Coming into the 2014-2015 season, the Cape Elizabeth Capers wanted a challenging Class A schedule to better help them prepare for the rigors of Class B. Their first challenge proved to be a fruitless one, as the Capers were handed their first loss of the season at the hands of Cheverus on Saturday night at Portland Ice Arena, 5-2. 

The Capers would face adversity in the opening moments of the game. Just under 3 minutes in, Peyton Weatherbie was handed a five-minute major for hitting from behind, putting Cheverus' dangerous power play to work for the majority of the first period. The Capers, behind courageous defending and stalwart goaltending from Ross Leblond, would escape the penalty kill unharmed. Then, with just 4:40 to play in the frame, Curtis Guimond came streaking down right right wing and fired a shot over Cheverus goaltender Kyle Severance to give his side a 1-0 advantage.

The lead would remain 1-0 into the second period until James Kane levelled the score for the Stags at the 5:03 mark on their 36th shot of the game. Cheverus would score again with 3:39 to play in the second, giving Cheverus a 2-1 lead heading into the second intermission on a James Hannigan goal.

Cape Elizabeth began to show signs of wear in the third, as their tired legs chased a tying goal. Matt O'Leary would break Caper hearts at the 6:31 mark, as the Stags converted for the first time on the power play and extended their lead to 3-1. The Stags would put the Capers to the sword just :32 later when Quinton Farr  fired a shot home from the right point to stretch the advantage to an insurmountable 4-1. 

Cape Elizabeth coach Matt Buotte would call a timeout after the 4th Cheverus goal. The Capers came out of the break with more tenacity, but were unable to score until just inside of two minutes remaining. Tom Gleason would bury a rebound past Severance to cut the deficit to 4-2. It was Gleason's first career varsity goal. Peyton Weatherbie would add an assist on the play for his third point in as many games.

The Capers would pull Leblond, who made 49 saves in the losing effort, with a minute and a half remaining. The Capers generated a brief attack before James Hannigan scored his second goal of the night into an empty net to round out the scoring. 

The Capers fell to 2-1-0 with the loss, while Cheverus improved on their hot start at 3-0-0. Cheverus has also picked up wins over Lewiston and South Portland in the young season. The Stags went 1-for-5 on the power play, while Cape Elizabeth sputtered at 0-for-3. The Stags held a 54-20 shots on goal advantage. The Capers are back in action on Thursday, December 18th when they face Maranacook at Portland Ice Arena. Puck drops at 6:00 p.m.

Losing for the first time is not an easy thing to accept. I remember when I first lost. It was during a quiz bee in our class. I came in second place and I remembered how much I cried that night when I got home. I couldn't accept that I didn't win because I exerted my 100% effort and I did my best to win. I was even angry at everyone for no particular reason at all. I was angry with myself too because I have disappointed myself. But I realized that if I would always do this every single time that I would lose in life, then I'll never learn anything. I realized that life is not always about winning. Life is about winning and losing at the same time.
