2022-2023 Hockomock Girls Hockey Preview

Canton

2021-2022 Record: 18-7-0
2021-2022 Finish: Reached Div. 2 Final
Coach: Nikki Petrich
Canton has won four of the five Hockomock titles since league play began, including three in a row, and last winter the Bulldogs went to their fourth state title game in the past six seasons. It was an incredible stretch of success under Dennis Aldrich, who stepped down in the off-season, and the Bulldogs don’t look ready to slow down anytime soon. First-year coach Nikki Petrich, a former Northeastern University standout, comes to Canton after being an associate head coach for Austin Prep, helping them win a pair of Div. 1 state titles, and she has an experienced roster aiming for another trip to the Garden in March.

The Bulldogs can count on plenty of senior leadership this winter, starting up front with forwards Audrey Koen and Ellie Bohane. Koen is the team’s top returning scorer with 12 goals and eight assists last year and will be a focal point in the attack. Juniors Maggie Dailey, Lilah Spinelli, and Anna Lehan also contributed important minutes and important goals during last year’s playoff run and could be ready to step into bigger roles this season. As always, Canton can reload with talented underclassmen and freshmen Christina Curran, Abby Stock, and Izzy Cusack could also feature in a deep forward group.

Defense has long been a strength for Canton and it starts in goal with senior Carolyn Durand. The four-year starter has been one of the best shot stoppers in the state since her freshman year and gives the team a strong foundation in its own zone. Senior Maya Battista is another four-year starter and has emerged as a force on the blue line, both with her work in the defensive zone as well as her goals on the other end of the ice. Juniors Tori Carr and Devan Spinale will be back on the blue line with freshmen Kayleigh Koen and Georgia Campbell part of a talented rookie class that could contribute right away.

“We are looking to build off of the success of last year and continue to make sure that every single girl in our program has an incredible experience representing their town, high school, and family,” Petrich said. With a senior captain in net, a senior captain on the blue line, and two senior captains leading the way for your forwards, our team is going to compete every single game. A strong freshman class rounds out what is truly a team with extensive experience playing in meaningful games come the end of February.”

Franklin

2021-2022 Record: 6-11-4
2021-2022 Finish: Reached Div. 2 Round of 32
Coach: Mike Lubin
Franklin is the only team other than Canton to have won a Hockomock League title and the Panthers come into the season with a more experienced, and deeper, roster to try and get back on top. Former assistant Mike Lubin has taken over as head coach after the retirement of longtime coach Margie Burke and he has a balanced lineup to work with this winter.

The Panthers will be hoping to be more solid on the defensive end of the ice this season, building on the structure they have created in all three zones. Senior Shaw Downing is a four-year varsity player and a dynamic skater along the blue line, not only being sure on the puck in her own zone but also capable of carrying the play into the attack. Junior Lindsay Dennett continues to improve each season and sophomore goalie Izzy Brown is coming off an impressive rookie campaign between the pipes.

Sophomore Julia Flynn was the team’s leading scorer last year and she is back to power the Franklin offense. Senior Lindsay Atkinson is also back, after missing all of last winter with an injury. Atkinson had a big sophomore season and will be a huge addition to the top line. Senior forwards Dana Stott and Molly Hurley bring two-way strength to the forward line.

“We’re a close group with great leadership and a good mix of young talent,” Lubin said. “We’re all excited to get the season started and build on our strong team chemistry from last year.”

Hockomock Stars

2021-2022 Record: 3-16-1 (formerly Mansfield/Oliver Ames)
2021-2022 Finish: Reached Div. 1 Round of 32
Coach: Jamie Mullin
The biggest co-op team in the Hockomock League is getting bigger. The Mansfield/Oliver Ames Warriors, which also featured skaters from Foxboro, now includes players from Attleboro, Milford, North Attleboro, and Taunton and will be going by the name of Hockomock Stars.

Jamie Mullen returns for her second year at the helm of the program and now has some more players to work into her lineup. The Stars lost some key players to graduation, including longtime goalie Jess Widdop and speedy forward Sam Ledin, and also have to replace the production of last year’s leading scorer Kylie O’Keefe (20 points). Leading the offense will be a pair of Mansfield juniors: Cammy Shenteler, fresh off a 7-goal, 9-assist season, and Maeve Anastasia, who totaled 11 points with six goals last year.

North Attleboro has four players in the mix with junior Ava O’Dwyer, sophomore Grace Cabeceiras, and freshmen Brittany Nordbeck and Alana Rice. Attleboro (Emily Davignon, Avery Drainville, McKenzie Sullivan) has three players, Taunton (Hannah Albert, Kendell Scheralis) has two, and Milford has one (Lindsay Casman).

Foxboro’s Mya Waras (five points) and Mansfield’s Ava Adams (five points) will also be key pieces in the attack. Foxboro junior Macy Quinn is back to anchor the blue line for the Stars while Davignon will be between the pipes.

