Wayland hockey hosted its 5th 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. This year, 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.
Since the ponds never safely froze over this winter, the tournament was played at Kirrane Rink – an outdoor rink in Larz Anderson Park, Brookline. The venue proved to be a perfect plan B as the uncovered rink provided a great pond hockey feel. Continue reading

Marlboro – It was a fitting tribute to the seniors as the Warriors’ 5-1 victory over a much improved Lowell team on Senior Night clinches at least a share of the Merrimack Valley/Dual County League III title for the Warriors. If Weston ties or defeats Cambridge next Wednesday, the Warriors will win the league championship outright. Prior to the game, the Warriors honored seniors Christian Boschetto, Andrew Ludwig, Scott McCarthy, and Joe Orlandella for their contributions to the program.
