It was a tale of two teams at Harold Alfond Arena in Biddeford on Friday night, as the Cape Elizabeth Capers early dominance gave way to a disappointing third period that saw Kennebunk scored three unanswered goals and ultimately topple the visitors, 3-2.

It was just the fourth game of the season for the Capers, who were coming off an 11-0 drubbing of Maranacook/Winthrop 9 days earlier. The Capers first contest of 2017 started brightly, with waves of pressure in the Kennebunk zone. Despite not scoring in the first period, Cape Elizabeth outshot the Rams 12-5. 



The Capers rolled their strong start into the second period with a continuation of their relentless attack. Kennebunk goaltender Spencer Desrochers was able to fend off the attack for much of the period until just past the halfway mark of the middle frame. Phil Tarling would force the puck to the front of the net where junior forward Ryan Collins was able to force the puck behind Desrochers and nudge the Capers to a 1-0 lead. It was the first goal of the season for Collins at the 8:31 mark of the period.

After a few more good shifts in the Rams end, the Capers doubled their lead with 3:18 to go. Peyton Weatherbie would take a feed from sophomore Jackson Woods and deposit it past Desrochers on a goalmouth scramble. It was the third of the season for Weatherbie. Jeb Boeschenstein notched the secondary assist on the play. The Capers would head to the dressing room with a 2-0 advantage and a 23-11 lead in shots, and with the end of the second period came the end of the Capers good fortune--and good play.

Kennebunk would find the spark they desperately needed just 2:44 into the third period, when senior Jakub Simikak would bury a rebound on a 2-on-2 after Capers goaltender Peter Haber was not able to glove initial shot cleanly. The Rams would strike again with 7:50 to play, with Whitten finding the scoresheet again after a breakdown in the Cape Elizabeth zone. Walter Robinson and Justin Wiggins received assists on the play.

With the score level at two, Capers coach Matt Buotte would call a timeout to settle his charges. It would prove ineffective, however, as the Rams completed their comeback just 43 seconds after the Cape Elizabeth timeout. Third line winger Christian Putnam would squeak the go-ahead goal past Haber to nudge the Rams out to their first lead of the contest, with Robinson registering his second assist of the evening. 

The Capers would continue to mount pressure in the Kennebunk zone but Desrochers was up to the task in the third, turning aside all six Cape Elizabeth chances. The Capers would pull Haber with just under 90 seconds to go, but the Rams were able to withstand the attack without any notable scoring chances, giving the Rams their fifth win in their last six tries against Cape Elizabeth.

NOTES: There were no power play attempts for either team in the contest...Cape Elizabeth outshot Kennebunk 29-17; they have outshot their opponents 154-58 over their first four games despite a 1-3-0 record...Cape Elizabeth is 0-5-1 in their last six tries against Kennebunk, with their last win coming in January of 2014...Capers senior left the game early with an injury; the team is awaiting a timetable for his return.

I've been reading your website for a while now. I can't help but to appreciate your continued effort of keeping your readers updated. I must say that your hockey team has grown stronger. My nephew is also a hockey varsity player. We make sure to regularly watch his game

My husband is a fan of hockey though I really don't get why men can sit in front of the television all day just to watch their favorite game show. Well, I get it, but no the way he views it. Maybe it's also the same thing where men cannot understand women when watching a fashion show. I don't hate hockey. I'm starting to love it because it's been my son's favorite game ever since. We would attend a hockey game and he would just tell me his comments about the game and I like how they bonded as father and son. My son has a game next month. It's his first so we're very excited!
