Three goals were scored within the first ten minutes of the game, and then three more goals during remainder of the half. With two minutes left in the first half, Lily Tedford scored for MSSM. After the half, the MSSM girls came out much stronger and won the second half. Lily got the first goal of the half assisted by Samantha Zwecker. Wisdom scored shortly after MSSM's goal.

On Saturday, September 9, the MSSM cross country team traveled to the University of Maine at Presque Isle to compete in the Presque Isle Invitational meet. Many teams from the state traveled up and this meet was not for just class C. Several class B teams competed alongside MSSM. Additionally the increase in the number of people allowed there to be both Junior Varsity and Varsity races for boys and girls.
The MSSM Cross Country Team competed in their first meet of the season hosted by Houlton/GHCA. It was a relay style race with team divisions in coed, girls, and boys with two team members splitting the 3-mile course. MSSM was impressive sweeping the top spot in each division
On Monday the MSSM boys scrimmaged against Caribou JV. Although there were many shots on goal, neither team had scored for most of the first period. Finally the MSSM Penguins got the first goal of the game, scored by Will Perkins. Unfortunately Caribou scored, tying the game. In the second period, Tobyn Blatt scored giving MSSM the lead. Caribou tied the score up again. Then, in the last few minutes of the game Caribou scored once more, giving them the lead. MSSM tried to score again but were unsuccessful...
The soccer and cross country teams have been busy practicing for the past week and a half. There are roughly thirty-five soccer athletes and twenty-five cross country athletes. These are great turn outs as these are strictly MSSM teams, but there are many more boy soccer players than girl soccer players. The girls have just enough people to field a team, so they could use more players.
