The Rangers are looking to make it back-to-back state titles on Saturday for the first time since 2012-13 as Greely defeated the Capers 6-1 Wednesday night at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston for the Class B South Championship.

It will be the third straight Class B state championship appearance for Greely.

The Rangers scored three times in a two-and-half minute span of the second period to break the game open.

It was Alexander Wallace who used his speed to break the 1-1 tie nearly two minutes into the second period. Andy Moore stretched Greely’s lead to 3-1 as he beat Cape Goalie William Depke (19 saves) cleanly with a blast from the right circle 3:48 into the middle frame.

The Capers called a timeout to try to regroup.

Wallace had other ideas as he scored another partial breakaway as he went top shelf. Evan Dutil notched the assist at the 4:24 mark into the second period.

Tyler Grasky scored in the third period to give Greely a 5-1 lead on the power play. Ryan Moore added an empty net goal

Mitchell Parent gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead as he jammed home a loose puck in the crease as Cape goalie William Depke couldn’t control a Caleb Duff shot at the 8:32 mark into the first period.

The Capers responded 47 seconds later when junior captain beat Greely goalie Jared Swisher (15 saves) with Sabastian Moon picking up the assist.
