A competitive and composed Cape Elizabeth JV team skated to a 4-1 victory over St. Dom's on Friday night at Casco Bay Arena in Falmouth, giving new hire Bill Guide his first win as JV head coach. Hans Croft's two goals bookended second period goals by Andrew Pellechia and Alec Riggle as the relentless Capers dictated play from start to finish.

Croft would open the scoring midway through the first period when defenseman Alex Narvaez would release a low, hard wrist shot that Croft would redirect in to nudge the Capers to a 1-0 lead. The score would remain until the second period, when the top line would strike again--this time Andrew Pellechia finishing off a Jack Roy-Becker feed to stretch the Cape lead to 2-0. Riggle would push the Capers to a commanding 3-0 lead late in the second when his wrist shot from the top of the circles found it's way between the legs of the St. Dom's goalkeeper. Croft would finish the scoring early in the third when he received a brilliant cross-seam pass which he deposited for his third goal in the opening two games.

Goaltender Garrett Mello was just moments away from a shutout before surrendering for the only time late in the third period. The Capers improve to 1-1-0 on the season and will next be in action on December 23rd when they battle Falmouth. Puck drops at 6:40 p.m. at Casco Bay Arena.

The biggest thing for me is the passion that I've always had for hockey. I remember growing up, no matter what I did in life, my parents always told me to try to do my best at it and be my best. I can say going through different things that that passion is the most important part. It's not skills or talent or any of that stuff. Hockey is a unique sport in the sense that you need each and every guy helping each other and pulling in the same direction to be successful.
