Saints march on

Lewiston, ME– A second half of the doubleheader at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee was suppose to an offensive showcase. St. Dom’s coming in was one of the better offensive teams and Falmouth had one of the premiere talents in the state in Mike Chase.

“4-3 was pretty reasonable,” says St. Dom’s Head Coach Steve Ouellette. The Saints won a tight 3-1 game to face Waterville Saturday Night at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee.

Shayne Curtis who had a goals against average of 3.81 heading into the contest made 13 saves in the victory.

“He stepped it up tonight,” says Ouellette. “He had to make some glove saves tonight.”

“I thought we got the puck high on him in the first,” says Scott Rousseau, Falmouth’s head coach.

“I was able to see the puck the entire game,” says St. Dom’s goaltender Shayne Curtis.

Spencer Teixeira would end the deadlock, 2:07 into the third as he was able to beat Jay Hurdmann. Trevor Haefele got the lone tally on the play.

“Talk about a two way game, he (Haefele) showed that tonight,” says Oullette. “Texeira took the right shot and puts it in the goal.”

Casey Parker would tip in a Cam Brown shot from the point at the 10:54 marker.

“We felt if we got two up on them, that it would be our game,” Ouellette said.

Falmouth would fight back with 62 seconds to play when Dixon Pike would score from a Mike Chase shot the blue line.

The Yachtsmen would get another chance seconds later. “We got the puck to the point and we had a shot,” says Rousseau.

The Yachtsmen best chance of the game was when Mike Chase rang one of the post in the second.

“We got real quality scoring chances, ours rung off the post (in the second.,” Rousseau says.

St. Dom’s will be going for their 25th Class A State Title in their school history. Waterville will look for their 20th.
