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.

If you’re free tomorrow, Saturday, April 22nd, to be exact, and near Braintree High School, then I highly recommend you stopping by/checking out the 2017 Chowda Cup Final between Foxborough and Catholic Memorial, which is scheduled to commence at 4:00 p.m.

Both teams earned spots in this weekend’s championship after claiming back-to-back wins earlier this week in the opening and second rounds.

Foxboro scored back-to-back wins over Mansfield and Norwell, while Catholic Memorial beat Hanover and Scituate. CM’s win over the Sailors was a hard-fought 10-9 overtime victory, while the Warriors (Foxborough) won both of their games by one-goal.
