Hockey: Peewee Renegades 1 split again


METHUEN, Mass. — The Maine Renegades Peewee 1 hockey team split its games this past weekend.

Game 1  was a 4-2 loss against the first place New Hampshire Saints. The Saints raced out to a 4-0 lead before the Rens started their comeback a little too late.

Chandler Bilodeau and Caden Smith scored late third-period goals, but that is all that the Rens could muster.

In the second contest, the Renegades celebrated a 5-4 victory over Lynnfield-Saugus, Mass. It was a back-and-forth battle with Lynnfield-Saugus matching the Rens on each goal.

Bilodeau led the way with a hat trick, which included the game-winner with 5.2 seconds left in the contest. Colin Petit and Smith also scored for the Rens with Petit, Colby Anton, Evan Paquette, Thomas Levasseur and Joe Pichette collecting assists.

The Renegades stay in-state this upcoming weekend with games against Burriville, R.I., and the Maine Freeze.
