No. 1 Lewiston capped off its third straight Class A State Championship with a 2-1 victory over Biddeford. It’s been quite a run for the program who just came so close so many times from 2003-2015.

No. 2 Biddeford, after losing 5-2 to Lewiston at the end of the regular season, went on quite the run to a state title appearance. After an opening round win over South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete, they knocked off Falmouth (No. 2 seed in A South) and Cheverus (No. 1 in A South) in the regional semis and finals. Coach Jason Tremblay has revitalized the program the past two years as they tried to get their fourth state title.

No. 3 Cheverus fell to Biddeford in the South regional final in a thrilling 6-5 contest. It was the second straight season they reached the regional final, but the Stags are still looking for their first state title since 2006.

No. 4 Falmouth also got knocked out by Biddeford in the regional quarterfinals. The Tigers were a thorn in the Yachtsmen side this season as Biddeford swept the season series.

No. 5 St. Dom’s nearly pulled the upset over Lewiston in the North regional final before losing 2-1 in overtime. This year, like in most recent years, the Saints found a way to get to the regional final after a slow start to the regular season.

No. 6 Edward Little reached the North regional quarterfinals and lost to St. Dom’s. It was a good season under legendary coach Norm Gagne who returned to his alma mater this season.

No. 7 Thornton Academy bowed out to Cheverus in the South regional quarterfinals. The Golden Trojans are looking to get back to the state championship game where they won it back-to-back in 2011-12.

No. 8 Bangor is still fighting the demons of playing in Lewiston as they were bounced out in the regional semifinals by the Blue Devils. They are always a threat in A North so expect another trip to Lewiston next year for the playoffs.

No. 9 Poland/Leavitt/Oak Hill/Gray-New Gloucester had a very good year after getting out to a fast start. They were bounced out in the regional quarterfinal by St. Dom’s but will look to build off this season for next year.

No. 10 South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete rounds out the top ten as they made the South playoffs as the No. 6 seed. They were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Biddeford.
