In the end Bangor set the tone for its future games. Brewer is a good team, they were just not quite ready for the play of the Rams in this one. 

Bangor opened the scoring 1:22 seconds into the game with a goal from Issac Bonenfant, assisted by Michael Moscone and Miles Randall.

The Rams took a 2-0 lead in the first period on a goal from Randall with an assist from Michael McLean.

At 8:46 in the second period the Witches scored their lone goal of the game that was made by Brady Barker with an assist from Cade McKenney.

With the score 2-1 Bangor went to work to make up that goal and at 10:03 into the period Cameron Legassie buried a shot into the back of the net with an assist from Cole Neale giving the Rams a 2-point lead again. 

Bangor lit the board twice more in the final third period.  Randall scored his second goal 7:25 into the period with a beautiful pass in from Cooper Ireland. At 10:39 Ireland was able to follow up the assist with an unassisted goal of his own for the final score of the game.

Bangor had Baxter Cole in goal for the win to move Bangor to 1-1 on the season. Brewer's keeper was Ethan Hanscom who despite giving up five goals, kept many more out of the goal with some very good defense. 

Bangor will head south to So. Portland for their next match-up Saturday, Dec. 18 ,while Brewer will host another home game, this on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the Penobscot Ice Arena, will be against Camden Hills of Rockport.
