Brunswick High School had lost both regular season meetings to Camden Hills and was outscored 5-1.

But the fifth-seeded Dragons scored twice in 38 seconds late in the first half and went on to upset the second-seeded Windjammers 2-1 in their Class A North championship game on Wednesday night at Messalonskee High School in Oakland.

Gus Silverman opened the scoring with 7:31 left in the first half and Iain Clendening added a penalty kick 38 seconds later after a Dragon was hauled down in the penalty area.

Junior midfielder Clendening said they were anxious to avenge the two losses.

“We had a chip on our shoulders. The second time they beat us we had four starters out [due to injury]. We were healthy tonight,” said Clendening, who added that Wednesday’s performance was one of their best of the season.

“I thought we were the better team for much of the game but you also need some luck and we didn’t get it tonight,” said Camden Hills coach Ryan Hurley. “They played a different formation against us and had an extra defender. They clogged the middle up.”

Brunswick coach Mark Roma said they played a 4-2-3-1 formation instead of a 4-4-2 to try to contain Camden Hills’ midfielders.

Brunswick earned its first trip to the state final since 2009 and will take a 14-3-1 record into Saturday’s state final at Massabesic High School in Waterboro against Marshwood of South Berwick.

Camden Hills concluded a 12-4-1 campaign.

It was just the fourth time this season they haven’t scored at least two goals in a game.  

Cameron Brown pulled a goal back for Camden Hills when he beat goalie Brady Laforge with a 24-yard free kick with 22:12 left in the second half.

Brown’s goal came against the run of play as the Dragons rode the momentum of their two-goal outburst into the second half.

Brunswick carried the play in the second half as they looked for a third goal.

But Brown’s free kick gave the Windjammers some life and they began pressing for the equalizer.

However, after a short span of dominance, the Dragons regained control of the game and had some good chances to extend the lead but couldn’t capitalize.

David Nzuzzi nearly iced it with a scintillating bicycle kick but it sailed just wide.

Samuel Brownawelll had a low shot from long distance in the waning moments of the game bute Laforge made a comfortable save.

Silverman’s goal was set up by Jack Banks, who made a run down the left flank and slid a low cross to Silverman. The ball deflected off his foot and rolled past Henry Pharris.

“It went in off our defender,” said Hurley.

Just seconds later, Clendening converted calmly from the penalty spot to give him a goal in every one of Brunswick’s four playoff wins.

Roma was elated with his team’s performance.

He said Tommy Labbe turned in a stellar performance in anchoring the defensive effort and Banks was also outstanding.

Adam Porter, Chris Kousky and A.J. Wolverton teamed up with Labbe in the back to limit Camden Hills’ scoring opportunities.

Laforge made two saves on eight shot attempts and Pharris had four on 14 Brunswick shots.
