Please remember that the American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive at the Casco Bay Arena on Saturday, February 6th from 9 am-2 pm.  We will acknowledge all donors on our website and each donor will receive a gift certificate for two free skate sharpenings or a free pond hockey session.  Make your hockey player proud.

Tight Race in Junior Varsity League

#6 Cameron Clifford celebrates a Cheverus goal against Yarmouth

The Opening Round of the Junior Varsity League at Casco Bay Arena is winding down and the final spots in the Adams Division (Group A) are up for grabs.  Undefeated Falmouth has clinched first-place and in the final games of the Opening Round, Mt. Ararat, Cape Elizabeth, St. Dom’s, and Cheverus are vying for the remaining three spots.

Adams Division (Tentative Group A)

Team W L T Points
Falmouth 6 0 0 12
Mt. Ararat 4 2 0 8
Cheverus 3 2 1 7
St. Dom’s 3 2 1 7

Norris Division (Tentative Group B)

Team W L T Points
Cape Elizabeth 3 3 0 6
Windham/Westbrook 2 4 0 4
Portland/Deering 2 4 0 4
Yarmouth 0 6 0 0

In this Friday’s games, a loss by any of these teams, with the exception of Mt. Ararat, will likely drop them into the Norris Division (Group B) to join Windham/Westbrook, Portland/Deering, and Yarmouth.

In head-to-head games, Cape holds the tie-breaker over St. Dom’s, Mt. Ararat is over Cape, and Cheverus holds the tie-breaker over Mt. Ararat and Cape.  St. Dom’s and Cheverus tied in their only meeting.

For all of these teams, this Friday’s contests are must-win games.

Time Games 
5:30 pm Mt. Ararat at St. Dom’s
6:40 pm Windham/Westrook at Cheverus

The following is the tentative schedule for the three-game Playoff Round, which will be followed by a two-game, single-elimination Championship for each division.

The final Playoff Round schedule for Adams Division seeds ##2-4 and Norris Division seed #1 cannot be determined until the results of Friday’s games are known.  The final schedule will be posted no later than Monday, January 25th.  Coaches should email game results to CascoBayArena@gmail.com.

In conjunction with Falmouth Community Services, we will be offering a FREE Learn to Play Session on Martin Luther King Day at 2 pm.  This session is free to anyone under the age of 12 who would like to try hockey.  Players only need skates, a stick and a helmet–a bike or ski helmet will suffice.  We will have extra sticks and helmets available for use. Please spread the word and help us grow the game. If a current Casco Bay player brings a friend to a Learn to Play Session, they can also skate for free.

Casco Bay coaches and players will be on hand to work with new players and introduce them to the greatest game  in the world.  Advance sign-ups are not necessary and players just need to show up.
