The following is a recap of reported playoff results:

Coed

No. 1 Lincolnville 3, No. 4 Hope 0

At Lincolnville Oct. 21, the Lynx kept their undefeated season in tact and advanced to the coed championship round for the ninth time in 13 years with a win over the Hawks. Lincolnville led 3-0 at halftime.

Owen McManus, who leads the Lynx this season with 30 points, scored two goals for the hosts, while an own goal rounded out the scoring.

Avery Luft minded the net for Lincolnville and helped preserve the shutout.

“Time and again, the Hawk offense put pressure on the Lynx defensive four of sweeper Roo Boetsch, stoppers Mason Clark and Bryce Curtis and wing defenders Chloe Day-Lynch and Canyon Palise, but they proved equal to the task of containing the persistent Hope players,” said Lynx coach Ben Edes. “In addition, the LCS midfielders—Jaden Johnson, Sage Burgess, Nathan Oxley, Liam Day-Lynch, and Clark—showed their stamina by constantly running the field to support both the offense and the defense.”

No. 1 Lincolnville 5, No. 8 Appleton 0

At Lincolnville Oct. 18, the Lynx advanced to the semifinal round with a shutout win over the Wildcats. Lincolnville led 2-0 at halftime.

The Lynx were led offensively by Jaden Johnson (2 goals), Owen Markowitz (goal), Mikayla Talbot (goal) and Liam Day-Lynch (goal).

“Avery Luft, supported by the defense of sweeper Roo Boetsch, stopper Mason Clark, and wing defenders Canyon Palise and Chloe Day-Lynch, turned aside all of Appleton’s efforts on net to record the shutout,” said Lincolnville coach Ben Edes.

No. 1 Camden-Rockport 5, No. 4 Oceanside 4 (OT)

At Camden Oct. 16, the Schooners got the game-winner in overtime from Cam Brown and advanced to the league finals. The game was tied 2-2 at halftime.
