After it snapped a two-game losing streak on Friday, Feb. 16 with a 3-2 win over John Bapst of Bangor — in the team's final home game of the regular season — the Camden Hills ice hockey team was back on the road a day later at the Family Ice Center in Falmouth where the Windjammers lost 8-2 to Greely of Cumberland.

It was the third straight road defeat for Camden Hills.

The Windjammers appear to have nailed down at least the sixth and final spot in the Class B North Heal Point Standings, and will play two final regular-season road games at Old Town/Orono and Messalonskee of Oakland.

Feb. 17 game

On Saturday, Feb. 17, the hosts netted four first-period goals to lead 4-0, while the teams scored two goals in the second period, as Greely led 6-2.

The Windjammers' goals were scored by Bryce Tyler and Nick Tausek. Charlie Griebel and Andrew Orne chipped in assists.

The Rangers got goals from Quinn Molloy, Peter Lattanzi, Jackson Williams, Matt Kramlich, Chris Williams and Kyle Kramlich. Matt Kramlich, Andy Moore, Molloy, Jake McDonald, Matt Dubbert and Owen O'Connell registered assists in the victory.

Greely held a 45-16 advantage in shots on goal, including 18-3 in the first period, 13-8 in the second and 14-5 in the third.

Camden Hills' goalie Matt Czuchra made 32 stops in net, while Jimmy Lynch also stopped five shots in his time in net for the Windjammers. Additionally, Greely's Karsten Bourgoine made 14 saves between the pipes.

The visitors had only one penalty, which was a minor, for two minutes. The hosts had two minor penalties for four minutes.

Camden Hills was 0-of-2 on power plays, while Greely was 1-of-1.

"Really good team to play," said Windjammer coach Karl Enroth. "Greely has a strong, fast team, and they turn mistakes and loose plays into goals real quick. Hopefully we learn from this game and adapt in a way that helps us moving forward."

The Rangers skated hard, attacking the Windjammers net throughout the first period, and, as a result, led 4-0.

Camden Hills found their skating legs in the second period, and played a more competitive affair against the hard-charging hosts.

Both teams exchanged a pair of second-period goals, and in the the final period, Greely added their final two goals.

The individual scoring included:

First period — G, 1-0, at 11:03, Molloy (unassisted). Molly intercepted a pass, skated down the right side and shot a hard wrist shot. G, 2-0, at 8:03, Lattanzi (Matt Kramlich assisting).

Feb. 16 game

The bid to solidify a regional playoff spot got a shot in the arm for the Camden Hills ice hockey team on Friday, Feb. 9, as the Windjammers got sensational goalie play from Matt Czuchra and rallied for two third-period goals en route to a 3-2 victory over visiting John Bapst of Bangor in the team's final regular-season home game at the Midcoast Recreation Center.

On Friday, the opponents netted second-period goals to tie 1-1 before the hosts tallied two goals and John Bapst one in the third period.

Liam Haining scored a goal for the Windjammers on a night his family sponsored the ice. Ben Wells and Tyler also added goals for the hosts, while Dan Lydon had two assists and Michael Blackwell another.

For the Crusaders, Ben Spear netted both goals, while Curran Granger, Jacob Larochelle and Garrett Kirlin added assists.

The game marked the final home contest (except for potential playoff games) for Windjammer seniors Isaac Bricker, Cam Christie, Sarah Contento, Czuchra, Thomas Griebel, Lydon, Colt Magri, Haining and manager Tyler Gerry.

The game was competitive throughout as John Bapst outshot Camden Hills 41-39, including 17-7 in the first period. The Windjammers held a 14-11 and 18-13 edge in shots over the final two periods.

In a sensational and yeoman performance, Czuchra made 39 saves in goal for the Windjammers and Dan Sprague 36 for the Crusaders.

The Windjammers finished with six minor penalties for 12 minutes and John Bapst four minors for eight minutes.

Neither team converted on the power play, as the Windjammers finished 0-of-2 and the Crusaders 0-of-3.

"Well, another close, hard-fought game," said Windjammer coach Karl Enroth. "After a slow start, we managed to play with some more desperation and energy toward the end and pull the game out. Goalie Matt Czuchra was definitely instrumental in keeping it close for us. Nice for our senior group of players to win their last regular-season home game here at MRC."

