The Yarmouth Mariners fought hard in a 4-3 loss to Ottawa at the Centennial Cup Monday afternoon.

Yarmouth went up 1-0 early in the game thanks to a goal from Ethan Hoffe, but the Senators would even it up later in the period.

Ottawa scored three in the second period, including a power-play goal.

Reilly Mayne and Michael Marquez scored to make it close in the third, but the Sens held on for the win.

Joey Lovullo took the loss in net.

Mariners Head Coach and GM Laurie Barron says it was a disappointing loss.

“We fell apart a little bit in the 2nd period, a couple of undisciplined penalties. I wasn’t in love with the officiating, but you take your medicine,” said Barron.

He was proud however of the attempted comeback in the third period.

Barron adds that things are fast out there at the national level.

“The speed in this tournament is next level. It’s taken us a little bit of time to adjust to it.”

The loss means the Mariners will need lots of help in order to quality for the playoffs, the top three teams in each division make it.

Brooks will need to win both of their remaining games, and Ottawa will have to help as well.

Yarmouth will need a regulation win in their final game Wednesday against Terrebonne.
