BRUNSWICK — The Mt. Ararat/ Lisbon boys high school hockey team dominated from start to finish in a 2-0 Eastern A victory over Windham/ Sacopee Valley on Thursday at Sidney J. Watson Arena.

The 13-3 Bulldogs led 29-11 at the half and 43- 19 after three quarters.
“They used a stifling press to take command in the first quarter and we never recovered,” said Wiscasset coach Patrick Quinn, whose team is 2-14 and visits St. Dom’s on Tuesday.
Kayla Connors paced the Wolverines with 14 points and 17 rebounds. Briana Goud chipped in nine.
Kirsten Wood led Madison with 13 points, Alex Jarvais had 10 and Sam Bruce chipped in seven points and six rebounds.

The Wolverines trailed 16- 14 after a quarter and 34-29 at the half, but got things going in the third quarter, taking a seven-point lead after outscoring Madison 23-11.
“We led by 10 or 11 late in the third quarter, and we were taking care of the ball and playing good defense,” said Wiscasset ( 9- 7) coach Dana Lawrence, whose team visits St. Dom’s on Monday.
