With just a few seconds left Austin Wood shot on the doorstep and missed the goal only for Tyson French to get the rebound and score as the buzzer expired on the first half.
It wasn’t the only buzzer beater for the combo Morse/Boothbay team as Bjorn Lagord buried one at the buzzer for the end of the 3rd period.
They had enough answers to pull out the 6-3 win.
The Lawrence/Winslow team had plenty of opportunities to score but failed to execute the last pass to get a close shot on goal. Transition was the Outlaws’ bread and butter as their first goal came from Liem Fortin in an unsettled situation.
Their second goal came the exact way as Wyatt Poulin scored through contact on transition.
The buzzer beaters were killers for Lawrence as they went down 3-1 at half and 4-1 after three periods. Lawrence scored a minute into the fourth quarter but Morse was able to respond each time. The Shipbuilders took advantage of the Outlaws inability to clear, adding an insurance goal off a turnover in the final period.
Goalie Jacob York kept the Lawrence team in the game, tallying 16 saves with only 6 goals given up but was under pressure most of the game. Fortin lead the team with two goals and Tate Scott had two assists. Five different players scored a goal for Morse, lead by Lagord with two. He and Alcide Demers tied for a game high three points.
Lawrence falls to 2-8 and plays at Camden Hills next Friday.
Morse moves to 5-6 and plays at Gardiner on Tuesday.
