Waterville moves on

Lewiston, ME– The red light didn’t go on for Rams when they needed it. Joey Seccareccia looked like he scored late in the third. Bangor thought the puck went in but officials though otherwise.

“It was in,” said Bangor Head Coach Ted Taylor. “I will look at the video, it will be in. I guess they are human.”

“They (referees) said it hit the water bottle,” said Darren Casey-Covell who was instrumental in Bangor’s win on Wednesday night against Cony.

Eric Aldrich would put the contest away at the 9:49 mark in the third. It was an unassisted effort.

“We knew that we can win without him,” said Eric Aldrich on missing Shawn Lee who’s out for the season.

“We let them make mistakes,” Aldrich later said.

Bangor came out firing in the first few minutes. Alain Reese would beat Waterville goaltender Nolan MacDowell top shelf just 2:07 into the contest. Nick George fed him the puck and was credited with the only assist.

Nick George would add a tally of his own when he found away MacDowell who struggled early on.

After Waterville peppered the Rams goalie Zach Hamilton, Joey Seccareccia tipped in a Chad Kelly shot to give Bangor the 3-0 lead.

“I don’t know. We needed to get the next one,” said Nick DuBlois Waterville’s forward.

They did just that.

The Purple Panthers would answer back with five seconds left in the stanza with Eric Aldrich’s marker. Cam Bishop got the lone assist.

“Those always hurt,” said Taylor on late goals.

The only tally in the second came from Tim Locke at the 11:38 mark after he stuffed it past Hamilton. Eric Aldrich and Nick Dublois set the goal up.

Nick DeBulois would tie the contest up with 9:16 remaining in the game. The assists went to Eric Aldrich and David Cook.

Nolan MacDonald made 29 saves in the victory. It was the first time that he allowed three goals in one period. Zach Hamilton made 35 saves in the losing effort.
