The Rams play the Maranacook/Hall-Dale/Winthrop co-operative team (5-2-0) at 8:30 tonight at Kents Hill. They’ll then play at Bangor (5-1-0) — the top-ranked team in Eastern A — on Thursday.

“We have three big games this week,” Foye said. “This is a big week for us. These will be three of our tougher games we’ll play. It’s a good test for us. It will tell us where we fit into the mix.”

MHW forward Dan Condon ranks among the Eastern A leaders with 11 assists. The Winthrop sophomore has five goals as well to give him a team-leading 16 points.

“My linemates are getting open,” he said. “We’re clicking. We’re working well together and hopefully we can keep it going.”

Condon skates with Matt Plourde and Jared Hanson.

“(Condon) has a special touch around the net,” MHW coach Andy Dube said. “He gets in on the plays and he can read the ice. He knows where to go with the puck and is a great passer.”

The Kents Hill boys are 9-6-1 and are riding a bit of a hot streak. The Huskies have lost just once in their last 12 games (8-3-1).

“The talent is starting to jell,” Kents Hill coach Larry Cockrell said. “We started the season with some tough games and that really pushed us in the right direction. We’re scoring a lot of goals, which is a nice change for us. We have a lot of natural goal scorers.”

Winthrop native Mark Dufour has 11 goals and five assists for 16 points. Logan Day leads the way with 12 goals and 12 assists for the Huskies. Jared Cockrell, Larry’s son, also has seven goals.

“I have some balanced scoring,” Larry Cockrell said. “I believe we are a playoff caliber team.”

Waterville and Messalonskee will play their third annual Breast Cancer Awareness Game at 6:30 tonight at Alfond Rink.

Players from both teams will wear pink laces on their skates and have pink tape on their sticks.

“We’ll take donations from people and do a 50-50 raffle,” Messalonskee coach Mike Latendresse said. “It’s a joint effort on both teams to raise money.”

Proceeds raised will be donated to the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care in Augusta.

The teams raised about $350 last season, Latendresse said.

“We hope to do $500 this year,” he said.

The Eagles (5-1-0) and Panthers (1-7-0) have had quite different starts to their seasons.

Messalonskee is a contender in Eastern B while Waterville is struggling in Eastern A, picking up its first victory of the season last week.

Still, Latendresse expects a tight game tonight.

“It is a big game,” he said. “When you look at Waterville, they’ve had a difficult start but they’re playing much better. They play such a difficult schedule. It’s a top Class A schedule. They are not like any other (1-7-0) team out there. They play all the top teams in both the West and East. Against us, it seems like they always find a way to play a great game.”
