Outstanding weekendfor Marlborough boys
The Marlborough boys had about as good a weekend as can be had in Central Massachusetts, defeating both Groton Dunstable and Hudson, the defending Division 3 state champs.
Junior goalie Ben Wickleman shone against the Crusaders, stopping 44 shots as Marlborough held on for a 2-1 win.
“He was definitely the difference,” said coach Mike O’Brien . “They’re a big, strong, fast team. I thought we played OK. We hung in there. A high school kid making 44 saves in a game — that’s outstanding goaltending play.”
Senior Nick Mosca has led a sturdy defensive unit for the 7-2 Panthers, while Steve Lampedecchio , who spent the last two seasons as a grinding third-liner, has been great up front with eight goals in nine games.
“With guys moving on, he had an opportunity to play on the top line,” O’Brien said. “He’s still doing a great job killing penalties, but he found an additional tool in his box. Now he’s scoring goals.”
Medway senior leads scoring against Medfield
Senior Jack Kilty scored three goals to lift Medway over Medfield, 6-2, in a battle of undefeated teams. The Mustangs moved into first place in the Tri-Valley League with the win. Kilty has nine goals and eight assists through Medway’s 5-0-3 start.
