PORTLAND — Three teams from the Greater Portland Women’s Ice Hockey League won division championships at the She-Wolves Women’s Hockey Tournament in Wolfeboro, N.H.

The Maine Coon Cats, with players ranging from ages 24 to 58, won the recreational division for the third consecutive year. The Breakaways and Murphys finished first in their respective divisions.

The tournament consisted of four games for each team.

The Coon Cats earned three wins and a loss in their four games, and sustained only three goals against them in all four games.

In addition to strong play by netminder Felicia Mazzone of Scarborough, the team scored eight goals.

Six Coon Cats scored during the tourney: Susan Elias of Yarmouth; Lauren Guite of Portland; Celena Redzinak of Portland; Meg Zellinger of Bowndoinham with a goal apiece, and Portland’s Tessa Prince and New Gloucester’s Cheryl Bascomb notching two each.

The Breakaways and Murphys won their divisional championships, as well, prompting Coon Cat team manager Katie Mortensen to make an Olympic-year reference about this divisional sweep by Maine teams: “Looks like Maine is the new Canada.”
