Yarmouth Loses to Cape

Despite suffering a 7-1 drubbing by the Clippers back in December, Cape Elizabeth came into the game on a hot streak after downing second-place Gardiner and served notice they will be a team to be reckoned with in the playoffs.  Yarmouth failed to effectively move the puck against Cape and generated too few offensive opportunities.  Dan Latham was the bright light in an otherwise forgettable effort.

Cape’s Alex Glidden scored the first goal at 1:36 into the game and Cape dominated the first period out-shooting Yarmouth 10-4.  However, an unassisted power play goal by Captain Noah Grondin kept the score tied after one period.

Yarmouth finally showed some life in the second period and began to generate some offense, but Cape did a good job of denying time and space to Yarmouth’s top scorers.  Phillip Tarling scored the game-winning goal with 2:43 remaining in the period when he bounced a shot off a skate in front of Latham and into the net.

In the third period, Yarmouth kept trying to stick-handle through multiple Cape defenders and was only about to generate 4 shots in the final period.
