Spaulding Suffers Heartbreaking 2-1 Overtime Loss, Ending 2015/2016 Season
Oyster River scored 4:13 into sudden death overtime to advance over the Spaulding Red Raiders, 2-1 in the D II playoffs Wednesday afternoon at the Whittemore Center Arena. Ashton Langis broke a scoreless tie early in the second period to give the Red Raiders a 1-0 lead on a partial breakaway with the assist going to senior Shannon Colson. Spaulding looked to be in control going into the final minutes of the game, but took back to back penalties. The Red Raiders killed off both penalties, but had trouble clearing their zone as the second penalty expired. Oyster River had also pulled their goaltender. The Bobcats shot wide from the left point to a waiting Oyster River player who poked the puck past a sprawling Brayden McGary to send the game into overtime with 16 seconds remaining. Spaulding came out strong in the extra period with a flurry of chances in the first minute of play, but was unable to find the back of the net.
Spaulding's 2015/2016 comes to an end with the loss. Oyster River moves on to face top-ranked Bow in the quarterfinals this weekend. The Red Raiders finished the season with a 10-9 record.

After a 10-day layoff, the Spaulding Red Raiders will open the preliminary round of the DII playoffs against Oyster River Wednesday afternoon at the Whittemore Center in Durham. Game time is 4:00 PM.
Spaulding looks for revenge after dropping two to the Bobcats this season, the second coming in the team's final regular season game just over a week ago, 2-1. The team lost 2-0 earlier in the year.

Spaulding Closes Out Regular Season With 2-1 Loss To Oyster River
Spaulding finished the regular season at 10-8 after suffering a 2-1 loss to Oyster River on senior night at the Rochester Ice Arena Saturday evening. For the second straight game the Red Raiders were held to just one goal, this time scored by Ashton Langis on a 5-on-3 in the first minute of the third period to knot the game at one. Senior Kam Trepanier got the assist. The Bobcats had held a 1-0 lead through most of the game up to that point scoring midway through the first period on a shot that beat Brayden McGary high glove side. Oyster River got the game winner midway through the third on a tipped shot in front of the net, just after Spaulding had killed off a penalty. Spaulding had their chances, and had two goals waived off after quick whistles on loose pucks in front of the Bobcats net. Spaulding also hit the post on an empty net as the Oyster River goaltender fell out of position on the ice as he tried to clear the puck on a Red Raider rush.
The Red Raiders have 10 days off and await their playoff opponent, and positioning. The team will likely finish in 8th or 9th place in the 10-team Division 2 tournament and still could host a first-round game.

Top Ranked Bow Defeats Spaulding 2-1
The Red Raiders travelled to Everett Arena in Concord on Wednesday to face Bow in a late afternoon contest. Although Spaulding fell short on the scoreboard, 2-1, the game hopefully served as a barometer to how the team can compete with the top teams in Division II heading into the post season.
Jake McCutcheon scored Spaulding's lone goal late in the first period, on the power play, as he redirected a Brody McDougal shot from the right point to even the score at one heading into the first intermission. The Falcon's game winner came on a power play in the second. Spaulding had a five-minute man advantage in the third, but was unable to capitalize with the equalizer although they did generate several quality chances.
The Red Raiders close out the regular season this Saturday evening at 7:30 PM against Oyster River at the Rochester Ice Arena. The team will honor its seniors prior to the game.

Addison Doble added one in the second to make it 2-0 with an assist going to Drew Healey. Nick Bennett scored the final Spaulding goal on a redirect of an Ashton Langis shot from the blue line in the third.

Determined Effort Throughout Helps Spaulding Sink Windham
The Red Raiders put forth one of their most consistent performances of the season Wednesday night as they defeated the visiting Windham Jaguars 4-0 in D2 action at the Rochester Ice Arena.
An action-packed first period produced no scoring; however, each team had several opportunities with both goaltenders making key saves. Shaun Cormier opened the scoring in the second as he elected to hold onto the puck while he skated down the right side on a two-on-one. Cormier went high short side to beat Windham goalie Max Daly to put the Red Raiders up 1-0. Nick Bennett followed as he scored from just outside the center of the crease on a nice feed from Ashton Langis behind the net. Spaulding put the game away in the third with two goals from Addison Doble, assisted by Brody McDougal, then Jake McCutcheon and Drew Healey.

Defenseman Connor Breeze (Shaun Cormier assist) opened the scoring for Spaulding with a shot from the point midway through the first period. The Green Wave gave its fans something to cheer about, battling back with two goals in the second; however, the Red Raiders got the equalizer with about a minute to go in the period with a nice blue-collar goal. Jake McCutcheon and Drew Healey outworked Dover defenders as Spaulding drove down the left side of the ice, and battled to get Bennett the puck just outside the Dover crease where he beat keeper Nick Martinen.
There was no scoring in the third, but neither team disappointed with momentum shifts, big hits and fast-paced play throughout.
