AUBURN — After netting a single goal in the opening half, the Camden Hills varsity boys soccer team found the back of the net three times in the second half to thwart an Edward Little rally in Auburn on Saturday, Oct. 5. 

The visiting Windjammers (7-3) not only collected a 4-2 victory over the Eddies (4-5), but also collected valuable heal points in the race for the playoffs. 

"With valuable heal points at stake it was a playoff type game in Auburn today,” said Camden Hills head coach Ryan Hurley. “Edward Little is a lot more talented than their record would indicate and they fought hard for 80 minutes. We missed some chances early in the game and went into the break up 1-0.”

In the opening two minutes of the second half, the hosts netted a pair of goals to claim a 2-1 lead.

“Down 2-1 we kept playing our way and the boys showed a lot of character and belief battling back for the win,” said Hurley.

For Camden Hills, Quinn Brown recorded his second hat trick of the week and Max Welt recorded the team’s fourth goal with two minutes to play on an assist by Hugh Costigan.

The Windjammers had 15 shots, while the host Eddies had three. 

Casey Messer tallied two saves in the goalie net for Camden Hills, while Mack Sampson recorded eight for the hosts. 

The Windjammers will hit the road Wednesday, Oct. 9 for a contest against Bangor (3-3-3) at 6 p.m.

The Rams were edged by the Windjammers 4-3 in the regular season opener in Rockport in early September.
