Bedford High School Hockey Double Header on Wednesday 

February 20, 2024

The Bedford High School varsity hockey teams play their last regular season games in a double feature matinee on Wednesday at the Edge Sports Center. 

The Division 1 Shawsheen/Bedford girls’ team (12-6) takes on Division 2 Gloucester/Rockport Fishermen (14-4-2) at 11 a.m. Gloucester bested the Rams 6-0 a month ago. 

The Division 3 Bedford boys’ team (13-4-2) will play Division 1 Peabody (5-10-1) at 1 p.m.

The girls’ team is having one of the best (and one of the only winning) seasons in the history of the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School and Bedford High School cooperative team collaboration. The Rams have clinched a playoff seat for the MIAA Division 1 tournament (currently sitting in the 28 seat) and are on a five-game winning streak. 

Last week, the Rams took a 3-1 road win over Masconomet on Saturday (goals by Kayah Maloney, Sophia Demeo, and Violet Lorusso, assists by Lorusso and Becca Sobol, Elianna Munroe had the win in net), and shut out Medford, 3-0 on Wednesday at the Edge (two goals by Sobol, one from Demeo, assists from Corrine Foley, Sophia Babington, and two from Lorusso. Elise McEachern earned the win in net). 

Last week, Bedford boys’ Head Coach Brian Seabury said there was a “a key injury” in their lineup. “Hopefully, we have guys step in and contribute down the stretch and into the state tournament.”  Bedford is currently ranked 12th in last week’s MIAA Division 3 power rankings. 

Immediately following the injury, the Bucs were shut out 5-0 on Wednesday by Will Manchuso (three goals and an assist in the game), and the Concord-Carlisle Patriots who are having themselves quite the season sitting at 16-3 in the second seed of Division 2.

However, Bedford had a comfortable 7-1 win on Saturday in Everett with contributions across the roster. Ryan McGrath had a six-point game, credited with two unassisted goals and four assists. Alex Frost had two goals and an assist. James Nichol, Charles Demeo, and James Naylor also scored with credited assists from Naylor and Jackson Tucker. 

With the final regular season tomorrow for celebrated seniors (Anna McEachern, Healy Weisman, Alexis Fox, Elianna Munroe, Bryan Bai, Matt Colasante, Kenny Doucet, and James Naylor) both teams have strong futures. The girls have 14 rostered players who are eighth or ninth-grade students, and the boys’ roster includes 14 juniors. 

Seabury said, “Our seniors are a special group. They have put so much into this program and for that, I’m very proud of them.”
