The Warriors held their 6th team-wide Super Skills Competition Tuesday night at Rivers. The squad was split into two teams: Team Black and Team Orange. Team Black, led by Mike Jones and Jack Crowley, prevailed over Team Orange 30-21 in total points. Several additions were made to the all-time record book as highlighted to the right.
Once again, the Wayland-Weston Hockey Night was a great event with an awesome atmosphere. Weston Middle School defeated Wayland Middle School 7-2. The Wayland/Weston girls varsity team played tough, but ended up losing 5-2 to Boston Latin. Grace Crowley scored both goals for the WarCats. In the main event, Wayland took on rival Weston to a raucous crowd. After going down 1-0 on a goal by Preston Grundy, the Warriors scored 6 unanswered goals and ended up prevailing 6-2. Goals were scored by Paul Curtin, Mike Boschetto, Jack Crowley, Evan Vassilovski, Joey Lydon, and Joe Lyons. Until next year, the Cup belongs to the Warriors. Thanks for all who sponsored and helped organize such a great event.

Warriors Put It All Together in Decisive Win Over Rivals
By Jared Keene MetroWest Daily News Correspondent
MARLBOROUGH — With its season at the halfway point, the Wayland boys hockey team had yet to really click over the first month of play.
Yes, the Warriors notched solid wins over league opponents Newton South and Bedford, but Wayland was still looking for that one victory that came as the result of a complete team performance. And to the delight of Warriors coach Rian Murray, that performance finally came Wednesday in a key rivalry game against Weston. Read more from article
Quick Learning Curve for Wayland-Weston Girls
By Jesse Thomas Wicked Local Correspondent
Two seasons ago, the Weston-Wayland girls hockey team was winless, but improved last year to five wins.
This season, seven games in, the WarCats already have two wins and an impressive tie against Medfield.
The two wins came against Cambridge and Central Catholic, and coach Wink Van Ogtrop credits the early-season wins to quick learning by her younger players. Read more from article
Wayland hockey hosted its 6th annual Cochituate Cup Pond Hockey tournament today – a tradition where Wayland hockey players pay tribute to their pond-playing predecessors with throwback jerseys sporting the same-styled “C” of the old semi-professional hockey team, the Cochituate Huskies. For the second year in a row, the boys wore jerseys with pink “C’s” in support of Andrea Cope, who is battling breast cancer. Andrea is the mother of former player Charlie Cope Jr. ‘14 and wife of former WHA president Charlie Cope Sr. As always, Wayland hockey would like to thank the following local businesses for each sponsoring one of the six teams: Steve Henley Memorial Fund, Mel’s Cafe, M.J. Henley Lawn Sprinklers, the Longfellow Club, M. Henley Snowplowing, and Inspired Blarney Freelance Writing. Continue reading
Thanks to all who came out to participate in the Wayland Hockey Alumni Jamboree last night. In addition to the current varsity team, there were two alumni teams. 25 alumni took part in the jamboree, with graduating classes spanning 1991 to 2017. Games were played 25 minute running time in a round robin format. The current varsity team was the only team to win both games, squeaking out a 3-2 win against Team Black on a late goal by Capt. Mike Jones. Team White defeated Team Black on a shootout goal by Nick Morgan after a frenzied 5 minute 3 on 3 overtime. All games were close and the event was a successful fundraiser for the program.
