LEWISTON – The Lewiston Ice Dawgs hockey team is seeking players as it prepares to enter its second year in the Southern Maine Middle School Ice Hockey League. Eligible are male or female players in Grades 6-8 who attend schools in Lewiston or Sabattus. Tryouts are slated for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 1-4:20 p.m. at the Colisee in Lewiston.
