Weekend Sports Round-Up

The Blue Blazes ice hockey team crossed the Piscataqua Saturday afternoon and beat Marshwood-Traip, 5-2. Their record is 2-0 and their next home game is against Gorham (2-0)on Thursday, December 18 at 3p. The game will be played at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham.

The Westbrook wrestling team finished second (out of 9 teams) in the 33rd annual Tiger Invitational Wrestling Tournament in Gardiner. Rassler Harrison Strondak won the 152-pound class and was named the tournament's most outstanding competitor.

Westbrook soccer's Galen Perkins was named to the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram's All-State Boys' Soccer team. Perkins, the Blue Blazes' starting goalkeeper since he was a freshman, will play at Stanford University next autumn.

(Update: The American Journal's Tom Minervino has seeded the Westbrook boys' basketball team fourth in the second installment of his SMAA Basketball Power Rankings.)
