It was the fourth straight win for the unbeaten Windjammers, who have scored 59 goals while allowing just eight. Mt. Blue fell to 1-2.

“We are still growing and finding ourselves,” Camden Hills coach Wade Ward said. “We are getting very comfortable with each other on defense and are moving the ball well on offense.”

Camden Hills took control of the game in the first quarter reeling off three straight goals by riding Mt. Blue in it’s defensive end of the field creating numerous turnovers. The Windjammers’ pressing game resulted in scoring chances of six-on-four and six-on-five situations.

Kieran Lydon (two goals) notched the opening goal, just one minute 29 seconds into the game, firing a quick shot from the left side after receiving a pass from teammate Connor Davis.

Three minutes later, Windjammer Jonah Cameron (three goals) found the back of the net from the right side off an assist from Jet Magri, for a 2-0 lead.

Camden Hills struck a critical goal late in the quarter when Calvin Cameron, hit his first of five goals with 16.3 seconds remaining to take a 3-0 advantage on an assist from Thomas Griebel (three assists).

“We have focused a lot on throwing and defensive footwork,” Ward said. “It’s what we do daily and it showed today.”

Mt. Blue’s Leo Flannery cut the lead to 3-1 at 10:48 of the second quarter giving the Cougars a moment of hope, which faded quickly when Camden Hills ran off four consecutive goals to take a 7-1 halftime lead.

“We matched up well when it was six versus six,” Mt. Blue coach Kevin Averill said. “Camden Hills put pressure on us and caused a bunch of turnovers in our end and that made a difference.”

Mt. Blue long stick defenders Isaac Collins, Cody Gould and Adam Mealey were solid facing a Camden Hills squad that had quality passing skills and a strong ability to find the open man.

At the other end, Camden Hills defenders William Davee, Richard Vokey and Alex Vokey continued their impressive play this season, limiting opponents scoring opportunities and shots on target. Windjammer goalkeeper, Caleb Stern made just two saves.

In the second half, Camden Hills continued to control play, led by Calvin Cameron who scored four times.
