WATERVILLE, ME – Thomas College surged for three goals in the final period, defeating University of Maine at Farmington, 3-0 to claim the 2014 Central Maine Collegiate Conference (CMCC) Championship.
Both teams went back and forth in the first two periods, with both goaltenders standing strong in net and not giving each other an inch. Despite two power play opportunities in both the first and second period, the Red and Black were unable to capitalize on the man-up opportunities.
Goaltender Tanner Brooks, who made 18 stops in the contest, held the Beavers scoreless despite many good opportunities.
Thomas was finally able to crack the score seconds in the closing stanza, as Jason Dicey buried the puck off a pass from Michael Hersom and line mate Garon LaFountain. It would be LaFountain who put in the second goal for the Terriers, which was assisted by Dan Collins and Matt Letellier. Lukas Bohman added the third with five minutes remaining to pull the game out of reach for UMF and seal the victory for Thomas.
