ROCKPORT — The Camden Hills varsity girls field hockey program ended the regular season at home Thursday, June 3 as the young women emerged victorious on Senior Day.
The host Windjammers were able to close out the regular season with a 13-6 victory over Lawrence.
“These girls have been working hard these last four years to get to this point where they will be moving on to the next chapter in their lives and we were blessed to have the opportunity to be part of that,” Camden Hills head coach Wade Ward said of his 12 seniors. “It also marks the realization that those younger athletes will be taking over for them and the cycle continues.”
Seniors for the Windjammers include Ruby Cohen, Ava Baeza, Ella Cloutier, Anya Babb-Brott, Mary-Kate Pons, Caroline Contento, Sofia Mott, Paige Chester, Alexia Cazemajou, Maddie Boetsch, Grace Cody and Eliana Cortese.
Scoring for the Windjammers included Cohen (goal), Mott (goal, three assists), Contento (three goals, assist), Cazemajou (goal), Babb-Brott (three goals, two assists), Baeza (goal), Anna Griebel (goal) and Bella Ward (goal, two assists).
Boetsch tallied four saves in the goalie net for the hosts.
“We started off a bit slow in this one and it took us some time to find the net,” commented Ward. “Although the score shows we were successful in finding the net we couldn't really find out rhythm.”
The Windjammers spent the majority of the second half playing down a player due to four yellow cards acquired as a team through individual instances. Though a negative, Ward managed to find a glimmer of light.
“The situation presented us with the opportunity to work on some different sides to our game,” he said.
The Windjammers now await a murky playoff picture to become clear and see who and where they will open the playoffs.
Meanwhile, no junior varsity contest was held Thursday for Camden Hills in what was supposed to be the junior varsity’s season finale.
Ward noted the junior varsity group “performed extremely well all season long and its great to see how far their skills and field IQ have come since the beginning of the season; all their hard work paying off.”
