The Maine Nordiques scored the first goal of the game, but they were in comeback mode after a bad second period. The rally attempt came up one goal short, however, in a 7-5 loss to the Northeast Generals in an NAHL matchup at Androscoggin Bank Colisee on Wednesday night.

Casper Soderling put the Nordiques ahead 1-0 early in the first period, and that lead stuck into the first period, but the Generals outscored the Nordiques 5-0 in the middle frame. Trevor Smith scored twice in the period, Gerard Marretta potted the go-ahead goal, and Keegan Ripper and Liam McCanney also found the back of the net in the frame.

Timmy Kent got the Nordiques back on the right foot with a goal 25 seconds into the third. Tyler Cooper added a Generals goal less than three minutes later to make it 6-2, but Stefan Owens scored twice and Kent scored again to cut the deficit to 6-5 with 17 seconds left.

McCanney put the game on ice with an empty-net shorthanded goal just before the final horn.

Cole Ouellette notched three assists in the loss, and Makem Demers collected two of his own.

Avery Sturtz faced 34 shots for the Nordiques and turned away 28. Joey Stanizzi made 24 saves for the Generals.

Northeast scored on its lone power play, while Maine was 2 for 6.
