The Bedford High School boys’ hockey team seeks its fifth consecutive win on Sunday with a 1 p.m. faceoff against Dracut/Tyngsborough at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.

“We got hot at the right time,” declared Head Coach Brian Seabury. “We’re playing our best hockey right now.”

The Bucs have a record of 6-7-1 and are comfortably within the MIAA Division 3 post-season power rankings. 

But there are challenges on the remaining schedule, beginning Sunday and continuing with a home-and-home series with Everett/Revere: a 4:05 p.m. start Wednesday at the Edge on Hartwell Road, then at Everett on Feb. 11 at 6:10 p.m. The regular season concludes with contests against Lexington, Concord-Carlisle, and Melrose.

Seabury said one key reason for the recent success is experience, as the team’s sophomores and freshmen are not the players they were when the season started. “There’s a lot more confidence,” the coach said. “Practice is a lot more fun when you’re winning.”

“We are getting contributions from different people,” Seabury continued. “The scoring is being spread out among a lot of different guys, which makes us more successful.”

Sophomore goaltender Max Marchionna has been “terrific,” Seabury said, pitching two shutouts over the four-game winning streak. “He has really been solid.”

Seabury particularly lauded his first defensive pair, senior Chris Woo and sophomore Charles Demeo. “Between the power play, penalty kills, and five-on-five, those guys are averaging over 30 minutes a game,” he said, “and they’re playing outstanding.”
