Lewiston, Me– Revenge is sweet. Kennebunk defeated the Falmouth Yachtsmen last year in the regional semi finals. This time the tables were reversed. Falmouth defeated Kennebunk 4-1.

“Revenge is always nice,” says Falmouth senior forward Mike Chase.

“Last year was tough,” says Scott Rousseau Head Coach of Falmouth. “Kennebunk was a good team.”

After a great save by Jordan Kadlik to keep the game scoreless, Dan Hanley potted one home, 6:30 into the game. Mike Chase notched the lone assist.

“It was a confidence builder,” says Rousseau on getting an early lead. “We were surprised that they upset Thornton. We respected them.”

“We wanted to get on them quick,” says Chase. “We wanted to outwork them.”

“It would have been nice to score early,” says Don Hill Kennebunk’s Head Coach.

Just over six minutes later, Chase chopped one. Brandon Turttle fired the initial shot on net and got the lone assist.

“I had dive in but Dixon took a nice shot,” said Chase.

“He a far better person then he’s a hockey player,” Rousseau said on his Travis Roy Award nominee. “And he’s a very special hockey player.”

1:19 into the third, Mitchel Tapley gave Falmouth the 4-0 lead. Ford Bohrmann got the lone helper.

“We did look tired but it wasn’t from that,” said Hill on playing a quadruple overtime game Tuesday night.

Kennebunk got on the board 6:11 into the third. Kevin Airoldi and Patrick Graydon set the goal up.

“I was proud of them on getting as far as they did,” says Hill.
