Windham/Westbrook hockey team falls to Lawrence/Skowhegan - By Steve Pock

Windham/Westbrook hockey hosted the Lawrence/Skowhegan Bandits at USM on Saturday for last home game of the season, which was senior night.  The WW hockey team has a total of 14 JV and varsity players that were honored by the crowd and families.
The first period was an even exchange of back and forth action and nearly equal shots on goal.  The second period started out much the same way until half way into the period when Sam Craig from the Bandits lit the lamp with a shot over the right shoulder of Alex LeBlanc to get on the score board.
The teams went into the locker room at the end of the second period with the Bandits up 1-0.  WW poured on the shots in the third with the Bandits goaltender Hunter Raye standing on his head fending off 16 third period shots.  The Bandits held tough the last 2 minutes a man down and the WW goalie pulled.  There was a 6-on-4 situation for about 45 seconds when they went down another.  The last 19 seconds was a 6-on-3 and the Bandits held it together for a hard fought win.
WW goes to 10-3 on the season and Lawrence/Skowhegan earned their fourth win of the year to go to 4-8.
