Bantam Ben O'Brien kicking butt

Need another reason to spend time in a hockey rink?  Head over to Bajko at 3:10 this Saturday to catch Ben O'Brien and his fellow WYH Bantams take on Wellesley. Ben was recently named the Valley League player of the week on the strength of 9 goals and 5 assists in a 3-game span in December. I'm sure Ben would humbly credit his teammates and coaches, but this reporter didn't take the time to get any quotes. 

Congrats Ben, well deserved!

Girls U12 squad continues inexorable march to glory

This reporter knows a great story when he sees one.  This feisty group has moved onto the District 3 final.  There is a lot of excitement around this team. This group really represents what Westwood Hockey is all about.  They are fun to watch and have a lot of talent.  I was able to connect with Coach Campbell after the win.

 

Pucky: Coach, the girls won another close game.  What was the difference tonight?

Campbell:  We seem to have a formula.  Outstanding goaltending from Jennifer Lin.  Strong defense and puck movement from our back line.  Our wingers are cutting down opportunities from the points. We won puck battles in critical spots, and again…we have Justine Connolly and Sasha Marino scoring.

 

Pucky: The girls found themselves in a hole in the first period.  Any panic in the group?

Campbell:  No panic at all.  This is a resilient bunch.  We didn’t win the puck or have good coverage on a rebound and it cost us that first goal.   But I think late in the first period, we started to shift the momentum in our favor and started to play like the stronger team.  This Quincy team was big and strong, but we started to stretch the neutral zone a bit and improved the forecheck, which led to us getting the tying goal.  I think we wore them down the rest of the second and third.

 

Pucky: Last question coach.  What is next for the girls?

Campbell: We are back to league play against a good Winchester team.  We will be in District 3 final sometime before Feb 16th.

 

Pucky: Good luck coach, we're are all pulling for the team!

Girls U12 team tastes sweet victory in 1st round of MA tourney

I caught up with Westwood U12 girls’ coach Jeff Campbell after last night’s thriller at the Canton Ice House.  The U12 Girls took on Canton in the quarterfinals of the District 3 play downs and won a tight one, 2-0.  I asked coach Campbell for his comments and here is what he had to say, “I can’t say enough, how proud I am of the girls and their effort tonight.  Every player contributed to this win against a very good Canton team.  Canton was one of the strongest teams we have seen this season and the girls all stepped up to the challenge.” 

I then asked Coach Campbell for some details about the game.  “We have to tip our hat to goaltender Jennifer Lin.  Justine Connolly got us on the board late in the first on a Hayden Cox pass and that was all of the scoring until Sasha Marino hit the empty net with 27 seconds left.  Jennifer completely shut down every threat that Canton sent her way and made some stops that she really had no business making.  I am really proud of the defense for limiting 2nd chance opportunities, the girls all won critical puck battles in front of our net and really focused on making good outlet passes.  Our wings played their best game of the season at the right time. They won battles on our ½ walls to break pucks out, chipped it out when necessary and really limited the Canton points from getting pucks to the net in the 3rd period.  I also would say our centers won more than ½ the faceoffs.  Justine Connolly, and the Marino sisters, Sasha and Julia, were great on the dot all night and that really led to us having more puck possession than Canton in what was an otherwise even game.”

When asked for final thoughts, Campbell had this to say “Well, first, a huge thank you to Coaches Paul Marino and Ray Hicks. We had talked leading up to this game and feel we were really prepared for a lot of situations and we were on the same page at all times with line combinations and situational line-ups for special teams.  I would also say that this group of girls is incredibly supportive of each other and are fun to coach.  I am so glad they are involved in Westwood Youth Hockey.  I hope their experience this season is such that they will want to continue to play together and represent the town.  We are glad for this win…but we have bigger goals to focus on now.  We are now focused on Quincy in the Semis of District 3.  Thanks Pucky – this was a pleasure and thanks for always supporting Westwood Girls Hockey.”