2022-2023 Hockomock Girls Hockey Preview

King Philip

2021-2022 Record: 18-5-0
2021-2022 Finish: Reached Div. 2 Round of 32
Coach: Ken Assad

King Philip is coming off a really strong year. The Warriors won 18 games last winter but saw the season come to an end in the opening round of the state tournament. KP scored 93 goals in 23 games in 2021-22 but graduated the bulk of one of the state’s top scoring lines, so will need new players to step into bigger roles in search of the program’s first Hock title.

While the top scoring line may look a little different this winter, KP does return its top goal scorer. Junior Kelly Holmes is back to lead the offense and is one of the most dynamic players in the league. Senior Katarina Precobb and junior Nicole McDonald will add more punch to the top line this season. The Warriors will have decent depth in the attacking zone, with senior Sydney Cloutier, junior Rylie Ryan, and freshmen Cam O’Shea and Kate McGann each ready to provide an attacking punch. Eighth graders Tayla McDuff, Rylan McKillop, Ella Morgan, Erin Steck, and Molly Murphy should all get their chance to contribute.

In the defensive zone, KP will have plenty of experience to try and keep other teams out. Seniors Brielle Hearon, Mara Boldy, and Emma Sullivan will all be back on the blue line, providing leadership and physicality to slow down the opposition. Freshmen Lydia Maxwell and Grace Lehan-Allen both saw time as eighth graders and will build on that important year of varsity action. Eighth-grader Calleigh Brady should see time in defense this year. Goalie is another position of strength for the Warriors with senior Mallory Johnston in her third year as a starter and classmate Haley Bright backing her up.

“I never call it a rebuilding year,” said KP coach Ken Assad. “With the returning players and newcomers, I believe with hard work and not taking any nights off we can be in the hunt for the Hockomock title and get into the tournament.”




2022-2023 Hockomock Girls Hockey Preview

Stoughton/Sharon

2021-2022 Record:
2021-2022 Finish: Missed postseason
Coach: Chad Kelley
Stoughton/Sharon continues to be a young program that is building up its numbers. With only one senior and two juniors in the program, the Black Knights will be focusing on youth and trying to build a foundation for future seasons. After a close loss in the season opener, Stoughton/Sharon continues to find ways to stay competitive even with a smaller roster of just 14 players.

Eighth-grader Sarah Scappaticci from Sharon will be the starting goalie this season. She made 34 stops in the opener against Cambridge and is already showing that she is a skilled player between the pipes. Brockton junior Molly Corvino will be one of the leaders in the defensive zone, along with classmate Samantha Calapai. Both players are solid in their own zone but can push the team into the attack. Stoughton freshman Addison Strunk will also be one of the defenders in the top two pairings.

Stoughton’s Ava Buckley is the lone senior on the team. The Assumption-commit will be the focal point for the Black Knights on the offensive end of the ice. Sharon eighth grader Ella Cummings has a lot of skill on the puck and already opened her varsity account with a goal against Cambridge. Sharon sophomores Peri Rodman and Heather Kelly and Stoughton sophomore Leila Uchani return to the forward lines. Stoughton freshmen Julia Monaghan, Meghan McGowan, Amanda Reid, and Stoughton eighth graders Nya’Lia Lindsey and Julia Henein will give the Black Knights depth up front.

“We are a young team with only one senior and two juniors in our program,” said head coach Chad Kelley. “Ava Buckley and Molly Corvino are our captains for this season. Both Ava and Molly have been tremendous with our young group. They are great examples for others to model.”

The front line of Sami Shore, Emily Sawyer, and Ahunna James were too much on both sides of the net. Shore and James went back-to-back on kills in the first and an ace from setter Madison Asprelli put KP up 9-4 in the first set and the Warriors never relented. James had a big hit and then on the following point had a block and the kill to make 18-12. Olivia O’Neil and Missy Canning both got points down the stretch of the first. Westwood got its first lead in the match at 4-3 in the second set, but a Shore kill off the block put KP up 7-6 and the Warriors never relinquished the lead. Sawyer was in charge both in the middle and the outside and setter Kiera Hagen dropped a push into a hole in the Wolverines defense. After a James kill, KP led 21-10. O’Neil would secure the second set with a swing off the block. Things were pretty comfortable in the third, as KP scored five straight, including a block from Canning, to make it 12-7. Again KP never let off the gas, extending the lead to as many as 12 points, with James rising up and blasting a few big kills. KP will face No. 6 Melrose in the state semifinal.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – King Philip ended the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s Div. 1 Sweet Sixteen game at McGrath Stadium with momentum. The Warriors had a flurry of chances to try and find a winning goal, including a corner with less than 20 seconds remaining in regulation.

After an upset of No. 10 Natick in the opening round, KP felt like it had No. 7 Bishop Feehan on the ropes too.

Click here for a photo gallery from this game.

But, seconds into the overtime period, the Shamrocks sent a shock through the KP bench. Goalie Haley Bright put her arms up to let Ava Meehan’s shot from distance go. The ball didn’t go wide or in the goal, since there was no touch either would have given KP possession, but unluckily the ball hit the post and bounced into the crease. Senior Lauren Barreiro (two assists) reacted first and intelligently carried the ball out of danger.

It was a heart-in-mouth moment for the Warriors, but one from which they very quickly recovered. With all of the space that seven-on-seven afforded, KP was off and running in OT.

