The Matignon girl’s ice hockey team enjoyed a successful start to the postseason yesterday, defeating Central Catholic 7-0 in the preliminary round of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) D2 state tournament.

With the win, the Warriors advance to the first round, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, to face the winner of CambridgePembroke, which will compete this evening in at 6:40 p.m. at the Hobomock Arena.

Lexie Turner netted a hat-trick in the win for the Warriors, while Brynn MacPherson recorded three assists and one goal. Dana Smullen recorded her 11th shutout with 10 saves.

“(It) was a good win, but bigger games ahead,” said Matignon coach Anthony Cornacchia, who has guided the Warriors to a 14-5-2 record this winter.

Yesterday’s win extends the Green and Gold’s winning streak to five games, dating back to a 7-0 win earlier this month over St. Joseph Prep/Mt. Alvernia.

Matignon is now 2-1 in preliminary rounds, dating back to the 2016-17 season. They last won a first-round game in 2016 when they edged Milton, 5-4, before advancing two more rounds to the D2 semifinals where they would fall to Notre Dame Academy by a score of 9-3. NDA would advance to the championship round where they would defeat Wellesley, 3-1, at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

NEC High Schools: Boy’s Ice Hockey Top 10 Week Three Poll (Jan. 6th)

NEC Boy's Hockey WK3

By NEC High Schools | @NEC_HighSchools

Luke Evangelista‘s hat trick against Marblehead helped Winthrop defeat the Headers for an important Northeastern Conference (NEC) win on Saturday, which provided the Vikings with the top spot in this week’s poll.

Marblehead held the top spot in the first two polls, but will look to regroup on Wednesday when they face sixth-ranked Saugus in another important NEC North clash.

GloucesterDanvers and Lynn remain in the third, fourth and fifth positions, respectively, while Medford and Somerville each moved-up. The Mustangs’ tie with the Sachems helped the Blue and White secure the seventh position, while a pair of NEC South wins over Revere/Malden and Swampscott helped the Highlanders move-up two spots. The Highlanders, who haven’t lost since falling to Cambridge last month, will look to continue their current momentum on Wednesday when they host Watertown.

NEC High Schools: Boy’s Ice Hockey Top 10 Week Two Poll (Dec. 31st)

NEC Boys WK2

By NEC High Schools | @NEC_HighSchools

It has been a BUSY few weeks since we unveiled our initial Northeastern Conference (NEC) boy’s ice hockey poll two weeks ago, but now it is time to share our week two poll of the 2018-19 season, which once again finds Marblehead in the top spot. The Headers moved to 6-0 overall with some impressive wins recently over third-ranked Gloucester (8-3), Westfield (3-1) and Danvers (2-1).

Marblehead will look to continue its early season momentum later this week, especially on Saturday against second-ranked Winthrop. After falling to Falmouth (Maine) by a score of 3-1, the Vikings rebounded with a 5-4 win over fifth-ranked Lynn. Winthrop will face-off against eighth-ranked Medford on Wednesday – the Mustangs cracked the poll for the first time this season with an impressive 7-3 win over ninth-ranked Beverly. We’ll certainly keep our eyes on the Mustangs going forward.
