[QUOTE]In Response to Re: EMASS Girls Hockey 2011-2012 : hopefully you're from the MIAA. if so WHY WOULD THE GIRLS NOT HAVE 3 REFS? I was happy to see that AC won but 2 refs? Are you kidding me? What's the extra cost $75...what an embarrasment. total lack of respect for girls hockey. How wuch did those girls make for you this year in Stoneham? I have to believe that an extra $75 would be covered...this organization should be ashamed. They are a for profit company. Can anyone please start a new company that will compete with these people? I KNOW you'd get the support of 90% of AD's in MA. Great job by FP this year. clearly not as talented as other teams and still brought them to the final game. AC was dominant from srart to finish. AD with a shorty...made my day.

Nope not from MIAA, but the MIAA is covered by having a rule on their tournament rule page stating the girls get 2 refs (and they did an OK job). The rule would need to be changed. Agreed, they should have had 3, no doubt, but lets face it, they don't go outside their written rules ever, and even in some cases, using them to fit their needs. I agree, get rid of them, someone!!! Everyone go onto the fox news web page and go into the stories section and tell FOX to investigate them, I bet if anyone can find out the ins and outs of this organization it would be them. But if we just try to use this blog it wont work.
As far as FP goes, he had two extremelly talented girls (I think one was referred to as a phenom in this blog) from Medford show up at his doorstep, it was just a matter of time this year before they clicked with the 3rd girl on that line. Kudos to the goalie coach, whoever that is, cause that was what kept them in games, and considering this was her first year with ST. M's that's who should get the medal, she was a GOLDEN FIND. Much the same with AC coach, who did what she could, but really, having the talents deep on 2 lines, with a 3rd that could score,was a luck of the draw (maybe a new freshman phenom???). Not that the coach's dont deserve credit, they both did a good job taking their teams to the final dance. Just not sure I would say that ST. M's was "not as talented as other teams", they just had to put a new squad together early on and they did. FP was still leaving a "hanger" on the blue line during the game, not sure who really wants to win that way, but AC shut that down too! So if that's coaching, good for him, and good for AC coach for recognizing it EVERY TIME and getting it covered.
AC also obtained a great new Asst. Coach this year, with lots of coaching experience which may have played into the success of this team too. Seems like MT got it together this year with balance of the lines, and not mix and matching all season as it appeared happened last year. She will be a great coach for the future of womens hockey though.
