    The Presque Isle Wildcat soccer teams had little trouble capturing home wins over the weekend.
    The PI boys downed Central of East Corinth Friday, 5-0, and are now 3-0-1 heading into action  this week with contests scheduled today at Old Town and Saturday at home against Bucksport.

    Josh Allen found the back of the net twice, while Russ Mortland added a goal and two assists to lead the Wildcats. Dillon Kingsbury had seven saves for the shutout in goal.
    The Lady ‘Cats played the following afternoon and were a 7-0 winner. Six different players scored, with Kayla Legassie the only PI player with two goals on the day. Tessa Ward, Jodie Buckley, Sarah Porter, Hannah Cheney and Katrina Whittier added single tallies and Kelsey Park saved both shots she faced for the shutout.
    PI is now 3-1 on the season.
    The Easton boys blanked Central Aroostook Thursday, 1-0, thanks to Holden Turner’s goal with 25:36 to play in the match. It was Easton’s 10th win of the season against just two losses.
    Ashland blanked both Van Buren and Washburn last week  and is now 6-1. Jacob Paradis had two goals in each contest.
    In girls’ play, Washburn and Ashland battled to a 0-0 tie Monday in Washburn. Taylor Baker of Ashland and Meghan Saucier of Washburn both recorded shutouts.
    Morgan Berube’s first-half goal stood up in last Wednesday’s 1-0 win by Washburn over Katahdin.