John Bapst carried the play throughout the opening period, but Czuchra, with a variety of tough saves, prevented the Crusaders from scoring.

In the second period the teams exchanged goals for the 1-1 score headed to the third period.

Both teams skated hard to open the final period as they worked to tally the go-ahead goal. At 9:26, Spear scored his second of the game to give the Crusaders a 2-1 lead.

Camden Hills immediately responded 22 seconds later, at 9:04, to tie the game on Haining's goal.

With just over two minutes remaining, Tyler skated into a loose puck just over the defensive blue line and skated in alone on the John Bapst net, Tyler, on his right forehand, tucked the puck past Sprague at the 2:21-mark.

Camden Hills also did a solid job of moving the puck to keep John Bapst from generating offense in the final few minutes to preserve the one-goal win, said Enroth.

The individual scoring included:

Second period — CH, 1-0, at 3:53, Wells (Lydon assisting). Wells, from the net front, knocked in a rebound from a Lydon shot from the blue-line point. JB, 1-1, at 1:22, Spear (Granger assisting). Spear skated down the right face-off slot and fired a high wrist shot glove side.

Third period — JB, 2-1, at 9:26, Spear (Larochelle, Kirlin assisting). Spear skated across the mid-slot and fired a wrist shot. CH, 2-2, at 9:04, Haining (Blackwell assisting). Haining scored on a wrist shot from the low-slot. CH, 3-2, at 2:21, Tyler (Lydon assisting). Tyler scored a breakaway goal on his right forehand.

Feb. 10 game

The beginning, and end, of the schedule for Camden Hills always was expected to be the toughest, especially the ending.

The Windjammers opened the season with three-out-of-four games on the road, and close the season with five-out-of-six contests away from home ice. The beginning of the season saw Camden Hills win all three of their road contests, but the bus trips to close out the season have not started out as smoothly.

The Windjammers lost their second consecutive game — after a Feb. 10 defeat at Yarmouth — on Wednesday, Feb. 14, a 2-1 decision to the Kennebec Riverhawks of Waterville/Winslow.

The Riverhawks scored two first-period goals, within 1:41 of one another, both from Cody Pellerin. Cooper Hart, Tom Tibbetts and Quinn Brown tallied assists for the hosts.

The Windjammers lone goal came from Tyler, as Quinn Brown assisted.

Kennebec led 2-1 after the first and second periods.

“We are in close games, playing really hard, but right now the goals are hard to come by,” said Enroth. “Our goalie, Matt Czuchra, was outstanding in net, keeping it a one-goal game throughout the second and third periods.”

Czuchra stopped 30 shots in yeoman work between the pipes, while the Riverhawks’ Bryce Gunzinger made 25 saves.

Camden Hills had six power plays during the contest, but only converted on one of them. Kennebec was 0-of-3 on power play opportunities.

The Windjammers had four minor penalties for eight minutes. The Riverhawks had five minor, one major and one misconduct penalty for 20 minutes.

Kennebec jumped to a 2-0 lead with a pair of Pellerin goals at the midway point of the first period. Camden Hills cut the deficit to one goal, when Tyler scored on a power play with just over six minutes remaining in the opening stanza.

The second period saw Kennebec apply early pressure, but Czuchra prevented the Riverhawks from scoring with superb defense in net.

The Windjammers started to find their legs midway through the second period, and, also, started to generate offensive muscle, but failed to score.

The final period proved a battle between the clubs, and opportunity struck for Camden Hills when the squad went on a five-minute power play with seven minutes remaining. However, the Windjammers could not convert on that opportunity.

Enroth called a timeout with 1:06 to play in the game to get his team organized, and, with 37 seconds left, Czuchra was pulled for an extra attacker. Camden Hills was in the attacking zone, and managed to fire off a few shots, but Gunzinger stopped them all as time expired.

The individual scoring from Saturday’s game included:

First period — WW, 1-0, at 9:34, Pellerin (Hart and Tibbetts assisting). Pellerin scored off the backdoor right post. WW, 2-0, at 7:53, Pellerin (Tibbetts and Hart assisting). Pellerin on a wrist shot from the slot. CH, 2-1, at 6:03, Tyler (Brown assisting). Tyler on a slap shot from the top of the faceoff circle.
