The game, scheduled at the same time as the boys were competing in Rockland, made for a smaller crowd than expected for an Oceanside and Camden Hills matchup.

The first half was just what everyone expected as the two teams battled equally for the most part with Oceanside taking the 13-11 first quarter lead and Camden Hills heading into the halftime break with a 30-25 lead. The third quarter seemed to be all Camden as they outscored the Mariners 23-13 to take a 53-38 lead into the fourth quarter where they went on to the win.
