The Wayland/Weston Warcats lost a heart-breaker 2-1 to Lincoln-Sudbury on Tuesday night in Watertown. The loss ends the Warcats season. On the brightside, the team showed its character by making an improbable late season push that landed them in the postseason for the second consecutive year – a first for the program. They also had 7 All-Stars and 3 players named to the All-Conference team.
The WHA would like to congratulate the ladies on a great season.

The Warcats got a big game from freshman goalie, Kylie Ham, who turned away 20 shots to shut out the Hawks of Waltham and keep the season going. The Warcats won the game 2-0 and have two games remaining on the schedule.
Due to the snow, the Wayland-Bedford that was supposed to take place this past Saturday was postponed. The big MVL/DCIII matchup has been rescheduled for Wednesday February 20th at 3pm in Bedford at The Edge. Bus pickup will be at 1pm.
Since the previous game was scheduled to be played at the NESC in Marlboro, Wayland will be considered the “Home Team” in the eyes of the referees – meaning they will get last-change – even though it is taking place in Bedford.
Forward Cara Lembo scored two goals in leading the Warcats to a 3-2 victory over Lincoln-Sudbury. The win keeps the teams postseason hopes alive.
The Wayland/Weston Girls’ team will look to keep its playoff hopes alive tonight with a win against rival Lincoln-Sudbury.
The game will be played at Rivers at 7:50pm.
Come out and support the team!
