Top-seeded Greely (16-2-1) moves on to the regional final Wednesday night. The Rangers will play third-seeded Leavitt/Edward Little, which beat No. 2 Lewiston 3-2 in double overtime.

No. 4 Brunswick is done with an 8-12 record.

Despite keeping the puck in the Dragons' end most of the night and outshooting Brunswick 54-7, Greely led only 1-0 through one period. Brunswick goalie Claire Mendes held off the Rangers in the early going.

"We really had a lot of opportunities, but (Mendes) did a great job," Greely Coach Nate Guerin said. "She made a lot of saves in traffic and off rebounds."

Maura Verrill gave Greely the 1-0 lead. Paige Tuller and Meg Finlay scored in the second period for a 3-0 lead.

Brunswick began the third period with a Rachel Moroney power-play goal, assisted by Mary Sasso, closing the deficit to 3-1.

Greely finished the scoring with goals by Mary Morrison and Sarah Kurland.

The Rangers are 12-0-1 in their last 13 games. They split their season series with Leavitt/Edward Little. Greely lost 2-1 in December and won 5-1 in the regular-season finale.


LEAVITT/EDWARD LITTLE 3, LEWISTON 2: Taylor Landry completed a hat trick with less than a second left in the second overtime to give the third-seeded Red Hornets (15-4) a win over the No. 2 Blue Devils (14-5) at the Colisee.

Landry scored twice on breakaways to give Leavitt/EL a 2-0 lead in the first period. Erin Hubbard answered with a power-play goal in the second period, and Corinne Laberge tied it with 3:05 left in regulation.


FALMOUTH 5, BIDDEFORD 0: Five players scored as the Yachtsmen (12-2) blanked the Tigers (5-8-1) at Falmouth.

Tyler Jordan and Ethan Low gave Falmouth a 2-0 lead in the first period. Brandon Peters made it 3-0 in the second, and Kris Samaras and Hugh Grygiel tacked on third-period goals.

Alden Bohrmann and Alden Weller each had two assists.
