The Ocean City High School boys soccer team defeated Wildwood Catholic today and the girls soccer team notched a win over Lower Cape May.
But the Raider field hockey team lost a 2-1 decision to Mainland, ending Ocean City’s 55-game win streak against Cape-Atlantic League opponents.
Mainland only managed three shots against Ocean City but scored twice. The Raiders got off 20 shots but only Haleigh Flukey scored.
The last CAL team to defeat the Raiders was Egg Harbor Township on Sept. 30, 2013 when EHT won, 3-0. Oceean City had shut out 44 straight CAL opponents. The last goal against them by a CAL team was on Sept. 12, 2014 when Ocean City defeated Absegami, 9-1.
The boys soccer team used goals by Anthony Inserra, Hunter Paone and Matt Brook (below) to defeat the Crusaders, 3-1, and improve to 3-0.
And the girls soccer team (2-0), playing its first game without the injured Tori Rolls, got three goals from freshman Faith Slimmer in a 6-0 win over Lower Cape May.
All three teams are back in action Wednesday – boys soccer hosts Oakcrest at Tennessee Avenue, field hockey plays Atlantic City at Trish LeFever Field and girls soccer goes to Oakcrest.
Tomorrow, both cross country teams will face Millville, Atlantic City and Mainland in a quad meet at the Millville Motorsports Park. The OCHS boys have won 80 straight cross country meets. The Raider girls lost to Mainland last year by one point, their only loss in the last six years.
