Witches power past Bulldogs
By Larry Mahoney, BDN Staff
BREWER — The second-seeded Brewer Witches used second-period goals from Tyler White, Joey Perry and Ryan Nadeau to build a 4-0 lead on route to a comfortable 7-2 victory over seventh-seeded Lawrence of Fairfield in the Eastern Maine Class A quarterfinal at the Penobscot Ice Arena Tuesday night. Brewer improved to 15-3-1 while Lawrence finished at 10-9. Nadeau scored the only goal of the first period and he added a third-period goal to cap his hat trick. White and Dylan Fitzpatrick also scored third-period goals for the Witches while Lawrence received third-period power play goals from Devan Belanger and Brock Lawrence. White scored 1:34 into the second period when he took a pass from Chris Lopez, busted down the right wing in a 2-on-2, and snapped a wrist shot from the top of the right circle that deflected in off the crossbar. Perry extended the lead to 3-0 at the 6:36 mark. Lawrence goalie Chris Caron had made two saves, one on Matt Helfen’s point shot and another on T.J. McCormick’s follow-up shot, but Perry shoveled home the rebound. Nadeau’s second goal of the game came with 42 seconds left in the period. Dave McNally wristed the puck to the midpoint and Caron made the initial save and another one Dylan Fitzpatrick’s in-tight rebound attempt, but Nadeau cut left-to-right after picking up the loose puck and swept it into the half-empty net. Brewer outshot Lawrence 20-7 in the second period. Nadeau scored in the first period as he converted on a Brewer power play at the 6:55 mark. Steve Farley slid the puck to Fitzpatrick, who was positioned near the right wing boards in the Lawrence zone. Fitzpatrick quickly fed the puck across to the top of the left circle where Nadeau one-timed a low wrister past Caron. Brewer outshot Lawrence 13-3 in the first period, but the Bulldogs did an effective job protecting the front of the net and limiting the Witches’ high-percentage scoring chances.
