At Caribou High School on Saturday afternoon, Ellsworth’s Conner McGuire scored off a Dagan Berenyi assist with 7:07 remaining in the first half for the game’s only goal in an intense and hard fought battle between the Vikings and Eagles.
The Eagles’ veteran keeper Steve Mahon and the stingy Ellsworth defense kept Caribou off the board and limited their quality chances for the shutout. Mahon ended with 5 saves on 12 shots for 8-0-1 Ellsworth.
For Caribou (5-4-1), keeper Matt Manter came up with a couple of great saves and the Caribou defense otherwise limited the Eagles attack. Manter ended up with 12 saves on 15 shots for the Vikings. Corners were 3-2 in favor of Caribou.
