Host Oceanside led by impressive efforts from Norton, Kaewthong, Ripley, others

ROCKLAND — Michael Norton Jr. returned the opening kick 73 yards for the first of his four touchdowns as host Oceanside defeated defending state Class D champion Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield 38-14 on Friday night, Sept. 1 in a season-opening high school football game at cool, windy Wasgatt Field.

Oceanside led 14-6 after the first quarter, 20-6 at halftime and 26-14 after three stanzas. The Mariners added 12 points and Huskies 14 in the fourth quarter.

Norton scored on a 74-yard pass play from Titus Kaewthong in the opening quarter to put the Mariners ahead 14-0 before the Huskies got on the board when Kempton Roy scored from two yards.

Norton also added scoring runs of 46 and 58 yards in the contest.
