PORTLAND - Bangor boys hockey tied the game after falling behind 2-0, but eventually dropped their semifinals matchup to Thornton Academy 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Jacob Marcotte got the scoring started for the Trojans, putting them up 1-0 early in the game. They would lead 2-0 after one.

In the second, Marc-Andre Perron would put the Rams on the board, making it a 2-1 game before Miles Randall tied the game at two goals apiece. That would be the only offense for Bangor in the game.

The Trojans would take a 3-2 lead at the end of the second from an Evan Beaudette goal, and that would be the final score. Thornton Academy advances to the Class A championship on Saturday.

After college, Tyler worked as a news anchor and a sports anchor for WBKB11 News in Alpena, Michigan and is excited to come back to New England -- just hours away from his family. When he’s not talking about sports, Tyler enjoys golfing and playing softball (because his baseball days have passed). He also loves to fish, cook, and spend time outdoors any way he can.
