Class A Quarterfinals

No. 1 Edward Little 5, No. 8 Lewiston 1

Tate Morse led the Red Eddies with two goals as Edward Little knocked off Lewiston 5-1. The Blue Devils were the defending Class A state champions winning the title in 2020. There was no tournament in 201 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Tanner Anctil put Lewiston up 1-0 midway through the first period, with Colton Daniels and Cody Dionne setting up the goal. The lead only lasted 21 seconds when Morse found the back of the net. Gavin Levesque and Campbell Cassidy had the helpers. Aiden Gonzalez scored late in the first period to give Edward Little a 2-1 lead. Wesley Clements had the assist.

In the second period, Morse stretched the lead to 3-1 after Peyton Dyer won a faceoff on the power play. Cassidy scored in the third period for a 4-1 lead, and Clements added an empty-net goal to cap the scoring. Gage Ducharme made 18 saves in the win, and Evan Greaton stopped 24 shots in the loss.

Caden Barnard scored 12:20 into the second period to give Falmouth a 1-0 lead, but Kyle LeSieur put home a rebound from an Alex St. John shot to tie the game less than a minute later. Brandon White made 16 saves for the Navigators. Thornton will take on top-seeded Edward Little in the semifinals Tuesday.

No. 3 South Portland/Freeport/Waynflete 3, No. 6 Lake Region/Fryeburg/Oxford Hills 2

The Red Riots quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, and then survived an Ice Cats comeback with a goal early in the third period. Joey Soucy scored nearly two minutes into the first period and Cullen Adams scored just past the six-minute mark.

The Ice Cats mounted their comeback with under five minutes in the first period when Owen Galligan scored to cut the deficit to 2-1. Jacob Lemery scored halfway through the second period to tie the game. Richard Gilboy scored a power-play goal in the opening minute of the third period for the game-winner. The Red Riots will take on No. 7 Scarborough on Tuesday in one of the semifinal games.

No. 7 Scarborough 4, No. 2 Bangor 2

Senior Sam Rumelhart factored in all four goals for the Red Storm in the upset win over the Rams. He assisted on Wyatt Grondin‘s goal to give Scarborough a 1-0 lead early in the second period. Rumelhart then scored his first goal en route to a hat trick for a 2-0 lead before the five-minute mark of the second period.

Bangor evened the game with back-to-back goals in a 40-second span by Dan McCarthy and Cooper Ireland. Rumelhart scored the game-winner with seven seconds remaining in the second period and added an insurance marker late in the third period.
