BIDDEFORD — The Biddeford boys hockey team handed Cheverus its first loss of the season with a hard fought 2-1 victory.

The Tigers struck first at 8:39 of the first period as a result of some tenacious forechecking by freshman Curtis Petit and junior captain Kerry Crepeau, as junior Joe Anders slipped the puck past Stag goalie Kyle Severance.

Biddeford, taking advantage of the first of five Cheverus penalties during the second period, extended their lead to 2-0 as senior captain Evan Loignon slid a perfect pass across the slot for a back-door one-timer by sophomore Ricky Ruck.

Cheverus had a golden opportunity to come within one goal as freshman Cam Dube was awarded a penalty shot with .4 seconds remaining in the second period, but Biddeford goalie and senior captain Brandon Daigle poke-checked the puck away to keep the Stags scoreless through two.

Cheverus did draw within one at 8:35 of the third period on a goal by Luke Trickey, who was assisted by James Hannigan and Dube.

Daigle withstood a barrage of shots in the final minutes of the game to preserve the victory.
