By Staff | Sep 13, 2017

Short of one squad securing its first win of the season, it was an otherwise uneventful afternoon on the pitch for Waldo County high school teams on Tuesday, Sept. 12, with Mount View, Belfast, Islesboro and Searsport in action.

The Lion boys posted a 1-0 victory over Lawrence of Fairfield to secure their first win of the year, while the Viking and Eagle boys battled to a 1-1 stalemate.

The Lion and Viking girls — along with the Mustang boys and girls — were dealt losses.

The following is a recap of reported results:

Girls soccer

Bucksport 3, Searsport 2

At Searsport Sept. 12, the Golden Bucks pushed past the Vikings in the waning minutes and prevailed by a single score.

Mikaela Alley and Ashten Wells creased the net in the loss for Searsport, while Meaghan Goodine, Zoe Gosford and Cassy Coombs scored in the win for Bucksport.

Brooklynn Alberts made eight saves on 12 shots in goal for the Vikings, while Kaylee Knowles made five saves on nine shots for the Bucks. The Golden Bucks held a 6-4 edge in corner kicks.

Winslow 3, Mount View 1

At Winslow Sept. 12, the Black Raiders scored the first three goals of the game, which proved enough in a win over the Mustangs. Winslow led 1-0 at halftime.

Carly Warn scored two goals in the win for Winslow and Sara Doughty added another, while Monica Wren scored, on an assist from Katelin Bennett, for Mount View.

Shala Davis made seven saves on 12 shots in goal for the ‘Stangs, while Brogan Gagnon made seven saves on 13 shots in goal for the Black Raiders.

“We went out and played another top four-five contender for the Northern [Class] B crown and we played them even from start to finish,” said Mount View coach David Page. “I actually felt we outplayed them for stretches of the game. But, we just ran out of gas in the end. They were rolling four or five girls in at a time and although we gave it all we had, they got those two late goals to seal the deal. Just like the Waterville game, we'll continue to learn and grow from tough losses like this.”
