SUBHEAD-Falmouth hockey splits a pair
After a 4-2 home loss to Scarborough last Thursday night, the Falmouth boys’ hockey team bounced right back Saturday as the Yachtsmen downed visiting Kennebunk 4-1 behind two goals from junior Dan Hanley. Monday, however, Falmouth was beaten by the Red Storm again, this time 4-1 at Scarborough. The Yachtsmen (10-5 and second to Gorham in the Western Class A Heal Points standings) is at Portland Thursday, hosts Bonny Eagle Saturday and closes the regular season at Greely Monday. In Western B, Yarmouth is 4-9-2 after beating York 3-2 and losing 3-0 to Leavitt. Freshman Marshall Brunelle was recently chosen as the Western Class B Coaches’ Association January Rookie of the Month after scoring seven goals and adding three assists. The Clippers (sixth in the Heals) visit Greely Thursday, then close the year at home against Camden Saturday and Noble Monday.