Kelly Holmes nearly won it on the break when her shot to the far corner was brilliantly stopped by the left leg of Feehan goalie Isabelle Basse. Then, Holmes got space on the right side and played the ball across the middle. A couple of deflections got it on the stick of Mara Boldy, who slid the ball towards the crease where Abby MacDonald was stationed on the post.

The sophomore opened the scoring early in the first quarter and she ended the night with a deft tip, lifting KP to a thrilling 4-3 win and a spot in the quarterfinal.

“Going into tournament, we had a little bit rocky of a finish on our regular season and I just kept emphasizing, it’s a fresh start,” said first-year KP coach Kaitlyn Wilder. “We have to prove ourselves. It doesn’t matter who we face or who comes along the way, we have to focus on ourselves and play our best field hockey.”

“They’ve been showing up. The pressure of tournament, being the underdogs, they love it.”

Feehan got off to a decent start on a chilly night, putting KP back in its defensive half of the field for the opening couple minutes, but when the Warriors got forward for the first time they grabbed the lead. Good work by Nicole McDonald and Makenzie McDevitt gave the Warriors possession down the left side of the field. The ball was played into the middle and MacDonald swept a shot past the unsighted goalie for a 1-0 lead.

The hosts were undeterred and started to ramp up the pressure. One corner was blasted from the top but tipped wide and Charlotte Wymes almost set up Meehan for a goal but the effort went wide via a deflection.

KP went into the first intermission up by a goal, but the lead lasted only three minutes into the second. Lily Marchand was all alone in the middle and her first-time shot gave Bright no chance.

The Shamrocks dominated the second, but KP did have one glorious chance to regain the lead. Leah Santoro had a nifty move to lift the ball over the defender’s stick and race free on the right side. She played a pass into MacDonald, who was one-on-one with the goalie but pulled her shot wide.

Feehan took advantage of the let-off and took its first lead with 1:29 left before halftime. Kay Murphy’s aerial just evaded the stick of Bright and dipped under the bar to make it 2-1.

Instead of being the moment that the higher seed started to pull away, KP bounced right back in the third. On their first corner of the night, the Warriors equalized. Holmes collected the pass and let rip with a rocket into the far corner.

Bright preserved the tie, with help from defenders Charlotte Raymond and Barreiro, making a pair of saves from close-range before it was cleared. There was nothing Bright could do with five minutes to play in the third, as Meehan played a perfect ball into the stick of Marchand on the edge of the crease for her second of the night.

The message on the KP bench between quarters was to maintain the intensity and the Warriors carried that onto the field in the fourth. Holmes would again be the spark, providing KP with a lift on both ends and getting her second goal to level the score. It came off another corner. This time Holmes faked the initial shot, ducked inside the defender, and flicked a shot inside the far post.

“Unreal,” Wilder said about Holmes. “She can handle pressure. She knows that they’re on her and she’s like, ‘I’ve got it coach.’ I trust her and her instincts and her game sense. She’s just such an incredible athlete and her presence on the field puts an extra layer into our players. They find that extra gear because they see Kelly find that extra gear.”

Basse would be very busy in the final 15 minutes, as KP was the team creating the best scoring chances. McDonald had a tip in front denied by the Feehan goalie and then Boldy had a hard shot through traffic kicked aside as well. KP had one last chance, earning a corner with 21 seconds to go. Boldy again had a big shot saved and McDonald had a tip from close range kicked away, as the rebound was inches from the stick of Barreiro at the back post.

The game would head to an extra period and MacDonald would get to play hero, finding the touch that secured the upset and keeps KP’s season alive.

Wilder reflected, “That’s our team motto, it’s on the back of my shirt, is resilient. We fight for what we have on this team. Everyone shows up every day and we play resilient.”

She continued, “You have to play your game and it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re on top at the end of the game that’s being resilient, that’s being persistent, and that’s the team we’ve grown into this season.”

King Philip (13-5-2) will take on the winner of No. 2 (and defending state champion) Andover and No. 15 Acton-Boxboro at a date and time to be determined.

#23 Beverly, 0 @ #10 King Philip, 6 – FinalClick here for a Photo Gallery from this match. Addisyn Lamothe-Vaughn and Heidi Lawrence each scored twice to lead the Warriors to a dominating win in the playoff opener. Ella Pisani opened the scoring with a line drive, 40-yard free kick that went just under the bar. That seemed to open the floodgates for KP. Pisani played a nice pass out to the left for Lawrence to run onto. She cut it back across the edge of the box to Dani Lomuscio, who calmly took a couple of touches before firing past the Beverly keeper. Lamothe-Vaughn got into the act when she met Danielle Gresham’s corner at the near post and nodded home. KP quickly made it 4-0 when Lawrence raced past her marker, rounded the keeper, and scored despite the effort of the defender on the line. Lawrence got her second shortly after the break when she ran onto Lomuscio’s first-time ball over the top. Lamothe-Vaughn got her brace off another corner, this time reacting to a loose ball that dropped in the box. Freshman goalie Lauren Obara made her varsity debut midway through the second half and made three saves to preserve the clean sheet.
