GORHAM — Sam Craig scored the game’s only goal 5:45 into the second period to give the Lawrence/Skowhegan hockey team a 1-0 upset of Windham/Westbrook Saturday afternoon at USM Ice Arena.

“It’s huge,” Bandits coach Ted Fabian said of the win. “Going up against a 10-2 team and obviously it’s been a rough year for us. We had some guys that came out and really battled hard.”

Craig’s goal came off assists from Nolan Despres and Sam Haver, who — according to Fabian — played all 45 minutes of the game on defense. Hunter Raye picked up the shutout in net for the Bandits (4-8-0 Class A North), while Fabian also said the team got strong contributions from John Cook, David Washburn and Nick Reeves in the win.

Windham/Westbrook fell to 10-3-0 in Class A North with the loss.
