Boys Hockey Beat Dedham on Senior Night

The Wildcats rallied back twice on Saturday night to capture their 6th win of the season against league foe Dedham.  After going down 1-0 early in the first period, Sophomore Jared Carney scored to tie the game.  Dedham took the lead once more in the second period, and took a 2-1 advantage into the third period.  A few minutes into the final period, Senior James Long scored to tie the game for the Cats.  Shortly after, Junior Nolan McManus grabbed a loose puck in the neutral zone and went in alone on the Dedham Goaltender.  He faked backhand, and scored high stick side to give the Wildcats their first lead of the game.  Junior Dylan McDougall then scored to put the Cats in line for just their second league victory of the season.  In the closing seconds, on the short-hand, Senior Cole Doherty scored from his own zone – about a 120 foot shot – on the open net to seal the victory.  The ‘Cats will play in the Woburn Tournament on Wednesday and Friday to end their season.

The Seniors for the ‘Cats are Tim Looney, James Long, Liam Lydon, Jared Carney, Cormac Howley, Cole Doherty, Kellen Hurley, Aaron Hause, Andrew Johnson, and Bobby Lesenechal. Congratulations and Good Luck in the Woburn Tournament!

Boys Hockey falls to Wellesley

Boys Hockey looked to carry their momentum from Friday’s win over Norwood against Wellesley today but the Raiders proved too hot to handle, opening the floodgates in the second period.  The Raiders opened the scoring 6 minutes into the contest and doubled their lead just two minutes later.  Milton responded quickly however with a goal from Kellen Hurley, assisted by Terrence Driscoll and Cormac Howley.  After taking a slight 2-1 advantage into intermission, Wellesley made the second period theirs, scoring three goals.  A consolation goal in the third by Aaron Hause, assisted by Tommy Noonan and Cole Doherty, made the score 5-2.  This drops Milton to 4-4-1.

The Wildcats next game is Wednesday AWAY @ Needham High School, 8:00pm.

Boys Hockey wins it late

The Doherty brothers had their stamp on the game with a pair of goals in the first and third period to beat Norwood 3-2.

It took a while for either team to click into second gear as both looked to stem any chance for the opposition rather than create their own.  Norwood would get on the board first with a goal from their captain, Carlie Gover.  With six minutes to play in the first period, Kellen Hurley found Jack Doherty through the middle and he smoothly slotted past goaltender Austin Reardon.  The second period was fairly uneventful, until a late lapse in judgement by Milton tasked them with killing off a 5-on-3.  7 seconds into the 5-on-3 and with just 9 seconds showing on the clock, Norwood regained the lead, taking a 2-1 advantage into the third period.  The Wildcats came out in the third period more aggressively than the previous two.  Just 5 minutes into the 3rd, junior Garrett Allen and Dylan McDougall combined to find another junior Nolan McManus to tie the game for the Wildcats.   The next 10 or so minutes would see the Mustangs and Wildcats go back and forth before Cole Doherty joined the party and scored off a rebound with just 2 minutes left to play.  This win brings the Wildcats back above 500 to  4-3-1.

Walpole defense too strong for Boys Hockey

The Walpole Rebels came into this game having only given up 2 goals all season, so Milton knew they were up against it.  Milton went into the second period down 1-0, where they grabbed a goal of their own, but they couldn’t keep Walpole from scoring there on out.  After a flurry of goals in the second, and a few more in the third, Walpole eventually went on to win 6-1. The lone goal was scored by Dylan McDougall. This drops the Wildcats to 3-2-1. They’ll have a week’s rest before taking on Framingham on Wednesday, 1/11.

Boys Hockey routs NQ to win the Quincy Holiday Tournament

The night after beating King Philip in the semifinal game 4-3, Milton recharged and enjoyed a scoring frenzy.  Hopefully you didn’t come late to this one as Milton scored early and often as they beat North Quincy 7-1. What’s more impressive is that Milton had 7 different goal-scorers.

With less than a minute gone in the first period, Captain Tommy Noonan grabbed a goal to put the Wildcats ahead and Kellen Hurley doubled the lead scoring on a breakaway. Then, 6 minutes into the period, Nolan McManus scored on a shorthanded goal.  Entering the 2nd period with a 3-0 advantage, Milton continued their dominance, scoring 38 seconds in, with a ridiculous cross-ice, air-born pass from McManus, settled beautifully by Garrett Allen, and calmly finished. At 4-0, Milton still kept their foot on the gas, and Hause grabbed the fifth of the game.  With less than 2 minutes to play in the period, NQ poked one back.  Another two were tallied on in the third by Milton’s McDougall and Freshman Paul Halloran to win the game 7-1.  With back to back wins in this tournament, the Boys move to 3-1-1 on the season.  Their next contest is January 4th vs Walpole.

Natick hands Girls and Boys Ice Hockey 1st loss

Natick dealt Girls Ice Hockey their first loss of the season last night, beating the Wildcats 3-2.  Captain Katherine Buchanan opened the scoring early in the first period. After lacing one of the post with her first shot, she managed to find the net for the second straight game.  Leading 1-0, the Wildcats were forced back with some good offensive movement and Natick tied the game with 10 minutes left in the period. After Natick scored again in the second, Milton entered the third period down 2-1.  With about a minute gone in the first, Natick added to their lead, though it didn’t take long for Captain Julia Scannell to make it 3-2.  Once again, the Wildcats fore check was good, rattling the crossbar mid-way through the third.  They couldn’t find a third however, ultimately losing 3-2.  This drops the Girls to 3-1-1.

They’ll enjoy a nice break before visiting Fontbonne Academy on Dec 29th, 4:00pm.

The Boys Ice Hockey Team slipped to 1-1-1 on the road against Natick. The Redhawks scored the first four goals of the game before Milton grabbed one back in the second.  After a lone third period goal for the visitors, the Wildcats would finish on the losing side of 4-2.  Check back for goalscorers.

They have a few days off before playing King Philip Regional High School on December 26th, at 5:30pm in Quincy.
