Clippers Remain Unbeaten

In their first road game of the regular season, Yarmouth came away with a big 5-1 win against a highly-touted Kennebunk squad.  Dan Latham continued his stellar play in net and showed that he is one of the top goalies in Class B as he turned away 41 shots in the victory.

The game was much tighter than the score would indicate.  Yarmouth struck first as Captain Walter Conrad blasted a shot over the Kennebunk goalie’s left shoulder at 4:41 into the game.  Despite being outshot 11-4, the Clippers took the 1-0 lead into the locker room at the end of the first period.

At 9:45 of the second period, Kennebunk tied the game when a rebound trickled to Kyle Beaupre, who was left uncovered just outside the crease.  However,  less than a minute later, Anders Newburg ripped a wrist shot through traffic into the top corner for what would prove to be the game winner.  Walter Conrad was credited with the assist.

Although the Clippers had a 2-1 lead, they still were heavily outshot by Kennebunk in the first two periods.  The oustanding play of Dan Latham and his defensemen was the difference.

In the third period, Yarmouth finally started to move their feet and find their groove.  Tyler Veilleux made a nice pass to Bill Jacobs who fired a shot that was tipped by Walter Conrad to give Yarmouth a  3-1 lead.

The Clippers were not content to sit on the two-goal lead and poured on the offense.  Chris Romano stole a bouncing puck for an unassisted tally, and Noah Grondin converted a rebound off a shot by Joe Truesdale to make the final score 5-1.  Throughout the contest, the Clippers’ fans, aka the YC Ultras, made it feel like a home game for Yarmouth.

The Clippers’ next game is this Thursday’s game against Class A powerhouse Cheverus at Portland Ice Arena.  The game has a 6 pm start.

NOTES: Senior Captain Patrick Grant was recently named the Class B Soccer Player of the Year.  In other news, Sophomore Dan Latham won the Mr. YHS contest due to his dashing physique and commitment to world peace.  In the question-and-answer session, Latham opined that in a brawl between Joe Truesdale, Tyler Veilleux, and Sam Marjerison, Truesdale would be the victor.
