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.

Massachusetts High School Lax Round-Up: Checking-In On The West

MASS LAX HS UPDATE NEW

By NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

Our Massachusetts High School Lacrosse Round-Up has returned – yes, we’re officially back for the remainder of the season, so make sure to circle back each week for various posts on the numerous teams, including our various social media round-ups, too.

For this week’s post, we’re shedding some light on Western Massachusetts teams, including Longmeadow, Mount Greylock and others! 

First, congratulations to Longmeadow’s Kristopher Campbell, who was tabbed last week’s Epoch/USL High School Boys’ Player of the Week following an impressive 11-point effort in his team’s 14-10 win over Amherst-Pelham.

Longmeadow, which is in-action today against Northampton (9-1), will visit Harvard Stadium on Saturday, May 6th to face-off against Lincoln-Sudbury.

Last season, the Warriors defeated the Lancers in Amherst by a score of 15-11. The game was followed by a New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) tilt between Amherst College and Colby College.

Following this season’s meeting, fans are encouraged to stick around and cheer on the Boston Cannons, who will play their home-opener against the Chesapeake Bayhawks. Face-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Jeff Stripp and the Mount Greylock Mounties (10-0) captured their 10th contest on Monday, defeating Pittsfield by a score of 17-6. Reilly Parker and Pat Storie highlighted their team’s 10th win of the season by combining for 12 goals and four assists, while Owen Politis netted a hat-trick.

The Mounties return to the field on Saturday when they host Lee, which also defeated Pittsfield this week – Wednesday, to be exact – by a score of 20-9.

Hoosac Valley received a big-boots from Casey Meczywor on Wednesday as he netted seven goals, while dishing out a pair of assists in his team’s 13-4 win over Taconic. The win was the Hurricanes’ third of the season.

As noted in yesterday’s Berkshire Eagle, Hoosac Valley led 8-0 after the opening session and 9-0 by halftime.
