New England High Schools: Keep Your Eyes On Hingham & Norwell

NS HS LAX

By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

If you’re a fan of the Hingham Harbormen then you couldn’t have asked for a better start to their season.

Hingham enters the new week with a 2-0 mark, thanks to wins over Catholic Memorial and St. John’s Prep (Danvers). Both wins secured them the second position in today’s BostonLax.net week two poll, which found Xaverian Brothers in the top spot, while Boston College High School secured the third position, thanks to a win over Cohasset.

Rounding out the site’s top five positions were Duxbury and Lincoln-Sudbury, checking-in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Hingham checked-in first in the Wicked Local South boys power ranking, while NorwellMarshfield, and Plymouth South secured the second, third, and fourth positions, respectively.

The Harbormen face a very interesting test on Saturday, April 13th when they host Simsbury (Conn.) at 1 p.m., and will certainly need another solid outing from Cooper Dainton, who netted four goals in his team’s win over the Eagles this past weekend.

In today’s Wicked Local South girls power rankings, Norwell secured the top spot, thanks to a 2-0 start, while Braintree, Cohasset, and Hingham checked-in second, third, and fourth, respectively.

Norwell, which returned 23 players from last year’s MIAA D2 state championship squad, has commenced its season with convincing wins over Foxboro and Westwood. The win over the Wolverines – an 8-7 victory – should provide the Clippers with some momentum heading into a week where they will face Hingham and Medfield. Both games won’t be easy.

Medfield enters the early week tilt with Norwell with a 1-0 record, thanks to a 19-4 win over Norwood last Friday. The win over the Mustangs was also the Warriors’ initial Tri-Valley League (TVL) victory, too.

The Countdown For Cohasset-Newton North Is ON!

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

The countdown to Cohasset-Newton North boys lacrosse is officially on!

As seen on Twitter this morning, Cohasset coach James Beaudoin tweeted a graphic that publicized his team’s season-opener against the Tigers on Saturday, April 1.

Newton North will be the host with the game is scheduled to commence at 12:00 p.m. at Newton North Dickinson Stadium.

As noted in this morning’s tweet, the past two contests have needed an extra session to determine a winner, so could we make it three-straight overtime meetings? We’ll have to wait and see!

Last season, Cohasset advanced to the MIAA Division 3 South quarterfinals before falling to Norwell by a score of 11-8, while Newton North advanced to the MIAA Division 1 South Finals where they lost to Boston College High School, 10-6.

Mass. HS Football: Brockton 21, BC High 0

By Brian Willwerth 

BROCKTON, MA – This was a case of three games rolled into one: a defensive battle, a game-changing goal line stand, and a blowout. In the end, the Brockton Boxers shut out the BC High Eagles on Friday night, 21-0. The victory proved to be a bit of revenge for Brockton. Last year, the Boxers were shut out by the Eagles, 42-0.

Just two minutes into the game, the contest was delayed for about an hour due to lightning off in the distance. When play resumed, the result was a defensive struggle for much of the first half. Neither team could get much going offensively. Penalties were almost as numerous as first downs.

Perhaps the turning point of the game came just before halftime. With the Eagles driving, quarterback Brendan Craven took off on third down, and as he was trying to dive into the end zone, he was stood up forcibly by the Boxers’ defense. On fourth and goal, Craven tried the quarterback sneak, but again Brockton’s defense was up to the challenge. The goal line stand kept the game scoreless at halftime.

A momentum changer?  You bet.

The home team came out and dominated the second half. While the defense continued to pitch a shutout, the offense found the end zone three times.  Quarterback Austin Roberts got his team on the board with a quarterback sneak in the third quarter. His 20-yard run in the fourth quarter put the icing on the cake. In between his scores, Aaron LeClair found the end zone from ten yards out.
