LEWISTON—There was ecstasy and there was agony.
There were great plays and fluky bounces and after nearly 60 minutes of palpitating hockey were in the books, one of the most memorable games in tournament history had flashed before our eyes.
From Michael Hoffer at The Forecaster:
When two powerhouse boys’ hockey teams get together, the difference is often determined by who scores first.
Saturday evening at Troubh Ice Arena, it would be Cheverus scoring first, as well as second, third and fourth as it opened up a commanding lead and had its way with host Cape Elizabeth in an intriguing interclass showdown.
Sophomore Jackson Wilson put the Stags on top at 4:32 of the first period and Cheverus wasn’t done yet.
From The Forecaster:
BIDDEFORD—Two cousins who have played a lot of hockey together in their young lives produced a goal which allowed the Cheverus/Kennebunk co-op girls’ hockey team to end St. Dom’s’ lengthy win streak Saturday afternoon at the Harold Alfond Forum on the campus of the University of New England.
Cheverus/Kennebunk, which lost by nine goals to the two-time champion Saints a year ago, came out strong and took a 1-0 lead midway through the first period when junior Zoe Mazur set up freshman Emma McCauley, her cousin, for a goal.
Cheverus/Kennebunk had ample opportunities to extend their advantage, but never did and while St. Dom’s had some looks of its own, Cheverus/Kennebunk controlled the puck most of the way and relied on its defense and senior goalie Anna Smith to frustrate the Saints as it went on to an inspirational 1-0 victory.
Cheverus/Kennebunk improved to 6-0 on the season, dropped St. Dom’s to 3-1 and in the process, ended the Saints’ state record, three-year win streak at 29 games.
