ROCKPORT — The Camden Hills varsity and junior varsity ice hockey teams hit the ice Saturday, Jan. 26 against Brewer at the Midcoast Recreation Center in Rockport.
Varsity: Brewer 2, Camden Hills 1
Camden Hills scored its lone goal in the opening period, while Brewer scored in both the second and third periods.
Bryce Tyler scored the lone goal for the Windjammers, while Trey Baker and Nick Lamprecht (Baker assist) found the back of the net for the Witches.
Jackson Bernier guarded the goalie net for Camden Hills and recorded 13 saves, while Tyler St. Lawrence tallied 25 for Brewer.
“Bryce Tyler continues to be a leader on and off the ice with his explosive speed and dedication to playing tough in all three zones of the ice [and] junior Ben Wells again works the ice and the puck for a full three periods,” said Camden Hills head coach John Magri. “The checking line of Rory Carlson, Nicholas Tausek, and Hayden Thibeault continue to lead the team in plus/minus by getting the puck deep into the Brewer end and grinding the tough areas to keep the puck in the offensive zone for valuable seconds and minutes.
With the loss, Camden Hills’ record now sits at 7-5.
“Certainly a disappointing loss as we have had three losses in a row in tight hockey games,” Magri said. “The team knows from the tight scores that they can bring a game to any team in the league but we will have to execute better all 45 minutes of the game in order to get back in the [win] column.”
Camden Hills now turns its attention to a Saturday, Feb. 2 home contest against Presque Isle that will begin at 6 p.m.
Junior Varsity: Camden Hills 4, Brewer 1
Scoring for the Windjammers were Charlie Griebel (Anna Griebel, Hayden Thibeault assist), James Lynch (unassisted), Rory Carlson (unassisted) and Anna Griebel (empty net).
Information on the lone Brewer goal was not available.
The Windjammers will take the ice again on Saturday, Feb. 9 against Waterville/Winslow, also known as the Kennebec Riverhawks, at Colby College’s Alfond Arena at 1 p.m. The team’s season finale contest will be Friday, Feb. 15 at home against Gardiner at 4:20 p.m.
