With under two weeks remaining in the regular season, five Hancock County teams remain very much in the race to qualify for post-season play in girls’ soccer.

In Eastern Maine Class B, 13 teams will advance and the 5-4-1 Ellsworth Eagles currently are ranked sixth and the 5-3-1 Mount Desert Island Trojans seventh.

In Class C, with 11 teams slated to advance, the 6-3-1 Sumner Tigers are ranked fourth, the 5-5-1 George Stevens Academy Eagles are fifth and the 2-6-3 Bucksport Golden Bucks are ninth.

Ellsworth’s injury-plagued Eagles slipped on spot in the rankings following losses this week to the number two Hermon Hawks and the fourth ranked Caribou Vikings.

After a 1-0 upset loss to Bucksport, Sumner’s Tigers picked up some key tournament points with a 3-1 win over the sixth-ranked Washington Academy Raiders.

The GSA Eagles helped themselves with wins over Sumner and Bucksport, and the Golden Bucks were boosted back into playoff contention with their win over the Tigers.
