    The Blue Devils senior forward scored a pair of goals off assists from fellow senior linemate Gunnar Wade and Lewiston also added two power-play goals to top Bangor 5-2 in a Class A North boys’ hockey semifinal Saturday night at Androscoggin Bank Colisee.

    It’s the fourth year in a row — and fifth time in six years — that the Blue Devils have defeated the Rams in the playoffs. No. 1 Lewiston now advances to the regional final next Tuesday at the Colisee, where it will face longtime rival St. Dominic Academy.

    less two minutes into the third,Dionne’s second goal, proved to be too much for Bangor to come back from. A shot from the high slot eluded Bangor goalie Jacob Henry and made it a 4-1 game.

    ” Lewiston coach Jamie Belleau said. “They listened. They made sure there was a high guy. They were leaving the middle open, and we hit him twice. You’re pleased when kids get rewarded for listening,“Three lines is important. They’ve worked hard all year. I’m really happy for them today, doing the right things.”

    outshooting the fourth-seeded Rams (12-8) 6-1 early. The sixth shot put the Blue Devils on the board. Dionne had the fourth shot in a short sequence,The Blue Devils (17-2) came out hot, and it made it past Henry 5:16 in.

    and halfway through it turned into a two-man advantage,The Rams went on the power play soon after,Authentic Maliek Collins Jersey, but Lewiston goalie Conrad Albert and the Blue Devils defense stood tall and turned away four shots.

    Bangor kept its foot on the gas until a penalty of its own put the brakes on the Rams’ offensive pressure. Henry then had to make two point-blank saves on the penalty kill with 30 seconds left in the first to keep it a 1-0 game.

    The Blue Devils did convert on that power play when it carried over into the second period. Sam Frechette finished off an assist from Jayden Wilson.

    you want to try to capitalize on other teams’ mistakes,” Belleau said. “Special teams can make or break a game,Womens Maliek Collins Jersey, typically in playoff hockey,“You want to stay out of the box,Womens Charles Tapper Jersey, so it’s certainly a good motivation for our kids to execute well and then put a couple up on the power play.”

    The Rams responded with a breakaway goal from Reid Higgs exactly two minutes later, but Dustin Larochelle scored another Lewiston power-play goal 59 seconds after that to prevent Bangor from fully seizing momentum.

    “That was the biggest difference-maker. We knew special teams was going to be huge,” Bangor coach Quinn Paradis said. “We didn’t kill well enough. Two of the penalties we took we paid for.”

    seeing some of the most shots he had all season,Womens Rico Gathers Jersey,Albert, stopped another breakaway by David Brown seven minutes in.

    and if those went in it could have been a different game,Womens Byron Jones Jersey,“We had a couple breakaways in the second period that we didn’t finish on,” Paradis said.

    despite Henry having to make a few tough saves,Bangor finally killed off a penalty late in the second,Womens Randy Gregory Jersey, to keep it a two-goal game after two periods.

    Brown scored off a rebound of a Higgs shot to cut the deficit back to two with seven minutes left, but Alex Robert pounded the nail into the coffin with 1:31 remaining.

    “We knew it was going to be a tough game. They played us tough (during the regular season),” Belleau said. “It’s what we expect. You expect every team to give you everything they’ve got. Bangor’s a good team.”

    Benson Mayowa has taken the field for the last time in a Dallas Cowboys' uniform.

    the team has decided to release the veteran defensive lineman as they work to get the team under the 2018 salary cap. The 26-year-old joined the Cowboys in 2016 out of free agency on a three-year,NFL transactions for March 7, $8.25 million deal and after delivering a promising six sacks that season -- good enough for a team-high -- he'd see reduced playing time in 2017 en route to landing only one sack and 21 total tackles.

    initially, money that will go towards the new franchise tag on defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, the soon-to-come megadeal on All-Pro guard Zack Martin and some other roster housekeeping. The Cowboys are expected to make additional moves which will likely result in Mayowa being the first,The decision to release Mayowa will free up approximately $2.75 million in cap space, but not the last to be given his walking papers.

    The Dallas Cowboys missed out on the playoffs this past season, but a talented core remains in place for the franchise.

    The Cowboys can still boast of one of the better offensive lines in the league, while quarterback Dak Prescott has yet untapped potential. Running back Ezekiel Elliott may also be set up for a breakthrough year in 2018.

    and in order to do that,It will be absolutely essential for the Cowboys to keep their offense on track for the 2018 season, they will need to make some improvements on their passing.

    it appears that the team's decision-makers want to bring back the core members of that unit,In the hopes of improving their passing offense, including wide receiver Dez Bryant.

    The good news for Bryant is that one very important member of the Cowboys' franchise still believes that he is one of the better wide receivers in the league.

    In a new video posted by the Cowboys' official Twitter account,Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones stated emphatically that he still believes Bryant is one of the top receivers in the league.

    when Jones was asked directly if he still wants to have Bryant on the team next season,Aside from that,Womens Jaylon Smith Jersey, he offered a clear "yes" in response.

    It still looks as though there may be contract details that the Cowboys and Bryant will need to hammer out if they are going to join forces in the upcoming season, but the fact that Jones in particular wants to bring the wide receiver back should help negotiations along.

    Big changes could be made to the Cowboys' roster over the course of this offseason,Authentic Charles Tapper Jersey, but it would not be surprising if a familiar face is still lining up as the number one wide receiver come opening day.

    It's nearly a foregone conclusion the Dallas Cowboys will draft a wide receiver in 2018.

    the team has now met with a growing list of prospects at the position. Owner Jerry Jones expects Dez Bryant back in uniform in 2018,Between the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine,Authentic Rico Gathers Jersey, but that doesn't resolve the void left by a departing Brice Butler and the lack of speed opposite Bryant -- two problems that can be solved with the right pick this spring.

    202 lb. frame is solid and his wingspan is massive which, combined with the aforementioned speed and ability to separate, could make him a deep-threat to be reckoned with at the professional level. He's aggressive when battling for the ball and can easily pop the lid off of the defense's third level,Authentic Byron Jones Jersey,His 6-foot-2, but his focus is inconsistent which leads to more drops than you'd like to see with the role he'd be tasked with carrying.

    The good news is the drops are focus-based and not a knock to his ability, meaning if he can be coached up at the next level -- including opening up his route tree a bit -- he could be a real terror.

    for example),Authentic Randy Gregory Jersey, he's been known to make up for it with his overall skill set. He failed to break the 1, but his 2,040 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns are solid WR2 numbers (by comparison) and could make him an attractive grab in Day Three,And while most of his measurables won't floor you (his vertical,000-yard mark in his three seasons with the Tigers wherein they hoped he'd become a true WR1, if not later on Day Two -- particularly given the fact he's not afraid to block downfield either, one of the biggest nods to Terrance Williams.

    Williams posted a 4.52s 40-yard dash at the Combine in 2013,For reference, nearly a full second slower than did Cain in 2018.
