The two play-in games will be No. 7 Burlington vs. No. 10 Xaverian and No. 8 Winchester vs. No. 9 Central Catholic. Those games will be played Monday at Chelmsford Forum in Billerica. We'll have more info on that soon.
And here are the remaining seeds: Springfield Cathedral (6), Burlington (7), Winchester (8), Central Catholic (9), and Xaverian (10).
Hingham is No. 3, Malden Catholic is No. 4 and Needham is No. 5.
Catholic Memorial is the No. 1 seed while Austin Prep is No. 2. More coming.
Burlington, Xaverian and Central Catholic are all in, rounding out the 10 teams selected to this year's Super 8 ice hockey tournament. Officials are preparing to seed each team.
Add Hingham, Needham, Springfield Cathedral, Malden Catholic and Winchester to the mix. They've all been voted in.
Catholic Memorial and Austin Prep are officially in, no seeds yet.
Dan Shine, head of the Super 8 committee and Arlington Catholic coach, excused himself so there could be an odd number for the voting process. Problem solved.
It appears there's trouble in Franklin, according to Peter. They've got an even number of officials to vote on prospective teams. They're lacking a tie-breaker. More coming.
Globe Correspondent Peter Martin is at the MIAA meeting in Franklin dispatching who will be selected for the Super 8 ice hockey tournament.
I'll update here throughout the afternoon which teams are selected and any other pertinent information.
