YARMOUTH — After falling apart in the third period Wednesday against Edward Little/Leavitt/Poland, the Falmouth girls’ hockey team made sure it didn’t let up Saturday night against Yarmouth/Freeport.

Camden Carrier and Sarah Hutcheon each scored two goals as the Yachtsmen cruised to a 5-1 win at Travis Roy Arena.

“We came off a tough loss,” Falmouth Coach Rob Carrier said. “We had a third-period lead and we gave up three goals and, obviously, we weren’t pleased with that. It was nice to see the effort during the third period didn’t drop off in this game.

“The girls worked really hard, and they understood the significance of that loss. They took a great step forward tonight.”

Falmouth scored three goals in the first 13 minutes to take command.

“I know Falmouth had a tough game the other night where they were ahead and then they fell short,” Yarmouth Coach Jeff Haley said. “They came out ready to play at the start.

“We’ve been practicing all week and we just didn’t have our game legs. They just got the quick jump on us, and we had to fight back.”

The Clippers (1-1) hadn’t played since a 9-0 win against Brunswick in their season opener on Nov. 24.

“You can practice as hard as you want all the time, but when you get into a game situation things change,” Haley said. “Taking nothing away from Falmouth. They came to play and kudos to them. They’re a good, strong team.”

Carrier opened the scoring 7:09 into the game when she skated into the slot, got her stick on a loose puck and slid a low shot from between the hash marks past goalie Hannah Williams. The puck came loose while Marcy Kittridge and a defender battled for possession.

Hutcheon scored her first goal at 12:44. After bringing the puck into the offensive zone, she unleashed a hard, rising shot from near the top of the right circle that eluded Williams’ grasp.

Carrier made it 3-0 just 17 seconds later when she jammed the puck into the left side of the goal.

Jenny Holmquist, one of five players from Freeport, put the hosts on the board in the second period. Her shot from the top of the left circle came eight seconds into a power play.

The Yachtsmen (3-1) answered 8:41 into the period when Caroline Proctor scored on Falmouth’s only power play.

Hutcheon completed the scoring 7:11 into the third period, putting in a shot from the slot. Ally Hurdman made 21 saves for Falmouth.
