Cape Elizabeth senior Hanna Landis took a pass from her twin sister, Sarah, and put the puck over the goaltender’s outstretched glove to win the Maine Girls Ice Hockey Association’s all-star game Sunday at USM.

The goal came three minutes into overtime and gave the blue team a 3-2 victory over the white team. Both squads were made up of players chosen from the 20 high schools that participate in the MGIHA.

The contest was scoreless for the first two periods, which were marked by fast play and stellar goaltending, including the play of Scarborough senior Sarah Mills for the blue team.

After a small scoring barrage in the third period, the game went into OT, where the Landis sisters ended it.

A team of MGIHA all-stars will be chosen to play in an upcoming game against a similar team from New Hampshire in Laconia, NH. Last year, in the inaugural game between the two states held in Portland, the NH team edged Maine, 3-2, on a last-minute goal. The local skaters will be looking to tie the series with a win on the road.
