Windham was working hard to move the puck around. Despite being down 3-0 in the first period, Windham was striving to show South Portland they weren’t going down easy.
At the start of the second period a fire had been lit under Windham and it showed in how aggressive they were. Windham had picked up the pace, were moving the puck around, and putting the force on South Portland. #11 Tommy Lekous, scored in the second period assisted by #2 Derek Palow; who had taken a hard hit, turned around and then came back on the ice, showing resiliency. #28 Derek Corbett and #32 Sean White blocked several shots throughout the game, keeping South Portland from pulling further ahead. At the end of two periods, the score was 4 -1, South Portland.
In the third period, Windham had better defense and increased their shots on South Portland’s goal while White made sure South Portland stayed at four. Windham really cranked up the intensity - so much so, at one point the puck flew over the glass and into the stands. Unfortunately, Windham wasn’t able to recover, and the final score remained 4-1.
“I think the first period we . . . gave them three goals,” said Coach Greg Leclair. “We tied with South Portland a week and a half or so ago, so we know we can compete with them, we just dug ourselves a little bit of a hole today.”
