Marshfield boys lead
With an 11-8 regular season and preliminary-round state tournament exit in the rearview mirror, the Marshfield boys have made a splash on the young 2013 season.
Coach Jake Jones and the Rams are 5-0 after an 11-10 victory against Catholic Memorial in the Chowder Cup finals Saturday at Scituate High, taking home the hardware thanks to an overtime game-winner from senior Mike Carbone (four goals).
Midfielder Joe Parnell earned tourney MVP honors after going 14-for-18 on faceoffs, by Jones’s count.
It’s a nice checkpoint win for Marshfield, who last year lost to Catholic Memorial, 11-4, in the Chowder Cup championship. Jones credited the success to the team’s willingness to focus and learn the systems the coaching staff is implementing.
“The guys are doing a great job of learning and applying it on the field,” Jones said.
Nearing 300 wins
With the Westwood girls off to a perfect 5-0 start, coach Leslie Frank is four wins away from 300 for her career. She has lost just 24 games.
