DS-W Boys Hockey Takes on Sandwich in Sweet Sixteen March 5

While many winter sports have ended their post-season runs (pun intended: indoor track sends runners to New Englands today and Nationals next weekend, and Wrestling apparently also has folks in post-season today), Boys Hockey had a spectacular overtime win in the Round of 32 over Boston Latin Academy (2-1 OT) and has moved on to the Sweet 16.

Seeded 18th in Division 4, this means that next up for the co-op Dover-Sherborn-Weston team is the Sandwich Blue Knights who are seeded #2. This is not going to be easy as we all know that Knights know how to wield long sharp things but that Raiders (D-S) and Wildcats also have mad skills.

What I don’t know is why the Knights are Blue. Why not just Knights? No one knows. Unless wikipedia does and then it appears that blue is a color of truth and sincerity, though I see no mention of hockey skills. We’re good here. What we are slightly disappointed in is the name of their Girls Hockey team the “Lady Knights”. Ummmm, really? I am guessing the “Ladies” really rip things up, and nothing lady-like about it. Ah well, not my fight. Remember the ladies.

The Sweet Sixteen game will be held at Gallo Arena on the other side of the Earth in Bourne at 4 pm on Sunday, March 5. You must buy your ticket here: https://gofan.co/app/school/MA14561. I have no news on a live feed but will be back if I hear something.

Go RaiderCats!
