• Madison senior Kirsten Wood scored three goals and added an assist in a win over Winthrop.
• Waterville junior Pilar Elias scored three goals and had an assist in a 5-0 win against Nokomis.
• Waterville senior Tommy Samson scored four goals in a 6-0 win over Nokomis.
• Erskine senior Jade Canak scored three goals in a tie against Morse.
• Carrabec senior Brooklynne Lewis scored three goals and had an assist in a 4-2 win against Monmouth and three goals in a 5-2 win over Lisbon.
• Carrabec sophomore Trent Richardson made 16 saves in a 0-0 tie against unbeaten St. Dom’s.
• Mt. Abram junior Katie Jordan scored in the second overtime period to lead the Roadrunners to a 3-2 win against Telstar.
"We scored early," Herrick said. "Toward the end of the game we held on for dear life and she made some incredible saves. She's given us a chance no matter who we're playing."
A 3-0 loss to St. Dom's was the only game in which Kandiko has given up more than a goal. The Bulldogs are getting scoring from senior Kirsten Wood and sophomore Kayla Bass. When Wood missed a recent game due to illness, junior Whitney Lloyd filled in and scored four goals.
Herrick said he had questions about the team's defense, but those were helped when he moved sophomore Emily Oliver back to sweeper this year. Last season she played outside midfield.
"She's made the adjustment," Herrick said. "She's been huge for us."

The Erskine girls were 7-2-1 heading into Thursday's game at Winslow and playing well. The Eagles dropped games to Maranacook and Leavitt and last week tied Morse and have a chance to redeem those decisions in their final three games.
The Eagles are getting solid play front to back. Up front, senior Jade Canak has come on strong after a slow start and is scoring well. She's using her speed more judiciously, according to coach Ryan Nored.
"She's become more patient," Nored said. "Now she is either looking for a teammate or beating the goalie one-on-one."
At midfield, junior Avery Bond, senior Emma Wilkinson and sophomore Emma McCormac are offensive catalysts. Wilkinson and Bond are veteran players who see the field well and create space for themselves and their teammates while McCormac has been a pleasant surprise.
"The last four or five games, she's turned it on," Nored said. "She can place the ball on a dime."
In the back, goalkeeper Cassandra Ray has improved steadily since taking over in the fourth game of the year for Mattie Lajoie after she sustained a concussion.
"She saved us (Tuesday) night," Nored said of Erskine's 2-0 win over MCI. "MCI should have beaten us. Cassandra stopped two breakaways."
