Lawrence of Fairfield, respectively.
