Wayland Boys Getting Everyone’s Best Shot
The Wayland boys’ hockey team has been moving up and down the rankings in recent weeks. Two weeks ago, the Boston Herald slotted the Warriors in at number two in their Division 3 “Super 8” poll behind Watertown.
The Warriors went 3-2 after that ranking, besting Dracut, Weston, and Shawsheen Tech, while falling to Agawam and Newton South. The losses to western power Agawam and a hot Newton South team will surely drop them in the rankings. Read more.
Wayland hockey hosted its 2nd annual Cochituate Cup Pond Hockey tournament yesterday on Dudley Pond. This year the Wayland hockey players paid tribute to their pond-playing predecessors with throwback jerseys sporting the same-styled “C” of the old semi-professional hockey team, the Cochituate Huskies.

At 7-3-2, the WarCats are sitting pretty and need only 4 more points to clinch a playoff berth. The WarCats travel to Haverhill/North Andover next Wednesday (1/29) for a big league matchup at 7pm.
The Wayland Boys hockey team was recently ranked #2 in the state in Division 3 by Jim Clark, writer of the popular Boston Herald “In the Slot” blogumn, which focuses on high school hockey. After convincing wins against Dracut and Weston, the Warriors are now in first place in the MVC/DCL III league with a 5-0 league record. They are 6-3 overall, losing only to Matignon, Sandwich, and Tewksbury – all teams who are in higher divisions.
The Warriors will host reigning D3A state champion Agawam, who has now moved up to Division 3. The 6-1-2 Brownies will be a great test for the Warriors as they are considered by many publications to be the class of the west. The puck drops at 4:40pm on Saturday at the New England Sports Center in Marlboro.
The Lady WarCats got some late game heroics Monday night from junior captain Gianna Fargnoli, who found the back of the net with 2:01 remaining in regulation to solidify the hard-fought tie with a gritty Framingham squad. Read more.
With two games in three nights, the WarCats outscored their opponents to the tune of 14-1, besting both Boston Latin and St. Joseph’s Prep. The WarCats are now a very respectable 7-3-1 on the season and will take on Algonquin/Hudson at 8:30pm at the Rivers Rink in Weston on Saturday evening.
