Camden's constant pressure on the ball in the first half kept the Rams from many scoring opportunities and putting them back on defense time and time again.

At 11:35 in the first half, the Windjammers Kris Kelly took a ball on a cross from Ella Pierce and headed the ball past Ram keeper Hannah Osmer for the 1-0 lead.

Kelly had a foot in the second goal when she served Kaylyn Krull who was able to get a leg on it to drive it into the back of the net for the 2-0 lead they took into the halftime.

Ali Tossoni put the Windjammers up 3-0 with 4:45 left in the game.

The Rams stayed aggressive and came back with their only goal 0:32 seconds later at 4:11 with a goal from freshman Emily Streams on a rebound off another player.

Alex Southworth easily handled the few shots that came her way for the Windjammers to earn the season opener.

Osmer was outstanding in goal making some very impressive saves on some hard shots as Camden Hills outshot the Rams by quite a margin.

The Windjammers will be back in action next Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Brewer at 3:30 p.m. Bangor will travel to Messalonskee of Oakland for a 3:30 p.m. start.
