- Boys Hockey, MIAA State Tournament Elite 8 Matchup
- 6:00 pm @ #1 Scituate
- Hobomock Arena – 132 Hobomock Street Pembroke, MA 02359
Boys Hockey moves on to the Elite 8 in the MIAA State Tournament by winning both contests last week. On Wednesday, the boys beat Northbridge 3-0. Brian DeLisio broke a scoreless tie early in the third period before Logan Casey and Brady Leonard added goals late to seal the first-round victory. On Sunday evening the boys took care of business against the #9-seeded Pembroke. The Titans found themselves in the penalty box three times during the first period, which allowed Ben Rehal to open the scoring for the Hawks and take a 1-0 advantage. The Hawks tacked on four more, including a pair of third-period goals from Brian Swaczyk to finish off the 5-0 win. Goaltender Kyle Mahan continues to be stellar thus far in the playoffs, as he’s pitched shutouts in two consecutive games to open the postseason. Head Coach Mark Leonard has a confident Hawks team poised to take on the #1-seed Scituate on Wednesday evening at 6:00.
Girls Hockey entered the MIAA State Tournament as the #17 seed, and won their first-round matchup against Plymouth by a score of 2-1 (OT). Sophomore Penny Levine-Stein recorded a goal in the contest while teammate Ella Tucker was stellar in net. In the second round of the tournament, the girls faced off against a very tough St. Mary’s team. The girls dropped the hard-fought contest by a score of 3-1. Looking ahead to next year, a young Essex Tech group is excited to be a big piece of our co-op program.
Boys Basketball entered the MIAA State Tournament as the #45 seed and took on Gloucester in a preliminary round match-up on the road. The hot-shooting Fishermen made it tough for any offense to get going, and took down the Hawks by a score of 76-45. A team that graduates nine seniors looks ahead to joining the Cape Ann League next season. On behalf of the entire athletic staff, we recognize those seniors who displayed toughness, leadership, and intensity, throughout a very competitive season. We wish them the best in their endeavors beyond basketball.
