Falmouth, Greely reach boys' hockey regional finals

A defending regional champion has been sent home, but two other local boys’ hockey teams remained standing at press time.

In Class A South, Falmouth, the top seed after a 14-3-1 regular season, earned a bye into the semifinals, then downed No. 4 Portland/Deering, 5-2, in the semifinals Saturday.

The Yachtsmen trailed early, then took the lead behind a pair of goals from Brendan Hickey.

“(Brendan’s) a force out there and he’s a great dynamic player and he’s definitely one of our big leaders right now,” said Falmouth coach Deron Barton.

Class A South: Falmouth in a similar place; Cheverus trying to be the king of South for the first time since 2006

... "We prepare the same way like we have all season long," Barton said. "I think if we execute our game plan and we have a solid commitment to playing as a team we will be fine."

Cheverus is 15-5 and they put up 79 goals this season while allowing 48. Since the new year, the Stags have won 13 of 15 games with the only two losses coming against Falmouth.

Coach Dan Lucas likes what he saw from his team in a 4-3 loss to Falmouth in the final regular season contest for both teams.

"Go out and play them hard. They are a good team," Lucas said after the 4-3 overtime win over Scarborough Saturday. "We had a really good game against them at the end of the year. We skated well with them and its going to be an up and down game. The boys are feeling up (to it) and the trains are on the tracks."

Class A North: Lewiston faces a familiar playoff foe in Bangor for the regional title

...If The Rams have any chance to pull off an upset, goaltender Derek Fournier will need to be on top of his game like he was on Saturday where he made 24 saves.

"Derek stood on his head," Paradis said. "That was probably the difference-maker in the game was our goaltender. It proves he's a senior and got us there to these games every year. This is the first time he wins in the semifinals for us. You really have to look at him and say he carried us in those low moments and got us through it."

For the Blue Devils, they faced a primer on Saturday if Fournier is on his same game that got him drafted by the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and by the L/A Fighting Spirit of the North American 3 Hockey League this past summer. The Blue Devils faced Kyle Welsh of St. Dom's who stopped 51 of Lewiston's 55 shots on Saturday.

Waterville takes Class B North in overtime classic over Old Town/Orono

****************************************************************

Waterville rallies to edge Old Town-Orono in OT for ‘B’ North hockey title

... in the overtime, the Purple Panthers had a sustained forecheck and Wentworth, a 43-goal scorer, missed a wide-open net when his one-timer off a Jackson Aldrich pass hit the outside of the near post.

But Roderigue tracked the puck down behind the net and passed it to Wentworth in the low slot and his one-timer snuck through Gasaway and carried into the net.

“After I hit the post, I knew I had to get the puck back,” said Wentworth. “Our goal was to keep the puck in the zone and get as many shots as we could. I got back to the slot and just whacked at it and it happened to go in. It went through [Gasaway’s] armpit.”

Wentworth said the comeback is a credit to their perseverance.

“We have huge heart. We’re a family on and off the ice,” said Wentworth who called Old Town-Orono a “great team. They played great.”

**************************************************************

Waterville downs Old Town/Orono in OT for B North title
Justin Wentworth scores in extra session to lead Purple Panthers to their 2nd straight title.

... “I think we wore them down. Our guys just kept battling,” Waterville coach Dennis Martin said. “That’s what they do. They don’t quit. With the leadership we have with these guys, there’s no quit in them.”

Waterville was able to force overtime when Andrew Roderigue scored with just over five minutes remaining in regulation, capping a third period that saw the teams combine for five goals. Each time the Panthers were able to finally tie the game — with Cooper Hart’s seventh goal of the season at 1:38 or with Chase Wheeler’s sixth of the year — Old Town/Orono (15-3-2) answered on its very next shift.

Jacob Gallon, who had a hand in every Black Bear goal, put his team in front for the final time at 5-4 with 9:02 left

Lewiston Defends Class A North Region Hockey Title, Bangor Runner-up

*******************************************************************

Lewiston shuts out Bangor for second straight ‘A’ North hockey title

... The second-seeded Rams (12-8) finally put a shot on net in the first minute of the second period, but much of the frame focused on the other end of the ice, where Bangor senior goalie Derek Fournier did everything he could to keep his team in it. Fournier denied Bisson on a breakaway at the midway point of the period, among other, acrobatic saves.

“Derek’s been a fixture in that program for the last three or four years and so we knew what we were going to get,” Lewiston coach Jamie Belleau said. “We have an approach we like to take with him, and the kids executed it and they were able to get some by him.”

Fournier couldn’t keep Lewiston quiet for long in the second. Jean-Luc Dostie got the Blue Devils back on the scoreboard with just under five minutes left in the period on a rebound of a Nick Bisson shot.

“The dirty goals are very important because the first shot’s hard to get by him, so you have to get the rebound goals,” Bossie said.

Falmouth is headed to States

Falmouth overcomes Cheverus to win regional championship

LEWISTON—Tuesday evening, for the second year in a row, Falmouth’s high-powered offense was coming up empty in the regional final.

A year after being blanked by Scarborough at the Colisee with a trip to the state game on the line, the top-ranked Yachtsmen were on the ropes again against second-seeded Cheverus in the boys’ hockey Class A South Final, as nothing was going their way.

The Stags took an early lead on a goal from senior captain Kieran Conley and with 6:02 to play in the second period, Cheverus added a second goal, as junior Cam Dube finished. The goal was initially waved off, but was eventually allowed and it appeared that the underdogs had all the momentum.

Falmouth rallies to win Class A South title
The Yachtsmen score three straight goals to beat Cheverus, 3-

... Garrett Tracey, Theo Hembre and Reece Armitage scored for Falmouth (16-3-1), which will play Lewiston (19-1), the defending champion, in the state final Saturday night.

On Tuesday, Falmouth got off to a slow start “for whatever reason.”

“I can’t even figure it out yet,” Barton said. “They were nervous, overly confident, over-prepared – who knows?”
