BATH — When the Camden Hills girls soccer team stepped foot on McMann Field pitch in Bath on Saturday, Nov. 3 for the Class A state championship, the Rockport-based school was fighting off Scarborough for the state championship and looked to extend an unbeaten streak dating back to the 2016 season. 

The last time the Windjammers lost a game came on Sept. 20, 2016. The Windjammers have won every contest since, except for a game that finished in a tie on Sept. 5, 2017. 

By the end of the state championship game on Nov. 3, the Windjammers had snagged a third consecutive state championship with a 1-0 victory over the Red Storm.

The 2017 season also ended with Camden Hills knocking off Scarborough for a state championship when the Windjammers collected a 3-2 victory. 

The Windjammers finished the 2018 season with a 18-0 record, while the Red Storm finished with a 17-1 record. 

The last time a Class A girls soccer team won three consecutive championships was 2005-2007 when Gorham collected three consecutive Gold Balls.

The lone goal came 12 minutes into the contest when Ella Pierce found the back of the net for the Windjammers. 

Upon returning to the Rockport area, the team was given an escort from Prince’s on Route 90 to the high school by the Rockport and Camden Fire and Rescue Departments, Camden and Rockport police departments, and North East Mobile Health Services.
