Connecticut got a chip shot 40 seconds into the championship game in Portland, Maine, this afternoon and the Batavia Ramparts spent nearly all of three periods chasing the lead.
The Ramparts lost 3-0.
Goal two for Connecticut was a rebound off the goalie, said coach John Zola.
Goal three came on an empty net play at the end of the game.
"Everyone played their heart out," Zola said. "Both teams played very, very hard."
The coach said he doesn't believe a Batavia team has ever advanced as far as the Ramparts did this season. At the age level of the Ramparts, the northeast regional championship would have been as far as they could have advanced.
