In 1972, two lifetime high school hockey fans started a weekly broadcast of Greater Boston high school games on WBOS-FM (92.9). The duo - Lance LoFaro and Darby Yaeger - called the nightly broadcasts "Hockey Night in Boston". As of late, HNIBnews - over 40 years running - has kept the scholastic hockey world on its feet with its widely-read website HNIBnews.com. In addition to HNIBnews, Hockey Night in Boston runs MassHSHockey.com, and also hosts summer tournaments showcasing the talents of scholastic hockey.

Rice Memorial still clings to the top ranking this week despite its first loss.  Rice goaltender Andrew Libby, recently named Vermont High School Athlete of the week by the Burlington Free Press, did not play in a 4-3 OT loss to South Burlington but returned to action for a 2-1 OT win over Champlain Valley Union.

Essex and BFA-St Albans are both on three-game win streaks and in the hunt for top playoff seeds.  Essex faced a tough test Wednesday night when Colchester erased a three goal third period deficit to force overtime.  Tobey Cram put away the game winner for Essex.

South Burlington earned some bragging rights by dealing Rice its’ first loss of the season but remain in the #5 spot after losing 4-1 to an improved team from Spaulding High School in Barre. 

Of Note: Champlain Valley Union held #1 Rice to one regular time goal Saturday before losing in OT.
