Maniacs Drop BA 4-2
Bridgton Academy "B" Hockey Team traveled to Lewiston Saturday evening to take on the Lewiston Maniacs U-18 AAA Midgets. The Wolverines came out flying and peppered the Maniacs goalie with repeated shots. "I wanted our guys to put pucks to the net and hammer in rebounds. We don't have that true sniper on the team and have to earn every scoring opportunity" said Head Coach Mike Meserve. BA scored first when Sam Parent (Hinesburg, VT/CVU) banged in a John Delpadre (North Providence, RI/Smithfield High) shot from the point. The Maniacs began to unleash some shots on Goalie Derek Spencer (Rochester, NH/Spalding High) and finally beating Spencer with a Power Play goal. For the night, Spencer turned aside 22 of the 26 shots he faced.
Down 3-1, BA crept closer when Dan MacInnes(Plymouth, MA/Plymouth North High) scored his first of the year. That would be as close as it would get as the Maniacs added an insurance goal late in the game. "Overall, we have some things to work on. Its a long season and hopefully the boys will continue to learn and develop. We didn't play with a sense of urgency and need to be more consistent with our physical play" said Meserve.
The "B" Teams next game will be in Northfield, VT when they take on the Norwich University Club Hockey Team Friday 7:00pm.
