BREWER — The Camden Hills field hockey team made the trip to Brewer on Thursday for a match up with the host Witches. Camden got off to a very quick start scoring their first goal just 22 seconds into the opening period, however, it took until 2:10 left in overtime for the Windjammers to secure the 3-2 win.

Camden Hills moves to 3-5 on the season with the win, while Brewer falls to 2-4.

On the first drive toward goal, the Windjammers used up all of 22 seconds for Ilanna Lam to get by the Brewer goalie, Emma Look, and tip the ball into the goal for a 1-0 lead.

At 7:17 in the first period, Camden scored to make it 2-0 on a goal from Sara Ackley and it looked like Brewer was in trouble.

After not getting a shot off in the first period, Brewer's Callie Moran found the back of the box with an assist from Allie Flagg to make it a 2-1 game at the half.

A quiet third period where the two teams seemed to be playing better defense, and attacking the cage on both ends without either team gaining the advantage, held the score heading into the final period of regulation.

After holding Camden scoreless in the second half, with just 1:10 left in regulation, Moran attacked the goal and was able to blast the tying goal past Camden keeper Tess Hodgkins to force the overtime.

Overtime was intense as both teams picked it up and applied pressure many times. With 2:10 left in overtime, Camden's Anna Jordin found herself with a rebound off the goalie that she collected and bounced back off the goalies foot into the box for the game winner.

Hodgkins was in goal for Camden where she had 12 saves in the win. Look was in goal for the Witches where she had 10 saves, five of those in overtime in the loss. Brewer held the advantage in penalty corners with 13 to Camden Hills five.

Brewer will head to Mt. Blue on Friday for their next scheduled game on Sept. 24, while Camden Hills will travel to Auburn to take on Edward Little in a Saturday, Sept. 25 morning game.
