ROCHESTER — Noble/Wells has played its best hockey in the third period all season long. That was the case again on Tuesday night in the Knights’ postseason opener. Third-seeded Noble/Wells scored thrice in the third to turn a tight game into a rout, en route to a 6-3 win over No. 6 South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete (South Portland herein) in the Western Maine Class A high school hockey quarterfinals. “We come out strong in the first period, and for some reason we usually come out flat-footed in the second,” said Noble junior forward Dean Pratt, who notched a hat trick to add to his region-leading goal total. “But in the third, that’s usually when we pick it up, and I think that’s what happened here tonight. We came out strong and put it to them.”...
NORTH BERWICK, Maine — There’s the long-held belief that it’s hard to beat a team three times in one season. But that’s the task facing Noble/Wells if it hopes to return to the semifinal round of the Western Maine Class A high school hockey tournament. No. 3 Noble/Wells (15-3) will host No. 6 South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete (South Portland herein) tonight at 6:30 at the Rochester Arena for a quarterfinal game. South Portland is 9-8. Noble/Wells won both regular-season meetings by scores of 8-4 and 6-3. “That’s what makes me nervous,” said Noble/Wells coach Keith St. Cyr, about the prospect of needing a third win over South Portland to advance. “I don’t want us going in thinking this will be easy. We usually play them twice, so there’s a lot of familiarity. Whoever plays the best game will win.” Noble/Wells goes into tonight’s game as the winners of nine straight...

Teams that play tougher schedules can lose out on playoff positioning to teams with easier roads.
Biddeford High played one of the toughest boys’ hockey schedules in the state this season. The Tigers (10-6-2) are the only Western Class A team to beat all the other top teams in the region. Yet Biddeford is the No. 5 seed in the Western A tournament, which begin Tuesday. The Tigers play on the road in a quarterfinal game against No. 4 Scarborough (10-5-3). Meanwhile, the Noble/Wells co-op team is the No. 3 seed, despite not playing any of the top teams in the state. The Knights (15-3) are the home team against South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete (10-8). “As for seedings, it is clear that the system needs to be looked at,” said Biddeford Coach Rich Reissfelder. “I’m not sure there is a perfect system – especially with co-op teams and the constant ups and downs of talent levels. “But this isn’t the first time the seedings seem out of whack.” Reissfelder has a sympathetic ear in Noble Coach Keith St. Pierre...
DOVER — The Noble/Wells boys hockey team is steamrolling toward the Western Maine Class A tournament. And with Wednesday night’s 11-1 rout of rival Marshwood/Traip at the Dover Arena, the Knights know they can score. “We wanted to come quick out of the gate,” Noble coach Keith St. Cyr said. “We’ve struggled this season coming out in the first period, doing what we’re supposed to do. So I like to see that we set the pace really quick.”Noble/Wells’s Dean Pratt scored four goals, including the 100th of his career with a shorthanded tally in the first period that put the Knights up 3-0...
AUBURN – The Edward Little Red Eddies were able to withstand a late third period comeback to secure a 5-2 win against the Noble/Wells Knights Saturday afternoon at the Norway Savings Bank Arena. The first period of the game saw no goals and just two penalties. The Red Eddies were able to manage nine shots during the period, but all were blocked aside by Noble goaltender Wyatt Ricker, who ended up with 24 saves. Noble was only able to accrue three shots in the period, most of which came from just inside the blue line. Noble came into the game with a 6-2-0 record, ranking 5th in the Western Class A...
ROCHESTER — Brian Doucette would have been very proud of his alma mater this weekend. The boys of Noble/Wells hockey team were crowned champions of the annual holiday tournament held in honor of Doucette, who passed away in a 2007 automobile accident. Doucette graduated from Noble high school in 2006. The Knights beat the Somersworth/Coe-Brown Bearcats 4-2 behind a solid goaltending performance by Nate Paul (33 saves on 35 shots) Saturday night at Rochester Arena. “If it wasn't for our goalie, Nate, it would have been a whole different ballgame,” said Noble/Wells coach Keith St. Cyr. Pembroke Academy beat Marshwood/Traip in the consolation game, 3-2...
