First, the game had to be moved from an 11 am start time to a 1 p.m. start because of SAT testing. Then the field had to be moved because the field at the Weatherbe Complex was scheduled for a 1 p.m. field hockey game. So off to Reed's Brook Middle School to use their field.

The Broncos really dominated this game with 80 percent of the play happening on the Lewiston side of the ball as they did a great job of stopping the Hampden offense throughout the first half.

Hampden finally got on top with a beautiful goal from Eliza Parker off an indirect kick from Anna Baldwin at 25:09 in the second half. It turned out to be the only goal they needed as Lewiston could not set up any offense as they were back on their heels most of the game.

Adie Hughes was in goal for the Broncos where she had two saves on two Lewiston shots on goal for the win.

Gemma Landry played outstanding in goal for Lewiston making some incredible saves in the 14 she made on 23 shots from Hampden to keep her team in the game.

The Broncos held a 2-0 advantage in corner kicks.

Hampden Academy advances to 6-2  with their second 1-0 win over Lewiston this season.

The Broncos will next host Messalonskee of Oakland Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 6 p.m. at the Hampden All-Purpose Field.
