St. Dominic, Falmouth to meet for state title
The 20-0 Saints and 16-4 Yachtsmen will face off Saturday at the Colisee.

LEWISTON — Devon Sarazin describes the Falmouth High girls’ hockey season as one of peaks and valleys.

“No matter what happened in the game before, we kept pushing,” said Sarazin, a senior forward. “We’ve really come together lately. I think we’re peaking at the right time.”

For the third time in six years, the Yachtsmen (16-4) are playing for the state championship. At 3 p.m. Saturday they will face their toughest challenge in St. Dominic (20-0), the defending state champion, at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee.

St. Dom's, Falmouth collide in state final at Colisee

... "It means everything," Falmouth coach Rob Carrier said. "They've been to the regional final every year, they've seen the struggles when we lose, and they've seen the highs when we win it. To get back to the states, they know it's not a guarantee, so they appreciate it. The group of seniors, they set out to reach the state final this year."

The Yachtsmen were the top-seeded team in the South this year after going 14-4 during the regular season. That slate included a 6-0 loss to St. Dom's and a 3-2 loss to Scarborough in one of the two regular-season matchups between the teams.

"Falmouth's a good team," St. Dom's coach Paul Gosselin said. "I watched them play a couple times, we got to play them a couple weeks ago, and they got quick, little, fast team. They do well. They have to. They ended up in first place, and they're in the finals. That probably says a lot."

Saints' Winslow saving her best for state final

... "It's obviously hard because I have to always pay attention, because the other team can always get breakaways, or they can come down and shoot at random times," Winslow said. "I can't, like, zone out."

"One of the tough things for Payton is that there's some games where she sees three shots, and other games where she could see a tough 15. And that requires a lot of focus," St. Dom's coach Paul Gosselin said. "When she first got here that was a little bit difficult for her, but now I think she's actually matured and managed to deal with that at a much better level."

w/ post-game video: St. Dom’s caps perfect season
The Saints roll past Falmouth 10-2 to win their second straight state championship.

... “We were just really comfortable – the nerves weren’t really high,” St. Dominic Coach Paul Gosselin said. “They went to business and that was it. I’m just extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished.”

The Yachtsmen finished 16-5. They have lost in three state finals.

“I’m sure it was a bit of nerves, but I think it had more to do with how quickly they got that first goal,” Falmouth Coach Rob Carrier said. “The sequence of those three goals just dug us into a hole we couldn’t get out of

In the crease: By the numbers, St. Dom's win off the charts

... Eight goals. Eight scoring plays. Per game.

And in the biggest game of the year, on the biggest stage, St. Dom’s eclipsed its average, shoveling an even 10 goals into the Falmouth net to earn a second consecutive state title.

This one, perhaps, more special than the previous, if only because the team’s 21 wins were complemented by a ‘0’ in the loss column, and another under “ties.” A year ago, the Saints finished strong after an early-season loss to Greely. And the Rangers, to their credit, gave the Saints their best games this season, as well, holding them to three goals in the regular season in a 3-2 St. Dom’s win. Edward Little/Leavitt/Poland also held the Saints to three goals in a 3-2 game.

But neither the Red Hornets nor the Rangers were on the ice Saturday.

St. Dom's scorches Falmouth for second straight girls' hockey title

... "My line has a lot of chemistry. Just going down, I knew that I was going to be open, and the pass just came and I put it in," Lutrzykowski said. "Bugsy was there. She said I put it in. I think she tipped it, but I'll let it be me."

Emma Theriault ripped a shot from the left point over Hurdman 27 seconds later, then Kesaris made it 3-0 just 4:04 into the game.

"We want to start quick and see how fast we can pop them in, and it came quick today," St. Dom's coach Paul Gosselin said.

Falmouth used its timeout at that point to try and get its bearings straight.
