Massachusetts Boys Division 2 Poll
MIAA Division 2 state champion Lowell Catholic wrote quite a story this season in winning the school’s first-ever state title in hockey. A Division 3 team since the program’s inception nine years ago, the Crusaders bumped up to D2 for this season.
Coach Tom Curran was not worried, as he told reporters following the 5-4 win over Scituate at Boston Garden in the D2 state championship game that he knew his team had a lot of talent and could be as good as anyone in D2 North.
The Crusaders proved that when a 2-0 victory over Stoneham clinched the North sectional title.
Despite the one-goal loss in the, D2 South sectional champion Scituate still had a banner season, accumulating 22 wins. The Sailors, too, have some talented underclassmen that will keep this program highly competitive next year.
#4 Canton (16-5-3) won the Davenport Division of the Hockomock League and reached the South semifinals, where they dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker to Medway.
#5 North Reading (16-3-3) took home the Cape Ann League title. The Hornets reached the D2 North semifinals, losing to Stoneham 2-1 in overtime.
