The head coach of the Bedford High School boys’ hockey team says practices have been “a lot more fun” lately.

The reason is obvious. 

Last weekend the Bucs won their seventh consecutive game, 4-1, against the combined Everett and Revere high school squad. 

The Bedford season, which began with two wins in nine games, has been transformed. The Bucs stand at 9-7-1 and are looking forward to post-season play.

This is rivalry week in a sense, as the Bucs finish the regular season. “These two games will bring out the best in them,” said Head Coach Brian Seabury about his players.

Wednesday at 4 p.m. Bedford hosts Lexington; most of the players know each other well from their days with Lexington-Bedford Youth Hockey.

Saturday at 6:40 p.m., the Bucs play Concord-Carlisle, also at the Edge, which is the Patriots’ home arena as well. It will be senior night for the Bucs, honoring Sam Dinitto, Nick Tatarczuk, and Chris Woo. The regular season concludes on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at Melrose.

Seabury said the first half of the campaign was a growing experience, with the team starting a couple of freshmen and 10 to 12 sophomores. “We played some really good games and lost. That probably got a little monotonous.”

The second time through the league schedule, winning became “contagious. Nobody wants to lose. Our energy is a lot better and everybody plays a lot better when you’re winning.”

The coach hopes the team is 100 percent for the post-season, when he expects junior James Naylor will be recovered from a non-Covid illness. “He’s one of our stronger guys up the middle,” Seabury said.
